Great value for the money
on August 30, 2012
- 9.7 inch screen, supports 720p video(*)
- upgraded to 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich; this upgrade is a must do and it will really set the tablet apart from its younger brother. ICS is much faster and smoother in its interface. Upgrading to ICS means a clean version of ICS, without any bloatware, which is very good and usually unheard of.
- browser scrolls smoothly and with ICS, its even better (Browser replaced with Chrome Browser); for small links, the browser will pop up a small window zooming in on the links, so you can more precisely tab on them.
-keyboard is fast and responsive although I haven't yet figured out how to disable the haptic feedback
-(*): the 1Ghz dual-core processor is obviously put at its limits when playing high-definition video. If you don't leave the tablet alone to do its thing, you start seeing signs of fatigue and slow-down during playback. One instance when I played 720p video from youtube, it took a while for the video to run at least 20ish frames per second, the beginning being played at around 10. Maybe it was loading but still. Mind you the tablet wasn't yet upgraded when i tried.
Overall, you get an android tablet that runs fairly smooth for most tasks. It won't run like the latest 7-inch tablet from Google but its also bigger in screen size. You can watch movies, play music, do work on it, read books and even set up a Virtual Private Network.
Great buy overall, would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind the Le Pan label on the back ;)
