    A quick review…

    Okay, I’ve had the tablet a week now and am extremely pleased with it.

    I paid £159.99 from here. They charged me £11.99 to ship to Cyprus by FEDEX and it arrived in three days. I’m told this was a bit of a cock up at their end and the shipping cost should have been £30. Perhaps a point to negotiate on.

    I also bought a Neoprene sleeve case (£1.88) and a HDMI Mini cable (£5.99). All shipped at the same time and well packed.

    The device comes with a Chinese charger and local adapter. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it clear that we use the UK system over here so it was shipped with a ‘Continental’ 2-pin adapter. Luckily I had a multi-adapter in the house so it was no problem.

    One thing of note is that the device is powered by two 3.7V (I think) batteries and the charger is 12V @ 2A. You cannot charge this device via USB.

    Separately, I have bought a SanDisk MicroSDHC 32GB Memory Card for £13.84 + shipping (£19) although I see the price of this is now £17.49.

    The general specification of the tablet is as follows: -

    Model Window N101 version 2
    Operating System 4.1.1
    Display 10.1 inch IPS Capacitive screen
    Resolution 1280 x 752 px
    CPU Cortex-A9 dual-core 1.6GHz
    GPU Mali 400
    RAM 1GB DDR3
    ROM 32GB
    Camera Dual cameras, front & back 2.0Mp

    You can get the full spec on the DidoBuy site or elsewhere.

    I was asked if I wanted the metal or the plastic back – both are the same price. I chose the plastic as I had heard that WiFi performance was better with it.

    So, to the device.

    The display is absolutely stunning.

    The device is extremely fast and responsive.

    The battery seems to last a long time – I haven’t done a definitive test yet but I’m not constantly looking towards the charger – I’d guess at least five hours continual use and all day using it on and off.

    The sound is good – it only has a single speaker at the rear of the device but it is loud and clear. In fact it can be a little too loud for people sitting in front of you. Sounds through the 3½” output is absolutely stunning – even when using the cheap (branded) earphones that come with it.

    So, so far I have copied a load of movies, music and pictures to the Micro SD card and transferred them to the device. I’ve also connected it to my PC via USB and transferred the same. I can also stream files from my NAS to it…

    Everything so far has worked perfectly.

    I’ve downloaded a few apps from the store including Firefox which synchronised quite happily with my desktop copy.

    I’ve got a cheap (EnGenius) router in the kitchen. I can get a good signal from it throughout the house including the bedrooms upstairs and my office in the basement – which is quite good considering the amount of concrete and rebar between the two.

    Overall, I am really happy with it – a great purchase.

    Happy to answer any additional questions regarding it.

    Do you have a multitouch issue? I bought mine from Didobuy so I guess we have the same batch - Mine works fine apart from if I touch the bottom left of the touch screen, I cant touch he right side - If i touch the right side first though the left works fine!

    I hadn't noticed anything...

    I just tested it with the MultiTouch tester and it works fine...
