Pandigital Novel 7" Android Tablet & eReader Review

Earlier this year, Pandigital announced a firmware upgrade for its 7-inch Pandigital Novel line of products that transformed the eReaders into full Android tablets. Although the Pandigital Multimedia Novel 7-inch Android tablet doesn't have the same powerful processor or specs as some of the other tablets we've reviewed recently, its low price ($199.99 MSRP, street prices as low as $140 at the time of this writing), will certainly capture the attention of users who are looking for an eReader with added functionality for an affordable price...

Will this tablet or the eReader read pdf's that you scan?

I need one that reads work files made using my copier or Adobe Acrobat.

hello everybody! I am new here and hope I can offer constructive criticism and reviews on my experiences with everything that is IT.

I just received the Pandigital tablet as a Christmas gift. Although I have only had it for a week I must say that it is very user friendly and has many useful apps installed. Although not as complex as the more expensive models, it will do nicely for connecting to WiFi networks, browsing the web and reading e books, email or downloading files etc.

As you can see, it will do as a beginner tablet but if you really need more, it is worth spending the difference for a higher end tablet. The Pantage tablet will not support making calls, via Internet etc.

All in all, I am quite happy with the tablet as it serves my needs for the immediate future. Until I really need to upgrade to a better system, the Pantage tablet suits me just fine.

I just purchased the Pandigital 7" Novel for my daughter for Christmas and then realized there was the firmware update. I went to the Pandigiatl site and proceeded to download the update. The e-reader seemed to download the update and even daid "download comlete" but, nothing else happened. I was not prompted to open, run or any of those things. Also when i went to view the download, it said download unsuccessful "No application can be found to open this file." What do I do now? What am I doing wrong? Can someone help me?

I got a "Planet" for Xmas, trying to figure it out. Have one particular problem that I did NOT see listed in the forum: First apps wouldn't download at all, was going to return it. Then I was able to download some Slide Me apps and a few from Amazon App store. Then today I was able to download some more Slide Me apps, and some Amazon apps, but others just wouldn't work. They are android apps, simple ones like angry birds, pandora, weather channel, puss in boots... I was also unable to complete the Firmware update. Is this a defective tablet or is there something I can do to make this more dependable with downloads?

I just got one of these at Big Lots for $40 (normally $80) because it was missing the cable to connect it to a computer. I bought it because I knew I had several such cables at home. So far it's been pretty good. I haven't had a tablet before and don't even have a smart phone so it was all new to me. I have had some problems with the apps I've downloaded from their store not running and have noted that the touch screen is not that sensitive. The stylus helps that considerably and as far as apps go I just keep trying and deleting them until I find stuff I like that works. For $40 I can't complain, it's light and the battery lasts pretty much most of the day. I love the NOOK bookstore and have no problems downloading and accessing the books I like. I can even read and listen to music at the same time. I totally recommend this if you want to try a tablet for a reasonable price, and see if it's something you will use and enjoy.

This novel is terrific. Playing games is easy with downloads from amazon ( digital games) and freewarelovers.com

I can read and listen to my pandora stations. Also a download. aslo emails too. My friend spent 200.+ dollars and all she can do is read. I spent 150 and Look at all I can do. I find Pandigital ees exceptional if you ahve a problem .

That just randomly happens sometimes... 
I've learned that if you post on articles through the forum, you can click back and your content will still be there... or I copy my comments before I click submit just as precaution.

I know that hassle sucks but it's better than risking typing away and losing everything you'd want to say, and ending up raging and not commenting at all like I have a couple times haha

It probably had an error because this post is 15 months old and nearing the Mayan end of days.

I have this pdn ereader in white and I love it! I have downloaded many aps to play cards. They were all FREE.

It only has a 2.0 android that's my only complaint. so I haven't been able to watch movies it says you can. Or I don't know how to figure that out.
