Low cost tablet devices are easy on the wallet, but they always lack some killer feature here and there. Some folks aren’t going to be satisfied with that, and are perfectly happy to take the situation into their own hands, and one user did just that, hacking the Eken M001 Android-powered MID into something more powerful than it originally was. Improvements include bumping the battery from a 1600mAh capacity to a whooping 5200mAh, netting him about 7-12 hours of usage. A USB hub and flash drive were also added, including a few additional connectors to allow for external devices. Finally, it also sports something that Apple’s iPad currently lacks – a front-facing camera. Not too shabby for a budget MID, isn’t it? Check out a video of it after the jump.
