This is a quick unboxing and review of HP's latest attempt at an Android tablet.
I can't say a whole lot of good things about this tablet. I was sorely disappointed in the overall build quality. The screen was almost rubbery to the touch and it appeared to be warped and separated on the edges. The screen was odd and had almost a glazed look to it. The back camera is decent, but the front camera is not even adequate for video conferencing, let alone the occasional "selfie". The specs are sub par for the price, in my opinion. I wouldn't spend more than $99 US for a tablet like this. I have seen off brand, generic tablets that are build better. I suppose the one saving grace is the stock Jelly Bean 4.1.1. For what you would spend on this tablet ($170 US), you should jump on a Nexus 7 or a Kindle Fire HD.
This thing is starting to make the HP Touchpad look like a great success.
These are my opinions, of course.

Good News, Everyone!
It appears that Hashcode has finally worked out enough bugs in CM10.1 for the Kindle Fire HD 7" and has released a build. I know many of your are anxious to get going with this, so I will be creating an Idiots Guide for this as quickly as I can.
Also, if you are interested, I have posted some photos of my pilgrimage to Google Headquarters in California. They are on Facebook, so feel free to LIKE my page while you are there. :)
I am attempting to demonstrate the NFC capabilities of the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 devices.
If you are interested in purchasing the same NFC tags that I used, go to:
Remember, the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 devices MUST uses NTAG203 compatible tags, whereas the Nexus 7 and many other devices can use the MIFARE tags.
