After I was given my Prestigo e reader for my birthday, I loved it so much that the Presigio brand is now a hit in our family. My daughter Dominique who is in her 1st year teaching bought the Prestigio 8″ Tablet, she was so thrilled with it that family members clubbed in to buy one for my 70 year old Mum too. Both are highly impressed with the product. Other than loading about 50 books on Mum’s before she returned to Durban I have not had much time to play on them. I asked Domi for a review and she has the following to say about hers:
* Use of android makes its usability fantastic and easy enough for my 70 year old gran to learn how to use.
* It comes with its own carry pouch to keep it safe at all times.
* The display is fantastic and crystal clear.
* It comes preloaded with 3 e readers so you can choose which one suits your preference.
* There are many additional educational games available on the Google Play Store, I even got a colouring in app for my 2year old sister to play with.
* Because the operating system is Android it syncs my Samsung phone with the tablet’s calendar without me doing anything once it has connected to the internet, therefore I never have to worry about forgetting any meetings.
* Video quality is excellent as it has an HD display.
* The camera is situated on the front and takes good photos for a tablet in my opinion.
* The MultiPad is also preloaded with a cloud application to store your data externally.
* The tablet comes with Office Suite 6 which allows you to create word, excel and powerpoint presentations which are supported by Microsoft Office.
* The only problem with Skype is that you need to plug in external headphones otherwise the person can hear you as the mic works but you can not hear them.
* The usb port on the device is a micro USB but this not a problem if you buy a usb adaptor which has a female end that you can plug your usb device into, this only cost me R45.
Domi has only had the MultiPad for a month and was devastated when she dropped it and cracked the screen but we were highly impressed with the after sales service supplied by the distributors.
