Advantages: 7-inch screen with gorgeous display; Nice camera for shooting clear videos and pic
Disadvantages: Comes with contract; otherwise costs $600
When buying this, I was having difficulty in choosing between buying this or an iPad. After my friends recommending this, I finally bought this. I wont say I'm dissatisfied, I was just expecting more functionality and freedom.
The tab's screen measures 7 inches, and runs Google Android OS 2.2 . I bought the tab for $399 with a two-year contract and a monthly data plan from Sprint, priced at $59 with a 5 GB cap. This is very annoying, as I'd like to change my carrier to AT&T or Verizon.
The tablet has a nice, glossy and beautiful screen display.Movies and videos look quite gorgeous. The touch screen is very responsive, to my fingers at least.
On the back is a 3 Megapixel camera that shoots very clear video and photos, provided that the shooting conditions are not, uh, unfavorable.
The tablet is small, and light. That's the exact reason I bought it, and I would be lying if I said it didn't stand up to what I expected from it. Battery life is decent, at least for my personal needs.
Now for the cons:
I noticed that most apps I download from the Android market look very weird, i.e, makes my display look like the display of something very cheap.
As I mentioned before, I had to buy it with a contract from Sprint. Now I'm caught for another year with Sprint and its crappy data plans.
Summary: Fast and compact device, with the contract thing as the only major problem.
