    Nope, knockoff iDevices won't be running any iOS, so you won't be able to install apps from the App Store. But the one you linked to is running Android, so it can probably run apps from the Android Market.

    Hmm, so what exactly could I install do you think? Are there jailbreaking methods or third party apps for Android for free?

    Thanks again for the responses.

    Well, there are a lot of apps in the Android Market, so you can install those. There's this thing called 'rooting' which is the equivalent to jailbreaking but I'm not completely sure, you'll have to look into that. Also, Google has no approval process for the Android Market, so a lot of apps are crap, but there are still some quality apps in there.

    Thanks a ton man. And last thing: do you think it would actually be worthwhile if I got the one that I showed for $99?

    Personally, no. My main reason is that it's a knockoff, so I don't really know what I'm getting. Sure they list the specs and what OS it runs, but I would like to know how well it runs or how well it's integrated with the device.

    Well, I've worked with the website before, and basically if I want to return an item for any reason I can with free shipping. So there is basically no risks but time.

    If you want my humble opinion I think you should buy a mainstream android device, might as well buy something you know is going to be reliable and is not a known knockoff of something else.
