Yep.  I've been watching the China tablets for over a year.  It's funny how
people trust brands they know, but won't buy directly from China, even if it
saves them hundreds of dollars.  I bought my Viewsonic gTablet partially
because of the name, but mostly for the Tegra2 cpu.  Then I found that it is
just a re-branded Malata Z-Tablet from a China manufacturer.

I recommend watching device demos on YouTube.  Especially un-boxing videos
by real end-users.  You can see the performance and what you actually get.
 Support???  Forget it.  You have to be fairly technical, or at least not
afraid to crack open the case yourself if there is a hardware problem.
 Several of the China companies will send you a replacement part during the
warranty period to save the back-and-forth shipping and waiting for repair.
 Not so bad, in my opinion.
