Question

How do you set up wifi

Foolwing the included manual is pretty close info on how to do this, however, Wifi requires connecting to a wireless router or access point. Most routers have or SHOULD have WPA/WPK2 encryption enabled and that requires a password key to connect this unit to the router.

I got it to connect to my router in 3 seconds just by searching for my router and entering the password. DHCP is enabled allows for very easy connecting, but not necessary.

Manual settings are allowed but requires knowledge of IP settings and you may need to contact your ISP for help or more information.

Harriet, I clicked on the wifi and added my network at home, it was fairly simple. My guess it is it would be like walking into any place with wifi, like a Panera and logging on there also

Is this A good Tablet?

So far, for the price point (I invested $100 with optional 8gb SD card) This has proved to be a good tablet. It is a little slow but I have pretty much maxed out the apps and Launcher upgrade that includes high-end graphics. But I am pretty satisfied with it.

I have two different low end tablets now and paid the same price point for both, this one ranks fair. The other tablet has larger screen (9") and is faster with twice internal RAM and is slightly better than the Proscan PLT8088.

Ranking Poor-Fair-Good-Great I rank this unit "Fair to Good"

Can you install Google Play to this tablet?

Yes, NOT out of the box!!!

This unit is NOT "rooted" and so will not allow proper installation of Google Play store, YouTube, Netflix, Pandora and other apps.

It DOES include SlideMe which is similar to Google Play but will not allow you to install your Google Play content you may have already downloaded or paid for already.

I did get Google Play, Amazon Apps, YouTube, Netflix and Pandora to work on this unit AFTER I "rooted" it. This is NOT recommended for novice users to try. It could cause serious problems if done improperly. Googling: Curtis tablet root access PLT8088 will give information on how to do this but could void the warranty!

This unit supports at least 32gb or smaller micro SD cards. I haven;t tried a larger size card YET but I will.

However, it is not necessary to have an external SD card to browse the web. The additional memory WILL allow you to store app data, pics, videos and such onto the SD card which frees up the internal memory.

You mentioned ...my mobile carrier.... and I am not sure I know what you mean? This unit does NOT have cell support OR bluetooth radios so your mobile carrier is not relevant.

You will need to connect via Wifi interface to ANY Wifi access point which many fast food locations and Barnes & Noble and many hotels provide for FREE these days.

You will need to have at least basic knowledge of connecting a wireless device to a wireless router or access point which will allow web browsing and other web based functions (FTP, remote access, etc.)

No, the screen is not the same size of a normal iPad. The iPad's screen size is 9.7 inches (diagonal), this screen is 8 inches (diagonal). But it is almost the exact same size as the iPad mini, which is 7.9 inches (diagonal).

Yes, you must use the Wifi interface AND connect to a local wireless router either at home or elsewhere where there is Wifi access. Many places today offer FREE WiFi like fast food, hotels, book stores and more. Pretty easy to setup on a public Wifi router or at home you need a wireless router to connect this unit to the internet before sending email.

This unit does NOT include a cell service interface or bluetooth interface either.

Does have USB, Wifi and HDMI and has micro SD card slot. Has front facing webcam only, no rear facing cam.

It does take pics from cam that faces the user, does NOT have a forward facing camera so taking pictures of anything but who is using this device is NOT practical.

Quality of lighting and pixels and blurring are all issues with this unit.

It has very low end camera features but will allow IM, Skype, different apps that allow snapshot pics or video are supported.
