    Simple to use.
    Great battery life so far! Been on it a lot today, played games, watched a film, on the net and on 68% battery still.
    Amazing display (4th generation).
    Great apps. I LOVE the national geographic subscription (through zinio).
    Convenient to use - curl up in a chair, no mouse or charger needed.
    Great customer support (had an issue with finding my location, they were sooooooo helpful).
    Quick, no sluggish delays loading pages, games, films etc.
    Easy to use keyboard, can type very quick. Good for browsing!
    Everything backs up quickly and easily.


    Dislikes:


    Actually, I miss the flexibility of android more than I thought I would... You cant choose a default web browser (I much prefer dolphin), can't customise apps, display, widgets etc.
    Very few free apps compared to android, everything has a price.




    That's all I can think of for now. Only had it a day though! Loving national geographic, Netflix, some games (the room, contre jour) etc. So far, so good! The other half (AVID apple hater) hasn't had a look in yet as his new Nokia 920 was delivered the same day. We've barely spoken LOL. Think he's impressed though.
