Hmm.. Well it's an Allwinner chip, 1.2ghz (overclocked from 1ghz) with 1gb ram, from memorey I think 8gb internal?
It's pretty much the same specs internally as my Eken t10a. My eken is 10.1" however, but I don't get it - 10.1 inches but smaller actual space than
But I paid $180 aud for mine, a few months ago. The Allwinner chip is surprisingly still supported by the mod/firmware community, there are a few
cyanogenmod versions for the various screen sized allwinner chipsets. IF you're into that..
If not, you don't need to worry.
As long as you have Market (if not, you may need to root and side install it) and if you have problems with the tablet and market refusing you apps,

you'd have the same. a simple hardware info add can tell you more..
good choice, but I can understand your fear with the no name.
I did that a long time ago, bricked the first tablet I had in less than a week, had no idea what to do. worked out I could splice the batteries
together and get more time. ha.
Pretty much impossible to brick the allwinner models, livesuite (as long as you get the usb drivers in windows installed ok) fixes any failed firmware
Probly more info than you need, or care about
11am, must be time for bed.
