i'm also having some firmware problems.
the main problem (without going in to minor details) is that the whole GUI is pretty slow and buggy, and i'm getting a lot of crashes. my first thought was to re-install the firmware, but since yuandao haven't even released the first stock firmware yet, i can't re-install. it basically makes it only really useful for checking emails and reading e-books. video is a bit choppy and games crash... from what i understand, nobody else is having this problem, which is why i'd like to reinstall the original firmware.
i'm also having problems with the device installing programs on the 'internal storage' rather than the NAND flash.
i'd like to get this sorted before i do a full n101 vs u30gt review.
as a side note (because i know a lot of you are dying to know), the sound is much more acceptable on the n101 than the u30gt... comparable to that of a budget laptop, and better than your average mobile phone. the speakers are clear without being harsh or resonant, and has decent stereo separation. (tested with Reggie Watts' TED talk).
wi-fi reception is also a lot better out of the box.
any questions vs u30gt, i'd be happy to answer.
edit: although i'm having a lot of firmware problems, i don't want to shoot this down just yet, since, from what i can tell, these problems are exactly that... firmware.
