Not 3G

Like most of the other tablets of this age and spec, the Slate 7 is not 3G.

Not 4G

Most similar spec tablet computers that were released more than two years ago are not 4G. The Slate 7 is no exception to this as it too is not 4G.

The average display diagonal of tablets that have been on the market for around the same time as the Slate 7 is 8.7", and the display diagonals range from 3.9" to 19".

We compared all the other 7" tablets to this tablet and we think because of it's better review score, the Huawei MediaPad[plb_1498227_price] is also worth considering.

If this tablet display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Ematic EGD078[plb_2479190_price] (7.9") which is also higher rated.
