User Reviews 1 User Reviews I found the tablet has an 8-inch display, resembling a photo frame. It stands out with an 800x600-pixel touch-sensitive screen. The back features a stand and a unique area to hold the power cable neatly. There's also a reset button and a spot that looks like it could hold a stylus, but it's actually for the power cable.
