"Beijing-based international online reseller LightInTheBox.com
announced it has had two months of surprisingly strong sales of a
seven-inch, $140 Android tablet. The aPad Android Tablet runs
Android 1.6 -- with Android Market support -- on Samsung's
ARM11-based 667MHz S3C6410, and offers 1GB of flash, an SD slot,
Wi-Fi, and an 800 x 480-pixel screen, says the company.
"LightInTheBox.com, which claims to sell more than fifty
thousand products in more than 160 countries via its online store,
does not list the manufacturer of the aPad. The tablet does not
seem to tally precisely with any of the low-cost Chinese Android
tablets we've covered this year, many of which are listed in the
links at the end of the article."
