Summary: I bought it during the black friday lightning sale. It looks alot like a refurbished set instead. The screen protector was awfully scratched. The packing looks like it was previously opened and repacked. very disappointing... might as well buy a used set. Having said that the set seems to be working.
Summary: If Skype is important to you (and it was to me when I bought this), DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL! The product description states: "1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chats (fixed focus) for face-to-face chats on popular services such as Qik or Skype" which led me to believe that the front camera would work on Skype. It does not. Skype for Android requires 2.3 OS at least, so the rear camera works but not the front one on this model. BFDeal.
Summary: I bought the tablet for my 3 year old. I liked the operating system. She loved it everything about it, but a slight defect in the power cord kept her from taking it with her on a trip to Africa. If you're planning to buy one, just keep in mind that Dell's power cords are proprietory...meaning you have buy it directly from Dell. No instant gratification if there's no Dell retail outlet in your town.
Summary: I've been using this tablet primarily for a Sonos controller, e-mail/surfing, e-reader and Netflix for the past year. It has served me well for the price paid. I initially installed a pile of games and lots of other apps on it, but found that that the more I added, the slower this thing became. Boot up time is pathetically slow (two minutes or more), and it does crash at least a couple of times a week. I reset it to factory, and things have been better since.
Pros: -price point, -durability, -sim card slot, -SD card slot
Cons: -unstable and slow boot time with lot of apps installed, -battery life, -nav buttons on side are more hassle than help
