Did a search for this model via Google: nothing.
I mean, absolutely nothing came up for this product - that's never happened to me.

I had the same experience, googled, nothing.

Lots of unknowns :)

I'm sure this tablet comes under a number of names slapped onto this thing depending on the market/country/store/etc.
It's just another generic tablet from china...although capacitive touch/android 2.3 is interesting
"KROSS" is just another random "brand"

quick google search

http://www.google.ca/search?q=7-inch+ca ... 40&bih=770

after clicking a few links...the images of the tablet looks the same as the FD one... with some references to

1GHz Telechip 8902 processor
256MB RAM
4GB NAND Flash

the telechips ones are pretty terrible from what i've read. if you want to use it as an ereader / comic reader it'll likely be fine, but anything more intensive will be painful.

Seems tempting for 2.3/cap but no return option makes me very hesitant
:mad: :lol:

Factory Direct is no place to purchase anything that one might wish to return. :(

A bargain is something you don't need at a price you can't resist.

Anything from FD is by default garbage unless proven otherwise.

I would stay away from Factory Direct. Their products are generally crappy and it is close to impossible to return / refund anything even if you get a defective product.

Resolution is what I'm looking for.

EDIT: What it is, the resolution?

800x480 if it's the same as other tablets that looks similar and cost the same.

I'll pass on this, no point buying a phone OS on a tablet when Ice Cream Sandwich tablets should be plentiful by year end. But it's good to see capacative tablets at this price point, bodes well for the future :)

I wouldn't buy anything for more than $10 at factorydirect. Treat it like a lottery and be prepared to eat what you spend.

Er, the tablet isn't literally made of ice cream...
