Anybody know what the processor on this bad-boy is? Single/dual-core? Thanks!

It comes with 2.2, but I can upgrade to 3.0, right?

Also, does it do GPS?

What about an ebook app?

so is this a phone or more like a ipod touch?

Would you get this, or the iPad Touch?

I’m 99.9% sure these will be rootable to install cyanogen or another android os version as per the recent gtablet. honeycom may not e worth it on a small thing like this

Thinking about getting this or one of the cheap tablets on ebay that are about $150. Any ideas people?

What is this thing? A phone without the phone?

I’m pretty sure it’s samsungs single core 1ghz hummingbird processor, but I’m not sure, as I didn’t think this would ever be available in the U.S.

Samsung used to be hard to root, what about this? Would like to try to use this as VOIP replacement for cellphone.
