Website Reviews: 

"The resistive touchscreen obviously lacks some finesse in comparison to what we’ve come to expect from capacitive displays, but worked well nonetheless... Verizon had a test LTE network up and running and, as you’d hope, streaming performance was impressive. HD internet video loaded and played without pause – ICD developed the media app themselves – and web browsing felt as fast as a desktop broadband connection."

SlashGear, January 2010

"The 7-inch, touchscreen tablet sports quite an impressive set of specs... The version we had a chance to play with -- a prototype running Android 2.0 -- was blazingly fast when it came to 1080p playback and web browsing, but was pretty incomplete as far as the rest of the software was concerned (though the company says they're working on optimizing the experience all around)."
