I brought my MAIPAD about a month ago, so now I have now had it for some time I feel I can now write a good assessment of how I think it performs
First of all the user manual that comes with it does not really help very much, so looking on line for how to use Android App and devices will help you loads.
This is the device I brought - 10" Android 2.2 Tablet PC 1Ghz 512MB RAM, 16GB STORAGE, CAM, HDMI HD SCREEN! GPS
I brought it to replace my Nokia N800 and Archos AV700 media player
I need a device to access e-mail edit word documents, and look at photos and videos while working away from home.
Let's start with the Good points
The price 159.95 compared to may other Tablet PCs at this spec level it's by far the best
Scrolling through photos taken on a Nikon D40 highest dpi setting is very smooth using the preinstalled photo viewer software.
Video files also play very well and I have not encountered any problems with the different file formats I use MP4 - AVI and others all work fine.
With three 32gb memory cards I have the same storage space as my Archons AV700 and no additional device to carry around and charge.
The Music Player software that's built in does the job well enough, nothing special but its all you need for music.
Internet access through Wi-Fi is easy to set up and took no longer that the time it takes to type in your routers passkey, while I'm in my office the Ethernet Connection is also very useful
Using the Accounts and Sync App in the settings menu I was able to "link-up" all my different email accounts, Yahoo mail G-mail MSN they can all be accessed with ease once set up even my private "paid for" work email account is now fully accessible
The screen is very clear and bright and the touch sensitivity is good, calibrating the screen once in a while fixes any glitches you might get.
Having no moving parts like a fan to cool it down makes it totally silent
From the Android Market you can download 1000s of FREE App
OliverOffice is a great App for Word processing and other office based work
I connected my A4TECH wireless keyboard via USB and it works perfectly
The Battery life is good and outlasts the two devices I mentioned.
GPS is good and the Receiver that's included works well.
the battery life is good, longer than most Netbooks and laptops I have used
With a little `playing around" you will discover how to customize the screen to show the apps you use the most and organize the device just the way you want.
It will also read a 32gb SD card via the USB with no problems at all, at this point I have not used the internal card slot on the side of the unit, I could not get my 250gb WD Passport external drive to work (FAT32 or NTFA format)
Overall I have to say I am very impressed with the unit and it has worked beyond my expectations based on its price.
Ok so some Bad Points
I found the Wi-Fi range is greatly reduced when trying to connect form another room unlike my N800
The built in speakers are very poor, but through earphones the sound quality is good.
The device does not have a protective case included
The HDMI port is mini HDMI so the chances are you will need to buy one for the device but they are only 1.89 from play
As you can see I have found many more good points than bad with this device, for the money it costs and what its capable of doing I think its amazing.
It's NOT an I-Pad its not a Galaxy Tab but its not close to the almost 400 price tag.
If you want to stay connected in the digital world through email - Facebook - Skype or what ever else you ues this will do it and more, well worth every penny.
