This is a well-made 7" Android tablet, running ICS. Was up and running straight out of the box. Screen quality is good (bright and clear), viewing angle is a little limited but that only concerns the person looking over your shoulder. Typing is as easy as on an ipad. Wifi connectivity was a breeze. Web surfing is not as quick or as slick as my ipad, but I could buy 4 of these for what I paid for the ipad. Flash works just fIne. Comes with all the apps you will need to get started - email, web browser, google maps, access to the full android market, Skype and so on. Comes with a neat carry "purse".
So, what's not to like?
Many apps will not install (device not compatible, country not acceptable etc) but I could always find equivalent apps that would install. For example, Textfree would not install but Text2me did. All the games I tried, install just fine. There are workarounds from the Android community to bypass these install restrictions (same Issues exist with some name brands) but the available apps are plenty for me.
Skype works fine but the camera quality is poor, as is the video streaming frame-rate. This is not a video conferencing device.
There's no website for support. I suspect Kocaso is just a brand name for this tablet and not a company as such. Only a potential issue if you wanted to migrate to a future Android release. This tablet uses Ice Cream Sandwich which is very stable.
There's no community of Kocaso owners that I could find. Perhaps they will start to appear - these tablets are selling well.
Battery drains very quickly with wifi running and accessing graphic-intensive websites. Watching movies with wifi off - it lasted through 2 movies.
I'm a happy Android tablet owner.
