Despite having a presence at CES, my favorite deal-a-day site, Woot.com didnâ€™t manage to snag any of those fancy new tables that were put on display. They did however, managed to secure a stock of Augen Gentouch78 android devices that will let you jump into the Android game rather cheaply, but also fit snuggly into the â€œyou get what you pay for categoryâ€.
The biggest letdown of the Augen Gentouch78 is definitely the resistive nature of itâ€™s 7â€ 800×480 touchscreen. You wonâ€™t have as good of an input experience as you would on a capacitive touchscreen device. Next to this, the 256MB of RAM and 800MHz donâ€™t remotely stack up to any flagship mobile device, but youâ€™ll be getting Android 2.1 which isnâ€™t too shabby. Letâ€™s also not forget to mention that apps wonâ€™t install through the Android Marketplace, despite the fact that it comes pre-installed. Iâ€™ll point you to Engadgetâ€™s review of the device before you consider this $109 purchase. And letâ€™s not forget, Woot deals are only good for one day (or until stock runs out) and this offer will vanish at 1AM EST.
And hey, even if you arenâ€™t interested in the Augen Gentouch78, jump over to Woot.com to read their always-witty product description for some tablet related laughs.
