The old OS version sucks, but the dual-core processor is kind of nice.

Another new Android tablet will hit the Home Shopping Network in November. (The Digital Reader) The Next2 is made by Nextbook USA and has a 7" LCD display. The launch OS is Android 1.5- absolutely ancient, but not unworkable. This thing has b/g WiFi and the Boarders eBooks app pre-loaded. It has a G-Sensor and a dual-core 600 MHz CPU. RAM sits at 128 MB.

Aside from that surprisingly nice processor, this thing is very much a low-end device. That lack of RAM is going to hurt any task beyond basic e-reading / browsing. The Next2 packs 2 GB of storage and can take up to an 8 GB microSDHC card. You can buy it for $199.
