I mainly use this device as a media player to play my mkv movies on my hi def tv, or read ebooks, surf the web.
Also old school video game emulators
I don't get the feeling that it is a huge phone.
I find the touch screen quite comparable to the ipad 2 and hell for < $150 come on (I got mine for $119)
I think this meets the OP's needs as an entry level tablet
Providers Wind U8100/Galaxy S Blaze 4g(t-mobile),Mextel,Fido (v360 running Diablo53 acr firmware) unlocked and still running strong!

Other than the screen resolution, the Eken is still a run for the money! ($110 free shipping & free case & screen Protector too!) In fact in some areas it seems a bit better? Unless i am way off?

If you do buy an off-brand tablet you can get two of them that run the same as a Galaxy Tab II for the price of one Galaxy Tab. And you can even pick up the IPS versions of the tablets with 16GB instead of the standard 8GB on the GTab II.
But you have to buy from someone smart like myself. Who knows what files the market needs to tell the market what kind of tablet it is and if it has a camera, g-sensor, gps, etc...
Some of these things can be faked so more apps can be downloaded but downloading apps has nothing to do with "signing" apks or whatever the guy earlier in the thread was trying to say. There are a lot of great China tablet manufacturers. Eken is one of them. And right now the T01 (T70) is $99. And if you watch the movie on what it can do you will change your mind about cheap tablets. We already have dual core tablets that perform as good as the original transformers for mid 100s. I can only imagine how China is going to blow away name brand tablets by the end of this year.
Remember....Everything is made in China. Even precious Apple products. So don't think the Chinese make crappy items. They are stepping up their game bigtime with independent chip manufacturers who aren't trying to price gouge.
Google "t01 demo F&L superstore"
I can't post links yet because I've only posted one time. I actually found this thread looking at my Alexa links coming in.
I found one that looks half way decent on another forum for less than 100.00. has the same hardware specs as the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 but has ICS on it.
I'll try to find the pad and post it's info here. Never heard of the brand but the pad looked pretty nice for the price.
Here is the link. http://www.umilive.com/icoo-d50-delu...13-040796.html
The person who posted this is purchasing this tablet and will hopefully provide a good user review.
This is my personal recommendation.
In Gamestop they got the Acer Iconia A100 for $199. The Ice Cream Sandwich update for this device is already live, and you can update it when you download it via Wifi.
From my personal experience, this is one of the best ICS updates on any device. Its virtually bulletproof like I never had any crashes with it despite having experienced some on other devices. The experience is glitch free too, which I cannot say the same on other devices. It compares favorably, and feels even more responsive than fellow Acer tablets updated to ICS. Despite only a dual core 1GHz Tegra2, it feels like it gained two more cores from the update at least from the user interface perspective. The screen is fantastic, it is sharp and deeply color saturated. While the body is plastic, it feels very solid and has quite a bit of heft. Yet not too heavy that it is inconvenient. It has a nice balance of heft and lightness, and the design makes it easy to carry and hold, albeit it does attract a lot of smudges.
It is easy to move files back and forth with a PC using the clear.fi app on the tablet or on an Acer notebook. It has HDMI output and Acer places twin speakers that are separated to give a stereo effect. I also like tiny details about Acer tablets like putting a light on the power button which makes it easy to see and spot. The Acer A100 also has a separate notification righ shaped light that glows and reminds me of earlier Android devices with the glowing trackballs and trackpads. Not to mention Micro SD slot if you want to add more memory. Front and back camera, so you can use it for video chats or capturing videos and photos.

I am @guamguy on Twitter.
Wanted to add that Amazon has these ICOO tablets for less than 90.00 and that is with shipping. From China.
Will never figure it out how a company can sell anything from that far away and ship it to the states for free and still make a profit.
Another member of the other forum said that ICOO is a popular/good brand in china and that this should be a good device.
I hope it is, and if it is I will be buying a few more. Keep the kids out of my tablet.
I could buy 5 of these ICOO jobbers and still not spend what I paid for my Toshiba Thrive.
See this one,
3G Edition Tablet PC Android 4.0 7 inches 8G Capacitive at ohotdeal.com, only costs you $88.88, cause this product is on promotion now, time will last 11 days, after that, it would turn to $98.61
But the Icoo tablets are basically what I'm selling for just $8 more with priority shipping and support in the US.
I wouldn't buy anything, the Google Nexus tablet is due out in a week or so! $150.00-$200.00!
You have many choices for android tablets. I would recommend you to go with Zync Z990 tablet. It have Ice cream sandwich In It, It have smart 7 inch look, simple to use and one can easily organize their stuffs.
I picked up the a100 today very nice tablet for the money.
