Review of 7" Tablet Odys Mira for 3D Printing with #GCodePrintr

I just bought this cheap tablet at the german retailer REAL for 79€ to use it as a control panel for my 3D printer.
After booting it up, I had to configure my wifi and login to Google Play to install GCodePrintr. Then connected the power cable to the dedicated power port and plugged in the USB-OTG adapter (not included). My 3D printer was detected immediately and GCodePrintr did establish the connection to the printer quickly. Loading of a large gcode file (30 MB) worked fine (<3 min) due to the 1GB RAM and Quad Core CPU.
Then I used GCodeSimulator(PC) to send a gcode file from my PC to the tablet over wifi and started a 1h print (Origami Rabbit) which worked very well without any interruption.
I let the GCodePrintr app run in the background and started the "IP Webcam" app to stream the video from the built-in webcam (2MP) to my laptop. The video quality was good to watch the printing process.
The only drawback is the quality of the display (viewing angle dependency), while it is good enough for 3D printing it does not satisfy when using it for other apps (e.g. games).
Summary:
Overall, this is a very good device for 3D printing with #GCodePrintr App. *For just 60-80€ you get a 7" touch screen control panel for your 3D printer *which is powerful enough to use GCodePrintr effciently stream the built-in webcam video to a remote computer.
+1GB RAM + Quad Core CPU
+Dedicated dc input port (to charge during printing)
+OTG support
+built-in webcam (2MP)
+Android 4.4
+Cheap (60-80€)
+Available in Europe (e.g Amazon Germany & UK)
+No bloatware pre-installed (except one Kingsoft Office app)

Looking for feedback from the #3DPrinting community.
What information should be added to #Gcodeinfo App
The App analyzes gcode files and can already show:
Cost / Price, Print Time, Length of Filament needed, Layer Height, Number of Layers, Average / Min print speed, Slowest/Fastest layer, Print Model Size, Print Mode Weight, Print Mode Mass, 2D snapshot image of the print model (top view), 3D View of the model, Temperature by layer , Speed by layer ,Print time by layer
I'm currently adding a chart showing the extrusion speed to easily find issues with over-driving the extruder.

How to configure Linux file manager Nautilus to automatically create thumbnails of GCode files by using GCodeSimulator
Follow the 3 Steps below:
1. Download and install #GcodeSimulator  V1.30
Get GCodeSimulator here: http://gcodesim.dietzm.de/#Download
Create a simple start script (e.g. /bin/gcodesim)
 #!/bin/bash
 java -jar /opt/GCodeSimulator.jar "$@"

2. Add mime type for gcode files
Create a new xml file /usr/share/mime/packages/x-gcode.xml
   <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
   <mime-info xmlns="http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/shared-     mime-info">
    <mime-type type="application/x-gcode">
        <sub-class-of type="application/text"/>
        <comment>GCode</comment>
        <comment xml:lang="de">GCode</comment>
        <glob pattern="*.gcode"/>
    </mime-type>
   </mime-info>

Update Mime types by calling : sudo update-mime-database
Nautilus should now show the mime type of .gcode files as GCode.

3. Configure thumbnailer
Configure the thumbnailer by creating a new configuration file:
/usr/share/thumbnailers/gcode.thumbnailer
Add the following content:
 [Thumbnailer Entry]
 TryExec=gcodesim
 Exec=gcodesim %i %o --thumb
 MimeType=application/x-gcode;

Make sure preview is enabled in the Nautilus options (pay attention to the file size limit option)
Finished Nautilus should now call gcodesim to create thumbnails of the gcode files.
