After having seen the specs o the device which indeed seem pretty impressive let us now take a look at the performance and hands on experience with the device. Let us start the discussion off with the Procesor and the OS that the device bears.
Processor and OS:
The company has very rightly given the deice a 1.2 GHz A8 processor which actually is the same technology that powers the Apple iPad and hence there is no compromise on that front. The OS , the Android Gingerbread -runs very smoothly on the processor and makes the experience a pretty smooth one for any user of the device. The device supports multitasking, well not completely owever there are sets of programs that can run in the background and it seems pretty seamless on the amazing processor.
Screen and Display:
The size of the screen is good and it is pretty well lit as well, the display is very good and pretty responsive however, the 5 point multi touch seems to be quite a handful but the responsiveness does bring the whole fun down.
Network and Data Capabilities:
Well if we were looking for the areas that the company made a sacrifice to accommodate such a device within the specified cost then this is the one. The device does not bear any in-built 3G device the 3G connectivity shall come only through a USB modem. However, the device does bear great WIFI capabilities and can act as a WIFI modem as well.
As far as the memory capabilities of the device is concerned, the device bears a 1 GB DDR3 RAM which indeed is one of the best in the business and can accommodate a lot of apps that can be downloaded from the Android marketplace. THe external memory is also great expandable upto 32 GB by an memory stick.
Camera and Battery:
The company seems to have saved a lot of money here as well. The cameras both of them is far below expectation and nowhere close to the world levels. However, the battery is pretty good and gives the expected back-up of 12+ hours.
So, there it is guys hope you liked the review do not forget to let us know of your opinion about the device in the comments section below.
