    battery life drains if apps installed on the device.. requires internet synchronization or those that look for updates once every few minutes (weather widgets) and there is the 2G/3G connection which drains a lot of the battery@Samarjeet Singh

    My battery of tablet was faulty I complained and was sorted out now getting more than 12hrs standby. Their are few bugs like their is no enter option in notepad & it takes long time to copy any data from or to external sd card. I want to connect my pen drive to it. A special cable is available for Nokia N8 to read usb through data cable port any option for this tab. Overall satisfied with it.
