    It has the perfect size to read e-books and surf the web and it's great to watch your Full HD video of how they are meant to be seen. As long as the OS is Android 2.3, but with time it will be possible to upgrade to Android 4.0. Despite the lack of physical buttons, the tablet with its 510 grams turned out a bit heavier than its previous series of tablets.
