“With so many options out there, we set out to make picking your portable computing device an easy choice. Sure, your smart phone does a lot. But let’s face it, a small screen makes it hard to navigate and even harder to enjoy quality video. Then there’s the laptop. You could spend hundreds of dollars more on a laptop. The fact is, a tablet can do 90% of what a laptop can do, but a laptop can’t do even close to all that a tablet can do. And when it comes to tablets, the X10 AirPad has all of the features you could want. It’s like you’re fitting a movie screen, MP3 player, e-book reader, Internet, video game console and more into your pocket. Weighing less than a pound (that’s just over HALF the weight of an iPad), about 1/2 inch thick and built tough and compact, you won’t find a better tablet for a better price.
Powered by Android 2.3, the X10 AirPad is equipped with a powerful 1.2 Ghz Rockchip 2918 Cortex A8 processor, has a brilliant color screen, 4 GB onboard memory (plus an additional 32 GB with microSD card, not included), a built in camera/video recording device, and access to more than 250,000 apps in the Official Android Marketplace. The AirPad will stand toe-to-toe with any other tablet on the market. Go ahead, compare the features. When you pencil it all out, you won’t find a better tablet at a better price. ”
