Apad Tablet Differences

Just wanted to clear up a few questions – Apads come in three different batches, and we have been shipping from Batch 3, due to the low availability of previous batches.

Batch 1:
No camera, Hynix flash memory

Batch 2:
With camera, Samsung flash memory
Also known as the red LED Apad

Batch 3:
Same as batch 2, but with blue charging LED (typically), relocated USB hosting port, 9v charger, improved performance

Specs after the break, from Hiapad.
