Really interested to hear people's opinions of this. I've been looking for a small tablet for my daughter to watch cartoons and anime on. It needs to be cheap and robust so it looks like this fits the bill at £33 delivered.

Really want to know how responsive the screen is and whether it would survive a child using it....... She's always pestering us for our (expensive) phones so this could potentially save us a fortune!

Maybe for girls will be better something like this : http://www.amazon.co.uk/pocket-Android-Tablet-player-android/dp/B0086V09JW

China Price is about 36 £ with shipping. But this is more multimedia player with Android, and you can get it in pink :)

Youre lucky if that one runs its original firmware lag-free.

Nice little device. I'm considering getting the S18, but I'll wait for the reviews first. The size doesn't bother me, my cell phone is the tiny Motorola Flipout with a 2.8" screen, but I love it. I need to upgrade to an iphone in December and I'm going to miss the Filpout.

I think typing works better as the device gets smaller. I have a NOVO7 Paladin and I hate typing on that. It's too hard to hold with both hands and type with your thumbs. If everything works on it, the S18 could be perfect for me.

Unfortunately my order is delayed. So I have to wait a while before it will be delivered. ;-(

It's a resistive screen so it'll be DS style typing with a stylus on the S18 I would think. Will probably put a lot of people off but I don't mind, the important thing is the price for me.

I think the specs are excellent for the price.

My S18 is shipping too. But who know how long will travel. I was waiting 2 weeks to DX have it in stock. And in all Net , there are not a single test.

Just ordered from Willgoo, for some reason every other site bumped the price up when I selected UK£ but Willgoo's was under £32 delivered with a free 4gb Micro SD. No brainer!

Better start ripping all my Ghibli DVDs now then, should have them all done in time for Christmas....

Well it's for my little girl, she sat and watched her first Ghibli film (Little Norse Prince) when she was 18 months so her having something of her own to watch them on would be great.

Obviously there'll be all her other not so good cartoons on there but I'm also buying her the whole Mysterious Cities of Gold boxset and aim to get her the whole Ulysses 31 when I find it for a good price.

Gotta keep the quality stuff coming in for the little ones!

I'm asking myself if it's rooted. And if anyone will make a custom rom for it.
