Just as another data point, Vivitar manufactured the $150 xo-tablet, and
also is offering a $100 Camelio tablet which has a similar footprint.  It
has an external micro SD card, like the xo-tablet, but not the hdmi video

I purchased one, and contacted the manufacterer, to see if they would
document unlocking the $100 Camelio.  They refused.
