    Well, So its all nice and all. Even better once it runs Android 2.2 Froyo. However, its surprising where 1GHz processor are the std and easily available in many High End cell phone, this PAD device just has 600 MHz. One of the reason where people are gonna back off with it. Had it been 1GHz, it could really have given tough time to AcerTab, GalaxyTab or even Ipad.
