display that is specially designed for web access, videos and movies on the move. The Tablet is protected by a reinforced damage-resistant Gorilla Glass
, and the device fits in your palm, making it easily portable
. The sleek bar form factor of the Tablet, made of hard plastic and metal back, gives a sense of durability.
