In fact, this here company claims to be the world's largest manufacturer of LED / LCD monitors, but it's tough to say how that type of expertise will translate in the tablet arena. The newly launched Breeze bucks two screen size trends and splits the difference -- there's an 8-inch touchpanel here, complete with an 800 x 600 screen resolution and a row of physical keys along the right edge."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1294157271.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>The "low cost" tablet market sure is getting crowded these days.&nbsp; It seems like every manufacturer thinks they can put together some hardware, slap Android on it and it will see.&nbsp; I am also willing to bet that many of these tablets are the same under the hood, and just rebadged as it comes out of the factory.&nbsp; The Breeze does stand out a bit as instead of the more common 7" and 10" screen sizes, the Breeze comes in at a cool 8".&nbsp; Still, I think it is a welcome addition, especially since it should be available for under $200.&nbsp; Almost cheap enough to be an impulse buy!</p>
