Review excerpt: This 7-inch Android tablet is designed to be of use to both kids and adults. It comes from Singapore-based Karuma, and is wrapped in a thin silicone cover for protection against drops that doubles as a flimsy kick-stand for watching movies. It is powered by a 1.2 Ghz processor with 8 GB of onboard RAM. A micro SD card provides an additional route for expansion. Slightly thinner than the Nabi, this tablet has fewer ports (there is no HTMI out). The tablet is both synced and charged through a flat micro USB port. Apps can be downloaded from standard Android stores — two  come pre-installed  — Soc.io and Applibs, but we found it hard to find anything child appropriate other than a free version of a St. Patrick’s Day-themed version of Angry Birds, in Chinese. Other apps, like the free Pac Man app would run, but only in a phone-sized screen orientation.
