    This is cool. I wonder if it will have full access to the app store?? Or if it will be limited like the fire.

    I'd have to try it out. The budget Android tabs I've messed with have been less than desirable.

    Pretty Nice for only 100 bucks. And it looks to have ICS on it as well. I would be interested to see what everyone thinks about it.

    It will have full access to the Google Play Store, but I doubt it will access to Amazon's appstore, if that is what you meant. :)

    why wouldn't it have access to the amazon store? I've always just installed the apk on my phone.... so you could probably download the apk, install it, and have full access to the amazon app store...

    at least I don't see why not.

    giving it a try

    I ordered one. Not because I need another tablet (my kindle fire works great for me). But because of the price. Even if it is not what I would expect it still is running ICS.
