Summary: Overall, the HCL ME Tablet X1 is an average performer when compared to the competition in the same price range. The lack of the Google Play store is the biggest downer of this device. The lack of Bluetooth and a SIM card slot too is missed, as these are some of the features offered by the competition such as the Reliance 3G tab and the Beetle Magiq. The 1080p MP4 playback was smooth and games like Angry Birds Rio ran smoothly on the device.
Pros: Good build, 1GHz processor, 1080p MP4 playback, Support for 3G USB dongles, Capacitive touchscreen
Cons: No Google Play Store, No rear-facing camera, Browser crashed on us frequently, Soft speakers, No Bluetooth, No SIM card slot
