Just some info for any one that is looking for a tablet this is noting like an Android tablet all this is good for is loading on move's and watching them on it.

yeah, seen those reviews too, mostly from the time of it's launch in 2008/2009, I also read where firmware upgrades have sorted out bugs.

They're okay for a movie/music jukebox. If you're travelling a lot it can be handy to fit a couple of hundred movies/episodes on a single device.

I had one about 2 years ago, my advice is keep your £69 quid.

"High Resolution"

That description would have been written in 2008 when the model launched.

800x480 on a 4.8" screen was certainly 'high resolution' at the time (iPod touch that year was 480x320).

Yeah I'd leave this one tbh. Had a go of one ages ago, and there really was nothing good to say about it. Maybe if it was 20 quid then yeah, it'd be good. But not at £70.

I know yeah, just mental looking back and thinking that that was high res!

I have the same resolution on my 4.3" android and I'm starting to get very jealous of the 4.7ish" HD screens around these days!
