Huawei S7 - Returned it today
The Huawei S7 tablet Best Buy is carrying is a decent unit, just wasn't for me. It was close, though.
*Decent price at $299, should be about $249 compared to others
*Resistive screen was very responsive, enough to not really be annoying at all. Some things were better with a stylus such as hyperlinks.
*Built nice, sturdy.
*was able to put in my AT&T SIM card and manually set up the APN and have 3G data and make phone calls even though BB's price tag said WiFi only.
*speakers are nice and loud. made a hell of a speaker phone!!
*I thought the UI was nice enough I didn't install Launcher Pro
*typing was good on the resistive screen.
*Battery life of maybe 2 hours.
*WiFi would often not reconnect to same network after putting into standby and I'd have to turn WiFi off/on to get it to work again.
*can only charge with the AC adapter, USB does not charge it.
*I use the WiFi Tether on my Android phone and it *would not* see the wireless network even though dozens of other devices could including Windows laptops, iPads and iPhones.
I think six months from now the Android tablet market is going to explode with nice units.
