Seems there’s a new Chinese Android tablet hitting the market every day. In the latest news, the folks at Shanzai.com spotted a bunch of sub-10 inch tablets running the Google Android OS. None of these are quite ready to take on the Apple iPad yet, but that’s mostly because of 2 features they are lacking:
1. They’re only available in China right now
2. Google does not allow non-smartphone Android users to access the Android Market, limiting the number of third party apps you can run on these tablets
When will they offer these tablets outside of China and will they eventually be able to connect to the Android market and download applications and games, only time will tell but I am sure it’s going to be in a near future.
