It's really a shame these products are showing up in mainstream retail
stores. People are going to buy them (or get them for Christmas), expect
an iPad, and get a total clunker. It's bad business, and it also
reflects badly on Android in general.

"Going" is a relative term, it's pretty slow and clunky and the 128Mb
RAM ceiling is too low. It was kinda fun to work through it all, though.

I would actually like to try this on a 256Mb tablet, so if anyone has
the BigW one and wants to let me (non-destructively) play with it for a
couple of hours, I'd be much obliged. :)
