Amazon Android App Store Goes Live, Works In China…For Now

Last week Amazon’s Android App Store finally went live, and it was about time too. All of us Android users in China have basically been stuck using Google’s (unfortunately crappy) Android Market. The problem with the Android Market isn’t the number of apps, or it’s ease of use. It’s problem is the fact that Android users here are not allowed purchase any of the paid apps available.

Powerful 1.2Ghz Android Tablet Made in China Makes an Appearance (Video!)

This awesome looks like 8-inch tablet was spotted in Shenzhen over the weekend. It’s stocked with a 1.2Ghz Samsung S5PV210 ARM Cortex-A8 processor, 256MB of RAM, and 8GB of on-board storage. Sadly the prototype only got a resistive touchscreen with an 800 x 600 resolution. According to the manufacturer, the production version of this tablet will come with a capacitive screen *fingers crossed*. The tablet also comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera, an HDMI out port, 1080p video playback capabilities, and runs on Google’s Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS. No word on the name of this bad boy yet, but if I had to guess I doubt it’ll be anything unique. Unfortunately no word on the price either, but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.
