If you look for 7 inch tabs with 1280x800 (most available) with support for GSM voice communication, SMS, MMS, pixel density of more than 200 ppi, 1GB RAM, AND 2G band 1900.. there is a list of 4 items: the Fonepad, Mediapad from Huawei and two light tabs from ZTE.
For me it is easy to make a choice.. AND plus the low price it is really the one I would pick and even recommend to my friends.

Finally! A wi-fi AND 3G enabled device that is priced reasonably. This should fly off the shelves when it is launched.

To be honest i can only see this being a massive flop, note to all cheap tablet producers. PLEASE STOP FLOODING THE MARKET WITH SUBSTANDARD DEVICES, nobody likes them and it gives you're company a bad name.

base on the technical spec, this device does not worth $275.

this is a very low end device that might only worth $150 or below.
