Chris Hardwick and Candace Bailey review the $400 device for its official Gadget Pr0n rating.

What You Need to Know

  • It feels pretty light, but it's still heavier than the iPad 2.
  • It runs on Android 3.0 and mostly has the same specs as other Android tablets.
  • The touch screen is just as responsive as we'd expect, which is good.
  • We've said it before and we'll say it again, Honeycomb is infinitely customizable, so you'll be able to add widgets, music players, picture galleries and a bunch of other stuff to your heart's content.
  • We think this is the slickest and most powerful version of Android yet.
  • We're happy to see that speed is consistent among all Android 3.0 tablets, so you'll pretty much have the same experience no matter which one you're using.
  • The 5 megapixel camera on the back takes pictures and video, but there's no flash, so things might get grainy
  • The front camera is 1.2 megapixels.
  • There’s an optional keyboard dock; it's a little wonky getting it into the dock, but once you do, it turns your tablet into a laptop.
  • The keyboard works great, as does the touchpad and you won't have to touch the screen when it's in the dock because you'll have a normal mouse cursor.
  • You also get 2 USB ports and an SD Card slot on the dock.

Price

  • The 16 GB version is only $400, and it has a Micro SD card slot, so you can expand the memory.
  • The $150 keyboard dock is fun, but you definitely don't need it.

Overall Rating

  • 5 Seals of Approval Out of 5 (How do we rate gadgets?)
  • If you're looking for an Android tablet, this is one to get, because it won't break the bank, and it'll do everything you need it to do.
