They will ask you for a Google account. If you do not have one, you will have to create one. If you are familiar with Android devices and use them. You log in with that account.

If you have never used Android software before then it can be a bit daunting. However if you have any ability to use computers then you will quickly figure it out and there is tons of how to do advice on line.

This was how I found out how to set up multiple user profiles.

sadly there is no manual for any modern tablets. Think in 3 phases:
1. how to use hardware (Power button etc this is learned via a tutorial on the device)
2. how to use the os (play with it)
3. what can I do with it (Use your imagination then start reading online and figure out how to get it done.

No, this is not a phone.
In order to mimic your phone you'd need an app that does that.

You can however send and receive Skype calls. It actually does that really well.

With the Wi-Fi version it would require an internet connection and several apps and services as a workaround. With the 3G version it might be possible with simply Google Voice or a similar app and the phone number from your cell phone. I have only tried with the Wi-Fi version.

Yes it's the newer model.
It has a camera, so I'm sure you can record whatever you want on it.

It's good, but I certainly wouldn't expect it to perform as a replacement for a high quality video camera.

This is the 2013 2nd edition. If you mean can you record video via the camera, then yes you can. If you mean record things you are viewing on it. Then I am not sure.

There is no video camera app on the device. However I did find a App that helps you access that option. See the link below. I believe you can get to it via the camera function though. It just may not be straight forward.

It could be a "refurbished" model or it could be the 1st generation. This is the 2nd generation. Unfortunately there is no way of knowing the difference between the 2 as the brief description header does not change. If you compare the specs in the full description you will see the difference.

Simple....the 16GB with the higher price is for the 2013 model which also has a higher resolution screen and dual cameras, the 32GB with the Lower price came out in 2012 and only has one camera (rear) and a lower resolution screen, Both Tablets are now running on the latest android OS which is 4.4

I think that the 32gb one that is for $189 is the older version. The operating system is an older version (4.1 jellybean) on the 32gb and this one is the newer 4.3 jellybean.

The processor and a few other things are updated as well.

Yes you can convert speech to text when sending an email. There is a speech recognition app preloaded on the tablet. When you are in a window composing an email (or basically anywhere you type like a facebook post or a browser URL field for that matter) you will find a little microphone icon either on the keyboard or in search bar. You tap it and it actually does a really good job majority of time in capturing speech accurately. I just dictated this part of my post actually so you can see its really quite good hope this helps.

You can read epub book if you install the Nook app. The result is better than expected. You can adjust the size and the color of the background and of the caracters. You can adjust the line spacing also. The only problem, it's more difficult to read outside, unless you install a screen protector.
