Trust me when I tell you that I searched and searched for "just the right" tablet to buy. I was only wanting to spend around 300 on one...so it was VERY hard to find a good table that had everything I wanted on it and could do the things I wanted. I researched LOTS of different tablets before deciding to buy this one. With this just coming out on the market this month 01-2012, it was hard to get my hands on one. These are such a good tablet that most stores sold out right away..as a matter of fact, just a few hours after I bought mine from here at Walmart.com, they were out of stock..glad to see they have them back in stock now. As of today, if you go to most other websites, they're at least a 2 week wait on one.
Ok...on to the Tablet. No user manual comes in the box...just a quick start guide...no biggie, just head on over to Le Pan website and download it from there for free. As per instructions, as soon as you get this tablet, you NEED to charge it...yes, I know, it does come with 60% charge, but if you want to keep you battery up for a long time...CHARGE THIS UNIT BEFORE USING for the first time!! After the first charge, you can then use it while it's charging..but for the first time, let it charge COMPLETELY before use.
This is a Genuine Android Tablet. It has Honeycomb OS on it, up-gradable to ICS here in the next little while. It has the Android Market preinstalled on it. It also has Amazons Kindle preinstalled along with Google Maps, a GPS...which is really cool, I just spoke the name of the next town into it, and instantly (and I do mean instant) it started up the directions. I haven't played around with this feature much, but I'm almost sure that once I go out of my WiFi range it won't work...unless there is a way to download the map/directions to the actual tablet.
The Duel processor in this lil guy ROCKS! Web pages load instant with this. There's no lag time inbetween web pages..pics and text load right up. I've tried Youtube on it (some reviewers on other sites were having trouble with Youtube videos...not that they wouldn't load/play, but because the videos would stop to buffer) I have only tried a few videos myself and only 1 stopped to buffer...no problem though...hit pause for just a bit then resume play...doesn't happen again.
It does only come with 8GB to it...but it has where you can slide up to 32 GB right into it and your done..no biggie there.
I still can't believe how responsive this tablet is. The touch screen is right on. Take Walmart for example..the little search box, just clicked on it and it hit it right on, the first try. Zooming in and out on web pages is a snap, just use your two fingers to move in and out. Typing is also great, no lag there.
The color on this is Super...Crisp and clear. Other reviewers on other sites were complaining about all the finger prints that are left on it...HELLO! It's a TOUCH SCREEN..of course you're going to get your prints all over it. It takes what, all of 30 seconds to wipe it clean..with the cleaning cloth that came with it, I might add. LOL
I really do't care much for the volume control, where it's placed...hard to find it when you are watching something. Not a big draw back, but did want to mention that.
I really have NO complaints what so ever with this Tablet... especially with it's price tag. I really can't see the point in spending ANY more money on any other Tablet...because the only extra thing you will be getting is another Name. As of right now, I'm the first reviewer on this tablet here on Walmarts site... Do a search on this tablet and look what other website reviewers are saying. Don't be afraid of buying this just because it's made by a company that's not well known. You won't regret it!!
