Dropad a8 7'' android 2.2 tablet
It develops an engraved conception that we can hardly expect awesome features from a low-end android tablet PC except low price. That suits our logics pretty well. Things with sound quality and affordable price, they are poetic enough but desperately few. So when I lay my hand on this Dropad A8 android 2.2 tablet, negative presumptions flood in my mind before I even get it reviewed. Well, I have to admit that sometimes you wrong something without reason and vice versa.
There is need to offer some brief introduction to this Samsung PV 210 capacitive tablet before I proceed to my review. No exact name is labeled on this 7-inch tablet, and Dropad A8 is probably the one. Dropad A8 comes with impressive specs, it seems to me. It is packed with SamsungS5PV210 1GB ARM Cortex-A8 processor, android 2.2, 7-inch capacitive multi-touch display with 800*480 resolution, 512MB of DDR2, 4GB of Nand flash with microSD card expansion up to 32GB, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, built-in Wifi, 1080p HDMI output, a battery of 3000mAh, with support of 3G network of WCDMA/TD-SCDMA/CDMA2000.

From perspective of design, it looks like a larger version of iPhone 4. When I hold it in hand, it gives me a sense of substantiality in depth and weight. The round button in the front, not like other tablet PC, is for Home instead of Back. The Back button is on the top, and I am not so used to it that it brings me to Home screen now and then though I just want to back to the previous operation. The camera is conspicuously placed in the middle top in the front, a white round line marking it out. The ports in the right side include a microSD card slot, a HDMI output, two mini USB, a power switch, a 3.5mm earphone jack, a DC plughole. Power, Menu and Back buttons are on the top.

Due to its potent processor, it doesn’t take long to get the tablet started. I set Wifi and browse some webpages, and it performs quite smoothly. Since it is an android 2.2 tablet, I test the flash with sort of critical attitude. To my surprise, its online video playback is easy to go, and delicate colors and clear picture quality impress me a lot. I intend to get rather exasperated when I test the online flash of some android 2.2 tablets. Dropad a8 definitely saves me from the entire disappointment of a multitude of tablets PCs.
3G dongle is also easy to handle, and no complicated steps are involved.

There is a built-in android apps store in the tablet, and miscellaneous apps and games are easy to download and use.

G-sensors games are also very attracting.
On the whole, Dropad a8 will satisfy most of our expectations from an android tablet. It has great potentiality to turn to a high-end tablet PC if some proper improvement is enhanced. Get rid of our stereotypical preconception and learn to appreciate.
