They've told us who they want to sell it to, and keeping the price low. Talking about things like 3G is useless because it's out of scope ;) (Requirements are my day job, you don't understand how frustrating it is when people go off track!).

@stirkac Is cost not the issue here though?


i'd rather have price bumped slightly then slow-ass unsuported cpu + development costs something, buying all-in one is just packing.. not to mention huge shortcut on android porting

1.these are all well supported devices, tegra is expensive and chinese "no name" processors suck.


Chinese 'no name' processors do not suck. They are legal ARM clones that perform as good as chips from Samsung etc. Snapdragon is just a brand name for Qualcomms ARM7 platform. Tegra2 costs too much.

Exactly. Also the Kogan is just a rebranded Dropad A8 which has been on the market for several months now.

I'm fairly sure AndyPad will produce a decent tablet at the right price.

I have an iPhone 3G, which has only 128MB, I think. 512MB is probably a normal mark right now and 1GB as maximal. I haven't seen a phone or a tablet, which would have 2GB. Maybe 256MB might be a bit low.

Also why not use Android 3.X? I don't think 2.3 is the right way to go. I am current working with Cortex-A8 720Mhz CPU, and it's quite a powerful machine I must say.

1.android isn't comparable to iphone since it runs objective-c apps, and android has Dalvik VM to run apps
iphone will thus use less ram and will be slower without optimizations, android will use lots of ram and be quicker(if we compare it on same HW)

2.3.x is currently tegra only afaik.

Just in case no-one noticed the AndyPad site has been updated with some specs......and a price!

1.2Ghz A8 processor (I assume single core)
Android 2.3
HMDI out

All for £129 (about 146 Euros or $210 for any yanks out there)
No word on if that includes VAT and the big question of what type of screen it is.

Advent vega with a smaller better screen 200£ range = WINNING

No point going into the £100 range because the chinese will always dominate

Its all about mid range...
