Even though the prices of tablets have dropped drastically, a lot of people don’t want and need devices that can connect to the internet or have the option of installing new additional software, or they just want a cheap tablet for their everyday activities. This is just the target audience that Prestigio is looking for with their new tablet.
We have seen portable media players before but, the thing that separates Nobile PER3172B from the rest is its 7 inch TFT screen with 800×480 pixels and at our surprise, it is a non-glossy screen. Even though the colors look livelier and fuller on the glossy screens, the fact is that these devices are mainly used outside the house, in conditions that with strong direct or indirect sunlight that combined with the high reflection make them almost unusable. That is not a problem with Prestigio Nobile PER3172B. The reading of books, as one of its primary functions is usable but, because of the low resolution of the screen, the text is not sharp enough, making it a bit of a hustle, to read a book on this player. For recommendation, is the ability of text reflow, in PDF documents and the ability to change the background color and the color of the letters but, it lacks any kind of options for text formatting, except changing the font dimensions. The implemented two gigabytes are not enough for today’s standards but, they can be extended by the built in microSD card slot. The audio/video reproduction is at the same level as the former models and it supports all the major formats, including MKV format in 720p. It supports video subtitles with some problems in the nonstandard formatting fonts but, for a change its audio exit has been redesigned and the voice clarity is much higher than in the previous versions.
With a price of 70 Euros it doesn’t have any competition on the market.So if you just want to have a tablet that will reproduce video and you don’t want to pay a lot, this should be your choice.
