Graphics horsepower on that Atom chip is pretty weak, 1280x800 is probably as much as it can handle.

Mostly because these aren't ARM tablets.

Despite the shortcomings I think these tablets are pretty interesting if they're not fully locked down. The 32bit processor, Linux compatibility and low cost opens up a world of options.
