Best CHEAP Android Tablet?  - Review of the My Tab from Optus


The Budget end of the Android Tablet marketplace is hotting up with some fierce competition, one of the newest to enter the ring is the “My Tab”, built by ZTE, branded by Optus and churning along with a 600Mhz CPU and Android2.1 available with pre-paid date plans, it’s a contender for the best value android tablet on the cheap end of the spectrum, so lets put it through the review gauntlet and see how it shakes down.

With WiFi and 3G connectivity, you can surf the net, play games and watch videos on its quality 7″ resistive touch screen.

    I like your reviews. I got the Toshiba Thrive for ten dollars more because of the Black Friday sales. Talk about more bang for your buck. =)
