For starters, this tablet PC is generally known as an APad iRobot. This YouTube video shows you pretty much what you're going to get (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMI6ZywOvyo&feature=player_embedded).
If you do decide to order this, I wouldn't recommend going for the Express Delivery option. Mine took 5 working days to arrive which doesn't really shout Express Delivery to me.
I'm going to talk about the whole experience I found when using this product. You'll have to take into account that some of the things I mention are out of the control of the product, like the Android apps or the OS itself.
The build of the device itself is a mix between feeling well made and really cheap. The case is made with sturdy aluminium and has a nice heaviness about it without feeling like you're holding a brick. The buttons, switches , lights and ports aren't superbly finished and they really do reflect the item's price. The camera is ever so slightly too big for the box and causes a bump in the front panel. Nothing significant, but it's there.
The device is certainly a lot smaller than the iPad. It's three times as big as an iPhone and roughly about the size of a Kindle.
No instructions are supplied so you're on your own. It took a few of us to figure out how to turn the thing on and I'm still not entirely sure how we did it. My advice is to charge it for a bit and then hold your finger on the buttons for a few seconds until you see the Android logo. Don't forget use the On/Off switch too.
The touch screen is actually a surprise. It's not brilliant but once you get used to the sensitivity required, navigating through the OS is pretty smooth. It is certainly not a frustrating experience, my biggest concern when I purchased the device.
There are plenty of applications already supplied out of box. The good news is that the Android Market place is there so adding more apps is a walk in the park. As the device is using the old Android 1.5 be prepared for a few apps to fail horribly on you. I couldn't get any of the comic book readers to work but the Aldiko book reader did.
There is a certain amount of glare from the screen but it's a decent enough size and I read through a few pages last night without wanting to stick forks in my eyes. I was reading PDF files rather than an eBook and I'm hoping the experience improves with a dedicated book format.
WIFI works fairly well but the range is slightly worse than my iPod touch. It's a lot, lot quicker though and browsing the internet is a much better experience with a device this size.
After the initial charge I was pretty much playing with the tablet all day. With WIFI turned on in the evening the device became a lot thirstier but hovered between yellow and green for a long time before asking for more power. Oddly, the battery meter went from yellow to green a few times too. Either the battery is a bit flaky or the device has mystical powers of recuperation.
It's easy to be critical of the device. It's a cheap, iPad rip off from China and has all the hall marks of one - right down to the dodgy European power supply and adapter. However, it is unfair to compare this product with devices that cost over £400. For the price you pay for this product, you get really good value for money.
