This looks like a nice little tablet. Android 1.6 kinda kills it for me though. Is that the newest version that you can get on X86? Because on a tablet I would honestly rather have honeycomb than windows.

No but they need to do that sort of thing because there is most likely no Android market access allowed and apps have to be side loaded. It mighte be hacked evertually just keep monitoring good the old XDA-Developers.
