It even delivers hundreds of games and entertainment apps right to your fingertips.
To ensure maximum flexibility, the tablet's generous 8GB of internal Flash memory is expandable thanks to the microSD/SDHC memory card slot. This way, you'll be able to comfortably store all your favorite music, videos, family photos, business documents, eBooks, local newspapers, daily podcasts, weekly magazines, movies and more.

You can even configure several different email accounts using the pre-installed Email App, which can deliver email notifications on the tablet home screen. The battery inside the tablet is a powerful lithium-polymer rechargeable battery that supports up to 36 hours of music playback, 7 hours of video playback, and up to 10 hours of Internet navigation time.
