$150 iPads...why not pick one up?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Just opening it up for discussion because I see a ton of them on ebay. For a measly $150 why not pick one up? ninja.gif

To clarify...I hate Apple as much as the next guy but this seems like a sweet deal for a nice clear screen for internet browsing and simple fun apps.

the chances of a $150 "ipad" being a KIRF pos from Asialand are much greater than it being an ipad

For as cheap as it that limitation won't be that big a deal in my eyes. Although I would pay another $50 to get flash.

Those that want 'em have already picked 'em up. Tablets are fairly niche anyway, they won't spread so easily.

Because flash runs so well on mobile devices, right? Flash doesn't run well on my overclocked G2. It's going to be a while before the market is really ready for flash, IMO.

I like how you didn't post the eBay link before you're probably afraid that we'd all rush in and snatch them from under you. biggrin.gif

Do they ship from China? tongue.gif

I own skyfire and I try to use it as my main browser but it doesn't like a lot of pages and I end up using safari anyway. And the flash availability to me still seems limited unless i'm doing it wrong?
