Pay no attention to the poor reviews. All the reviewers are comparing it to tablets, not e-readers. The Vox is an e-reader with benefits.
I agree. As a tablet, it is lackluster as it lacks power, features and access to a decent app market. However, it has one big feature that makes it excellent as a color ereader: a great screen. It is bright, high-resolution with very good viewing angles.
It can do some things a tablet can, like play simple games, view movies and surf the net, and do it relatively well, but it's not a full tablet experience. It's rather an ereader with extra features, and it does the job quite well when you consider it like that.
