Pandigital SuperNova Tablet Review
The Pandigital SuperNova comes with a starting price of $199.99. It is the sleek, light, and comfortable tablet that has entered the world of tablets. However, its plasticky feel and other not so good features lower down the ratings of this tablet. It has a Micro-HDMI slot and two cameras which is a good factor. Focusing on the bad points, the tablet features a dim and low-resolution screen with narrow viewing angles. In fact, the Pandigital Supernova fails to perform like the high end tablets launched in the market and does not boasts much impressive features.
Pandigital SuperNova Design :
This tablet has a dark-gray chassis and is set in a thin body which is measured at 0.5 inches deep. Overall, it’s an 8-inch tablet which is a little smaller than the Archos 80 G9. It fits well in hands and does not have any edgy and rugged corners. In fact, the chassis is smooth, light and thin. At the bottom, you’ll find its microSD card slot whereas; at the right headphone jack is available. Its left edge is adorned with the power connection port, Mini USB and Micro HDMI ports. On the top of the device, a power button and volume rocker makes the tablet complete. The SuperNova has a front facing camera adorned by two status lights. The bottom features four Android navigation buttons which are home, settings, back and search.
The Pandigital SuperNova supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n). The speakers of this device are loud but lack bass. In fact, the sound gets muffled when this device is laid down in a flat way. Besides, when it comes to processor, the SuperNova runs on a 1.06GHz Samsung S5PV210 Cortex CPU.
This device runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform, but is not a Google-certified device. Due to this, it does not boast Android Market. It has limited GetJar and Web-based Android app store. Well, you won’t be able to enjoy many apps like what you can through Android Market. The device has successfully received useful apps such as ES File Explorer that enables you to access your storage file system directly. In fact, it also has the Barnes & Noble e-reader, InTouch, news aggregator, and Office Suite.
Pandigital SuperNova Performance :
The SuperNova has an 8 inches capacitive touch screen with 800×600 pixel resolution. The screen gives narrow viewing angles and is dim. This leads to not so good results while playing games, accessing websites, watching movies and so on. Navigation is quick but when apps are opened such as gallery, noticeable lag can be observed. The camera gives grainy pictures and can be recorded up to 720p resolution.
