Hannspree Hannspad 10.1in Android tablet

Finger flickin' good

Basic principles

The built-in speaker sounds a bit tinny, but the headphone output is loud enough if you want to listen to music or watch films on a train or plane. The eight-hour battery life is certainly more than adequate, even if it’s not a match for the 10-hour iPad. However, the Hannspad’s Flash support meant that I could watch films on-line with my LoveFilm account – something that I still can’t do with my far more expensive iPad.

Decent spec, decent price too

Verdict

It lacks the polish of the iPad, but for just £250, the Hannspad is a very respectable entry-level tablet device. It may be missing frills such as a camera and 3G connectivity, but it gets all the basics right and is well worth considering if you don’t want to fork out £400 or more for an iPad, Xoom or Galaxy tablet. ®
