Even assuming CherryPal can get the Android Market working again on this device, the sluggish performance and frustrating touchscreen would make this tablet a poor value at any price. If you're looking for a low-cost tablet, you may want to consider the Nook Color eReader (which isn't a tablet but can surf the Web for $249), go for an iPod touch, or shop around for an affordable Android slate with a more responsive capacitive screen. Ultimately, you're better off saving up for a Galaxy Tab or an iPad."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1289161301.usr10.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></em></p><p><em></em></p><p>While this looks like an improvement from the Augen tablet I checked out a few months back, it still doesn't look ready for&nbsp;prime-time. &nbsp;But, we are getting closer to the dream of an affordable and highly functional Android tablet, so be excited, I know I am. &nbsp;</p>
