They do come with MSN, and the QQ IM, which is all in Chinese, I imagine the video chat does work with the Chinese QQ. They will not run Skype or of course any 2.1/ 2.2 Apps.
More technical details:
OS Android 1.6
Boot Notice shows .... WMT 2.0.1_105
Memory Ram ... 256 Mb
Firmware .... 1.6
Kernel .... 2.6.29-00236-g4f8dbbb-dirty
They do have the Android OS Open Source Notices.
I suspect this OS is common to some phones, so if they could be identified then an upgrade of that would or should work, There is no manufacturer shown, and very little technical detail either. Having a camera the normal phone camera/ video works.
Like you I think they would upgrade to say 2.1 or 2.2 but no further given the CPU speed.
Any further help on upgrading would be very welcome, as I expect there are a lot of these Generic Tablets out there and many want information on safe upgrading. I have heard though that some tried random ROM Flashes and the units have totally locked, of course with no backup of the original OS this is very risky.
Since this is a Android OS I wonder if they could offer advice. Thanks for anything furthe
