I plan to buy a tablet PC of affordable price. After researching what I could find there are various Android OS Internet Tablets out there in the prices of more than $150, however, most of them with terrible Reviews of hardware issues. And when I saw the 7″ Notebook WiFi Apad Google Android 1.6 MID Tablet PC , I doubt the quality of the products for the amazing low price of $89.99 only, and finally I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the this unit.
I purchased this unit and received my package about a month later (it is really a little long) and I immediately plugged it in to charge the battery (it notified of full charge after 1-1/2 hours). I decided to play with the unit a little, since I could not resist. I will say I was impressed with the quality of the unit; it seems very sturdy and well built. It powered up fine and I found it very easy to navigate thru the functions (both on screen and the case side buttons). Of course, I recommend that you visit pickegg.com and see the detailed product description.
Especially the touch screen, it functions excellent in my opinion. None of the quirks other mention about this unit or other units being sold. And forget about HAVING to use your fingernail or the stylus to select or scroll. It works great with my finger tip, better than even the stylus. I admit, the finger swipe method to scroll thru lists or menus takes a bit of practice, but that may be only me, because I have never used a touch screen device of this type before, better than expected. Anyway, enough about that, it just works fine.
Setting up a wireless connection was simple and effortless (using my own home wireless connection). Surfing the Internet was easy too, once you get used to seeing “mobile device formatted” versions of web pages. All my favorite web pages loaded quickly (I mean fast) and problem free. (For those interested, even Facebook loads and works fine – I tried it). The Ap for Youtube works great as well. Youtube videos load as fast as my desktop PC and of all the 10 or more that I tried, they played without any delay, chopping or buffering. Way better than I expected.
Using the Email AP, I set up a POP3 account very quickly and sent and received messages effortlessly (all verified). File transfers to and from my PC went smooth, using the included USB cable.
The included Ebook reader works perfectly too. And, the built in accelerometer works nice. The screen will automatically change from portrait and landscape mode. Battery life is stated to be 7 hours (we will see), with its rechargeable 4000mA battery (a larger capacity than most other brand tablets).
That is my experience with this unit. I purchased it for the small, light form factor (no more clunky laptop), the wireless Internet, Email function, Reader and MP3 player, things I use often on the move (outside on lunch break at work, in bed at night or anywhere in the house or workplace, etc), but hate being tied to a power cord or a heavy laptop. So far, it has shown to serve this purpose with flying colors.
I realize I have not covered everything pertaining to this unit, but I wanted to post a good and a truly honest review for prospective buyers. I hope it will be of help to someone.
I love it and look forward to being productive with it.
