The Le Pan II 9.7″ tablet is the current offering from Le Pan. This company, which is little known in the United States, markets itself as a manufacturer of quality tablets, using the best technology has to offer and providing the finest experience at a reasonable cost.
Le Pan II 9.7″ tablet features a fast, dual-core processor, which uses the Android system and is geared for the person who enjoys gaming, video, the internet and wants it all in a fast multi-media package.
Down To The Basics
This tablet is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, is currently packaged with the Android 3.2 operating system and is upgradeable to the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It features a brushed aluminum case and an edge-to-edge glass surface covering a 9.7″ LCD-backlit IPS display.
The screen has a 1024×768 resolution that provides exceptional clarity, and the 4:3 ratios give an outstanding web-surfing experience to the user. Add to that the front-facing 2-megapixel camera and microphone and it is perfect for video chat, using the ultra-fast 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity.
The Le Pan II comes with 8 GB storage and supports a 32 GB Micro SD card. It also will provide up to six hours of video playback or Wi-Fi use with its long-lasting battery power. At 1.5 pounds, it is one of the lightest (9.7 and more inch) units in the marketplace and measures 9.29 x 7.44 x 0.48 inches to provide convenient, portable entertainment and connectivity.
The 1024×768 resolution and 9.7″ LCD screen make the Le Pan II super for gaming, with clear, crisp resolution. The Android system has thousands of games and apps to suit everyone’s taste, and with the expandable 32 GB of memory, there is room everything.
The high resolution also makes it perfect for watching videos. Again, that 32 GB of storage comes into play with room for hours of video entertainment.
The GPS is a feature many appreciate and Google Maps have voice-activated turn-by-turn directions. This device is capable of caching map data, so it can be used even when wireless internet is not available.
Customers Agree Le Pan II Is A Great Value
The majority of customers find the Le Pan II has all the features they are looking for in a tablet. Most find the Bluetooth works fine for connecting a keyboard and mouse, but there have been a few instances of problems maintaining the signal.
Video streaming through Amazon Prime has been warmly received, although there is an issue of Hulu recognizing it as a mobile device and not performing on the tablet. Conversely, NetFlix is reported to work well using the NetFlix app, as well as other streaming sites.
Overall, Le Pan’s latest entry in the tablet market gets good marks for speed, reliability, price, and performance. It is very reasonably priced and is jam-packed with features that even the most rabid enthusiast will appreciate.
