Hard on the heels of Samsung's Galaxy Tab comes the S7 from Chinese manufacturer Huawei, an Android tablet that aims to tread the line between the pricey Galaxy and the wretched crop of £99 devices that you can find on the shelves of Netto and Asda.

Someone want to let them know

that Dolphin HD IS the standard Android browser... In the same way that most other browsers on Android are just Webkit skins over the built in OS Webkit engine.

Only Opera offers a truely independant rendering backend. And it's coming with a Tablet-friendly 10.5 Flash enabled version very soon...

Advent Vega review asap please

£30 cheaper than this thing and with a 10.1" Capacitive screen. Ok so 3g is missing but it looks like a much better bet than this. If only there was a 7" Vega I would have leapt at it.

Prefer the Archos 70

Think I'd prefer an Archos 70 with Android 2.2. 300 grammes for the 8Gb version or 400g for the 250Mb hard drive version - still lighter than this hefty creature! No 3G but you can tether via blue-tooth to your smart phone which is better for me anyway. Faster processor in the Archos and 3d accelerator too. And cheaper!

Why?

I can't see the point of a 7" tablet which has the same resolution as a phone, unless you have poor eyesight and require larger text. Without additional pixels to enable you to get more information on screen, why not get one of any number of Andriod phones subsidised by the networks?

You can put Apps on to SD as my Android 2.1 supports APPS2SD. You're out of date...

Price segment

Your marking should, partly at any rate, reflect what can be expected within the price segment concerned. I would argue that this piece of kit deserves better than 70% _within its price segment_. Otherwise a most informative and fair review.

Same size/resolution as Samsung Q1 Tablet PC

Which is the PC on which I'm writing this, with Fitaly on-screen keyboard. The Q1 isn't a machine for 2011, however - although they might sell you the later model...

I thought the Galaxy Tab was dropped to £400. But this baby is still vastly cheaper.

On the other hand, the last computer I bought from Expansys didn't know what a £ was. A good bargain however, until I dropped it really really hard. But aren't they a sort of remainder bin, in some respects? And with Android you're more likely to be stuck with what you're given, even without that consideration?

"You can put Apps on to SD as my Android 2.1 supports APPS2SD"

but surely only if the device has been rooted?

meh!

What a load of garbage, why would anyone buy this?

I posted this message from my HSDPA linked (t-mobile 6 months internet for £20 sim) Sammy Tab, £399 from PC World, not £549 like the ipad 3g!

Sammy Tab is a great Android device, as an ios user i picked the Tab over the ipad because of the size, connectivity and cost!

WTF?

errr...cos it's cheaper!

"What a load of garbage, why would anyone buy this?"

well, I suspect because it's £177.50 cheaper as off 11.30am on January 10th! No it's not as good as the Galaxy Tab but the review makes that clear.

galaxy tab much cheaper than that!

£530 ?? where have you been shopping?

the usual price is 449 - but if you look around you can easily get it for under 400 quid (with

no ties or any wierdness)

errr...cos it's cheaper!

So thats your sole justification... cost?

Who'd have thought it lesser functionality for less cost!

How about £125 for a TV licence, a jotter and a marker pen... you've got similar functionality, and reduced portability for less money!

Huawei tablet cameras

The writer has fallen into the same trap that so many others do....a "front-mounted" camera is not the same as a "front-facing" . Any normal camera is front-facing as that is the way we normally point a camera when taking pictures of things in front of us. However if you want to make video calls then you need a rear-facing camera which looks towards the holder of the device, this would be on the front of the device so is called "front-mounted" but quite obviously it does not face towards the front.....SIMPLES!
