Also touch sensitive screen, this product is very high.
Samsung tablet PC with a 1GHz frequency Arm A8 processor architecture, while equipped with PowerVR SGX540 graphics chip for the smooth running of multimedia files provide a powerful hardware protection; However, if the flash memory card overload, the image will be smooth and the zoom feature bring a greater impact; this point may be caused by the Flash player; In addition, a smart phone equipped with this processor, and there would not have this kind of thing; but this has not greatly affected, after all, Tablet PC is not used to dealing with the important content of Flash.
