1) First off, and one of the main reasons I bought the unit, over the Samsung CPU, was because it was being sold as a 1.2Ghz cpu speed but when I got the unit and ran the tests it tells me it's only 1.0Ghz. This has been brought to the attention of sites like Merimobiles and they still continue to advertise it as being 1.2Ghz. On the Rockchip site the CPU is listed as capable of doing 1.2Ghz so why the underclock. I heard of Chinese tablet sites overclocking but I can't see why they would underclock. At least give us to option to use a app like SetCPU to clock it ourselves. I wonder if anyone has an android tablet with the Rockchip 2918 CPU clocked to 1.2?
2) Flash 11 seems to crash the stock browser (or any browser). Since I can't seem to find the latest firmware, besides the Merimobile's site, I can't see this being fixed anytime soon.
3) The wifi is useless. Now I can't figure out what's up with this. Merimobiles sugggests I go back to using wifi "b" which is like going back to the stone ages. Another reason why I bought this tablet was because it had "N". Now here's the strange thing. When I first got the tablet I added it to my wireless router and also added the MAC address to the MAC address filtering option. The wifi was bad right from the start. In hopes of improving the wifi I then updated the firmware. After the update I was no longer able to log onto my wifi. The wifi was there I just couldn't log on. Using my desktop I disabled the MAC filtering which allowed my tablet to connect. When I researched the problem I found that the MAC address had changed after the flash. I didn't realize this was possible (unless it was spoofed).
4) the plastic clear touchpad is soft and will show slight fogging if pressed slightly harder than usual
Now most of these Chinese tablet makes don't design their own motherboards. I think most just modify the reference board provided by the chipmaker and for this reason I'm hoping that the issues with the wopad are just firmware related.
In any case it's not worth sending it back to china.
