BeBook Live Review


BeBook is a company better known for its ereaders, but the lure of the tablet has proved too great. The BeBook Live is a low-cost Android slate, still proclaiming its ereader heritage but also hoping to earn itself a place as your browsing, multimedia...

As a potential iPad and Kindle rival, the BeBook Live falls short on both fronts. Battery life is weaker than either, while the display is arguable less comfortable for ebook use than an E Ink panel and is generally far less impressive than the IPS LCD...

What we've got going here is a look at what Chris Davies has in his hands right this second, a low-cost Android tablet from some folks that normally make ereaders, BeBook. What the folks at BeBook have produced for the world now is a ereader-sized...

BeBook Live review


BeBook have made a departure from their previous E Ink ebook readers and ventured into the world of the Android tablet. The BeBook Live is a 7-inch LCD tablet that comes along offering Android 2.2 (Froyo), so in many ways is typical of the cheaper end...

Android Market, good value for money, HDMI out

Android version doesn't make the most of the tablet space, built and materials aren't great, low quality screen size, battery life was surprisingly short

The BeBook Live betters some of the cheap devices we saw earlier in the year, but could well be surpassed soon by new devices. The core experience is good, but the performance befits its price

BeBook Live hands-on


A few compromises have been made to the BeBook Live to keep it affordable, but it could still prove a handy Android tablet. Here's hoping this 7-inch slate can give the Samsung Galaxy Tab a run for its money.

Affordable ; Capable processor ; Not too heavy ; HDMI output

Display could be better ; Android 2.2 is slightly dated ; No rear camera ; Screen's odd aspect ratio could be troublesome

BeBook Live review


The BeBook Live is a 7in Android 2.2 Froyo tablet that seeks to fill the gap between top-end premium devices and the slightly less glamorous but far more affordable mid-range market.

The BeBook Live Android 2.2 'Froyo' tablet is a fast and responsive 7in tablet that is light enough to take out and about and sufficiently good value that we can forgive it the limited screen resolution and general lack of polish. One of the better...
