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).

This is a preliminary review as I have had this tablet only for a few hours. Unfortunately, Walmart may not let me add/subtract from this review in 2-3 weeks in future. But I will try and do the justice to this tablet it deserves. (1) Walmart has gotten so much better in terms of shipping site to store. I ordered this item on 5-1-2013 and picked it up on 5-3-2013. Great. In the past, WM was very slow. (2)This tablet has performed just as it was advertised flawlessly. It is very fast for an inexpensive tablet and the touch response is very good. (3) The tablet is "much bigger" than a 7" tablet but much smaller than a 10.1" tablet. Many people like this size. However do not expect to hold it in one hand for too long as it is a little heavier and bigger than a 7" one, so it can become uncomfortable quickly. (4) I am looking for a case for it. The regular 7" or 10.1 " won't do. Other accessories are pretty standard, like micro SDHC, 3.5mm sterio earbuds, stylus, etc. It has a USB port for connecting to your laptop or other media or storage. It comes with the cable. Great. (5) It has HDMI port, though I haven't tried it yet. Great feature. (6) No Google play store, but Slideme is adequate. Besides there is nothing any app-wise, at this time I want that is not already available to me otherwise. For a $70 tablet 8"in size this may be a great buy.

For the money it is a good value. It is not a Google Play enabled device but you can download apps easily from SlideMe which is installed on the tablet. The other drawback is that although it has a built in microphone the 3.5mm audio jack does not provide for the connection of an external microphone. So, this does not allow for using the Square Register app with a credit card swipe reader that utilizes that jack's microphone connection. Without that connection the Square Register app is not usable and you cannot have the convenience of using a headphone while making telephone calls. Only having a forward facing camera is fine if you are only going to use the tablet for video chat but it makes it extremely cumbersome for taking photos of anything else. If your photographic interest is taking photos of something other than your own face then I recommend looking for a tablet with a rear mounted camera. If you are not familiar with Android type devices you may find that the accompanying manual and website support insufficient in aiding on using the features of this tablet. Features I do like are the display size and clarity of the screen and the ability to add additional flash memory storage. The touch response of the screen is good and the battery appears to allow for extended periods of operation without the need to charge it. The tablet has other features which I have not tried as of yet such as the ability to use the HDMI output, using the tablet as a hotspot and the capability of using it in a VPN network. It also has USB capability with an inclusded adapter to provide micro to standard USB connectivity.

After about 3 days with it, using it, learning about it, I must say it is very well built and did all it said it would. The size it fine. But for me, a 60 yr old guy with arthritic hands, navigating and using the touch pad and touch keyboard proved to be an experience I chose not to continue. Here is how I can best explain, on my regular PC with a regular keyboard I could do an action in say 5-10 seconds, with the touch system it would take me 3-4 minutes, and with me often hitting the wrong key and starting over. In a nut shell, I did not like the touch system, if it had a keyboard I would have done fine. I took it back and am going to buy a Net Book or a 14 inch laptop with built in keyboard. If you are young and have nimble fingers, you'll like it, if you are like me, I'd say spend more and get something small with a keyboard.Thanks.

I strongly recommend this tablet PC to anyone who is interested in this new technology and don't wanna pay tons just for the brand name. Since I got it, I am using 24/7, no problems, I upload stuff from SlideMe, as good, if not better than Google apps. and for the price, it's just a must. I probably will order one more this year for a backup :)

Overall good product, meets spec, design and features meet price platform. Installed apps are slim, the Slideme app is not as good as Google Play Store but easy to use. Nice large, bright screen with good touch screen response. WiFi connected quick and easy, other features are HDMI to connect to a TV or Monitor, USB interface, so far good battery life. Cons are: 1. the camera feature will not scan bar codes, only faces user, low res pics and video. 2. Cannot use Netflix to stream video 3. cannot use Audible for audio books 4. a little heavy for hand holding, need to get stand or use pillow to prop it 5. No Bluetooth interface

Power & Wifi issues

Right off the bat, it didn't seem to hold it's charge very well. After the third day, it wouldn't power on. If you plug it in to power for a little bit, then power it on, it will. It showed battery was at 5% after over 8 hours charge. Also, it would not show or connect to an Open wireless system at a hotel we were staying at while my cellphone and other tablet would be able to. It did connect to our wireless router at home just fine. It doens't use Google Play to download apps so that was confusing at first. Ordered a replacement - we'll see what happens. For now, assuming these defects are isolated to this unit, it is as good a tablet as any other.

I love my new PC tablet. Lots of apps to download. Great price! I don't really care for the front facing camera. Other than that it's awesome!!! I would recommend this to anyone who is on a budget or wants a smaller version of an Ipad. Great product!!

TABLET FOR BOOKS

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I wanted a simple tablet to download digital books from the library. This suits me. I don't do email or much internet with it. It is pretty much for reading books. Works great with OverDrive media from the library. Otherwise, a bit of a challenge to learn programs that will accept other forms of digital print. I love public domain, free books, so still learning what to download. I really enjoy newspapers on my phone and was hoping to have the same on the tablet, but it's a bit too slow loading. I'm satisfied with the books. There are other fun apps to play with, but seems a little pointless with a system that seems limited. I understood ahead of time what limitations might be, so I am very satisfied.
