4.0 out of 5 stars Very impressed., 21 Jan 2011
This review is from: Storage Options 51624 Scroll Tablet PC (Electronics)
This looks and feels like a quality item. It has an aluminium case rather than plastic, very nice. Good Wi-Fi, took it all around the house and outside, it never missed a beat as it streamed video from youTube. Installation and setup were very easy. The picture and sound quality are good, screen responsiveness excellent. Screen rotation sensor responsiveness is fair. The application download is easy to use and fast, this multitasks so you can get on with other things while downloading applications most of which take very little time to download anyway. The only issue I have is that Android 2.1 does not seem to be compatible with many television streaming services such as BBCi Player so the HDMI is not as useful as I hoped it would be. I've seen these listed alongside other similar devices that cost 100+ more, this holds its own. I took a bundle deal that included the SOKPAD case/keyboard, with hindsight I would have bought just a case as the on-screen keyboard is excellent for most uses. If you're using this an e-book reader, games player, media player, net surfer etc it is very good, surfs faster than my PC and the 7" screen is big enough to view web pages in desktop rather than mobile phone version. I would recommend adding the power management widget to your desktop and using it to manage WI-FI on/off and screen brightness as these are real battery drainers. The few questions I had about deleting bookmarks and removing widgets from the desktop were quickly and easily answered by numerous on-line support forums.

***** If you're reading this after May 2011 consider checking out the newer miScroll or the capacitive version of this same tablet, both are from the same manufacturer and both feature a version of Android that should support Flash and hence sites such as BBCi Player *****

Get the mplayer app from the market. Doesn't do live streaming that well but a good replacement for the iplayer on BBC programmes.
