Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this as a birthday present for my mom. She enjoys surfing the web right before bedtime and had been using her ipod touch, but the screen is soooo little it's hard for her to see anything. She is also disabled and there are days that she is in bed or on the couch all day unable to move. I wanted her to have something larger that was a multi-tasker that was easy to use. SHE LOVES THIS TABLET!! It has taken her a few days to get the hang of it, and she says she still hasn't discovered all of the bells and whistles, but it lets her surf the web without having to sit at a desk where the computer is. It's also an ereader and the built in Barnes and Noble app is awesome and very easy to use. It also comes with a couple of games (one of them is solitaire, she was thrilled :) )But she has already downloaded a few more from the app store. In my opinion, it is totally worth the cost and I am just thankful to see her so happy.

This is the exact reason i'm thinking about getting one for my mom. She isn't the most computer savvy but i actually got her to start using my old iPod touch. She likes using it for email, web browsing; like for news and recipes. The only bad thing about that is that it is too small and hard to read. Thanks for writing this great review and i hope she likes it as much as your mom did!

In your opinion, would this be a good item on which my 85 year old mother could read e-mail from her family?

Laurie, Usually, these knock-off tablets aren't worth a dollar, but having read your review of it and how happy you had made your mom happy about it moved me. I will be purchasing this based on the touching review you put on here, thank you and best wishes to you and your mom.
