    Joe S, are you a travelling bookkeeper?

    No, sorry, Excel cannot be installed on this device. You could have used Google Docs’ spreadsheet (despite you not being interested in ‘WEB’) but that only works properly on Android 2.2, which this doesn’t have and likely never will.

    I can only suggest you buy a laptop.

    Also, you should take a second look at ‘WEB’. It’s what all the cool kids are into. That and drugs. And seeing how far they have to go in before they get banned from commenting on Eurodroid.

  5. Sorry to say I bought one of thes ethe other day.
    lamentably slow, ‘cos it’s running Android 2.1 it isn’t instaled with marketplace – if you can see a website which provides APK files you can download them, else you have to put them onto micro-sd memory.

    Seems to work marginally better with ‘Dolphin’ browser, but I have pros running Fash 10, so no iPlayer etc (suspect the hardware isn’t up to it anyway)

    Consider it a ‘bigscreen MP3 Player’ rather than a proper android tablet, otherwise it’s just a toy.

    Probably best avoided, wait 18 months for the price to drop tp £60 or get a better machine for £250

    • Sony Xperia Z2 review

      This is Sony’s latest go at producing a high-spec Android flagship model, with the Xperia Z2 ticking every one of 2014’s must-have tech bullet points. It has a large 5.2-inch 1080p display. It has the hot new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset inside. It has a massive 3GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. It’s […]

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

      The HTC One V is HTC’s third entry in its high-profile new HTC One range, offering a smaller 3.7″ display running on a single-core 1GHz processor.
