I love this device, now that I have everything working the way I need it. Looks great, love the size, and it is quick.

I had 2 cons which I have reversed with work-arounds.

1) No Google Play - Use amazon app store instead
2) Skype did not work with the latest verson - use version skype_v2.5.4.162.apk Works fine

Currently the working version of Flash is com.adobe.flashplayer_111115007.apk

All of these apps can be installed without Google Play. Just google the versions I have listed here and you can find them.

I was able to find everything else I wanted on Amazon App Store. Netflix runs fine. Device has not crashed once.

I also use it for Wireless Site planning and RF interference detection which the small size works great for. I was previously using my phone but the battery would run down in an hour. I can use this for hours with constant use and it still has life left.

This is a great device for the price. Don't think you are going to pay $150 and get the craftsmanship you will with an Apple product. However I have an IPAD 1 and this device is just as quick. It only lacks the scratch resistant glass and metal case.

I currently have a screen protector and a leather case with builtin keyboard. Abosultely would recommend this to someone look for a budget friendly tablet.

I'm a big fan of the droid OS. At work I run all of our corp mobile phones on droid, am currently testing droid deskphones on a few desks, I have the ipad, a viewsonic and gtab that I use.

Cost/benefit - I don't let the kids play on my tablets, but felt they could benefit from a tablet. I bought 4 of the 7042-4's for less than I could get 1 new iPad. So, for starters, each of my 4 kids gets their own tablet with their own email and apps on it. As far as bang for the buck, the kyros takes the cake when I can get 4 kids their own tablets for less than I could get 1 tablet for all 4 to share.

Screen - The screen is fantastic. The 7 inch screen rivals the quality, accuracy and sensitivity of the ipad2, the multi-touch is just as advertised.

Storage - It comes without an SD card and I have extra's laying around, if you intend to install a lot of apps or store a lot of music, get an extra SD card.

Battery - The battery is decent, I've seen my kids work on the tablet (games/homework/surfing) for 4-5 hours at a time without a recharge, I watched a 2 hour movie on one of them and it still had 75% battery left. We generally park devices on their charging stations at night, however I'm sure a few have missed a night, but nobody has gotten the batter shutdown yet.

OS - It's ice cream, not everything has been updated to run on ice cream. Specifically many of the kids games are not updated. My kids range from 3-10 years old, the educational games are more prone to not work on ice cream than the non-educational games. That's an unfortunate trend because we only allow educational games on weekdays. I've been about to find about 5-8 educational games for each age group to install on their tablets after testing well over 50 games!

- Great Speed and Usability Improvements.
- Missing Features and many new Compatibility Issues.
- Touch screen often does not respond (seems to be humidity related)

The tablet itself is speedy and the capacitive multi-touch screen worked wonderfully at first. Picture viewing has improved by orders of magnitude, and all the basic apps packaged with the tablet have significant feature upgrades. My biggest complaint is that many of the file management features seem to have been eliminated or replaced with more automated processes. (e.g. the media player automatically scans your SD memory card and finds all media files) This seems at first to be an advancement, but it takes away the users ability to navigate to specific folders. The collection of all media is lumped together, making the process of viewing specific files more tedious, especially when a significant number of files are present.

My biggest complaint about the physical product is the plastic edge feels cheap, it is wide with a sharp edge that rests on your hand while holding the tablet. It is so sharp that it will cut your skin if you stroke your hand along it. Perhaps it was a quality control issue, since the hard edge can easily be filed down.

Android 4.0 is a welcome upgrade. Loads of new features and significant usability improvements. Too bad the system crashes so often. Media that played on the prior Kyros tablets just won't play on the MID7042. Some will launch, but almost all inadvertently stall at some point. Many formats will not play at all. Plugging the same SD card in the previous versions of the Kyros didn't exhibit the same problems. All launched and played flawlessly. The same goes for Android applications purchased through the Amazon Appstore for Android.

I got to say, I'm really pleased with my purchase. The table comes on in about 35 seconds (yes, I timed it), is easily navigated, and connects to the internet rather quickly. It's a decent size too; not too small, not too big. I was worried that the screen was going to be tiny and I'd be unable to see it, but it's pretty nice. The screen takes up almost the entire front of the tablet, minus about a half inch along the side and about a millimeter along the remaining edges. It's also pretty responsive too. Some small objects in games might get a bit sketchy and take a few ties to click, but over all it's great. It opens Apps quickly, plays everything I downloaded including a 3D (as in Mario 64, not Titanic 3D) game I found in Amazon's App Store. I see many reviews complaining about Google's store not being able to run on this tablet, but I don't see the problem running with Amazon's thing; an app is an app is an app, right? who cares where it was bought from?

I took this on a trip with me to Reno over the past few days and it was really worth the money. Renting movies through the hotel would've been expensive, and the place I stayed at didn't have any movie channels. So I put on some shows and movies I bought onto the SD card I got with this and they all, for the most part (more below), ran smoothly. I was able to watch two movies back to back without the need to recharge. I still have about 45% battery life even after watching about 2.5~3.5 hours of video straight. (EDIT - However, leaving it on during the writing of this review has dropped it down to 14% in the matter of 10-20 mins, so perhaps it doesn't give an accurate reading of the battery...)

The tablet supports up to a 32 GB micro SD card, by the way.
