"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."
