With how similar it looks I'm astonished that no one has pinged them with copyright infringement or anything of that sort. I mean look at it, they took an iPad, stole the IE logo, and I doubt the use of the android system on there was even authorized by Google. It looks like a cheap knock off that some Chinese company made and somehow swindled Wall Greens into buying massive amounts of. Reading the reviews on it, the whole device seems like it has major issues, ie wifi, battery life, crashing, the works. In my opinion it would be a waste of money to purchase this thing. I'd rather spend a bit more and know I'm getting a legaly distributed machine and quality + a warranty as opposed to cheaping out and going with the Maylong. Just my opinion on the matter, but in the end it's not my choice if readers buy it or not.
I like how the 'file browser' icon is taken directly from the iphone app "airsharing," and the music icon is the same but with different colors. I've seen reviews of a few other super cheap tablets such as the apad, and the all have gotten poor reviews.
I have tried out Chinese knockoffs of current devices, they are almost always never worth it. Just the resistive touch screen alone kills it for me, a cheap resistive screen is a major PITA to work with.
I still really believe good Ipad competitors are a solid 4 months away (of being announced). Give me a 10" Galaxy tab with a dual core processor, 2 cameras, at least8-10 hrs battery life, and android 3.0+ then I will be happy.
while I'd never get one, perhaps it might serve the purpose of driving down prices of other tablets. personally, I'm looking forward to the release of the Adam from Notion Ink...if it ever gets here. also interesting to note, as others have, the blatant rip-offs of icons and UI. I suppose if you can't come up with something good yourself, copy it and make it cheaper
Based on the video that was posted up, It seems to take FOREVER to boot up. Like REALLY forever. Still, for 100 bucks, you can't really complain much, even I would succumb to getting one... And possibly if you got android 2.2 in there, this issue might be a thing of the past...
Its hard to see whats going for the galaxy Tab with these generic-ish chinese products appearing on the market. Samsung had better buck up or they'd lose even before they got in.
400 MHz and 256 MB RAM seem quite competent actually. For 299 dollars, thats still cheaper than anything else on offer right now. It also sports Wifi and other bells and whistles. Will be interesting to see how it all pans out in the end.
Whatever happens, I hope that Samsung can show up Apple, even if its a little bit!!
I cannot really get behind this new tablet craze. I feel as though a solid 14 inch laptop can do everything a 10 inch tablet can do just better. And as for the toy/fun factor there are a whole lot of other things I'd rather spend 100 to 600 bucks on lol.
I have had little to no luck when it comes to knock off mechandise and this look like it would no exception. I do see a market of under informed individuals that say "Hey I know that the 'e' icon brings me to that fancy thing called the internets and it looks like one of those purty Ipads I think I will swing my tha Wallgreens and pick one up for Billy for Christmas. He is going to college soon you know and the kids want all these crazy electronics now adays". Infact my parents were this way exactly when I was still a in H.S.
