SmartQ T20 Review
Review by Peter Ball for TR
Updated: Consumer video review added
With most of the popular budget 9.7" Chinese tablets still using single core processors such as the Rockchip RK2918 or Allwinner A10, the SmartQ Ten20 (SmartQ T20) is a welcome step up to the current 9.7" contenders coming out of Shenzhen, China boasting a TIOMAP4460 Dual Core Cortex-ARM A9 MPCore processor, integrating its POWERVR SGX540 gpu which will knock the socks off the 3D gaming performance of any the current leading budget 9.7/10"ers such as the Onda Vi40 Elite, Gemei G9, Window N90 and Cube U9GT2.
The SmartQ T20 is a powerhouse in the mirky esoteric realm of Shenzhen android tablets and is here is to make a statement. The SmartQ Ten20 is a highly capable tablet which fills the gap for people looking for something thats more capable in the 3D gaming arena plus also supporting basic features like Bluetooth and a HDMI port which seem have been neglected by some of its adversaries.
The Android 4.0.3 ICS device also has a larger 10.1" IPS (10 point) screen with in built light sensor -giving it a larger viewing area than all of its contenders and the entire iPad range. The device also sports a higher 1280x800 resolution than the tablets above, which also gives it a higher resolution than the iPad-2. Please view the comparison chart below for detailed info on the device.

I do like this tablet.
The Ipad is the standard from where everyone else is judged but I cannot helped to be amused that we are now comparing the latest and greatest "Chinese" tablet to what is currently old news in the Ipad world. The truth is that this tablets's technical offering is way behind what is now current. I am not sure that we are doing the tablet any favour by comparing it to an out of date unit.
By the way, I see regular comments similar to the one made here about the 10.1 size screen and claims that it offers a larger viewing area than the 9.7 size screen. This is simply not true. Anyone that have access to both sized units can easily verify that by measuring the length and width of the two screens. Because of aspect ratio, 9x6 vs 4x3, the 9.7 has a greater size viewing area.

Also this screen resolution is already on all new laptops so users are already used to this resolution.
PS. To thread starter >> the name of device is T20 not Ten20.
I have also created new sub forum for it:
