Firstly, MobiCity have to be praised for their lightning-fast delivery - I chose the cheapest delivery option and the tablet arrived less than 24 hours after placing the order.
Unboxing the unit is slightly less impressive though, there is no branded packaging at all, the unit is shipped in a poly bag, in half a jiffy bag, inside a plain cardboard box. Loose in the box I found a standard USB-A to micro USB cable, a short USB-A socket to micro USB plug cable (not entirely sure what you'd use that for...) and a 5V/2A UK mains charging plug with a tiny DC jack. There is also a very brief instruction booklet, in English and Mandarin, which, being a man, I obviously haven't read...
The unit itself is also entirely unbranded, (which is a plus as far as I'm concerned - teenagers might assume something labelled 'KiDiGi' is aimed at very young children). Having done a bit of research, I believe it is a MaPan or a MaiPad, made by MaiXin-China, who usefully have a download section on their website if you need to upgrade software at any time. This means that it has an Allwinner A13 CPU, which probably isn't running at 1.5GHz - more likely at 1.0 or 1.2GHz for better stability. I'll confirm this at some stage and report back...
The tablet has no labelling for any of the controls or sockets, other than the SD socket - make sure you don't stuff the DC jack into the earphone socket by mistake. Unlike the unit reviewed by Engadget, this one has a black back cover to match the black screen surround. Overall build quality seems pretty good for such a cheap tablet, certainly better than I was expecting given the price.
Firing up the unit presents you with a fairly standard home screen, plus all the options which should be familiar to anyone who's used an Android smart phone. At this price, many people are still trying to sell tablets with 2.2/Froyo loaded on them, so having 4.04 is big plus. The display looked a little dim, it's set to around 50% brightness out of the box, but that can adjusted in the settings. The display clearly isn't going to rival Apple's retina display, but it is good enough for its target market - web browsing, games and as a media player. Having set up WiFi and registered a Gmail account, I checked email, and logged onto the pre-installed Google Play app store. Once I'd downloaded the YouTube app, I streamed the 'Skyfall' trailer - even in high quality the speed was good (I was worried it would be permanently buffering), the picture fine, and sound quality excellent through headphones. The inbuilt speaker is a bit weedy, emergency use only I guess. I then downloaded Angry Birds spin-off 'Bad Piggies' which installed and played without a hitch. I checked out the front facing camera, and it's while it's just about ok for Skype, at 0.3Mp you wouldn't want to use it for much more than that.
That's as far as I've got so far, and overall, I'm impressed, and seriously considering buying at least one more. I considered docking a star for the low rent packaging, but then it is less than £60!
Let me know if there's anything in particular you need to know, and I'll do my best to answer.
