Tablet PCs have been around for years, used extensively in health care and other fields. This year was already predicted to be a huge year for tablets reaching the consumer market, providing stiff competition to hugely-popular notebooks. And these years, there are also so many China "Shanzhai" tablet PCs come out, which offered at very competitive prices, for example, you can use $78 for getting an Google Android 2.2 MID tablet PC at Pickegg-one of the largest online stores.
The iPad is currently the most obvious example of how tablets are going main stream, but that's not to say that all tablets released from now on are guaranteed to be super awesome. Indeed there are some real stinkers out there. Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1V and TCL OPENPAD 6-mm Ultra-thin 7-inch 2.0MP ARM9 DSP Dual Core PK2818 Android 2.1 tablet PC.
TCL openpad is a new entered power of tablet market, and this 6-mm ultra-thin tablet PC is specially designed for kids. This openpad with Android 2.1 operating system, features a 7-inch LCD capacitive touch screen with vivid displaying, the 1024*600 high resolution and multi-touch technique, giving you more enjoyable operating experience.
Why your kids will love this tablet PC? It is 6-mm ultra-thin and the net weight is only 330g, which mean the device is small enough to hold with one hand by a small child, slip in a laptop bag side pouch; they can even carry around all day long.
Besides of the light weight, the 7-inch LCD capacitive touch screen is so sensitive, which enable your kids enjoy everything with their fingertips. They can play some cartoons like Spongy Bob when they are bored.

And there’re also some educational games to develop their IQ and keep them occupied. Moreover, its Android 2.1 OS and WiFi and 3G functions, which are so welcomed by teenagers. And the configurations are not as great as PCs’ which means they can use search all the information they need with it.
Essentially it's a Chinese branded device, not the cheap China clone ones, and you'd be wrong if you think that means it's not very good. It's a nice size and it's usable, it can not compare with ipad, however, the price is $242.77, not $400.
All I see are companies trying to copy others, but this openpad with its own features. Every single one of these tablets has decent specs but people tend to buy an iPad just because of the name, which is quite naive if you ask me.
