Does anyone know anything about this tablet PC?

Just found it by accident.

Do yourself a favor and skip it. It's a rebadged knock off with resistive touch screen, poor storage, low performance CPU/GPU, low battery life, and no access to Google's Market.

Do you think this tablet would work if my normal usage is going to be ereader and planner (calendar)? The memory is expandable to 34GB.

It would for that, yes. I'm not sure how you would get your books, but it should be ok for such simple work. For the money I see them selling for though ($140), I would spend an extra $20 and pick up a Nook Color. Much better in all respects, and should something go wrong, you can walk into any Barnes and Noble to get help.

im looking at the same one all i need is to up load job pics and type contracts maybe a little web do you think it would work for me

It's not likely to display your pics well, the surfing is going to be on the slow side, and apps will be running slow as well. If you're willing to put up with that, it should be ok. I'd concerned about how long it would work.

Schmidt, why is your back ground and knowledge of this item or are you just a customer with only one view?

Hello GJ,

My background is over 20yrs in the electronics and PC industry, working from the manufacturing floor on up into engineering and management, and also an enthusiast in all gadgetry. In short, I'm paid to keep abreast of what is coming, what is here, and what has been, then applying that knowledge. When I look into a given device, I look at everything there is to know about it. What it is, what its made of, who it's from, how they got it, what details were intentionally left out, etc. From that, I form an opinion and give my advice.

Does that answer your question, or what I confused?

Yes, thank you.

Maybe I made a mistake, I ordered one a day ago.
On their website they had:

http://www.evomaxtablets.com/pad10.html
"Google Android Apps: Customize your Android tablet to your personal needs. Choose from thousands of Google Android apps for free or paid download. "

Are you sure it is that weak- maybe I should cancel the order.

Thanks for your thoughts.

It might be able to run them, but that doesn't mean that it can run them well. For example, I have a friend with an old Android phone. She can load tons of apps, but they run painfully slow because her phone itself can't go any faster. The same apps on my phone run lightening quick.

I am very interested in purchasing a tablet. Basically light web browsing, ebay, you tube, facebook and checking email is all i would be using it for. I need it to be quick. And under $200. Been looking into the kindle fire but would like a bigger screen, any suggestions?

C. Schmidt says:
The Le Pan TC970 is probably your best bet.

I am interestered in getting a tablet basically for light web browsing, email, facebook, little you tube and mainly ebay shopping. I have no idea what would be best. I am looking into a kindle fire but dont want to end up spending a ton on apps. I would like a bigger screen. Which tablet would you suggest?

May i ask why you suggest that. What are its pros and cons

Well Jenni, it's like this. Just as you can't walk into a jewelry store and get a flawless one karat diamond ring in a platinum setting for $100, you also can't pick up an excellent 10" tablet for under $200. So, you have to make some sacrifices, and in this case, it's a 9.7" off brand tablet. It has good reviews, sports a capacitive touch screen with decent viewing angles, access to Google's Market, and can access Amazon's Appstore and other services. Unlike the Fire you looked at, the TC970 has a web cam, GPS, SD card slot, and Bluetooth. The CPU inside is lesser than the Fire, but should still provide an ok tablet experience.

I bought the 7" for trips-works very well at the airport / I use mostly the plug in USB
fast and adequate for emails etc.
Holds battery charge fine for trips-
I am very satisfied and while not a computer geek do my own websites, and run
an export company. The $69 unit runs $100 w shipping and insurance USB connector
etc. When all said and done works fine for me.

This product is a real piece of *insert curse word here*! I made a mistake and I should have known better! I thought "What a steal! for only $79!" Well ya get whatcha paid for. $79 down the draind!!!! The crap doesnt calibrate properly. the touch screen doesnt work. the wifi doesnt work! It's just a piece of crap! And it comes from Hong Kong! So to ship it back for a returns cost almost just as much as what I paid for it! I bought it from www.evomaxtablets.com. Stay away from this piece of ....!

As with any off brand tablet, especially cheap ones, one takes a serious gamble when they purchase. The cheaper they are, the bigger the gamble.

Define "cheap."

Posted on Feb 29, 2012 2:38:18 PM PST
the cheapest that i can get away with.

i forgot to mention that i need the tablet to be able to display Google Business Photos (basically Google Street view, but inside of businesses)

C. Schmidt says:
So, you want something that can surf well and has a good display for showing off pictures, in the 10" range. Correct?

The cheapest you're going to get is probably the Le Pan II. It's only 9.7" but that's probably close enough. It also has enough ponies under the hood to push the web. The Lenovo IdeaPad A1 is a second, cheaper, option, but it doesn't have the CPU power and has a much lesser display.
