First thing is first: The device has 4GBs of storage and 512MBs of RAM.
As other reviewers have mentioned the device does not come with any application stores pre-installed. There is a pink box (titled "Download App Stores") in the Polaroid widget on the third "window" from the left that will send you to Southern Telecom's (the manufacturer of Polaroid's tablets) website. The website will allow you to download any of the following application stores: Amazon Appstore, 1Mobile Market, Opera 12, SlideME Market, GetJar, or Mobihand.
You can install Google Market 3.1.3 on the device, though. (The reason Google Play is not available for Polaroid tablets is because of licensing agreements and compatibility requirements.) 3.1.3 is the only version I have been successful with installing; I have tried new versions up until the application became "Google Play" and they all become unresponsive on the tablet when you try to run the application.
Netflix and Google Play Movies & TV both work on the device without any issues. I have no idea about Hulu Plus since I do not want to give them my credit card information. Twitch.tv and Live TV both work as well. I have not tried it yet, but ES File Explorer's "file server" option probably works as well if you want to stream videos from a file server to the tablet.
I would like to make note that while the above-mentioned Google application works, there are a couple of others that do not because of the use of Google Market instead of Google Play.Read more ›
Well, here we go.....was using it for looking on Craigslist for some vehicles...working just fine. This morning I tried getting on & the Polaroid screen comes up like it's uploading. The lock comes up for a split second & goes back too the Polaroid screen. It won't let me unlock & go from there. I'm guessing it's defective & needs to be exchanged for a different one. I was trying to take the back off to try & take batery out & reset it since there is no reset button or function on these things. I couldn't get it apart, so it's going back to be exchanged.
It has a jellybean operating system and it is SO slow that I get a complete sentence typed out before the FIRST WORD even shows up on the page. As far as using it for the internet FORGET. IT !!!!!!!! I have a REALLY CHEAP Kyocera smart ( and I use that term lightly) phone which is also a piece of electronic crap...(also from my daughter).......and as crappy and cheap that Kyocera is, it runs circles around this piece of junk Polaroid tablet for speed on the internet.
As far as the dual cameras go......you'd get a better picture quality if you gave a kindergartners a pics of paper and a box of crayons!!
I say DO NOT waste your money purchasing this product. Spend a few dollars more and get a Kindle or some other brand tablet. (and as for me, I'm telling my daughter to NOT buy me any more electronic gifts. Lol)

I hate this tablet. It has poor graphics. Even though there is a SD card slot you can't move anything to it. Total waste! Read morePublished 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
