What's a Tablet PC?

Tablet PCs are compact, ultra-portable entertainment devices that let you read email, surf the internet, read eBooks, view photos, play games, listen to music and watch video files. Most tablets are based on a smaller operating system, which allows you to purchase and download additional applications from supported stores. Tablet PCs do not have a CD/DVD drive and will not run Microsoft Windows or its applications. Tablet PCs function as a secondary device for casual entertainment purposes, and are not meant to replace a computer. They are ideal for use around the home and on the go with WiFi or 3-4g mobile broadband connections (pay as you go, contract may be required for service).

I purchased this for the average mobile needs, read books, surf the web, play games, its smaller than a laptop and bigger than a phone. Easily fits in my purse and use it for shopping lists. Camera works great, its the first thing my teenage daughter tested so she can video chat on road trips in the car. Does what I expected but I forgot to check for Bluetooth and Flash player compatibility. I'm a little stuck waiting for the updated Adobe Flash so we can play Facebook App games. Wifi works great where Bluetooth would be needed for file transfers. There were more Apps available on Samsung Galaxy SIII than this device at the time of purchase (April 2013). I still have to use my Galaxy phone for a few things I bought the tablet for, so its more of a reader until more apps are compatible with 4.1

I purchased this tablet for my son and he loves it! The battery life is good;much better the filemate I had purchased for him earlier to replace the funtab pro kids tablet. That tablet (ematic funtab pro) was a piece of junk! The filemate was ok. The battery life wasn't good and ran hot after long use of the tablet. This tablet is perfect for my son! He can download all the games he wants, google, watch netflix and more. I love it, He loves it, and my husband loves it because now our son has his own tablet and no longer gets his dads iPad. Great purchase! Im glad Idecided to buy even without any reviews to read.

I love the tablet except for the speaker. It's not very loud and can be difficult to hear movies or music. Otherwise it's perfect for games, reading books, and surfing the web.

Pros: Fast processor High res screen Large storage Latest Android O/S Cons No Bluetooth Viewing angles poor No Direct Wifi file transfer support No rear camera If you are a basic user, viewing websites, downloading apps and social networking. This is a great little tablet. Even a front camera for live video chat. This can do all those things well. But lets put it in prospective. If your needing bluetooth pairing, for $20 more you can get the Nook HD, and to boot, you get a screen with better viewing angles. If you want bluetooth, Direct Wifi & front and rear cameras, for $30 more, you can get the HP Slate. HP Slate's screen is comparable to the Asus. For me, it didn't cut it. I knew going into it, there was no bluetooth. When I couldn't use direct wifi using SuperBeam Scanner or other direct transfer software, it became less desirable. It could receive but it couldn't send. A simple firmware oversight in the tablet. It is odd that Asus is in the budget line. They are known for very complete and solid devices, thats probably why Google picked them to build the Nexus 7. Most home users on a budget probably won't attempt direct transfer or need bluetooth. There are other Apps out there that make file transfers easy like Drop Box, Cheeta sync & Air Droid. For a budget device Asus considered the basic features people want, and they did a good job.
