Hannspree Hannspad 10.1in Android tablet
Finger flickin' good
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.
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.

It certainly seems a bit crap...
Not forgetting that the Vega also has a camera for obligatory videoskyping goodness, in fact the only reason I don't have a Vega is because I now have my dearly beloved'd cast off iPad v1, unfortunately this still leaves me without a camera for skyping but then again I could always just use my N900 if it skype didn't crap out all the time ;-)
I'm a bit confused also by the score that this gets when The Vega was slapped for a couple of areas that the hanspree is also deficient in...
I fought Cherman vaz like Enklish vif a few letters changed fur Komik effect.
"Spreken zie deutsch"?
What a car crash. If that's supposed to be German, it's a hat-trick -- three words, each wrong -- and as a bonus one has two errors in one. If it's supposed to be something else (Dutch?) it's even worse.
How good is the screen?
Any better than that of the Vega?
Does it have Google Market or not? If not, how come it wasn't shouted at for not having it, like the Vega was?
Looks nice enough, though is £50 more than the Vega is currently priced at.
Don't forget the Vega scored a measly 65% - 80% would suggest that there are BIG improvements in this tab...
