Leader International offers Impression 10 tablet device

by



Tablets are dime a dozen these days, and with so many different kinds of examples to look at, it can be kind of hard to arrive at a purchase decision. Do you settle for something from Cupertino, or with the myriad of Android-powered tablets out there, is something else more suitable? How about the BlackBerry PlayBook? So many questions, and Leader International intends to provide an answer in the form of their Impression 10.

Also known as the I10, the Impression 10 will retail for $349.99, but don’t be fooled by the budget-centric price tag as the I10 is said to have raised the bar for that particular category by quite a margin, with the kind of innards it carries. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that it runs on the Android operating system either, now we just have to wait for Leader International to make sure that future software updates will arrive on time to remain updated at all times.

The I10 will come with 9.7″ capacitive widescreen IPS (In Plane Switching) display which is capable of delivering brilliant color at 1024 x 768 resolution, not to mention wide viewing angles which your eyes will appreciate. Apart from that, there is the powerful and energy-efficient 1GHz Samsung processor which runs on Android 2.2 Froyo with Flash 10.1 support, letting you enjoy maximum performance including functions such as the streaming and playback of high-definition videos.

With that kind of hardware and software, you can be sure that the I10 is somewhere at the top of the budget tablet food chain. Other hardware specifications include a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) and Bluetooth connectivity, 4GB of flash memory that can be expanded to 32GB, a G-sensor, USB 2.0 (one mini and two standard ports), a 2-megapixel camera, stereo output and an HDMI port.

All units will come pre-loaded with a bunch of third party applications, and fret not – there is plenty of room for more. Would you consider this as part of your tablet purchase if you’re currently looking at the moment?

I have this devise and find it a beautiful tablet but the functions are not intuitive and I have had many problems with it. The directions are terrible and do not match the functionality of the unit. The loading of pictures was very awkward and my e-mail with the new yahoo has stopped allowing me to send new e-mails or responses to old ones. If anyone has any answers for these issues I would love to hear from you.

Directions are terrible. I cannot get the SD card in the slot. Directions say insert and then press Mount card. I can’t get it in. Also the USB. Anyone had an issue with this?

So far, the IMpression 10 tablet is a real dissapointment. This tablet is just too expensive for doing near nothing but play silly games and accessing the Internet.

The movie quality is poor when you go through a process of downloading and placing it into the cardslot. More than half the apps require some out-of-pocket moneys to use, and the other percent are aimless and mostly useless.

I think the intent was there but the capabilities will probably place this tablet on eBay for less than $100 within a year, if it’s not already there.

I ordered the Impressions 10in. Tablet from HSN on 12-03-11 received it on 12-10-11. From the very beginning I had difficulties connecting to the internet. I have 2-Wire from AT&T and its one of the best internet connections. I called Leader International Inc. several times to fix the problem no luck even though it said I had a connection it would connect for a short period of time then drop. Finally I had to send it to Leader under my 1 year warranty paying $20 to send it through UPS which I felt was ridiculous because it was a brand new out the box and they should of payed for the shipping to and fro. I received another one 12-30-11 and guess what still no connection also it has lines down the side where the screen of the tablet should be centered it breaks up the picture or what ever you click on the front of the tablet. Called them again today 1-3-12 reset it back to factory and still the same problem. Im done ITS GOTTA GO! I wouldnt of kept it anyway because Im not paying $350 and the screen has lines in it. So back to HSN it goes before 1-31-12 to get my money back.

Got the tablet as a surprise xmas gift. Pretty happy so far with the multi-touch and flash player. I’ve watched a few shows streaming, not as good as my PC but pretty decent. You can download Amazon app store which is better than slideme. Only gripes are the website claims .Avi support which is not true, and the firmware update intstructions that led me to the website which then tells me it’s not ready yet but will be released in DEC ’11, and it’s not JAN ’12 with no update.

I put in the correct WiFi code & it won’t sign on to the browser. I even reset of back to factory settings & it still won’t work. Haven’t been able to use it for months. Pretty upset.
