I'd like to try it out, when do you think it will be available in US or India?
surprising how quickly something can catch on...The Chinese new year is a huge shopping event...and god knows the Chinese have all the money and consumers these days. Looking forward to the numbers as they continue to come out in coming weeks on this....I read several benchmark reports says N1 blows away Apple ipad on spec comparison.
