Ricardo, Agualva Often on the move

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
It's light, good looking and even appears to be solid build
Bad points:
Every thing since you turn on the device, let's start for a crash on start up, plus more few crashes, the keyboard entry, never saw anything so bad clic on P or . and the keyboard disapears, ohh yes heat expect heat to lower the volume, crashing it and so on. Performance, well even running some basic solitaire it breaks. Last think always 2 times before installing firmware, it can ruin the tablet and make you go to warranty.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good size / quality screen. Fast processor. ICS android operating system which makes it fast. Lots of features available such as hdmi output, external sd expansion slot available. Best value for money in the matket.
Bad points:
Build quality could be better. Touch screen has been extremely sensitive at the beginning making it unusable. However, upgrading to ICS its now properly working.
