Looking for an entry-level 720p 10-inch Android tablet? What about one with a built-in Ethernet port? We just discovered this mystery device going for $160 on eBay and sporting a 1GHz ARM 11 Cortex A9 processor, 4GB internal storage, 3-megapixel camera, 512MB RAM, a “10.1 inch TFT Super slim 16:9 Touchscreen”, and built-in WiFi and ethernet port. It also bears a striking resemblance to the industry’s leader.

Nobody seems to know much about the “MID M1006S Android 10.1 Tablet PC”. A quick Google search revealed Shenzhen, China-based manufacturer HongKong Haokey Tech Co LTD appears to be behind the tablet. They currently have an Alibaba listing (20 units or more) which is more than likely the source for those reselling the device online.

Don’t expect a comparable experience to current gen leaders in the Android tablet market, however. Early reviews from CNET forum posters prove the resistive touch screen limits the experience, to say the least. Forum poster “R. Proffitt” notes, “No pinch or two finger zoom. So much does not work on resistive pads”.
