As a budget tablet PC, the Leader International Impression 10 distinguishes itself immediately in a few ways. Unfortunately, the limitations of this tablet are also apparent fairly quickly upon use. While not detracting from the Impression 10, some lacking features will not endear it to more serious users.
For the price, the Impression 10 offers a great 9.7” capacitive touchscreen, perhaps the biggest and sharpest in the entire $300-$350 range. This alone will surely guarantee that Leader International has a popular model here, particularly given that the responsiveness is also of high quality and video viewing is outstanding for a low-price tablet. The Impression 10 tablet also includes a decent camera and supports Flash video.
Disadvantages first come up in the operating system and internal hardware. The OS is merely Android 2.2, a strange (and behind-the-times) choice for a tablet released in late 2011. This of course means that Android Market is not accessible and, while the Impression 10 does include some typical widgets and apps, the software selection is particularly stripped down in this tablet. Additionally, the microprocessor runs only at 800 MHz, again a bit of an anachronism already, and one which makes things run much more slowly than many users would like.
Along with the Impression 7 , the Impression 10 represents Leader International’s first plunge into the tablet PC world and the device shows the hallmarks of a first try. While some users will have no problems with the Impression 10, this one definitely feels appropriate for first-timers only.
