(Part 1) Android Tablet – Unboxing…

It’s finally here! If you been following this blog you will know that I placed an order for a R700,00 Android Tablet from Lightake.com on the 24th March – read here for the original post.  Well it arrived in my grubby paws on the 20th April.

I had been tracking it online so I knew that it was at the local Post Office before I got the slip saying to come collect.  Import duties worked out to be R98.61 so it was far less than I expected.

I was very worried about the packaging, and if the tablet would arrive in 1 piece or 1000 pieces…needless to say it was without merit as you will see by the unboxing photos below…

Layer 1: The package arrived unopened,  and no sign for wear from the long trip. It also felt very padded to the squeeze touch:

Layer 2 and 3: Beneath the yellow packaging there was a layer of bubble wrap surrounding a cardboard box…

Layer 4 and 5: Inside the cardboard box was another layer of bubble wrap and then…the actual packaging that the tablet comes in…

Layer 6: The tablet is inside a thin protective pocket inside the box:

Finally all packaging off this is what all inside the box and the first look at the device:

Inside the box is a 9V US charger, a connector with 2x USB and 1x Ethernet port, a manual and the Tablet.

Here you can see just how big the device is:

The only downside was the charger that shipped was a 2 prong rectangle US charger, not the round European type one that we know so well here in South Africa. But no fear an Ellies AC/DC Converter, set to the correct voltage and polarity enabled me to charge the Tablet over night.

To Be Continued…
