This is a GSM Tablet device, supports call and text functionality (voice communication, SMS and MMS).
Technical Review: Similar to iPad or iPad2, Slim and Portable Tablet, and lots of things you can do with 10.1 inch screen.
– With 16 or 32 GB internal memory (ROM), 1GB RAM, plus 1 Ghz Dual Core processor, for extensive usage of applications and multitasking needs.
– With the Latest Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, does makes everything, smooth and looks new for transition and compatibility platform.
– 10.1 inches PLS TFT capacitive touchscreen, large display for watching videos, music, web surfing and sort of multimedia functionalities.
– up to 32 GB microSD expandable memory slot. Store all sorts of files or multimedia files you want. SIM slot for the Mobile(GSM) network.
– 3.15 Megapixel camera and VGA Camera at the front, perfect taking ordinary photos and videos shots. Good for video phone calls, tried Skype and Yahoo Messenger, works smoothly with HD video recording and playback. The only thing I am wondering is that there is no LED flash and the front camera is VGA, it would be great it has a LED flash and 2 MP front camera. But still, all worth it to have, the performance you need as a tablet.
– More robust wireless technology HSPA+21Mbps and Wifi ready bonding channel, for faster and achieve higher download rates. The results may vary depending on GSM/Wifi Connection. It has Bluetooth v3.0, for wireless communication and data transfer.
– It has stereo loudspeaker (built-in speaker) and 3.5 mm jack for listening music and other multimedia stuff. Microphone for voice recording/communication of the device (call communication and audio recording). It uses 30 pin dock connector via USB 2.0 host support for data/file transfer and USB charger adapter for battery charging of the device.
– Video Quality and Web Surfing is superb, richer with compatible flash support and video codecs. 🙂 Tried playing all sorts of HD videos and it all runs smoothly without any sluggish or lags.
– Impressive Battery Life at endurance test, it takes more hours on playing music and videos, All depends on the usages, so results maybe vary.
– No Stereo Radio RDS on this Tablet device (that’s makes me sad T_T)
