Technology: The tablet Pearl Touchlet X10

With the X10, Pearl presents an entry-level tablet, which must propose great features at a very reasonable price. The 9.7-inch wide viewing angle and stable IPS display with glass surface is 1,024 x 768 pixels and is expected to reach luminous 400 cd / m². The single-core processor operates at 1 GHz and has 1GB of RAM. The internal memory can be expanded with a microSD memory card up to 32GB.

There is USB host function and fast wireless internet for communication, an external UMTS stick can be retrofitted. Front webcam and camera are also on the board. Even a HDMI port for TV and projector is available.Given the price, the first impression of quality is surprisingly good. The case is carefully processed with narrow gaps; the outer edge is at times a little high. The glass front and back aluminium give the tablet a very good stability.

After stripping off the outer protective film, a second film remains on the underlying panel. The manual recommends that this not be deducted. However, we notice in the peripheral areas some air pockets that do not disappear during the test. With 600 grams, the X10 weighs as much as an iPad 2 without 3G option, even though the battery with 6500 mAh should be significantly more powerful. At the thickest point of the rounded rear casing, we measure 11 millimetres.

Control buttons on the side edges

Four buttons operate it: we find a button front, sides above the rocker for the volume control and the power button and at the head of a switch for fixing the panel orientation. The buttons work properly, with good tactile feedback and quiet cracking. The arrangement is convenient when holding in landscape mode they are ideal.All connections are on one: USB, HDMI mini design, headphone jack and AC adapter jack, a microSD slot, and two tiny openings for the microphone and the reset button.

All sockets are freely without covers. In addition, the card slot is not covered; the card can be recessed flush with targeted fingernail pressure clean snap on and off.
