Gary, the link I gave is actually the 10A ... Best Buy has several "store
brands" (UnBranded for one) and this unit looks like the stores dumped it to
resellers.  And I was hoping to find a decent 10" tablet.... humbug!!

What about the MS10SA model? have you heard anything bad about those?

Thanks Al,  I appreciate the information. I'm going to go check the numbers
and see what and out.

Gary, be careful with that one.  If it's the UB15MS10 - that's a Best Buy
unit which has had a lot of problems - mostly with the screen.  .... Sorry,
I had to go looking since I'm in the market for a decent inexpensive tablet.

Well that all sounds very reassuring to me. especially since I just found a
10.1 inch tablet that runs Windows for only $60 on eBay. I guess you know by
now what my next purchase is going to be! Lol thanks all for your input.
have a great day!

Paulo, are you saying that it is not likely that software will never be
developed for Android? That would be quite disappointing if so. I wonder are
there any tablets that run Windows! would it work that way?

Not really. You already have drivers for SDR, USB to RS232 adapters, and
so on.
It's just a matter of the type of radio (driver on cable or on radio)
and the driver used. If it recognizes it as an COM port, it should work.
The software is the tricky part.
