Not an iPad, but who cares? 11/29/2012
Absolutely brilliant screen. IPS is the way to go.
The price is fantastic, as well is the speed of the processor.
If you are comparing this to an iPad (which it looks almost identical to at first glance) there are ups and downs. It is lighter, but has a plastic back instead of a metal one. It has two cameras, front and back, but they are placed on the landscape edge rather than the portrait edge. It has usb (client and host) plugs (through included adapter), a mini-HDMI port, and an external micro-sd car slot.
In a lot of ways it is much better than an iPad, but in some minor ways the "it's not exactly the same," can be slightly annoying, if that kind of thing annoys you.
Bottom line: if you were to get your grandma a tablet for Christmas, get her this one, and your mom one as well, instead of buying a single iPad.
Somewhat slower than average touchscreen response combined with somewhat grippier screen equals harder to play games on. This does not detract from Netflix watching, internet browsing, and general use.
Hulu doesn't work, but this is Hulu's fault, not the tablet's fault.
It would be nice if the usb port were micro instead of mini, but it comes with the necessary cables.
