Visual Land Connect VL-879-8GB-BLK-ICS Features

Performance

Visual Land Connect VL-879-8GB-BLK-ICS supports a Cortex A8 1.2GHz processor which can handle most of the apps well but the 512MB DDR3 RAM may slow down things. If you are one of the power android user, you will not found the multitasking experience on this tablet to be smooth because of limited 512MB RAM. However, if you are looking for performing some basic stuff on this tablet, like web browsing, watching videos and little bit gaming(Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja etc.), this tablet can suffice your needs.

Touch Screen

The tablet has 7″ Capacitive Multi-Touch Screen which is responsive and supports finger gestures. For example, a simple swipe can be used to move between pictures or screens or a two-finger pinch can be used to zoom out on of an image, and vice versa. The native resolution of the screen is 800 x 480 pixels, which is good enough to display the images and pictures crisply, of course when looked from the distance. Overall, the touch screen is of good quality for low budget tablet.

Moreover, since, the tablet comes with 8GB of fixed internal storage space and an option to expand the storage space further upto 32GB via Micro SD card, it can easily be used to enjoy movies and videos. The apps like Netflix also works well.

    i bought one from Fry’s Electronics earlier this week. i downloaded the Google Play Store APK which worked fine at first. since then google plage crashed constantly. i uninstalled and tried installing different versions of the APK from several different sources, but same problem. i also installed the Google Play services APK from 1MobileMarket. still no luck getting the Play store to work, even after experimenting with various APK’s and such. but 1MobileMarket is pretty cool. i can find about 90-95% of the apps i have on my other android devices. i would give this mini tablet a hi rating. also i would suggest just finding the apps you want on other markets if you cant get play store to work.
