Piece of crap!

 

I know this is not an Ipad and was not expecting it to be. I just wanted something to keep next to the bed to get email, check Facebook, and watch Youtube video's on something larger than my IPhone.. This thing made it almost impossible to do anything....

NONE. Not worth it if it was even $20.00

Do not mistake this with an Archos. This is a cheaper made cousin made by a Chinese subsidiary of Archos. Slow as ****! Resistive touch screen is the worst I have used, even after numerous calibrations. Could not type text properly at all. Sound is so lo

Just a poor product.

 

Hoping now to send it back to Amazon.

None at all

At 3 days old & having charging and battery issues. Tried twice to get tech support and got no replies to my emails. There support site they would respond within two bussiness days. I am still waiting after 3 weeks

Perfect gizmo for the older crowd

 

I bought this device for my mother to use at her craft shows with the Square app and dongle, since she doesn\'t want a smart phone. It works just as well since it\'s running off of Gingerbread, but would have much preferred it to come with Honeycomb....
