How Le Pan Tablets Work

        Tech | Tablet PCs

Author's Note

There are a lot of Android tablets out there these days. Le Pan comes in at a nice price point for the 9.7-inch tablets, but as a company, they're something of an unknown entity. I've been looking forward to the Nexus 7, and Le Pan hasn't changed my mind.
