Since 1992. . . I have only owned desk tops. Then in 1996 got Windows.
I didn't even know that there were other OS besides Windows and Mac.
I needed something to get on the internet in case I ended up in the hospital or home in bed. So I began my search to find the least expensive item with a actual keyboard.
I ended up with:
Irulu 8GB 10.1" Android 4.2 tablet PC A9 dual Core Cameras w/keyboard HDMI Wifi.
Under $80 from Ebay.
The day I received it, I went to hades trying to figure it out :mad:
The letters (words) on the owner's manual are smaller than size of the words on a dime!

I have found out that Android is an OS
I was stunned. So if anyone of you think that you are able to handle this old lady. . . it would be much appreciated.

Affinity, easiest thing that I can tell you would be to google "Android 4.2 users guide, PDF". While you may not be able to find one on, your Irulu, you're surely be able to find one that will show how to get around with the Android. Local bookstores should also have generic Android guides that can definitely help you.
Be sure to check out the thread What is Android, here.. http://www.androidtablets.net/threads/what-is-android-back-to-basics.64104/

:eek: You replied so fast! :) Thank you.
I am printing the instructions out right now.
:eek: Oh no! I should have looked all through it and printed it in gray scale. It took all my black ink and the last 5 pages are blanks :D.
Every page has the screen in black = which I honestly appreciate seeing the screens to know what they are talking about.
Thank you so much for that link. I wish I cold have found it while running all over the universe looking for help.
I do see by reading a lot here . . . that people were so intelligent enough to have come here first before even purchasing one.

I'd like to ask you one more question.
Yesterday . . . somehow I found an area in the Android tablet that has this information:

Model # X10
Version 4.4.2
Kernal Version 3.4.o+
Build # fall-95702c-debug
4.4.2 KOT494 eng.intel.20140529.194306 releasekeys

If my Android is a 4.2 Jelly Bean. What is the 4.4.2 (that a Kit Kat has?)

Or do I need to find another place to ask this question?
Please advise

It appears that your tablet was upgraded to 4.4.2, KitKat. What that means it it's the latest version.
If you've found a decent manual, in PDF, you can add it to your tablet and read it through a book reader or a document reader.
There's a guide for a Samsung 10.2 inch tablet, that also helps explain different functions on tablets. Some of the controls would be different, but it's helpful.

Go for the Wi-Fi version.

When it appeared in Ebay. . . it was said it was new and to have never been out of the box.

When I received it. . . it looked as though it had never been out of the box.
How can it be upgraded? Do they do that at the plant/manufacturer place?
It all just puzzles me and I have always been a curious person that wants to know what makes things tick. ;)
I see now they have it listed $10 higher.
It also had someone's email on there where I found that information. (?)
Thank you again Pit Carver.

The first thing my Lenovo did, after I set it up, was to upgrade to JellyBean. It was an automatic upgrade.
It could have been made at the factory also, and the packaging and information hadn't been changed.

However it was upgraded, once you get the hang of it, tablets are a lot of fun. Enjoy...
