    After reading the Engadget review earlier today I wasn't blown away by this new tablet but with a price of $200 and Amazon's great return policy it doesn't seem like a total dud. Anyone else taking the dive with me or am I on my own?

    Very very tempting. I have to see it in person before I bite. With all of the tablets that are supposed to be coming out, I have to be sure lol. I read on maximumpc.com that via is making one that will retail for around $100. A lot to look forward too .

    They talk about this thing at Androidguys.com btw.

    Personally, I think I might wait for the GalaxyPad since I'm going for the Sprint Epic, but for $150 this seems interesting...

    Yes I saw this in the circular ad that came in the Sunday newspaper but I called both K-Marts near me and they havent even gotten them in yet! I will buy this thing if it's available but nobody has it yet and you can't buy it online! It looks pretty interesting for $150...

    Why has this not been exploding in the news? The Dell Streak gets rave reviews. A 7" Android Slate-- shouldn't this be like... Idk, a big deal? I've been waiting for an "Android iPad" for a while now. This might even obsolete my desire to buy a Nook as this is cheaper.

    I have to agree. 150 for a 7" tablet isn't bad at all. Thinking of scarfing one of these up.

    Any reviews yet?

    It's not blowing up on the news because a big name isn't behind it (HP,Dell,Apple,etc...)

    The Augen website, GENTOUCH , shows that the tablet is called the GENTOUCH and has access to the Android Market.

    $150, Android tablet? SOLD!

    I stopped by the local Kmart, and aside from it being empty, it did have 4 of the device. As I am new to android, I really wouldn't know what to look for or how to evaluate the device. Took a photo of the boxes if anyone is intrested.

    If this thing is running stock Android, what are the chances of 2.2 with JIT getting on this sucker? Would think that would help with the lag, right?

    I would buy this device in an instant if it had one more feature.

    -Infrared Output- along with a remote control app

    I have never been happy with any universal remotes for my home theater. Be cool if I could have a remote with android on it. Does anybody make such a thing?

    Reviews now suggest you stay away from it. The touch screen is not responsive, requiring you to use the stylus. The interface is sluggish. Also, while it has the Android market, it doesn't allow you to download anything.

    Was the launch a failure?
    The thing was bugged+it sold out in like a second.

    They managed to create quite a buzz around it but to wait another month for it seems like they have lost the tablet race

    Anyway I guess that the whole chinese tablet race should calm down soon.

    I bought it, I'm installing updates..system not froyo! But when cyanogen completes his rom I'll add it........as far as other android tabs, this one has 800mhz which is less than my evo but more than most of the low end android pads....don't buy this expecting iPad like experience, it is resistive, uses stylus but isn't bad at all for $150 and it's fun to have an android tab! Go buy it

    The thing that kills me is that they put something on sale that wasn't available in any of the stores near me. Then they lied to me saying the thing sold out when I talked to the manager the day before who told me they never got any in and probably weren't going to get any in at all.
