In addition to your tablet, the black cardboard packaging includes a USB cable for charging on your computer and file transfer. That's about it: there's no wall charger unit included, and no other accessories outside of a little card with some documentation on it.

Handling

Due to the design of the tablet, it's very obvious that Amazon intends for its users to hold their tablet in a landscape orientation, as the layout of the speakers and the camera lends well to this. While it makes sense for a media consumption device to do this, it does make it a bit harder to hold with one hand. This is all relative, of course, because the tablet itself isn't all that heavy due to its diminutive size. Still, it's just something to be aware of.
