A tablet with a capacitive touch screen, it supports 3D games and Skype video calls while offering the lowest price,
This tablet is simply the best in terms of performance for the price.
It uses the expensive 5-point touch capacitive screen, which you only see in high-end Android tablets.
It runs the most advanced A8 CPU with a built-in GPU. Every app runs very fast. It supports 3D games. You can play your favorite game on this tablet.
It supports all HD video formats, even the highest; 1080P. All videos play very smoothly. It has a micro-HDMI port, so you can play video and games on your big screen TV.
You can use the tablet as a video conference call device with Skype.
You can even connect it to a USB keyboard or mouse with the built-in USB ports.
It uses a high-density plastic as the case, which is not as cool as the woPad i7 and i8, which use an aluminum case, but it still looks very high class. It's very similar to the case of Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The tablet feels solid. Time will tell the quality of the tablet. I have not yet put it to much use, so I can't report on the durability of the item at this time.
Battery life: 5-
The battery lasts about 5 to 9 hours when surfing the web or when watching videos. Standby battery time is quite long--at least a couple days.
This is the lowest-priced Android tablet with a capacitive touch screen and the A8 CPU.
Items to note:
1. You won't be able download all apps in the Android Market and your default Google browser may crash on some websites. Those problems are Google Android software bugs and have nothing to do with this tablet. If you are an Android fan, you will understand these problems and live with them. If you have issues with this, you should spend $550 and purchase an iPad.
2. You may have problems connecting with some Wi-Fi routers. In general the Wi-Fi in the tablet should be working, but the problem is the compatibility. As you see from the product description, this tablet supports Wi-Fi standard 102.1 b/g, not "a and n". If it doesn't work for your Wi-Fi, your Wi-Fi is probably older and needs an upgrade. You can try it in a friend's home or at your office before you conclude it's a Wi-Fi problem on the actual tablet.
3. Set the right expectations. Don't use iPad standards to judge this tablet. Keep in mind you are paying 1/3 of the price of an iPad.
4. If you want Skype and "Angry Bird Seasons HD" for this tablet, you can download them from the woPadUSA website.
5. This tablet was originally designed for the China market. You can set the language to English. If you see the Chinese language in some of the apps, just ignore it. Download apps yourself from the Android Market.
6. Perform your own research. You can Google "woPad v7+", and you will see plenty of news and reviews about this tablet.
This tablet was a featured tablet by "Tech Crunch", as one of the top 3 Internet news portals by AOL.

This might be a good alternative to higher priced tablets. Hopefully it can compete with the name brands.

I have to admit I've always been weary of any tablet outside of the iPad, but this extremely helpful review may have wavered that opinion.

Great review and great product. Entry level tablet is the way to go if you are, like me, constantly outside.

I was one that would always plumb for an iPad2. However this looks just as good. I am now having to re-think my next move.
