    Just last week I was slating Sanei for not combining all the high-tech hardware they’ve managed to engineer into their many tablets and now Aoson have come up with a solution. Easily the best tablet we’ve tested. Only thing it doesn’t have is GPS, but when you’ve got 3G anywhere who cares.

    For some reason it seems to function more smoothly than any other tablet despite have identical hardware to all the rest (RK3066, Mali400, 1GB DDR3). It feels great to hold, heavy enough to tell you it’s a quality product and it comes with a mock-leather travel case, which is nice.

    Also, they’ve managed to fit a standard USB port into the frame without it looking ridiculous. Even without the SIM card you would be able to surf the net with a keyboard still attached via the second USB, and with the SIM slot you could add a mouse or game controller or mass storage etc etc.

    The downsides... They aren’t that many. As I mentioned no GPS, iPlayer doesn’t work, some firmware please Aoson. The 7inch Aoson M71G we tested a few days ago was compatible, why isn’t this?

    The wifi is also weak, even next to our HomeHub it was only 2-3/4 bars full. We hypothesise this is due to the metal casing. However normally this would be a major concern but you have 3G support here so you’ll probably be on your network most of the time, unless you’re at home and near your wifi. Weak wifi is probably far more of a burden for those using clouds or hotspots etc.

    Anyway you can see I had no trouble downloading a bunch of apps (see pic) and you won’t notice a difference in speed, it’s only because the OS reports 3 bars that you’ll know so it could be a slight software issue in truth.

    Also, it’s only running ice cream sandwich, but it works really well so why fix what’s not broke. For people looking for a real alternative to the iPad this is it for the next few months.

    To find any real problem with this tablet it would need a proper user review for a good 2-3 weeks use I think; its breezed through all the hoops we have time to make it jump through.
