    Hannspree are all across Twitter at the mo....

    I'd expect them to be fairly decent, but whether they'd be anywhere near the iPad, Samsung Tab or Motorola is doubtful.

    Well we've had both the Hannspad and the miScroll in for testing over the last couple of months. Both reasonable devices for the price, the Android 2.3 is a slight handicap due to lack of proxy support but I was quite impressed on the whole. The mIscroll, for under 100 is a good buy- performs comparably with the tablets you'd be paying 300 for last year. Over all for student usage of Apps and browsing, both do the job, plus at this cost unlike the iPads, if they do start getting thrown about it won’t decimate your budget.

    Personal thoughts are with teachers pushing for iPads and other fancy tablets, give them one of these and get them to show SMT how it's going to improve teaching and learning (rather than just keeping up with the Jones'...!)

    I managed to talk myself into waiting for a while before I buy anything.

    With the MiScroll is there anyway of updating the Android system? also how well would it be for reading in the car or in bed?

    Thanks

    Hi Dan,

    Reading- you'd be fine with, I downloaded a couple of e-books on it and it was fine with some tweaking of brightness etc. compared to some touch screens I’ve seen outdoor viewing was quite good as well.

    On upgrading the Android firmware, as you can imagine the official manufacturer line is that any changes to firmware invalidate warranty, equally (insert disclaimer here!) off the record I have been told that they can be rooted. Main issue is processor limitations and compatibility, would I be right in thinking you're considering some Honeycomb goodness on there?

    Resisted the urge. Imagined scenes of my Summer "holiday" in S Africa in October and how far 160 would go.
