Some may consider it underpowered but at the expected $100 price point it may be a great occasional-use plaything. We'll see what the N. American price is very soon.

Shanzai.com has a decent review with some cool pictures. Big screen and low price may make it worth buying desping the slow (600MHz) processor and resistive screen. Android 1.6 but hopefully upgradeable (or completely replaced with something better down the road)
