Home Reviews Mobile Devices Millennius SmartQ Tablet PC

Gadget users today are somewhat spoilt for choice and functionality.  Tablet PC's are increasingly looking to scratch that consumer itch, from out of the ether (China actually) comes the Millennius SmartQ Tablet, promising web access everywhere and the choice of dual boot operating systems.


Certainly on paper the Millennius SmartQ ticks a number of must-have boxes for those looking at the tablet computer market.

It brings Dual Boot OS with Ubuntu Linux and 2.1 Google Android a 7.0 inch touchscreen, 8GB of storage via a free SDHC card (maximum expandability to 32GB), Wi-FI and Bluetooth, USB and HDMI 1080P video playback.

The onboard processor is an ARM11 600MHz with 3D graphics support whilst memory consists of 256MB DDR II Ram with 128MB Virtual cache.

Design wise however the Millenius is a disappointment.  Like that tech gadget you got from your grandmother at Christmas time, sometimes the excitement wears off soon after unwrapping.

The 200mm X 120mm X 24mm pearl case weighs in at 480 grams and just doesn't press any excite buttons when handed around.

Speaking of buttons, there are three on the front panel, effectively a '+' a '-' and a 'home' button.  On the bezel side there are three more buttons, depending on which OS you boot into they perform different functions, but one is primarily supposed to be power.  These side buttons have minimal response making it difficult to know if the option has been selected.

Up top of the unit is a 3.5mm head phone jack, a USB 2.0 port and HDMI connection - the SmartQ package includes a shortish HDMI type C cable as an added bonus.
