    Hey I’m glad!  While these things suck in many ways, especially now that you can get something similar with a capacitive screen for the same $200 they go for now, I actually use mine a fair bit as a desktop handsfree  skype device and as a media player with various stereos and in the car.  I never activated the sim but might if I can use it has a hotspot … it’s an honest little gadget that just needed a capacity, multi-touch screen from day one.

      ‘An honest gadget’ is pretty much why, when I found them still in stock, today, at Myers, Queen Street Mall, for $149, I snapped one up fast. eBook reading, and web browsing on my LG optimus One is a pain with its small screen. For me, this inexpensive 7in tablet fits the bill perfectly. Finding that I can bring mine up to a tolerable version of Android, from the outset, is a bonus. :)

        Oh that’s a sweet price, especially from bloody Myers.  I paid 300 about a year ago and at that time was happy.  If you accept the limitations before buying, $150 is a total bargain.  For $175 total, you can have a tablet with a 16gig in it …

    Love it when companies release a update and its still an outdated version!

    Very poor but standard for telstra. The pretty disappointing for huawei! Might rethink my mediapad purchase!
