I bought this Sylvania 7" Android tablet from ebay USA a few days ago. It's a good tablet hardware wise.

Specification:

Proccessor: Infotmic Imapx200, 1GHz

Display: 7", 800X480, Resistive touchscreen TFT

Memory: 256 MB RAM, 2GB internal flash, expandable upto 16GB through microsd card.

Connectors: 2 mini USB (one OTG and one Host), headphone, HDMI, charger port

Wi-Fi

Android 2.1

No access to Android market directly - can be installed following a hack. However, I sideloaded a lot of applications and that works without any problem.

Also Android 2.2 is being promised my the mfr for a long time but not yet released. Not clear whether they will release or not.

Battery is not so great - about 2 hours or so with medium usage.

Display and touchscreen (resistive) is good.

This unit is great as an ebook reader, media player and occasional browsing.

The unit is solidly build - not like cheap chinese ones. Very fast. The processor is best at this price point. Plays almost all video formats flawlessly. Have HDMI output (didn't tested as I don't have a HDMI cable). Plays hardware intensive games like Angry Bird flawlessly.

Here is the mfr website:

Digital Gadgets - Mini Tablet

Here are some reviews:

SYLVANIA SYNET7LP 7" Android OS 2.1 MID 1GHZ /HDMI Tablet

Sylvania SYNET7LP Work-In-Progress

What is included:

The tablet (ofcourse)

Original box and packings and papers

USB host cable

2.5mm to 3.5mm headphone converter

charger

It is working flawlessly - not a single scratch is there anywhere. Battery backup is about 2 hour as stated earlier.

Reason for selling :

I was looking for a Tegra 2 based Viewsonic G - but didn't find one in my budget and bought this one in desperation. Now one of my friend is coming from US and he will bring a G tab for me.

Also after using phones with capacitive touchscreen the resistive one is a bit hard to use for me.

Asking price: Rs. 6K+shipping at actual (I bought at 6.8K) or Rs. 6.5K shipped.

Price drop : 5K +shipping



Will provide 3 days testing warranty.

UPDATE regarding battery life:

Battery lasted more than 2 hours (2 hours 10min) with 15% battery left with the following:

brightness : about 60%

Wifi - 100% on

email checking on the background : on

a little bit of browsing

playing a 720p mkv movie file (played it for about 1 and 1/2 hours)

installing a few applications

a few reboot in between.

Will check the battery life again with only the 720p mkv file playing and update this thread.
