Trans Flash or TF is the original name of Micro SD Card . Both are same.

What is a "TF" card?

re: "Extend Card     Support TF card up to 32GB extended"

Is that the same as an SD card? or CF card?


Thanks.

Apple takes in all the money to be made in the tablet hardware space. Rest of the vendors gets barely break even and makes money for Google :) . Google and Amazon has destroyed all chances of anyone making from hardware. EEs should work for free designing chips and hardware and Google is waiting to collect the benefits of that using its software and cheap device strategy

Do these tablets offer some gurantee or warrantee?? Is there a customer care service if something goes faulty?

Do they include 4 or 8 gb of NAND in the tablet? Or do they just put a SD slot (or something equivalent) in the tablet and let the user buy a card with whatever storage he/she wants?

>>  Is there new display technology coming for high end tablets?

What is a high end tablet? I have come to find that answer difficult to answer. You can have a good product with low NAND storage which pushes the prices low. It has good processor but one of the main cost factors is low, it does not make it low end. The same applies to some expensive tablets that have bloated metrics but are just expensive. Though we see this packaging as different, most of these devices have a lot in common.

If you look careully in most of these Chinese tablets, the chipset are made by Western or Japanese companies. Sure, they are packaged in China but Flextronics chipset has a lot of game in there.

I also would like to see an article about allwinner.  I never heard of them, so it would be good to get up to speed on what they are doing.
