Pandigital SuperNova Review

 

At $229, the Pandigital SuperNova improves on some of the problem points of the Nova. However, the addition of a capacitive screen, improved battery life, and cameras with more megapixels isn't enough to make the SuperNova a viable competitor to the...

Affordable, Responsive capacitive touchscreen, Decent performance

Limited app selection, Unattractive design, Cheap build quality

Pandigital SuperNova

 

Though priced to compete, the Pandigital SuperNova lacks the performance and features to seal the deal.

The Pandigital SuperNova tablet is light, smooth, and comfortable to hold. It includes a Micro-HDMI slot and two cameras

The tablet's screen is dim and low-resolution with narrow viewing angles. There's no native access to the Android Market and the build quality feels plasticky and toylike

Pandigital SuperNova

 

A thick, blocky device made of black plastic, the SuperNova tablet's casing feels flimsy. It's 6.1 by 8.4 by .4 inches and just over a pound in weight. A bigger problem: This is the worst capacitive touch screen I've ever seen. At least it's...

Hacker-friendly. Outputs well to TVs. Lots of features for the price

Cheap build. Abysmal screen. No Google services

The Pandigital SuperNova will be a fine tablet for Android geeks to hack, but average buyers should look for a tablet with a better screen.

Pandigital SuperNova

 

In the months before we wrote this review, we looked at two of Pandigital's tablets: the $159 Star and the $189 Nova, two models with 7-inch screens. And aside from their entry-level prices, we found very little to excite us about either one. Part of...

Entry-level price ; Strong performance

No support for Android Market ; Only 4GB RAM ; Cheap-feeling plastic construction

This low-cost tablet performs well, but it runs an outdated version of Android and doesn't support the Android Market. Considering where features and pricing are going with competing tablets, this one may have a limited shelf life.

"Its very well worth every penny spent"

 

I would say a definite IPad killer. I would never spend 500 for a tablet. I bought this for more than half its price. Which does EXACTLY the same thing as an Ipad can do. Hello! Wifi settings awesome as it keeps previous setting memorized for easier...

I love all the available apps. I have installed Words with friends, Scanner radio, and much more. Great for Skype or Tango apps.

camera quality is fair, I personally would of enjoyed something better. and maybe the audio can be improved, but it does the job.

Consumer review by:

"Pass on this one...."

 

Pass on this one guys if you're waiting on the ICS update. Here's what I got back after emailing their customer service.

It's a tablet.

Terrible screen. Viewing angle is horrible.

"Customer No Service"

 

I was one of the unlucky ones who purchased a Pandigital e-reader that doesn't work. That happens, but what has happened since is ridiculous. One month after trying to to resolve the issue with Pandigital customer service I still have an e-reader that...

I'm sure I'd love it if it worked. It was cheap and has the features I wanted.

It won't download apps or allow me to read e-books. Basically it is defective and Pandigital customer service has been no help despite repeated phone conversations, emails and plenty of promises.

"Definitely worth the price."

 

Instructions for installing Android Market can be found all over the internet and that is the first thing I did when I took it out of the box. Much to my chagrin, many apps will not download because Android Market says they are not compatible with my...

This is the ONLY tablet in this price range with a 1gHz CPU, Bluetooth, and a capacative screen. It ships with a very stable version of Gingerbread and upgrade to ICS is coming this spring. It has run every app that I've installed on it.

Display is not very good for reading for long periods. If your primary need is an eReader get a Kobo Vox. I was hoping to tether it to my phone's GPS but can't because it does not support Mock Locations.

"This is an excellent tablet for the price!"

 

on a scale of 1-10, i would give this I-PAD killer (which it really is) a solid 8.

runs everything that i've thrown at it, it's quick and its very user friendly. runs gingerbread and i've had no hangups,stall outs, or bad episodes since i opened it up christmas eve. runs most excellently. and all the apps are free (so far)

none yet, but stay tuned.

"Love this new toy!"

 

I just purchased the Pandigital SuperNova yesterday at Future Shop in Canada for $179.00. This was a boxing day special and was $50.00 off the regular price. I came home and once I figured out what file I needed, I searched for it on Google, easily...

Does Skype perfectly and has two camera's, fairly fast, availability of Android apps. I hear that Amazon is about to allow Canadians access to their Android Market.

Sound is a bit low
