Author's Note

Writing about tablets is a little weird. See, there are all these tablets you've heard about -- iPads, Xooms, Kindle Fires -- but there's a whole underground world of tablets from no-name manufacturers in Asia that you can get a whole lot cheaper. They're partially cheaper because they don't have a big name brand, but they're also cheap because, well, they're cheap. The parts aren't too great. I think companies like Latte are going to have more and more trouble selling budget devices when Google is willing to sell something as powerful as the Nexus 7 for $200.
