I am about ready to type up the review (mini one) and post up vid & pics - Just wondering if I should create a new thread for it... Nah I'll do it here and if a mod thinks it is worth a new thread then they can move it
OK - I did a very quick video and slapped it together - its posting to youtube now.
Attached to this post is pics I have taken of the unit and also taking it apart.
I think I might do a video on it later if needed.
GPS - Yes - Got signal but have yet to load up igo8, route66, Androzic & Ozi Explorer with maps for full testing
Wifi - Yes - Out of the box it seems unable to get DHCP settings correctly - work around is to add them manually, however updating to the latest firmware fix's this issue.
Bluetooth - untested
Screen - Freaking awesome! Very quick, the viewing angle is awesome as well. The only thing to pick on is it does reflect - so a anti glare screen protector would be good. Will test in sunshine when I can.
System - Not too bad - a few bugs here and there, but nothing a good post or custom rom can't fix!!
Market - locked down - updated versions tried so far for Android2.2 produce fore closes - working on it!
G - sensor - Yes - Works well - haven't tried it on SpeedX which is a game that loves G-Sensors But from what I have used of it with car racing games - its not bad at all.
HDMI Out - No - Unable to test this so far as I need to pick up a cable for it
Camera - Yes - its.... a basic web cam lol 0.3 Mega pixel - but really - thats fine anyway for web video if you wanted to. The recording on the cam is as good as a basic 20 cam.
Things to watch for - Its seems if these tabs are in sleep mode and run out of power - when you plug them in again you need to hit the reset to get them to power on. This happens with all 4 units I got. It seems they are packaged in sleep mode so the battery is pretty much out of charge when you get them. Some people have reported charging problems. From what I have seen the cable included are not very good at all. I would recommend using your own USB power cables for your computer and charge off USB or get a good quality wall charger. One unit has sat for a long time now trying to charge with the included cable not making it past 40%. Once I changed the cab;e to my own - its up to 60% and still going
