    BungBungame is the company, Photon 100 is the product. Do you call your iPad or iPhone "Apple"?

    No but I call my Dell a Dell :roll:

    With a name like BungBungame, nobody will call it the Photon 100.

    Yes, but since it's something nobody has ever heard of, this is bound to come up:

    - "Who makes this thing?"

    - "Bungbungame..."

    - ":wtf:"

    I dont disagree... I hope they have commercials:

    And a slogan something catchy, like "No file is too big for your bungbungame" or "BungBungame, the best way to stay in touch with friends and family"

    Looks like a pretty decently spec'd tablet. Not having much experience with tablets tho so I could be way off.

    With a brand name like that, it is hard to forget.

    When I first read the title I read Bung bun game.

    It's weird, tablets seem like such a good place to dispense with the windows on x86 (read, viruses) microarchitecture, that I'm not sure I understand why they're going that way. The APU I can understand, and I guess maybe they don't want to write they're own linux for release, but it just seems like a disaster waiting to happen. Even running antivirus day to day on that thing is going to (possibly) make it so sluggish that it's useless.

    Looks nice actually, if you can put Windows or Linux or something on it. I want more PC tablets!

    Would have looked even more better if a cute Asian girl is holding that Tablet instead of that dude.

    Normally I'd stop at $20,000, but I'm glad I continued.

    Hmmm similar price to an Ipad and its windows will probably sell reasonably well to people who would use CAD and what not that would be nice to wip out and show drawings on.
