g10 The GPAD G10 7” Android Tablet that I promised a couple of weeks ago has arrived from China-based PandaWill.com.  It arrived today.

Full spec details on the GPAD G10 can be found on the PandaWill.com website here.  It sells for $177.99 which includes International Air Mail shipping to the US.

What follows in this posting is my unboxing report.  After I use and get comfortable with the device, I’ll post my full review in a few days.

My GPAD G10 arrived by international DHL.

IMG_0381

The box inside the DHL envelope was almost completely wrapped in packing tape.

IMG_0383

Virtually no empty space was in the box as plenty of bubble wrap was used.

IMG_0384

The actual retail box was also taped and surrounded in bubble wrap.

IMG_0385

Here’s the actual retail packaging—simple with a minimum of product description.  The back of the retail box shows virtually the same image and text as the front.

IMG_0386

The retail packaging is actually a heavy and high quality box inside a thin cardboard sleeve.  The inside box has even less text and product description than the outside sleeve.

IMG_0388

The heavy and high quality inside box is actually another sleeve with a tray box containing the device and the included accessories.  Everything is surrounded with heavy partitioned foam.

IMG_0390

The four [4] accessories included are a mini-CD, white headphones, a USB cable, and a non-US power supply.  Hmmm…that might be a problem!

IMG_0391

The tablet itself is well protected in a cushioned envelope.

IMG_0392

When the tablet is removed from the cushioned envelope, you can see protective plastic on the screen.

IMG_0393

The protective plastic is also on the obverse.  No way is this device going to get a scratch during shipping.

IMG_0394

Once the protective plastic film has been removed, the tablet itself is seen for the first time.  I certainly get the impression that the manufacturing quality is of high quality.  More on what I find later.  There appears to be a camera in the upper right of the black bezel.  There is a touch on/off button on the middle right of the bezel with an LED charging indicator below that button.

IMG_0395

On the right side are the following: a hole exposing the microphone, the MicroSD slot, two [2] mini USB plugs with another on / off switch, a headphone socket and the power adapter hole.

IMG_0396

Along the top edge is a rocker switch labeled with a “home” symbol and a symbol that seems to indicate text.  Hmmm…I guess that will take some investigation.

IMG_0397

Unfortunately, I need to charge the unit and I don’t have the correct international power adapter.  I guess I need to make a quick trip to Radio Shack before I can learn more about the GPAD G10.

IMG_0398

Somewhat surprisingly, no manual or user guide is included with the device.  In fact, there are no instructions or paperwork of any kind included.  Nor is any MicroSD card or stylus for the resistive touch display included.

I’ll have more pictures and hopefully a video posted in a few days when I complete the review.
