First Real Review,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
So here's the first and only review I've written from the stuff I've bought on Amazon. I did not base my decision on these other fake reviews as I did my own research to see how it holds up against all other sub $200 tablets. Everything I read seemed like it was a very promising product.
Cons: At one point, I turned on the tablet and the whole screen was pixilated. It eventually cleared up but this is not something that should happen with any tablet, ever. You have to download and install your own .apk files. I've found that once the tablet goes into "sleep mode", it's very difficult to get it to boot back up. It took me 4 hours at one point to get the device to turn back on. The keyboard buttons are too flat and makes it difficult to type.
Pros: it has a beautifully responsive touch screen that responds just as well as an iPad. The internet ran screaming fast. It's really nice to watch movies on (even though the resolution is 800x600, but it's a sub-$200 tablet, to be expected). There is no choppiness at all like you see with a lot of tablets under $200
Overall it's a good product, but has a couple major bugs that need to be addressed. Hope this helps others make a decision on this product.

You didn't mention you have to pay monthly fee for your $99 Samsung Galaxy tab :).
There are bugs (most are Google Android bugs, not the hardware bugs of this tablet), that's what you have to live with if you decide to own any Android tablet, otherwise, you should pay $500 to get an iPad. Those bugs will go away with the firmware upgrade. You simply cannot find any tablet with capacitive screen with this low price.
There are plenty of reviews of woPad v7+ on the Internet. I would recommend you Google "woPad v7+" before you buy it. Then you know this is definitely one of the best deals.

where can you get the firmware upgrade? the user's guide that came with the tablet is pretty useless....provides no troubleshooting or good directions for anything about the tablet.

There is no firmware upgrade as it's only a couple weeks old. Another thing I do not agree with at all, is how employees from WoPad are posting reviews on their own product. I know this for fact after speaking to their customer service. It's like asking a waiter at a restaurant if their food is good. No one will say anything negative about it.

There is no mention of a Tab on this review, and you're inaccurate that it costs $100 to have a Tab. Go back to your lair, troll.

I have to agree with J. Butler's that other reviews are fake. If you take a look at what other reviewers had reviewed, you see they they'll all reviewed similar items. Seems definitely fishy to me.
