For God's sake Jim, I'm a moderator, not a forklift! :lol:

Unless they were supposed to be either thumbnails or links, I don't see the problem?

:roflmao:

I haven't posted news in a long time it seems. A way to get it in the recent posts?

It already is. At least when I click "New Posts" anyway. Am I missing something here?

Dunno, but the only thing it's got in common with the Amiga is the name, other than that it's just some naff portable device you'd find in the bargain bin at the local SuperDrug on a wet Wednesday Morning... :)

Wow! It took me a whole 30 seconds to figure out they weren't made by Apple (the screen size gave it away). But if they are any good i might buy one :)

Interesting Red,
But why don't you tell us what they are?
And what the Freescale G4 processor symbol in the upper left means.
And why the Commodore logos is at the top of the screen.

Great tease, but I can imagine multiple things.

I'm guessing... oooh, amiga branded android tablets?

You mean the news category icon? It's been a G4 chip icon for years ;)

I'll tel you exactly what it is.

An M701 Haipad with an Amiga branded wallpaper

I bought my wife an identical one for spare change about six months ago, except hers is much classier as it doesn't have the crap wallpaper.

Is there an Amiga EMU for the arm processor or whatever is in the android tablets?  According to the specs on the M701, if thats what it is, and it does appear likely, it's running a Telechip TCC8902 800Mhz cpu with 256 megs of ram, or 256eg internal memory, 128meg ram, whatever that means... maybe the 256meg is rom...  dunno..  much nicer price than a stupid ipad... I also found that comment about the screen size being used to determine it wasn't an ipad... I guess you didn't see the giant stack of ports facing us in the first picture.  That is yer dead giveaway, not the screen size.  Apple doesn't want you having ports you didn't pay extra for... silly user..

It is a tease at the moment. I only know a little myself about this tablet atm. From just looking at it I'd have to say it is Android based.

I don't work for CUSA, I just happen to be local. I get bits of information from time to time about things up and coming, like the Disney announcement they have all come true. Make sure you have an ample supply of popcorn because 2011 will be a VERY interesting year. The next couple months will make some happy, some apathetic and some will see Armageddon.

Didn't realise April 1st ran all the way into April 2nd this year... :)

Or perhaps we're caught in a time loop... :eek:
