Very Decent Indeed 01/08/2014
+ A "larger" screen (i.e., not the normal 7-inch); it's funny how a 1/7 increase gives such a larger viewing area.
+ Higher resolultion; after all, the only reason anyone every bought a tablet was for the screen, and this is fairly high-resolution.
+ Unblemished Android; Dell hasn't given this version any bloatware or new GUI elements I can find.
+ Boatloads of RAM; at 2GB, absolutely great for this price-band.
- A weak audio-out signal means that you actually get worse audio by using external (battery-powered) speakers than the internal speaker.
- Root is unavailable; that this is an x86 system, and that the legal status of "rooting" tablets is really rather unfriendly at the moment, means that I wouldn't be able to find any convenient root-kits as for (say) a Motorola smartphone. Not that I looked, of course!
- No Flash; being an un-rooted Android device, it doesn't have Adobe Flash-player, which means that things like Amzn. Prm. Inst. Vid. are unavailable to me.
All in all, a thoroughly decent little tablet.
It's consistently been quite "snappy" -- a happy combination of 2GB of RAM and a dual-core x86 processor.
Coupled with Wireless-N Wifi adapter and a nicely-clear display, it makes watching Netflix &c. a breeze.
