Review Hannspree is primarily known for its somewhat gimmicky range of TVs and monitors – if you ever need a TV embedded in the stomach of a cuddly toy then Hannspree has just the thing for you. Its move into the tablet PC market was therefore rather unexpected. However the new Hannspad actually turns out to be quite a pleasant surprise.

Surprise arrival: Hannspree's Hannspad

The Hannspad is only available in a single configuration. Priced at £250, it has a 10.1 inch, capacitive touch-screen display – slightly larger than the 9.7in screen of the iPad, but the key difference here is that the 1024 x 600 resolution of the Hannspad gives it a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio rather than the 4:3 of the iPad. That makes it about ¾in narrower and taller than the iPad. It’s a little thicker and heavier too, but still quite comfortable to hold and carry around with you.

Interfacing options

There’s a fixed 16GB of internal storage, but the tablet does have a micro-SD card slot that will allow you to add another 32GB, if required. The operating system is Android 2.2, powered by a 1GHz dual-core ARM A9 processor.

The rear speaker is certainly bass light

Other hardware features include a USB port for file transfer, mini-HDMI, headphone jack and built-in microphone. The Hannspad includes 802.11n wifi and Bluetooth networking, but there’s no 3G and no camera either – although, personally, I didn’t miss either of those features.
