This evening Chris's new Android tablet (the previous one falling prey to a cracked screen, rendering the touch ability on 1/2 half useless) arrived. 

We hung out on the couch together and set to rooting and loading the Android Marketplace on it. Thanks to Android forums on the internet, there are plenty of people who have gone before so there were a lot of resources. All in all it took about an hour, which was mostly just waiting on the Android SDK to download updates. 

But now the little tablet running 2.1 (Eclair) has the marketplace and hums along at a decent speed. Much faster than the previous tablet Chris had. They're both resistive screens, but since capacitive screens are a good $150-$200 more for similar specs, it hardly seems worth the price. It's not THAT much different for most things.
