No what? That's scarcely good info.
No thank you!
No thank you please, It only makes me sneeze, and then it makes it hard to find the door,......
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Android 2.1 has been put on the device. Few glitches to be worked out though.
bigtexatx, Any links to info on how you did the upgrade?
From XDA site
As this is more a retagging of the ePad, it appears the method used to load 2.1 on it works, noted in the XDA forum.
Just as a note, I personally haven't done the root. My $99 tablet (as the article suggested, its only $99 and can be returned to walgreens) is in the mail. I was just previewing the ability to root for when I get mine in hand.
Bigtex, I definitely appreciate the info. When my own unit arrives I may try the replacement. This'll be my first time using a tablet--despite my own warnings above, I'm curious and the teensiest bit hopeful.
Joel, I am as well. I know to keep my excitement level low as it's a low quality resistive touch screen, a CPU that's hardly faster than my G1's, the specs are far below my droid incredible. However, it's 7" and I just want a basic 7" browser and ability to use a few apps for work. I'm getting tired of carrying the laptop into meetings and dealing with cables. The ability to browse and take notes on this will earn its keep. If it sucks in 30 days, walgreens are Everywhere.
We had one in the office, used it for about 20mins, it's a pile of crap! the videos didn't even play in the youtube app! get an ipad )
Remember, you get what you pay for.
Heh, I like SuperDaves take on this... I concur its just an apple rip off.
I agree that the visual display is an iDevice ripoff, but other than that it's just a tablet on its own.
For some of us users we don't want a 10" tablet, nor do we want to pay $500+ for something that is far more robust than for what it is we want to do. To me Apples iPad is a rip off of my money. It isn't to all users which I understand. For people looking at a 7" low powered, low cost device, to state "get an iPad", is a bit ridiculous.
The Cherrypal 7" is the real competitor to this device. I will have both within a week to see if the $100 added fee for the Cherrypal is worth it over this thing. I expect with the CPU bump, the Back button and not having to deal with waiting for a decent custom ROM to give me 2.2 for Flash playback, it will be worth its value.
Spending over $200 just isn't worth the price for someone like me personally. I wouldn't get more value out of it.
It's just another case of people that want an iPad ... but would rather spend $99 to avoid having one.
Joel, I would be very interested to know your opinion of this tablet once you get it. Also, that PIC of Rosie is awesome!
Super Dave:that PIC of Rosie is awesome!
That's a YAK!
