Another 7″ Tablet

Posted by Thomas Mon, 02 Apr 2012 21:19:02 +0000

I ordered another 7″ tablet over the weekend. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s shipped direct from China. I had been thinking about getting a Spark/Vivaldi tablet. But then I realized that I didn’t really want to deal with less than polished software, and that really since this was just going to be something to tinker with, something running Android would work perfectly. So I got one of these. It has the same processor as the Spark/Vivaldi. It doesn’t have the full 1G of ram or as high of resolution that some of the other tablets do, but supposedly it has built-in bluetooth (only time will tell if it does or not). I figure trading built-in bluetooth for a cheaper tablet with a bit less RAM/resolution is worth it. Another prime criteria was being able to get it on my network. In theory it ships w/ Android 4.0, so it shouldn’t be a problem (again crossing my fingers that the description is accurate).

    Looks pretty similar to this one:

    I have to say though, that 800×480 is a little low resolution for a 7″ tablet. I have the Dell Streak 7 and the screen leaves a lot to be desired. I just got a Blackberry Playbook (for free through their developer promotion) and the screen is leaps and bounds better. Now just to get real apps on there…

    Yeah, maybe I should have researched it more. Hopefully it’ll work for my purposes. Else I can chalk it up to another lesson in why not to buy $100 tablets… :)

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a nice device. It is just limited for things like reading because of the resolution.
