It's a tablet, based off of Android.

White box computers are completely different from tablets. With computers, you can throw together parts as cheaply as possible, throw on a copy of windows, and sell it to a consumer, and they're part of that ecosystem. With Android, it doesn't work that way.

There are two market share areas I find interesting:

-What ecosystem are people using (iOS, Google experience Android, Amazon Kindle, Windows (lol))?

-And within official Android, what is the market share of the manufacturers?

Beyond that, it's all white noise.
Well you are thinking that the bet was Android vs iOs.. it wasn't. It was ANYTHING and EVERYTHING (7" and above) vs iPad. I was actually counting on true Win 8 Pro tablets to hit the market 6 months earlier and make inroads with the enterprise. Obviously that didn't happen, stupid Microsoft.

Also, the White Box tablets have viable ecosystems and are almost all Android 4.0+. They aren't cutting edge but they certainly aren't all garbage either.
