NeoPad Android 2.2 Touchscreen Tablet – 10″

NeoPad Android 2.2 Touchscreen Tablet – 10″ Colour Screen, 2x Touch Gesture Recognition, Micro SD Ex – AWESOME @ $89 as NEW!


Bought one of these second-hand recently from Cash Converters as the price was only $89!
It seemed in excellent condition in the original box with all accessories and Manual.
I had been looking on the web for a TouchPad for some time but could not justify the 200-400 dollars it looked like you needed to spend to get all the features this NeoPad 1050 has.
Things like Games and a Camera were lowest on the list so as not important to me as decent email and web operation on a larger screen with 3g and/or WiFi.
You have to be careful buying from Cash Converters, having bought a lot of Radios from them, but sometimes you can crack an excellent bargain. And this was one of those times!
Had been returned the day earlier from a previous buyer, so completely checked it out going thru everything before I left the store.
I suspect the previous buyer was not technically  illiterate as the return was because it “did not work on the internet!”
I had read through the manual included where it explained that it did with certain provisos on certain common 3g USB sticks so I figured it should not be too much problem to get it going.
I had my wifes USB 3 3g stick (HUAWEI E160G CD57TCPU) working on the net in 5 minutes!
The wifi took a bit longer until I took the SIM from my Telstra 3g Modem and put it in my pocket Telstra 3g to WiFi box.
The NeoPad 1050 WiFi was going thru the 3g pocket box onto the net almost immediately after I set it up,  so I guess it helps if you have some clue about googling on the net to figure these things out.
Found it a bit limiting in the fact it has no mouse and the screen keyboard is small -obviously its a ten inch screen-
BUT a USB 4 Port HUB soon solved all those issues.
I now have my spare USB full size Keyboard and thumbwheel Mouse connected as well as a USB 4gb Mem Key and a 1TB backup USB HDD when on my desk at home.
This is an amazing device and all the knockers on the net are fools.
This NeoPad 1050 TouchPad sells for around $150 new on the net in Australia and I am happy that I paid $89 for it on a chance it would be OK.
