Re: Will the tablet world change now?

If you say so, just that there are so many such reports including statements from Asus itself. Only Asus really knows for sure and they may not be inclined to be forthcoming on the exact figures.

Re: Will the tablet world change now?

I am still trying to relate to the question posed by the OP.

It is coming clear that the selling price of the Nexus 7 is either at or below cost of manufacture.

So how is competition supposed...

Re: ice cream (android 4.0) tablet for $99

It would be interesting to count the number of corners that Asus had to cut in order to meet the Google determined price point.

Very good point and one which has bugged me for years and continues to do so. The more I read and observe, the more things are not what they seem

It seems especially clear in the US. For example...

Re: ice cream (android 4.0) tablet for $99

That will teach me to pay more attention to specs. Because they are so ubiquitous and cheap, I had assumed at the back of my mind that the inclusion of CPS and Bluetooth was automatic.

And used for what exactly?

I have it installed and update it when required but i have no idea what it is good for. On Android specifically, that is.

All in all it seems quite nice and especially the price. I just feel short changed on the specs.:(

Re: Will the tablet world change now?

Yes I follow the logic in that.

However all things such as manufacturing costs etc., being equal, the fact remains that Microsoft’s own tablet can afford to be $85 cheaper than anyone else’s...

Re: Has Nokia gone INSANE by targetting LOW END market?

I see that Nokia has just sacked another 10,000. How many is that in total this past year?

Pretty soon the company won't have enough staff left to make anything.

Re: Has Nokia gone INSANE by targetting LOW END market?

Nokia is in such dire straits that it needs to sell something/anything to somebody/anybody.

Beggars can't be choosers.

Thanks for the advice on how to buy. My other concern is what to buy especially as regards Chinese cpu/gpu chipsets.

From what I can see, the chip to hold out for is the Rockchip RK3066.

Re: ice cream (android 4.0) tablet for $99

My last craplet was a SmartQ 7 three years ago so it might be time to test the waters again. My interest lies with 7'' devices.

Streak 7 maybe, but Streak 5 no. Not just yet at any rate. Maybe ask for a money back guarantee?

Re: Dell Releases What n900 Should Have Been (Dell Streak)

Would that be the Maemo that I have on my N800?

There must have been some serious changes taking place while I was distracted elsewhere.

How do I install this superior Maemo on to my N800...
