Some of you may remember the original Ouku Tab and the Ouku Black that were released way back in Q1 of this year. These low cost Android tablets proved to be very popular, offering as they did unbeatable value for money, solid hardware, and a pleasant user-experience.
Well this time around Ouku have brought even more to the table with the Ouku Night 3G Android tablet, offering a whole host of high end of features and functions, whilst offering great value for money. For less than $230 you get a 3G Android 2.2 tablet with a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen and built-in front and rear cameras.
The first thing to note about the Ouku Night is the fact that it is 3G, simply insert a 3G enabled SIM card into the tablet and you should have internet access wherever you go. The 3G internet worked well, and was speedy enough to prevent any serious frustrations. I was able to comfortably check out all my favorite websites whilst sitting on the bus on the way home from work, without any problems at all. I even attracted some envious looks from the conformist Wi-Fi only iPad owners, who seem to outnumber Manchester United fans these days.
The Ouku Night 3G has an excellent 7 inch capacitive touchscreen, making web browsing a breeze and gaming a lot of fun…I was able to slice the fruit like a true ninja. The 800MHz processor coupled with the 512MB RAM prove to be fast enough to handle all the action packed games available from the Android Market, Angry Birds Rio and Alien Invasion were superb.
The Ouku Night 3G also comes with front and rear facing cameras so that you can take videos, snapshots and perhaps even video chat with applications such as Fring and Tango. I was also able to make voice calls and send/receive text messages once my 3G SIM card was inserted, which proved to be a surprisingly useful feature.
The media player was as to be expected on an Android device. It was very easy to use and it seems to play most video formats. The 720p HD videos played very nicely and the 7 inch screen was just enough to enjoy my favorite shows on the morning commute. Unfortunately there is no HDMI out port, so there’ll be no connecting this device to your HD television.
Overall the Ouku Night 3G tablet is perfect for anyone who is looking for a 3G tablet and doesn’t want to sign up for a lengthy data contract and doesn’t want to break the bank, as 3G tablets are often priced well in excess of $500. Currently the Ouku Night 3G is on sale for only $219.99, a bargain for such a solid product. The four color options also give you the chance to own a tablet that stands out from the crowd for all the right reasons.
