I'd like to know how they plan on making these for $10.

In fact, I'd like to know how these are made period. How can any manufacture such a device for $60, even if the specs aren't exactly great, that is incredible.

I buy from several Chinese manufacturers that already sell Android tablets (that are pretty good, I own 3) that can sell me tablets in bulk for 30 bucks a pop - just go to alibaba.com and see for yourself yo

Sure, when it comes to anything mechanical there you need yo go to China an look over there shoulder and make sure shit is being manufactured at the quality level you want (that was an expensive lesson I was forced to learn).

But when it comes to making what are basically knock-off electronics no prob

Made in USA. Gotta factor in shipping, VAT and the weak pound. But if you want a good rig you gotta pay. I could put Cold, RYP, and you in the rig, cycle up Regent St. and not break a sweat.

That's weard-I never thought that the US would be the leader in Rickshaws (I don't think I have ever seen a rickshaw in the US). I would think Asian Rickshaws would be the best

"weak pound" man, I got raped on the rupia/buck exchange rate when I bought my new hizzy in indo last month

Shit, I wish I could bill the feds in pounds

Like the article said, you get what you pay for. The stereo in my car is a better computer.

Of course rickshaws are made in America. When was the last time anyone used anything within 500 miles from where it was made? Even my girlfriend came from 600 miles away.
