My System Specs

I'd say both those issues can be remedied with better apps. The stock launcher doesn't support landscape, but alternatives such as Apex or Nova do. Likewise, I'm sure there's better PDF apps out there that will scale documents accordingly. This does have a 1280x800 resolution, compared to most 7" tablets that are only 1024x600.

I should hopefully have mine tomorrow...
