Pros

  • Aggressive price

  • 4G-capable on T-Mobile's network
  • Comfortable-to-hold contours

Cons

  • Colors lack vibrancy
  • Display shows pixelation in graphics and text

At A Glance

A pleasing, well-balanced industrial design and a value price can't outweigh this tablet's bugs at launch, or its poor display.
