    this Phone /tablet is just what is just what has been needed for a long time.One bad point though it is not capable of playing mpeg2 video files which is the format most people record films off air
    Perhaps installing additional players from the Android market might install the necessary mpeg2 codecs,I did it successfully on a phone /tablet ,the Huawei Ideos S7-105 installing BSPlayer Lite and VPlayer
    A Chinese company,Letine ,has recently launched on the market at a bargain price a very promising 5″ Phone/Tablet running on Android 2.2,the L10 which has all the features of the Samsung Galxy Note and is mpeg2 capable

    Exactly what was needed.only one thing though it doe
    s not seem to have the capability to read mpeg2 files which is not a good point,unless installing an extra player from the Android market like I have done on my Huawei Ideos S7-105 might install the necessary codecs.The Chinese company Letine is now selling at a bargain price a 5″ tablet the L10 which has all the features of the new Samsung phone/tablet and can play any video format
