ANDROID VIA WM8650 2GB, Wi-Fi, 7in – Silver Review
The device arrived new and loaded with cool things to tinker around. It is an addition to my Kindle Fire. The Android has a keyboard that is easily accessed, used, and is attached to a very sturdy and nice leather case. Two pointer pens are included along with a USB/DSL attachment needed to operate the keyboard. It would be better if this was a part of the system itself, but beggars can’t be choosers. The Wi-Fi worked flawlessly. There is a small camera built in for taking photos or video of yourself, but none on the opposite side. I still haven’t figured out what program to use for face time or conferencing, but I will soon. I did have some trouble learning the new system and getting the time and date format, and place to change correctly, but after a few hours, I was working around the new toy and making sense of all the new things I can do that I can’t do with other gadgets I have. I still carry my Kindle Fire with the Droid. Both are a good combination for what I do. I also have a netbook computer that I carry in my bag as well. The three of these combined complete my needs for computer, reading, contract making and signing, calendar needs, email, and conference calling. The battery life of the Droid has a very low rating and is in need of constant recharge. The storage space is limited, but a 32-gigabyte SD card fixed that problem. There are also the options for Drop Box and iCloud services if you have those accounts. I went to the APPS pages and downloaded a few apps such as a virus protection for the Droid, and it works nicely. The screen is brilliant and has a very good resolution with pixel rating in my opinion. Buttons are easily accessible for on/off and other function buttons for quick access to programs. This device also allows hot buttons to access my favorite programs quickly and effortlessly. Over all I give the ANDROID VIA WM8650 2GB, Wi-Fi, 7in – Silver a four star rating.

The screen is brilliant and has a very good resolution with pixel rating in my opinion, but the screen is harder to press than a capacitative screen. The stylus included was a big help. Buttons are easily accessible for on/off and other function buttons for quick access to programs. Navigating the desktop and surfing the internet were a breeze. The only qualm about this is that Netflix does not work. I read reviews about it, and the Netflix app didn't work for a lot of Android users, so at least I didn't feel alone. I sold the tablet because of that. For the tablet itself though I give it a four star rating.
I purchased this tablet for my 5 year old for Chirstmas so that she could use all the great Android educational apps out there. My seller had a 30 day exchange policy which I ended up using to get a better quality tablet with a capacitive touch screen instead of the resistive touch screen which this unit has.
While this item did work - it was not very responsive and was incredibly slow - somthing which my seller warned me about ahead of time when I contacted him about the initial purchase. I think that with the meagar 256k RAM it is simply underpowered. The unit itself felt fairly good in the hand - but the unit I exchaged it for was a bit heavier feeling for a good solid make. My seller had a rooted version with the real American Android market - not the cheap China market. I did research this quite extensively before purchasing.
Overall - if you don't mind slow and resitive touch screens - go for this unit - but for the extra $65 - I got a much faster capacitive touch screen model with 512 RAM and more storage. No matter what unit you get - get a square trade warrenty - it's worth it in the end for your peace of mind.
I purchased mine through Dealz_Central and they were wonderful to work with. Even though this unit was not what I wanted - the one I replaced it with was awesome.
The unit I replace it with was a ZT180 Upad ($145 at the time) with capacitive screen and the cortex A9 processor - 512 RAm and 2GB storage (expandable through the micro SC card slot). My daughter and her father have played with it non-stop since Christmas day (10 days ago now) and there have been not glitches.
I would never buy from a company based in China again.I purchased two tablets for Christmas in November.When the gifts were opened to be used we found out they were pirated devices which did not work.All of the Android tiles were wallpaper only.When I called the phone number supplied,there was no answer,just ringing.This is the 2nd bad experience I had ordering from a company based in China.From now on I'll pay a higher price from a reputible company Based in the U.S.A.
Battery life is very low, barely over an hour. Touch screen you have to push very hard on to get it to work. product doesn't work out of the box with the USA android marketplace. There are lots of these around, and good communities of hackers available for them, so ultimatly you can get them working fairly well. If your a tinkerer that doesn't mind replacing the firmware on the device, then your gonna let your kids play with it, it would be ok. But for my own personal use, it is WAY to slow. That said, my 7 year old LOVES IT.
