TCL iOpen-081A Handheld

TCL called the pocket internet cafes. My mind immediately recalled those cheap Windows CE "UMPCs" displayed at CES, which were basically poor quality no-name devices that were never heard from again, but after some googling turned up a number of results from relatively well known Chinese tech sites, I decided to look into it further.
I can't make heads or tails of the "pocket internet cafes" moniker, but the 9.1-ounce device has been christened the iOpen-081A by its maker. Most of its specs are nothing to write home about (Win CE 5.0, ARM926 processor, 2GB NAND flash, 64MB SDRAM), but its integrated wi-fi, GPS, USB host/device ports, digital camera (still and video), and SD card slot aren't too shabby for 2300 yuan (~$336).
The TCL iOpen-081A is one interesting handheld device, although many people might dismiss it as a simple Windows CE-powered UMPCs

It is powered by Windows CE 5.0 operating system and will retail for approximately $336. I think you'll be able to get a decent surfing experience with this device, although I would rather fork out a wee bit more and get a much more satisfying experience with a netbook. The price point is really strange, since the branded Mylo 2 is cheaper and seems to be much more desirable.
