Medion Lifetab P9514 Tablet Review Specifications Price

Medion Lifetab P9514 tablet is made by a German PC maker Medion. The Medion Lifetab was pushed in the market in month of December, just before the festive season to begin.

Medion LifeTab P9514 Review looks similar like other tablets in the market, there's no huge difference or remarkable change which you will find in its design an structure. The Medion tablet has soft feeling grey plastic on the back and a gloss black finish on the front.

Medion Lifetab P9514 is powered by speedy Tegra 2 processor, the tablet runs on latest Honeycomb 3.2 OS. The Medion P9514 tablet sports a 10″ touchscreen with a 1280×800 resolution, front and rear cameras, built-in 3G connectivity, and 32GB built-in storage. For ports, there is MicroUSB, MicroSD, 3.5mm headphone, and micro HMDI.It also gives access to the Android Marketplace, thus plenty of ready apps available for download.

The 10" inch Medion Lifetab display screen is bright and clear. The TFT panel has good viewing angles and feels smooth to touch. Medion also includes its own Media software on the tablet. It also includes a complementary copy of Documents to Go.

Some of the noticeable things of Medion Lifetab P9514 Tablet is that it creaks when the case is pressed towards the edges, the power and volume buttons on its edges are sunken and therefore require a really firm press to activate, and the unit charges through a proprietary pin connector rather than its standard micro-USB port. The gloss black bezel also reflects too much light, while the screen is hard to see in direct sunlight, thus you may face difficulty in outdoor usages of the tablet.

On the left side of the Medion Lifetab tablet, there is the microSD and SIM card slot, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a standard micro-USB port. At the bottom is the proprietary dock connector that charges the unit. The tablet also comes with a HDMI-out adapter, through which you can connect the Medion tablet to an HD TV. Don't expect the tablet to be a light weighted, it weighs 720gm / 25.4 oz. The sound coming from the stereo speakers was also strong and clear.

In landscape mode the screen is wider than the iPad which makes the type on newspapers and other similar sites slightly larger although the amount of vertical screen distance you have is then a little less so you might have to scroll one or two times more. The Android 3.2 is responsive and quick. Screen resolution is also just as good when you zoom into same sections of a electronic newspaper for example. Scrolling is not as smooth as the iPad though, but certainly acceptable. Web browsing also supports Flash.

Overall, with given specs, Medion Lifetab P9514 Tablet is a good buy, without breaking your pockets. The LifeTab also has UMTS/HSDPA mobile broadband support and comes with a pre-installed SIM with 10 Euros of Aldi Talk credit in Germany. The Medion Lifetab is available from Aldi (a German supermarket chain) for price of  €399
