Let me start by saying that I usually don't write reviews but hopefully my review can help someone else. I was very sceptical about ordering a tablet that I didn't actually see or use first. The only tablet I've used is my sisters IPad, which I've borrowed 2 different times when I've traveled for work. I travel 4 days every month for work, which includes a 1 1/2 hour flight. I have PC at my office so there is no need for me to take my full size laptop, unless I want to check email or surf the web while in my hotel room. Having my sisters IPad was perfect, but I didn't want to pay that much money. I'm also not an Apple user. I have the Droid Incredible 2 phone and Windows PC's, which I'm very happy with.
I looked at every tablet under $300 on Amazon for 2 days straight before I ordered this one. Overall I am very happy with my purchase. I ordered it on Dec 27th and received it on Jan 3rd. Very quick considering it came from China and I'm in MI. The tablet was fully charged when I opened it, turn on easily and is very similar to my phone so it's very easy to use. I got it connected to my home WiFi in seconds and went right to the Android Market. All of the apps I use were available, which is more than the apps available on the IPad. Plus I can Skype on my tablet. The battery life was around 4 hours using WiFi, it charged easily, it rotates direction smoothly, and the screen is very crisp. Pictures look great, video plays well, and the capactive touch is good (not the same as IPad, but works fine for me). I have not used Skype yet, so I will update my review later. Pages load quickly and look good.
The only negative I have is the width, I expected it to be closer to a square, but I'm getting used to it.
For under $250 I am very happy with my purchase. I can't wait to travel with it next week.

So far so good its easy to do but I wish it has more information on how to do things when your older as I am we don't have quite the computer skills that the kids of today have so it would be nice to have something telling you how to download like music from your own cds just better information
