Tons of Google Android 7" Tablet on eBay

I'm looking at eBay right now and there are tons of 'Google Android 7" notebook Netbook Tablet PC UMPC WiFi' being marketed for about $100 (see attached screen shot). Sounds like a good entry into the Android app world, or even just a little gadget to surf the web.

Sounds like they were originally Windows CE devices with Android OS loaded on them.

Does anyone have any experience with these devices?

I think it's only a matter of time before you get 2.1 on something like that..

Perhaps the only debate between Apple vs. Android tablets will come down to Adobe Flash. How ironic? At that point Apple will likely embrace Adobe Flash like it did with unprotected MP3's on iPods.

Does YouTube use Flash 10 as well?

Youtube only requires Flash 9 if you are streaming the videos with Flash.

On mobile devices, they serve h264 encoded MP4. There're custom Youtube apps on iPhone, Android, etc.

Here's another Android tablet from a more known brand.

a video of it:

this one has a much long battery life (if the claims are true). it might be better supported as well. but at $199. 2x the price. archos is also releasing more tablets from 3" to 10" in the summer.

My friend, Sasha, found this device on Amazon, shipped from U.S. The lowest cost is $157, but maybe better if you are more comfortable with Amazon and shipped in U.S. You might get it faster too.

Title: Android Tablet at Your Local Retailer
Weblog: GearHack
Excerpt: The Augen GenTouch tablets and netbooks that shown up in K-Mart's last month really made a wave. They flew off the shelves before most of us even knew about its availability. And so my co-workers and I drove out to K-Mart last week, hoping that they get more into the store. And there was still none . . .
