Good for Internet Surfing & Media Player
By Rick D
from Atlanta, Ga.
Comments about eLocity A7 Touchscreen 7-Inch Android 2.2 Tablet (Black):
Very fast processing unit and great for surfing the internet. I was quite impressed with how fast it processes. Very good quality look and feel. This was my first experience with Adroid Operating Systems but using this unit was pretty easy to pick up. Buttons and accessories are placed well and convenient on the unit. The 7" screen(actually it is 6 x 3.5")in size appears to me to be adequate and and the actual quality & resolution is good but for me I have discovered that the larger screens in the 8- 10" sizes are most optimal. The touch screen is quite responsive (a little too responsive at times)and takes a little getting use to with the zoom in & out and scrolling features. If you have big fingers like me then you will be zooming out allot.Downloading and running applications are when you run into problems with this unit. Clearly there were remaining bugs & issues to be worked out with the Android 2.2 operating system and I doubt if there will be any further improvements as Droid 3.0 is already out. I am only moderately techno so I do not like multiple techno issues and you will have them in this unit. I travel a lot and really need a tablet that can run skype. Although it is advertised to run skpye and has a front facing camera this unit does not support skype and that was dissapointing as well a making the camera useless. The battery life is relatively short(about 2hrs)and there is no USB Re-Charging even though you have a USB port. That was also really diappointing. The start up(from off)is quite slow for such a fast processing unit. You cannot access the Droid Apps Market with this unit but you do have access to Droid Apps via Getjar. It is not the same as the Droid Market and does not have as many apps.I also have trouble with this unit when replying to emails in my Gmail account. The message body is very difficult to type in and often would not allow me to type in the message body and thus I was never able to reply to any email with a return message.I had very little luck with Elocity Customer service and found them to be quick to respond to your question but very general and unhelpful in the responce to technical problems with the unit.Overall I think for the price (I paid [$]) this is a great unit for internet surfing, media player and e-reading but does not messure up in most other areas. If you are very Techno savy then at a much lower price than Ipads or Moto-Xoom you can deal with the issues of this unit and it will be a great buy. If you are not techno savy then you are like me and need a fully funtional unit that can run Apps with few issues so you'd be better off spending the extra money and getting the more advanced units with Droid 3.0 or the "Un-Flash-able" Ipads. I'm returning this unit as it does not meet my needs (what a shame as I also have a great leather case for it with a buit-in keyboard).I would not have purchased it if I had known despite the advertising of Video Chatting it does not suppport Skype and the emaill issues in my Gmail account doomed this unit with me. I have stepped up to the new Motorola Xoom and it is a fantastic powerful multipurpose unit and meets all of my needs. Of coarse I paid much more for it but it was well worth it. It has yet to fail in anything I was not able to do with the Elocity A7 ad gives me so much more capability and functions.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
