Very decent and fast Android 4.0 (small) tablet – ICOO D50 7.0" Capacitive Screen Android 4.0 Tablet w/G-Sensor / Camera / Wi-Fi / External 3G - White Reviews

Pros:
Small, light, surprisingly good battery life (when compared to other sub-$100 Android tablets); latest Android 4.0.4 with kernel 3.0.8+; Play Store supported; Flash preloaded (might be an outdated version, not integrated with Play, though might be wise Adobe dropping Android Flash support...); YouTube shows even HD videos surprisingly smoothly, so 1GHz proc plus 500MHz GPU seem to do their job.
Cons:
Touch screen sometimes a little finicky, and there seems to be no way to recalibrate it (built-in). LCD viewing angles could be better and LCD (LED?) backlight is not among the brightest, and the best viewing angle is landscape somewhat tilted, i.e. the front bottom down---actually looking 100% directly towards the LCD you will miss the dark spectrum of the colors.
Other:
Suirprisingly fast and low-cost WLAN Android tablet, small portable size. The USB cable provided only seems to support connecting to a PC or other USB host---cannot see how external 3G dongles or perhaps external Ethernet USB dongles could work---the Android seems to have support for "Ethernet" if hardware were there.
Bottomline:
A nice, good, and small WLAN net/media browser for a very good price---I wonder when the next batch will be out, since now (23-Oct-2012) this item seems to be "Sold Out".
