I am very excited about the company’s new line of tablets. We have reviewed its devices extensively in the past and are quite happy with the build quality. The company has licensed our own white labeled version of the Good e-Reader Android App Store to ensure that you have access to over 6,000 quality games and apps. It has the Good e-Reader App Store bundled with the 1Mobile Market to give you two giant markets.
