So, the hardware is good. This thing looks identical to an iPad, has a really nice weight to it and a pretty excellent build quality. The capacitive screen is super responsive with all apps. The speakers aren't out of this world and if you hold the tablet landscape it sounds like you're wearing earphones where only one bud works, but I rarely use the built-in speakers, instead retreating to my headphones.
The software, Ice Cream Sandwich is a joy to use. The design is so slick and intuitive that after an hour or so you've worked out most of the kinks and can use the machine with very little difficulty (but the more time you spend exploring, the quicker you'll get and the more shortcuts you'll find). A couple of upgrades from Honeycomb make this thing ideal for multitasking.
The reason I think this particular model is so good is it allows you to do everything. It's got a lot of RAM, a zippy browser and some really cool built-in content. When I bought the tablet, I didn't really know what exactly I wanted it for, but since I've had it I've been watching documentaries/films online through the flash player (take that iPad), reading comics and books with pin-sharp detail, playing games and just generally socializing and the AlphaPad has managed everything I've thrown at it!
This thing has enough screen space, RAM and hard drive space to be perfect for just about any application you can think up for it.
And then you look at the price! I mean wow! For half the price of the new iPad (including customer and import stuff which you should consider when buying this product) this product excels.
