    With specs close to the Ipad, the LePan TC970 is an excellent buy for half the price. And now that Walmart has a price rollback, I made the decision to compliment my smartphone with a tablet. The biggest difference between these two gadgets is the screen size and resolution, everything looks bigger and more visible on the tablet. But that comes at a price of portability, it is meant to be used indoors and sunlight will make the screen totally unviewable. But other than some minor complaints, this table is worth every penny. Here's a list or pros and cons that I've managed to collect in the short period of usage, I've spent most of it downloading apps and enjoying the new features and capabilities of my new toy. One reason I bought this is to install the Skype software which provides for voice and video conversations throughout the world. So with that said, let's go on with the list: Pros, The Good: Price - Walmart's price beats everyone. Quality - Much, much better than the cheap competition. Size - Just right and very slick, the dust cloth comes in handy. Ipad Screen - The 9.7 screen and 1024x768 res is a standard for tablets. Fast Wifi - Wireless connection and speed are both easy and fast. Working GPS - No antenna cables here, the built in chip works like the phones. Working Bluetooth - Great for pairing headphones and file transfers. 512mb memory - Not the stingy 256mb found on other models. 2g internal memory - More apps to load, no more out of memory messages. 32g SD card max - You want more storage, just buy a 32g micro sdhc and you're set. Accelerometer Ambient light sensor Front facing camera and microphone for video call/chat. Settings behind status bar dropdown, very convenient. 2g internal storage expands non-SD apps capacity. A big plus for apps that cannot move to SD. Ambient light sensor controls screen brightness. Saves the battery. Screen is very sensitive to the touch, a fly could probably land on it and cause unpredictable results. Most apps designed for the Ipad will probably feel at home on the LePan because of the same screen and resolution. Cons, The Bad: No manual, learn by trial and error. I haven't checked the www.lepantab.com website yet. Very narrow handles cause fingers to touch sensitive screen. Accidental hit of back button very annoying. Wish those handles would extend out for better grip. Comand button lights not controlled by ambient light sensor, hard to see in the dark. SDHC chip slot location very awkward, huge closure tab gets in the way. Bad design. Hardware buttons are not labeled, must grope to locate. Back button should not be too sensitive to the touch, it will exit the app in progress. Extremely annoying. Still lack compatibility with some tablet apps due to hardware and software differences. Mostly video games that demand faster graphics chips like the Nvidia Tegra. Also the later version of the Android OS provides more features found in more expensive tablets.

    Excellent tablet!! Brilliant 9.7" screen that displays bright and sharp graphics. Multitouch capacitive touch screen works like a charm. Wi-fi connects quick and easy altho range is slightly weak. Browses fast. Official android market is a big plus - plenty of apps and everything I've installed works fine. Amazon appstore works as well. About 1.5 gigs of onboard storage. I've added a 32gb microsdhc card so tons of room. Youtube and Adobe flash already installed and work well, but flash player seems to work better with some browsers than others. Movies play and look beautiful. Sound with earphones is great . Speakers just ok. Camera is just adequate. Skype works fine for calls but I haven't got video calling version yet. Seriously, this thing is as good as my daughter's IPad. I bought my first one on Amazon for 270 bucks and my second one from Walmart at 218 buck and now at 198 buc this tablet is a fantastic buy. Read the reviews at Amazon and Newegg.

    After researching reviews and educating myself on tablets, I asked my husband to get one for my birthday. My sister and I sat side by side and compared her iPad to my Le Pan and we both thought it was a close call. For a little less than $200. this is a steal. It's quick, sharp and sensitive. WiFi picks up great, streaming video flawless, web surfing fast, lots of apps to choose from in the Android Store, very sharp/bright screen. Down side: it freezes up once in awhile; reset brings is it back though and does not happen often. I wish it had a front facing camera. But for the price, I will not complain!

    Owned this tablet for a few days and very happy with battery life, speed, and preloaded apps. Unit was up and running within 5 minutes of turning it on. Unit found my network and was off and running. Flash works very well with very limited choppyness to video ie, netflix streaming. Have surfed the web serveral times now and time between screens is fairly short.

    I purchased the Le Pan TC 970 for my husband as an early Christmas present in October from Amazon. It was not available at WalMart at the time. My husband has been using it instead of his laptop ever since. We have been able to connect our yahoo and gmail email accounts to it. Netflix is compatible, he watches it nightly. Facebook works fine on here. Angry Birds is awesome on the big screen! We have the Android and Amazon App store on it, Kindle App, Nook app, etc. My husband used the reader apps a lot. It is easier than holding a book for him when using the case stand. I got a Targus case for the Ipad 1 and have access to all of the plugs, buttons, etc. It holds it secure and folds into a three position stand. I cut down an ipad screen protector for it. I have the HP ePrint app on it and can print to my Deskjet 3050A which is ePrint enabled. There are no USB or HDMI ports on it. It accepts up to a 32gb SDHC Micro card. I currently have a 16gb in in, and have 14gb available. Between the Android and Amazon app market, you can get lots of apps. I have an Iphone, and there are currently apps that I use on the phone that are not available, but Apple's market is larger. I have not tried the Skype, so cannot comment on it. There is a system tutorial, in the settings on the tablet, but nothing was in the package to tell you that. You find it after the fact. But the set-up was intuitive enough that we figured out the basics first. Looking at my battery usage at this moment, the tablet has been unplugged for 7+ hours, the battery is at 80%. My husband has not been using it much though, it has been in sleep mode when not in use. of the 20% used, 40% was wifi usage, 31% tablet idle, 16% display, 5% Android OS, 5% Android system, 2% Browser. Cons have been few. There are four main buttons on the screen, which do most of your functions needed. They are not backlit though, so you cant see them in the dark. The screen had frozen up on us several times and had to be reset with a paper clip, but seems to be doing much better since the update to 2.2. We have had some problems with losing wifi, but it seems to happen mostly in our bedroom. You just pull down the top of the screen, click the wifi off, and click it back on and go back to where you were. My husband has big fingers and sometimes has trouble with the keyboard. I am currently checking with the company to see if you can hook a bluetooth keyboard to it. Haven't received an answer to it and I have a Stylus on order to see if that helps. For the money, I don't think you can get better! The video is stunning, capacitive screen is sensitive. It has been a joy to use. My husband is disabled, and this works so much better for him than a laptop. It is easier for him to carry around. No, it is not an ipad, but I didn't want one. No thought of paying that much, did not want 3g access, no need for a forward facing camera. This tablet is very sturdy feeling, not flimsy. I am hoping, with the case and screen protector, that we will be able to use it a long time. Hope you enjoy yours as much as we enjoy ours!

    • A. It does not come with a Office type app. The system that is preloaded is basic, but allows for easy selection of what is desired by the user. There are several apps available that allow you to open and edit Office type documents, Word, Excel and Powerpoint. The key is Edit. The tablet is not a platform to create documents, there is not enough function in it. I don't think you can create, only edit. Most, if not all, cost; up to $20. The best I've seen noted in the research I've done and the one I shall install is OfficePro. It does give the most Office like use. It is one of the few that offers formating, but none that I've found offer spell check. But again, it is not Office. If you chose any type app verify it will run on the installed Operating System. Some work on Honeycomb only.
