I believe that "is" the Andypad ... just cheaper even including postage from China
Yes you are right. It's chassis has seen a slight redesign but they are the same. The regular andypad is the Teclast P71 with again a slight chassis redesign.
I agree some what that that the Andy Pad's arrival may be a little late. Dual core tab pricing is dropping rapidly, mind you Lenovo and others still feel there is a market for single core A8 and A9 variants, and while not as powerful as their dual core counterparts they are still useful.
Reminds me a bit of how things have changed since the first gen Atom N270 powered netbooks, netbooks nowadays are so much more powerful. I'm sure in a years time a single core cortex A8 will be a relic.
I think the main thing though is software really, any device seeing a decent well optimized honeycomb port automatically becomes more appealing. Suppose we will have to see what ICS brings though in terms of merging the OS's.
The China market is an absolute mine field for those lacking knowledge, so it is hardly surprising that we are not seeing so many devs picking up the hardware on Modaco. Nevertheless there is some decent stuff out there as mentioned before. Andy Pad actually chose very well with the Teclast T760 it is definitely one of the front runners in the China market at the minute, all things considered.
Personally I'm thinking I may sit tight for the moment when it comes to purchasing a tablet. After using MIUI on a Galaxy S on the weekend, I am saving all my money for the Xiaomi MIUI phone, best android build in the world right now if you ask me, can't look at 2.3 on my ZTE blade any more with out thinking how crap it looks and functions compared to MIUI.
