The laptop replacement

This is my first tablet and it is really good. The only problem I find is that if you install many apps, have a lot of music or a lot of photos in the internal memory, it will lag. I have my memory at 3GB approximately and it runs smoothly. It is an awesome tablet and maybe rooted will run better.

It's a machine. Love it.

I've had my Infinity since around the middle of July and I couldn't be happier. The keyboard makes it perfect and easy to type on if you don't want to use touch typing. Integrates excellently with Polaris Office and Google Drive. The build quality is unprecedented and ridiculously lightweight as well. Wifi reception is excellent as opposed to the Prime because of the strip on the top. It really did help! Browsing could be smoother, but passes the day to day usage test. It's a multimedia machine, honestly. Google Play Music, Videos, Apps, etc. combined with Netflix and other services will give you endless hours of fun. The camera isn't great, so if you're looking to take pictures with your tablet (o_e) then I wouldn't recommend it. The UI with Jelly Bean and Project Butter is absolutely incredible. Speedy and quick in all tasks, I just love it. It's also a multitasking beast. Switching between tasks in quick, simple, and easy, and works smoothly with Android's awesome multitasking. Very easy to use writing papers with Google Drive, which I have done several times since school has started. Also great for book reading on the Kindle app in portrait mode! Text input is awesome thanks to either the touchscreen or the physical keyboard. The display is currently unprecedented by any other Android tablet out there. Super IPS+ Display? Oh, yes. Text is crisp, colors are bright and vivid, and it all seems natural. Another important point is the battery life, which does not fail to impress....

8 amazing hours with the Infinity
economist has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
After charging the Infinity for a whole 12 hours I put my hands on and here are the first impressions.
This is my first Android device, I am a Linux (Ubuntu) user in all my laptops (except the business laptop that has to be Windows because of some special software) and desktop and a Symbian user when it comes to mobiles. My immediate reaction to Android is that I see it as the future of OSs. While it is not the best thing when it comes to a combination of a "screen+mouse+keyboard", it is unbeatable when it comes to "touch screen" devices. I've used iphone a lot (I've spent with it 3 weeks on a trip to US when I've rented a phone) and Symbian of course and I've also tested the windows 8 in a laptop with a touch screen. IMHO nothing is equivalent to Android. The combination of usability, parametrization, user interface, openness, control over use and settings can not be found (again IMHO) in any other OS of a similar nature. And I'll stop here with Android to go to the Infinity. And I'll mention mostly the hardware issues since this is not a review of the Android ICS.
What I've liked from the hardware:
Actually I liked everything but some small things that I'll describe later. From my likes I want to highlight the following.
The screen is just amazing. Clear, crisp with impressive response. Fantastic viewing angles, extremely good brightness in daylight (and we are talking about the day light of Bangkok in a day with clear sky and 38 C), and perfect colour profile.
