A few reasons I would not buy this tablet:
1) I just read this tablet uses Gingerbread Android instead of Honeycomb. More than 1 year ago Google said Gingerbread is not suitable for tablets.
2) No Camera. It's almost end of 2011 and most decent tablets have front and face cameras, this doesn't even have one.
3) Too small sreen size. This tablet is 7" while most successful tablets have 9.7" or 10 "
4) 8GB is too small hard drive. Most tablets come with 16GB/32GB/64GB why only one option of 8GB?
I rather spend more on a tablet than using this poor specified tablet.
