Well the product description here is clearly wrong since its an 8 inch screen and a capacitive touchscreen.
Its a good device. good clear screen for reading, nice and responsive to the touch. It does lack some features that you really would expect - including a power on password/lock. I had to download app-locker from the app store to give some protection. Even thats not ideal.The app store provided isnt as comprehensive as the full google markets store either.
I'm sure you can do all sots of things with custom firmwares, rooting, etc. But as a device this does what I wanted.
As a PDF book reader, an avi movie player, an internet tablet its great. These units have been on sale much cheaper at PC World and Dixons, so I'd recommend looking around.
