Help Needed what is the name of this PC Tablet?

Hi All
I got a New Android PC Tablet from: eBay
7Inch 7" Capacitive Android 4.0 A13 1.5G WIFI PAD Tablet PC Netbook Notebook 8GB
The Tablet is From Hong Kong
The seller says that it is a MID Tablet, I know that I am Dyslexic, but I know it does not say that on the box!
Attached is a Photo of the Box!
Can any one tell me what it is called?
So that I can go hunting for the Manual in Microsoft Word or PDF

It's an android device, so if you go to Settings -> About Tablet(?) (I'm using my phone as a base and its the last option in settings which says "About Phone" it should give you a Model Number there as well as a few other things you could google for to find out what it is.

MID=Mobile Internet Device a generic term.
From what you posted it is an A13 tablet, pretty generic now. Is there no manual on the device, some have it in the menu.

Are you guys seriously saying you can get half decent tablets for under £100?  Shocked You still can't even get a decent netbook for that money.

@Sprite, I don't know if it is a decent tablet or not, I was reluctant to use a google operating system, the tablet is for me to experiment with!

It's Android.. what do you expect a manual to give you?

Agree with Dvorak here, Android devices are all very very similar, including Android phones.

Do us a favour mate? Keep us updated with it and how you find it would you?
I'm very interested in technical gizmo wizardry and wouldn't mind grabbing one or two of these myself if they're any good.

From what I understand, there are factories churning out these generic devices, some will let you customize/brand them if you buy them in quantities of 1000 or more.
Searching on the Build Number it is indeed an A13 device, possibly a YeahPad A13 (since that was the only result on google for that full string)
