Comment: Loved this review, it's a really great product, I don't know what I would do without it! But if like me you were a bit shocked with the price here's a tip on how to get this item for basically a £10 and a little bit of work!
All you need to do is go to www.the free scene.com (remove spaces) and sign up for any offer you like.
Its all been proven by BBC, CNN, Channel 4 and Channel 5
I hope this helps someone on here!

Good: Smart friend in my new living life
Comment: I lov lot my iPod ,it's so pretty 2me
Good: Nice design
Bad: No SD card expansion
Comment: How you can say that the bad point against a Nexus 10 is a lack of expansion is beyond me. The iPad doesn't have one, but of course in your eyes that's not a bad point. Your reviews are so biased towards Apple.
Comment: Aside from price, this is the best tablet on the market. End of.
Comment: Aside from the price, this really is the best tablet on the market. End of.
Good: Another CrApple product designed to make the company more money from the flocks of iSheep that will undoubtedly "upgrade" after only a few months of having the last one.
Bad: It's another technically sub par CrApple product marketed to brainwashed iSheep to get their money from them.
Comment: Of course it's the best tablet out there... It's made by CrApple and this is CNET. Enough said. Thankfully it's not a Lomas review which never fail to morph into a no holds barred CrApple love in.
I have never really been the greatest fan of Apple products. The design has usually been aesthetically pleasing and sometimes downright gorgeous. But every time, despite updates, the OS and UI have never failed to disappoint on a royal scale. That didn't really bother me as I simply chose not to buy their stuff and didn't have to endure it...
... that was until I was given the last iPad as a present not long after launch, and my employer decided to change everyone's work phones for iPhone4s's. Both within a week of each other. Lucky me. I decided to give them a fair try for a few weeks. Never have two gadgets infuriated me so much! The way CrApple has locked them down and restricted users from using them the way users want to smacks of a communist totalitarian approach. Sure the two igadgets worked well together, I just couldn't get them to work how I wanted them to! Practically no customisation options, which for someone who likes tech to work to his requirements instead of pandering to the wishes of the OS was beyond infuriating. Jailbreaking the iPhone wasn't even an option given it was a work phone. I also wasn't particularly impressed by the technical quality of the hardware. Sure it was fairly pretty but it seemed to me that CrApple has rested on its laurels, knocking out technically sub-par tech that looks nice, and it's the aesthetics rather than anything that has spawned such a formidable flock of iSheep.
Anyway, after 3 weeks I'd had it with the to iDevices. I persuaded tech support at work to get me a Samsung Galaxy Nexus (which was a breath of fresh air, customisable, not to mention more capable - even tech at work have now started giving them to other employees instead of the iPhone). I also sold my iPad on to an iFan at work. I have held off buying a tablet until now, and having had some time with a preview Nexus 10 that a developer friend of mine has, that's what I'll be getting now - head and shoulders above the competition.
Good: not a lot
Comment: it's strange seeing how you can get an Android pad with almost identicle specks for £235 the CUBE U9-GT2 but never a mention
