The solid build reassures you in the tablet's quality and even its substantial weight contributes to that feeling at first, but longer sessions (and we can imagine ourselves reading a book for hours) tend to tire the hand.

It has a strong quad core CPU, a greater than full HD IPS display, good speakers, expandable storage, USB host support and multi-window multi-tasking.
