CherryPad 7-Inch Android Tablet Video Review

CherryPad 7-Inch Android Tablet Video Review

The CherryPad is a 7-inch slate that comes preloaded with the Android 2.1 (aka Eclair) operating system and is driven by an 800MHz ARM11-based processor by Samsung backed by a meager 256MB of DDR2 system memory.  The device is also based on a resistive touch display, so it takes a bit of getting use to, if you've been working with devices like the iPhone or similar where capacitive touch displays are ubiquitous.  Journey on here with us in this quick-take video review of the CherryPad.  Just what does $188 buy you in an Android tablet?  You're about to find out...

Well we know my thoughts on 7 inch tablets, which is why when I can grab a more minle 4-4.3" smart phone with better hardware inside anyway.

Too bad the screen sucked so bad...  that's a pretty good price point for a device like this.

Could it be that the "warping screen" was actually the protective foil that you forgot to remove? Wink

Perhaps that's why the touch screen seemed so unresponsive! Wink

When you held the device at an angle, and poked the screen, it looked like you moved the protective foil that seemed to have a couple of bubbles in it.

Protective foils are commonly used when shipping LCDs to protect them from scratches. After opening the package, you can safely remove the foil, and you're ready to go! Smile

silur and Inspector... fear not. I promptly removed the existing protective foil upon unboxing the device. From there I actually examined the screen quite closely because it looked so thin and light that perhaps there was another level of protective film? Alas, peering into a corner edge of the screen I could see adhesive. No, this wasn't another protective film but the slightly cheesy screen itself. :) Oh well... I really wanted to like it, honest. It's not a total dealbreaker. I mean folks will get this just to root it with Froyo and other mods because it's so cheap but the average Joe will want more refinement, even in a sub $200 tablet.

I had thought about buying one of these, but now I'll wait to see if they improve them first.
