Big things poppin this holiday season. We have C98A 3G MTK8389 & new Rockchip Dual Core Children’s tablets coming in stock soon.

I posted below that the C98 would probably have the MTK or the Allwinner A31. Zenithink  has actually put the Allwinner A31S chip in the C94 (We already have stock.) and are using the MediaTek MTK8389 chip in their C98A.  Here’s the funny thing.  The C98A will not come native with an IPS screen like the C97 did.  It still will be way cheaper than a PiPo M6 3G (About $80ish) even with an IPS screen.  But we will see how bad the regular non-IPS versions of the C98A are really that bad of an LCD.  The non-IPS C98As will come in right above $200 and the IPS versions will be about $240.  I’m doing some guesswork here as the figures that were given to me were preliminary and I haven’t seen an invoice so I can factor in shipping and other silly costs like minor import fees.  We have both versions coming to our store.  All 16GB too.  Our focus this and the rest of the year is to have all $200ish+ tablets we sell stock with 16GB.  Now of course our budget lines in the low/sub $100s probably will have 8GB, but for anything in the high $100’s and low $200’s we are focusing on buying 16GB.

Even though these tablets have expandable memory, as more and more tablet makers go with MTP datamedia layout, it adds the full amount of internal space for app installation.  So essentially you would get all 16GB to go crazy on installing apps and then use your 64GB or 32GB card as media storage.  Again, this is the future of Android so not all MFGs are going with the datamedia layout.  They should…but some of them don’t.

So links and more interesting stuff will go here as we get the products in and put them on our website.

Oh I almost forgot.  We have two different children’s tablets coming in.  Both dual-core Rockchip.  One has 512MB Ram/4GB Storage and the other has 1GB Ram/8GB Storage.  We will get them in and see if there is a huge disparity in performance.  As we are marketing them to be used by kids I think if they are close in speed we will go with the 512mb one as we will be able to retail it for $79 and that includes free domestic shipping.  Both tablets have a rubberized top to guard against drops and smashing the LCD & Touch Screen.
