It's very light for a 7-inch device, weighing just 0.54 pounds (245g).

Its screen has a mediocre 1,280x800-pixel resolution, less than the new Nexus 7.

It's really thin as well as light.

Crammed into its svelte frame is a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM.

The back has a textured finish and doesn't feel too plasticky.

There's a bog-standard 5-megapixel camera on the back and a 1.6-megapixel front snapper for video calls.

This metallic lip is a bit of design flair that continues round the back.
