Yes the common name for it seems to be "iRobot"

You might just want to stick with your current 2.1, unless your having issues with it.

You can try here:

http://hiapad.com/?p=801&lang=all

or

http://www.apadtablet.info/downloads-for-zenithink-tablet-pc

There is an update section there, however I am not sure you will be able to upgrade to android 2.2.1

Many sites are talking about custom flashing the updates which can cause serious issues,
and with the large mix of devices out there this can be dangerous.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
