I'm not somebody who knows a whole lot about tablets and I'm not a huge fan of Apple. But this is what I KNOW about this tablet. I did a lot of looking around before I purchased it. I bought it for my 5 yr old daughter and 4 yr old son for Christmas. It's the SAME PRICE as the Leap Pad and cheaper than a DS and they won't out grow it, and I can use it too. I'm well aware they will drop it, it will fall out of the car, and it will get sticky with finger prints and juice. I did NOT buy this because I wanted something nice for myself. I have a droid phone. This is SLOWER than my phone. It connects to the wi-fi in my house, but I need to work out some kinks (it's kicking my lap top off the network- they have the same ip address which will definitely be an issue after christmas!) It has WI-FI- not 3 or 4g- if you're used to your smart phone. That means when you travel you will NOT be able to just randomly check your email while someone else is driving down the road. You need a micro sd card if you plan on downloading apps. It doesn't come with it. It also doesn't come with screen protectors. You'll want those too if you're using it with kids (sticky finger prints and juice, just rip off the screen protector and put another one on) I would NOT recommend this for an adult. It's slow. It's still down loading Angry Birds Seasons, actually. Yes, it does have Amazon App store which DOES have Angry Birds, Netflix, Facebook, and Zoodles (by far my favorite app for the kids) It comes with the You Tube App, and the Kindle App, which I'm still figuring out the Kindle App. I would not recommend purchasing this for some one who is not used to at least a smart phone and handing it to them without fixing it up a little bit. They would get VERY frustrated, and you just wasted a hundred bucks. If you are aware that this is not a Motorola, Apple, Samsung, or anything else- you are buying an off brand tablet, that happens to run on the ANdroid system, which happens to have google, you tube, and amazon installed on it before it was put in the box- then it's a good deal to download some apps, give it to your kids/computer illiterate parents/or someone who cannot afford to buy a lap top, computer, smart phone, or name brand tablets- then this is the tablet for you. It has the basics- which is what you are paying for. It doesn't have the "bells and whistles" It gets the job done, it has the right apps, and it's cheap. Take it out of the box when you get it, start registering who ever is getting this, and it's a great present. Good Deal if you ask me!
