Is it worth getting an Android tablet at the moment? with Android 3.0 Honeycomb released for tablets it surely would be worth holding out until you know whether your device is capable of running the optimised for tablets OS.

Pass, at 7" i'd think of this more like a big phone without the phone.
My san francisco has a similar resolution on a smaller screen and it works well with 2.1 /2.2

I'm sure honeycomb will have a lot of improvements but for £103.20 this is obviously the budget end of the market and i wouldn't expect it to get an official update. Unofficial, maybe.

1080p LMAO

can anyone confirm if this has GPS built in....???

I assume it is talking about 1080p output to a LCD TV

I'm holding back, waiting for the LG one to come out, as they reckon it could be coming in at a good price (£250 mark as some websites quote), has Android 3.0 and a rumoured 3D display. Also will look at the others, but all dependent on the pricing..

rotten screen - best to do without till better models out later this year

That is obviously the output available on the HDMI socket. Why is it that there is always one comment from someone who doesn't get that?

Yuck -> Resistive touch screen

7" is a good size for a tablet any bigger then may as well get a laptop. For me a tablet has to be light and thin.

Seriously doubt this would handle outputting 1080p video anyway, can almost promise that

This won't get Honeycomb 3.0 (the ARM11 processor isnt anywhere near good enough) and this probably wont even get Andorid 2.2

That doesnt mean these Chinese tablets are rubbish, for someone looking for someone on a very tight budget and looking for an e-reader/web browser ect and want a bigger screen than a smartphone then this is a good option, just be aware that they will never be as good as the iPad since the screens are usually less responsive, as is the processor.

The best low cost tablet I am aware of is the Nationite MIDnite tablet:mp4nation.net/cat…_66

Here at MP4 nation but you may get it cheaper elsewhere, it has quite a competent A8 processor at 700Mhz so runs quite smoothly, Android 2.2, a very responsive screen, replaceable battery, however last time I checked the video playback wasnt ideal (couldnt cope with 720p although that was last year when I looked), well worth the extra premium over the ARM11 tablets


not to bad but as others have said id rather stick with a phone... my HD2 is only 2.8" smaller and does a stellar job :D.

However if you want something to mess around on or take some notes then i cant see it being bad. As for people saying about the resistive touch screen... you do know resistive touchscreen is still pretty damn good especially for note taking. If you want it for say games or videos then yeah capacitive wins as the screen looks better :P, but other than that they both have pros and cons.

Actually these can, but only becasue they have a dedicated Graphics chip to help the slow processor

As much as I think the iPad sucks, you're way wrong about this one.

The resistive touch screen alone makes this a waste of money.
Edited by: "rsg" 26th Jan 2011

For all the complaints about the resistive screen and Android 2.1, it has to be said that this is just a couple of quid more expensive than the Kindle, with its monochrome screen and limited functionality. Instead of looking at it as an inferior iPad, look at it as a brilliant Kindle at almost the same money.

Sigh..... for you perhaps.
I've got something very similar. Rather than get a kindle device I got this so I've got the kindle app to download and read books as I want. I can play Angry Birds on my 42" tv, I can watch 1080p video. I can get my emails, surf the web. So I have to use my fingernail or the stylus provided. big deal. I can load virually any of the Marketplace apps blah blah blah...... the list goes on. for a hundred quid I think that's pretty bloody good.

Err... slight issue that the Kindle has an e-ink display which this doesn't. 4 hours battery life?? Great reading a book on that on a long haul flight. Kindle lasts WEEKS. Oh and good luck reading a book on that in the sunlight. Chalk and cheese.

Just returned 2 of these to ebuyer, if you are used to touch screens on your mobile phone then do not expect this to be as responsive.
Although this has Android 2.1 you do not get access to the full android marketplace, you cant download mainstream apps, something to do with licencing and this is not approved for the full google marketplace.

Sure but I don't do long haul flights so no problem. Oh and it's not that bad in sunlight actually.

Funny that these are called Scrolls as it is very difficult to scroll down the page with these,
on their not very responsive screens.BTW These are eighty quid odd on ebay.

Sounds like you've never used a Kindle.

Video review here: youtube.com/wat…R9M

I am seriously thinking of getting one.....Seems fair price for the features it has.

I'm going to hold out and save my pennies for an iPad all these wannabe tablets are all well and good but just not as good. Dont get me wrong, I hate Apple with a vengeance, especially Steve Jobs but there just isnt anything else around which is as good. Yes it is cheaper blah blah but lets face it, its not an iPad.

Remember the advert "Its just like a VW Golf"?

Bah, wrong thread!

Lol!

Edited by: "thecresta" 26th Jan 2011

I just bought something very similar from eBay, claimed battery life was 2-3 hours, only just managed an hour and 20!

The resistive screen is infuriating to use, if you've ever used a capacitive screen on a phone then you will also find it annoying.

In the process of sending it back, will wait for a few more weeks till the £200 capacitive tabs come out and then get one of those.

Can anyone help? Or link to a site with some in-depth specs?

I notice it has two mini-USB sockets. I'm assuming that one is standard, and the other is a USB-host... so is this tablet able to read memory sticks, or external USB hard-disks?
In fact, can anyone recommend a smallish Android tablet that can read external harddisks?
Thank you in advance.

HSD X5A MID device. Is virtually the same spec as listed here, but has a mini USB for PC connectivity and full size USB for USB host. It supports USB mass storage. I have one.

I've seen the issues with the Battery. There are a couple of workarounds which help and while it's still not brilliant (telling me that it needs to be plugged in) I can get 4 hours or so out of it.

Im telling you people are way of the mark this is the only device worth waiting for/buying

Yeah the Kindle is pretty rubbish, you can only read books on it

I might get one of these just as a touch screen MP3 player to put in the wall in my kitchen, would be cool if connected to external speakers.

Anyone who's happy risking it with DealExtreme can get the same model for around £80

I had a tablet with the same chipset. The chipset has a 1080p hardware decoder built in i was playing a 13gb 1080p mkv on my tv with the hdmi cable, played perfectly on the screen too but at the lower resolution of course.
