This looks very much like an 'Apple'-designed tablet, except for the name. And the price is just about right: $399.00! The Camangi Looks like competition is going to be fierce! That 'Wonder tablet' from Apple better be priced correctly!
I'm not so sure about that 'handle/stand'. It's attached via suction cup.
But, according to the Gizmodo reviewer, it's a complete 'dud':....:
"My suspicion is that the unit is basically a digital picture frame loaded with a cell phone version Google Android with a touch screen. It came with a phone headset complete with a mic and answer button. All through the menus there are mentions of things like "baseband" and "ringtones" but it's not a phone. And the weird thing is that I don't think the processor in it is even powerful enough to run a phone. Had they marketed it as a touch screen digital photo frame with a web browser and sold it for about $100 it would be somewhat reasonable. And before you think about complaining about how hard I'm being on it, consider this: The WebStation is $390. For $199 you can get an iPod Touch. If mac made a 7 inch iPod touch it would blow this thing out of the water. Completely. Or for about the same price you could get a Dell Mini 9, or an Archos 7 – which are completely different products, but still something to consider. Or you could save your money and wait for Apple to release the iSlate and I suspect that will be the CE product of 2010. Of course there is more to the WebStation that I didn't have time to cover, but to be honest the rest really doesn't matter. The weather app is nice and works well. So far I haven't figured out how to load music on it and so haven't been able to try out it's ‘cover flow' mode. But essentially it's about as powerful as a digital picture frame, and that's very sad. Basically my plan at this point is to call American Express and find out what I can do to return and refund. In my opinion the Camangi WebStation is a total fail and I can't recommend it to anyone at any price."
Well, according to some sources the price for the parts of the Apple 'Wonder tablet' amounts to ca. $340-$350. Knowing that Apple will add just a 'tad' more, I going to go out on the proverbial limb and guess-timate $599. Too low?
