1saleaday has dropped the price from 99.99 to 69.99 add 4.99 shipping and the tablet is better than the cheap chi tablets.

I already own 2 and really wish some developers would pick this up and port ICS.

As with all deal sites, the sale is only good for 09/04 or until sold out.

Solid tablet IMO for turning into a XBMC TV server when the app is available (won't be that long) I used mine for Vevo, Youtube and Netflix streaming via the full size HDMI socket, always good quality on a 40" plasma. The only issues are the port covers can be annoying, no hardware volume buttons and a finicky on/off button and the occasional reluctance to wake from sleep. Shame the firmware never went past 2.2 and that devs did not pick it up as the hardware is solid.

I just picked up a second A7+ for the $75 deal. I'm still waiting on my first that should be here in the mail any day (mailed to my Mom in Cali then to me in Guam). I figure there's no potential for loss at $75 when I have several friends interested in "fake" iPads for their young children.

dryster, you mentioned that GAPPS wasn't running on this tablet yet? http://www.slatedroi...are-for-the-a7/

Are Amazon Apps, SlideMe, or anything similar working? I'm sorry if this has been addressed in a previous post. It would be simpler if the A7+ had its own section in the forum from the A7. I suppose I could always manually download .apk's and install them.

The point I'm trying to get at is whether development/modding of the A7+ has been slow due to a lack of devices? If so, I could donate one device. Or is it merely what you stated in the previous forum, that is pretty much, "If it's not broken, don't fix it"?


I'm looking to get Dolphin HD, Netflix, & Kindle running on this tablet. Beyond that, it's really just games to see what it can do and other ways to waste time.

UPDATE: I've got GAPPS, Dolphin HD, Netflix, Kindle, Hulu, Skype, Amazon Apps, Dropbox, Google Drive, and everything else I want running on this.

I've tried it with a USB hub and simultaneously used keyboard and USB mouse input (must use basic mouse as my G500 draws too much power). Skype, and maybe some otheres, I needed trial and error to find the correct apk files for install as the current offering is for Gingerbread and higher only.

I've got a couple extra I'm either gonna give to friends or make some money on craigslist with.
