Good: Great build quality, great screen, great media player,very good browsing speed. £15 free spending.
Bad: Random crash,but only once. No SD card expansion, some poor app performance.
Comment: Have had this tablet for a couple of days now. Looks great and feels even better. Can't fault the build quality as it excellent. Only problems found so far is with apps. Kindle app doesn't show all the content on my kindle. Drop box app crashes when trying to upload content. I have downloaded files to the 'download' folder but these files won't open or allow themselves to be shared. So far I can't use this device for the activities I bought for. Not impressed by functionality, only the build quality.
Good: No SIM card (yes that's right)
Bad: What are the security features like
Comment: This could take the clinical side of the NHS by storm. There is currently a migration from desk based information to information on the move. I'm thinking here of blood results, e prescribing, patient notes, pacs (X Ray), etc.
The current solutions for clinical staff who are working on their feet a lot of the time seem to be laptops on a trolley or iPads. The former is of limited use. iPads, though gorgeous, are exactly that - no use for a workaday, focussed environment. They are just on the side of being too heavy and big to lug around on the hoof all day. Too many features, dare I say.
The Nexus 7 has a form factor that allows you to stuff in your pocket or bag while taking to patients, relatives, staff and also - it's wifi only. In healthcare, and particularly hospitals where IT governance is king, a locked down device limited to the corporate intranet is vital. If this device has security features like the iPad it could sweep the board. The only thing that could be better would be an e-ink Kindle lookalike capable of web browsing (although wouldn't be much use for viewing XRays unless there is a breakthrough in e-ink tech).
Wonder if the hoped for iPad mini will come up with the goods in this respect?
Bad: no flash
Comment: It's the best £160 I have ever spend
Good: Price and most spec.
Bad: Lack of SD card slot, HDMI
Comment: Would be stunning if it had a SD slot. As it is it's severly limited as a media player.
Once apps are loaded it will quickly run out of space.
Needs rooted to allow OTG usb pen drive use.
Good: great price, Hi Res screen, amazing tegra 3 chipset, new google android 4.1, really comfortable
Bad: no micro SD card slot
Comment: i do not really care about the camera and the HDMI out cuz i have my xperia S that works well with those functionalities, the only thing that's not good is the unexpandable memory and that there's no 32 GB version(at least for now),
However, the screen has a great angle and a good resolution
The android 4.1 uses the GPU along with the CPU so it's really "butter", The battery life is good enough, the great tegra 3 chipset is just as how we expect from a quad-core procesor so this this tablet is great for gaming and watching movies on the car(for example).
Finally the price, for 250 US$ this tablet is just CHEAP, there's nothing to say,
Good: Price, Performance, Looks, OS, and Its Awesome
Bad: They should of brought out a 10inch version.
Comment: Pretty awesome stuff this little machine, packs everything important, including that whopping Tegra 3 - its on par with the asus 3ee Pad @ £400. Looking forward to the android update on my S3 - Jelly Bean looks so good!
Comment: its nice tab to other tab in this in market
Good: Looks awesome and is dead cheep
Bad: No 3G
Comment: It is the biggest thing since the first Ipod!!! And I want one!!!
Good: Really light weight, Great screen, very fast
Bad: No 3G, battery life
Comment: Mine arrived a few days ago and I do absolutely love it. The set up experience was best in class, even better than the Kindle Fire or iPad first time set up. Project Butter has made a real difference and its lovely to use.
It has switched itself off once, but it turned on after a few minutes again (no I didn't download an update). It also has to remain tethered to my phone the whole time when I'm out of the house but that isnt really what it was designed for.
All in all its a fantastic tablet - looking forward to all my favourite apps being optimised.
Good: everything and it's not an big Iphone with no phone function
Comment: great price, perfect size
