    I have not ordered from them, but the site where i found the deal is very well known for researching their deals.

    The biggest downside seems to be screen resolution - only 800 wide, but that's good enough for a lot of things.....

    Hard to go wrong for that price!

    I just ordered a couple. One for upstairs and one for downstairs. Just to sit and display the pics from the wireless security cameras.

    Just picked up one. I can leave it at the cabin and use my cell as a wireless hot spot for it. Not super speedy, but should work OK for what I want to do with it.

    One day and 9 hrs left for the deal (currently)

    Watch out, these new viruses aren't like the old ones where you just needed to go to the doc for a shot.

    I don't think it runs flash, so you won't be able to upload pics to hearth.com with it!

    Jags and BB probably know a lot more about windows CE.

    I will have to mess around with getting mobile JAVA to work on the things. I don't expect a lot from the things.

    Some people on the web have instructions for stuffing the Android OS into them.
