Further information is available on X10 Airpad page. You won’t be able to buy it right now as it has apparently been sold out, but another batch is coming soon as stated on X10 Airpad website:
The demand for the new X10 AirPad tablet was so great that the first shipment sold out in just hours. With a high-end tablet selling for under $200 bucks, I guess it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. But don’t worry! We’re taking orders for the second shipment, which should be in any day. Don’t wait, because we’re expecting a ton of orders. Order now and ensure that you get yours!
