The tablet is cheap, small/ light and great for surfing internet; emails on yahoo, gmail, msn; facebook, and Standard Definition video on Skyfire 2.0, YouKu, and todou, etc. The Touch panel is quick in response and scrolling up and down smoothly. Zoom in and out is also effortless with a stylus. Its fun to be able to try out a lots of free apps- on the unit.
The unit Upon received works well. However, soon the user will feel strained as Youtube video/ the video in the browser could never play; and the AppsMarket cannot download files. This is a flaw in the original firmware.
Upgrading would be a challenge to many new user, and risk the possibility to brick the unit Bootcode rendering it totally useless. Fortunately, there are helps from Forum in this site and www.Slatedroid.com , to re-install the working firmware into the unit. However, there are some whom still had not been successful todate.
Android 1,6 does not support flash.. so Youtube Video Don't play. The CPU is small and GPU could not handle all Video format and high definition video well.
The manufacturer should at least include:
a) A recovery disk or provide a link to a site to download the recovery file.
b) Perform Quality check /test AppMarket to confirm working before shipment to customer.
c) Install the free Skyfire2.0 instead of the standard browser.
d) Upgrade the apps "youtube support package"
Since Youtube/ video does not work on the unit, the advertisment should at least indicate so.
All, lets hope that the new skyfire2.3 released last week would work on this unit, then video would play properly
great for surfing internet and watching small video, fun learning about Androids, download apps - games , etc. (after re-installing Fytouch firmware)
