I just tossed my Augen Genbook 108 up on ebay. Low starting bid. Good luck.

Wow...you must not want to sell it really...I mean honesty is one thing...but you blasted it! Here is how I would have worded your auction:

"Augen Genbook 10.2" Android laptop for sale. Search the web for reviews and specs on this thing"

BTW, it sure looks a lot like my old Wabook Sky. Is it an 8505 processor? Did you ever consider flashing it with the Wabooks image and turn it into a CE machine?

And "except refunds" should be "accept refunds"

Rich, you know the last thing RTFM wants to do is change a non-CE device into a CE device. (And maybe he not only won't accept refunds, but indeed takes exception to requests for one.)

Heh, i did use except vs accept didn't i? I will revise my auction post and correct it. As for the cpu type it is a Telechips TCC8902. If it were a WonderMedia product i would have had linux running on it already, or made a custom android rom, since the WonderMedia products are so easy to hack on. I just couldn't find any info on this thing. The best i could do was root it, remove the bloat, and add a better launcher and some decent apps. It's not a bad unit, but it isn't great by any means. It's better after my slight modifications than stock however. I figured i'd be brutally honest with this auction. Maybe somebody has one that actually likes theirs and wants a spare. Who knows. For $25 you really can't go wrong. Also for the angry people who like to smash stuff, a $25 netbook is cheaper to take your frustrations out on vs a $400 laptop.

Cheers

An honest seller, thank god. This is the same tone I'll use when trying to get my daughter into college. "She's not so bad" will be my premise. Admissions will be overwhelmed by my candor and pleasantly surprised once they let her in. "I wasn't *that* bad" will be her graduating speech, given to nodding thousands.

Good with the sale, you honest person, you,
Jake

It's because they know that I'm a lonely old man living near poverty, without a career and without a purpose...sustaining my meager days until the end comes....in other words, they did it out of pity...
