If Telecom are selling it, that tablet would be the pill that makes you ill.

Yuck, hideous telecom branding.

No worse than Vodafone branding of devices.

The major drawback to this device (apart from the fact that the OS is outdated - but that could probably be remedied) is the onboard memory: only 512MB.

That's enough for the Android OS, plus Adobe Flash, Google Maps, Gmail, Swype and less than a handful of other apps. Installing Google Earth on top of those 4 mentioned would just about suck up any free space left.

Then you have to start looking for applications that will run off the SD card. Not an easy task.

Does anyone know what the music is on the TV ad which I think features one of these devices?
