Review of the WireLession W1060 MID, A.K.A. the WitsTech A81

If we could ask Santa for one present this year it would be for more well-written and focused reviews of tablet products. That must be why it’s looking a lot like Christmas to us after seeing Coldsun’s review of the WireLession W1060 MID on the MobileRead forums. Coldsun provides a lengthy and detailed review of [...]
