Mine arrived liao. Not too bad. Have to install Google playstore on your own.

Now reading up to change the launcher to remove those bo liao apps which u can't move or uninstall.

For the price of usd49.99, pretty good.

Sorry, newbie here... One more question. If I found one book that I like, but its only in Amazon.cn, does that means I am still unable to download the e-book even if I have the Kindle on hand..?

Oh ok... Thanks...

Then, for the purchase of e-books, does it limit to the region you are in...? I mean, if I saw a book, but its only available in Amazon.cn, how would I be able to make a purchase from Amazon.cn...?

Thanks again...

If it's meant for reading, browse web or giving to grandparents to read news, it's a perfect tablet.

Great battery life too

I tested leaving it overnight, it seems to deplete battery very much. From 80% to 13%.

2nd night from 60+ to 45%.

Unfortunately their version of Android do not allow me to check which app is the culprit.

If you're power user, avoid it.
