Foxconn iWonder Android tablet to sell for just $100 (in China)

Looking to spend some quality time with Google Android, but don’t feel like plunking down the cash for a smartphone and then shelling out more money each month for a data plan? I already told you about one relatively affordable option this week: The Archos 5 Internet tablet which starts at just $250. But Taiwanese PC maker Foxconn has an Android-powered tablet that cuts that price in half… twice.

The Foxconn iWonder tablet is a $100 tablet that runs Google Android 1.6. It has a 10.1 inch, 800 x 600 pixel resistive touchscreen  display and a Marvell processor. You don’t get 3G connectivity with this budget tablet, but you do get WiFi.

The plastic case looks a little Fisher Price, and guarantees that the iWonder tablet isn’t going to take much market share away from Apple’s upcoming iPad which is a bit more refined looking. But it’s hard to ask for more from a $100 tablet.

    At that price it is worth buying just to see what it can do. Hope it reaches our shores.

    If you stop to think about Foxconn could put every oem out of business just by selling there own for less money. They build many of computers we but anyway. I think they do sell mobo's and a few other items. It would be interesting.

    If they sell it here for the same price, it might do well. It looks interesting and would be neat to try it out.
