aPAD tablet available for €106 + shipping

Laggy Android 667MHz and 800MHz available
The people at lightinthebox.com have got things right. They want to sell you an Android Tablet PC called aPAD for €106 + shipping fees, which sounds quite reasonable.

This 7-inch tablet comes equipped with a Samsung S3C6410 processorat 667MHZ (SMQ5454). It is not the fastest around, but it will make things work. It also packs 256MB memory and 1GB of internal storage.

Of course it has Wifi and it can surf the internet and guess what, it even has a camera. It supports 800x480 resolution and has a memory card slot, and two USB 2.0 ports and let's not forget the headphone slot as well as DC in.

On the video showed below it looks laggy, but hey it cost as much as it is supposed to. Imagine what these guys could offer for €300, which is the right price for some dual core ARM, with 32GB memory as well as performance better than the iPad. Let's see if anyone can get this right.

A few bucks more can get you the version with 2GB and for €125 plus shipping you can get an ARM 11 800MHz version that will get to most parts of Europe in three to five days for reasonable 25€ shipping fee. Let us know if anyone grabs one.

You can check some details and buy one here.

seems like the price is right already and upgrades are cheap too. Shipping fee is what would suck.

Yeah, to bad for 25€ shipping, otherwise I think this is finally something that's priced right out of all those netbooks/tablets and such. You could use it to browse web, email, transfer content from camera/camcorder to external USB drive, ebook reader, mp3/video player, and so on.. Pretty neat for vacations and "on the go".. Not to mention - without shipping it's cheaper than most phones :P

But it's got just 2 hours of autonomy (battery), and by the user's comments, seems that they've got a bit of software problems.. But still, it's a sign of things to come. 100€ toucscreen portable PCs.. something I've been waiting for last .. ~8 years :D

I don't doubt the software problems. Fudo has been mentioning in articles MS7 and Android OS is not ready for tablet til they work out all the bugs.. think it's Android version 3.0 that should work well on tablets so who knows maybe even this guy can play a decent video after some upgrades. It should I mean a PIII 1 ghz with same amount of ram on a higher res monitor plays videos so come on MS/Google get your stuff in gear so we can get cheap tablets.

Yes, lets solve the laggynes with better hardware. Have you ever wondered why 1. gen iphone doesn't lag? It had way worse hardware than this tablet.

It is a software problem! We need harwdare acceleration of userinterface!
