Great device at the price but apps using location lock up the tablet,
This review is from: NATPC M010S 8GB Capacitive Android 4.0 ICS (Ice Cream, Sandwich) , 7" Android Tablet PC Responsive Capacitive Screen - Flash Player 11.1 - Compatible with BBC iPlayer / Youtube / Facebook - HD 2160P - compatible with SKYPE VIDEO calling (Personal Computers)
Firstly, for the price (£65 with postage) this is a great product. It runs BBC iPlayer and Kindle perfectly. However, any app that tries to find your location will crash and the only way to use the device again is to power it down and restart it. The following apps do *NOT* work on this device -
London Tube Status
There is a general problem with apps calling geolocation. As this device has no GPS nor phone connection, Android uses the WiFi signal to look up the location via Google's database collected when they did the StreetView filming and data collection.
I emailed Wendy at NATPC and she was very quick at replying and trying to help but could not solve the problem. I suspect there is a hidden setting somewhere that gives the wrong information back to the apps and this is what causes it to crash.
Still even with this, I give the device 3 stars and Wendy and NATPC deserve 5 stars for their speedy service.
