I like the tablet's design. Needs fresher version of Android.

Somebody please let me know why I don't see JB running on less powered devices. Is there any technical constraint?

Because those are the machines which are in dire need of lag correction. So why put ICS/GB?

JB needs lots of RAM and Good CPU : Project Butter, interactive Notification Center, Google Now... need resources to run.

You should read about JB to know more.

Not true, JB 4.2 can flawlessly run on underpowered devices like the i9000, it's the manufacturer's fault in the end. Their laziness is to be blamed.

Nice, but unfortunately Africa is a territory that full of blackberry and Nokia... Ios and android stand no chance due to their high loyalties...

Not exactly. BB and nokia thrive here because they are mostly affordable, otherwise, nobody really desires them. Everyone here knows ios and android are the best, but they are always $1000+. That's why ZTE and huawei are expanding really fast, because they bring us affordable androids

The phone looks like Acer made it...i forgot the model number but it comes with the Ferrari version too...
Not bad Africa... Everyone's making Tablets and Phones like it's a backyard tool ensamble.

Beautiful design both of them, and if VMK can slap dual core inside both of these device, better reaolution, plus with competetive pricing, can do some serius dent to chinese replica's phone sales.

The design is actually really nice for a lower end phone. I wish the new company some luck. I was wondering when Africa would get into this whole business HEAVILY dominated by Asia.
