CherryPal will be the first to admit that the CherryPad is a low-end device. I mean, getting a fully-functional Android device under $200 is a task, though the numbers of such devices are beginning to swell. But when just a few more dollars could get you a Archos 70 or even a Nook Color, I wonder whether cutting the price that far produces much more in the way of value. According to Hot Hardware’s review, it doesn’t really sound like it.
That hasn’t stopped people from ordering this thing, because hey, it’s light, it’s cheap, and it does the basic Android stuff. But it sounds like if you want a quality Android experience, at the moment it’s far more practical to spend just a little more and avoid the troubles that accompany cost-cutting measures.
