No longer listed on there website and no longer in stock anywhere it seems.
Don't rely on the website, go in store.
As stated, the two JB HiFi's in my area both have N10's in stock.
My dad is getting the Pipo and next hear plans to update his PC to something decent.
Anyone bought a Target Pendo Tablet.
Screen res seems to be the limiting quality factor (other than actual build quality), only looking for something to have in the esky and use at work/in the truck.
Pendo Pad 7” 8GB Quad Core Tablet
I looked at one of those. I'm after a really basic tablet just for streaming between our file/media server and Bluetooth Audio. I can't find any reference that they have bluetooth, though (which is something that I wouldn't have thought was optional in this day and all)....
Scratch that - it's in the description - Duh.
Figure here ius the best place to ask.
I am looking for a cheap and shit android tablet. Preferably around the 9" screen size mark (or bigger, dont really wanna go much smaller than that).
Gotta be able to play clash of clans smoothly!
If it can play shit over Plex nicely as well that would always be a bonus!
Apart from that wouldnt use it for too much more!
Oh and less than $100...is this a realistic request?
EDIT: Something like this? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/9-8GB-Go...21390970633?pt=AU_Tablets&hash=item338bee1f09
I dunno....is it likely to be fake at this sorta price point?
Well, I got one of the quad core Pendo 7" pads..
They (yes, THEY) were absolute and utter shite. The first one had completely stuffed WiFi, so I walked back over the road (I live opposite a shopping center!) and swapped it out for another one. That one worked, but would kill and restart the Wifi and Bluetooth connections, randomly, and simultaneously. spectacularly useless for media streaming!
So, Back over the road again, and I got a refund.
The main fault I could take with the screen was that it was very, very sensitive to vertical viewing angle. The resolution itself was tolerable, and it actually ran relatively quickly.
I ended up buying a basic dual-core 7" Samsung tablet, which worked perfectly straight out of the box. The setup I ended up with was HERE, and it's just fucking awesome! It's the setup I've been dreaming of for years. (well, I have funny dreams!) I can't get over how great that tiny tiny speaker actually sounds.. Broad frequency response clean untainted sound and solid bass are not words one would normally ascribe to something all of 2" high (and battery powered!)
But as for the quad-core PendoPad - I'll pass.
Hahaha. Oh man. I just got a pendo-pad pad 7 quad core given to me. Lol
So far so good. Technically I'm not paying for it. I'm paying for the 1gb of data I get from dodo (mother got it but got a better deal from Telstra for a different one)
For 10 a month I'm getting the pad plus the data. I thought it was well worth it, since I was buying extra data to use while out, and I wanted a tab I could use with WiFi.
My mother had the tablet for two weeks before getting a better one. Didn't experience any issues.
Decent WiFi reception, hdmi output works well. Res is quite low but I'm finding it tolerable as well. Haha all in all for the cost of data I'd be getting anyway. I'm happy
Grabbed one myself a couple of weeks ago to replace my Dropad A8X, for $70 its actually not too bad. It has GPS and Bluetooth which is a pain in the ass to find in cheap tablets. Just wish It had an aluminium shell like my Dropad.
Works well for me in the car for music+maps+navigation.
Yeah its not bad for a cheapo. I was surprised it was a quad core. Lol
But alas, I've already replaced it with a tab 3 8.0 that'll be here in 3-5 days.
While I didn't really mind the low screen quality, it does suck.
We got one of the pendo 7" quad cores 6 months ago for our boy. They were on $70 special at coles and I couldnt believe the price at the time. It's obviously a lot lower build quality and screen performance than a big name branded tablet, but as a cheapie for the kids it's working quite well and the performance is excellent.
I only got one to test initially and by time I realised they were decent the price had gone up. If I'd known in advance I would have bought a couple more for my home automation system.
What are the cheapie tablets like for watching movies on?
Well, the pendo wouldn't be too good. Playing wise it'd do it fine. Quality though it'd be disappointing.
It wouldn't stutter at all, but the screen is only 1024*600 or something. Picture quality wouldn't be high...
Ok, I was wrong. I just tried to play a remastered copy of dragon ball z, only a 50mb file. Audio was fine. Video was extremely stuttered, but I didn't use any good video player...
One of these vs yum cha cheapo?
I need a Cheapie for a couple of apps (weather apps) but mostly using it as a XBMC remote. Needs to be ~7-10 inch preferably under $100. Any suggestions?
Get the pendo pad 7 inch. Will work fine for that and currently on sale for $89
So what's a good piece of crap these days?
Coles are selling the 7inch Pendo Pad for $39 at the moment.
Sale ends tonight. Picked one up myself to try out.
