Comment: For the price, £299 I paid, I personally feel that this is a very under rated tablet. An I don't know about you but the weight and size aren't an issue at all neither is not having a rear camera. I don't see the issue of not having a rear camera on a 10inch price of tech that bridges the gap between mobile phones and laptops/notebooks.
Most gadgets we own now have cameras, so why just add it to another one I just think its needless and to pull the A200 down for it is ridiculous.
Comment: @Androider, It is as of about 2 o'clock this afternoon :) ICS + rooted, seems substantially slicker now.
Comment: So your A200 isn't running 4.0?
Comment: Not bad, seemed a little sluggish out of the box, but a factory reset sorted that out. Did not ship with ICS, in fact it updated to 3.2.1 on first boot.
Comment: I also don't find the weight an issue, compared to my Xoom, it doesn't feel heavy at all and can easily be held with one hand and operated with the other, but that's just my opinion.
Good: excellent tablet for a small price
Bad: Nothing yet!
Comment: This tablet is brilliant. It runs ICS out of the box, the lack of rear camera isn't an issue as I have a phone and camera for this and fail to see why tablets need them? Just another gadget with a camera that won't really get much use, so the fact this tablet has cut this and lowered the price makes it stand out more for me.
I also have a Motorola Xoom, which I have now given to my girlfriend upon buying this tablet and I do not regret the change one bit.
It does everything a tablet should, and costs a good £200/300 less than the top tablets! Its a bargain.
