It gives me a sense of delusion when I hold this 5 inch android 2.1 tablet in hand. You know what produce this effect on me: the size and the android OS version. A 5 incher, though utterly portable, may not cater to the demand of mainstream customers when most smartphones are already bestowed with a 4.3 inch touch panel and even a 7 inch tablet PC is barely satisfy some group of users who accentuate the video performance on a larger-sized screen. Android Eclair, thought not yet reaching the extent of being obsolete, is rarely brought on tablet PC at a time when android Froyo and Gingerbread are so prevailing.
What might be the best way to get a portable mobile device, like android tablet, connected with Internet? Yes, Wifi is good enough, but it is restricted to a very limited range. Only 3G can provide an Internet service unencumbered by space. Not every tablet PC comes with integrated 3G, so we still worship it much if the configuration is not so disappointing. If I am going to use a word to describe the specs of Wiipad, common might be the proper one, as common as the most ordinary android tablets we’ve seen.
It would be more normal if I review this 7 inch Rockchip 2818 Android 2.1 tablet (silver back color) first instead of the same type of android 2.1 Rockchip 2818 tablet pc (black back color) several days ago, since it is designed out earlier but comes out late. To differentiate these two tablets, I will refer to the Rockchip 2818 I review today as Black Rockchip 2818, and the Rockchip 2818 tablet pc I’ve reviewed as Silver. Of course, the two have much in common: both powered by Rockchip2818, running Android 2.1, displaying 7 inch screens and preinstalled many similar apps. However, the bezels are a little different. As for Black Rockchip 2818 tablet … Continue
Rockchip 2818 7’’ android tablet has finally come out.

I cannot specify why I draw a contrast between Huawei Ideos S7 and Walgreen Maylong M-150. Possibly, it isbecause they hit the tablet market at the same period of time. One belongs to the sort of medium price with common medium features, like Huawei Ideos S7 and ZTE V9 while the other has low price but mediocre features, such as Walgreen Maylong M-150 and Cherrypad America tablet. Of course, the yardsticks are those noted and expensive tablets, such as Advent Vega iPad and Samsung Galaxy. At any rate, tablet market is now boisterous with the competition clamor of various tablet pcs. The following is the contrast of specs between the two, Huawei S7and Maylong.
Tablets are various, and people’s preference for the features of tablets is even various. Still, there are common features that we want an android tablet have.
A long battery life comes first. You may not see eye to eye with me. Well, why should I rank battery life first? Tablet is a mobile internet device and is supposed to offer people the internet and other important services when people are outside and live an on-going life.

So next time, do not mock … Continue
Android tablet market is now ushering in a new comer, ZTC, who announced a ZTC Light V9 android-based tablet. When it comes to new tablets, I would always expect some tablet manufacturers, especially some major companies, shall innovate some unique features of tablets, even though just slight improvement or alteration. But to my disappointment, I could not find much that attracted my attention. These common applications, Android 2.1, Wifi, GPS, camera and bluetooth, simply do not enable ZTC V9 to stand out among the miscellaneous android tablets. Is it because that it become harder and harder for tablet designers to come up with new applications on tablets? A bottle-neck for android tablets?
As a … Continue
