I am curious to know if Google Play Store works (and if it comes with it or only Android Market)...
Play Store works fine. Most apps seem to be there (apart from NOVA 3). I'm sure there are others but no tablet is perfect.
Another one is Google Maps, do the navigation or localization works with WiFi and / or 3G dongle?
Seems to work ok with Wifi. I don't have a 3G dongle to test.
And the games I am more interested are Mass Effect: Infiltrator and N.O.V.A. 3...
Mass Effect: Infiltrator works. I cannot see N.O.V.A. 3 in Play Store so I will have to side load it (or try build.prop tweaks)...then again at £4.99 maybe I'll wait until it's on offer again. Shadowgun works fine. Got to test Asphalt 7.
For HDMI, did you already connect it to your TV? Is it good?
Not yet tested. Will try tonight and update here.
I went with the 8" too as what I will do most is to read books and study... Most of the books I use are in pdf and I find it really awful to read them in the computer / laptop... I am hoping to have a much better experience with this tablet!
Do the pdf reader (is it adobe?) works like a charm or are there any problems you found during your readings?
Is the IPS screen of the N80 really nice for reading?
I use it quite a bit for PDF magazines and the screen is great for this. I have a few paid apps for PDFs but I find Adobe Reader pretty good actually. It even saves your location within a PDF.
EDIT: what about the sound of this? are the speakers ok quality at least? and the headphone output is good sounding?
Sound is very good for a small footprint single speaker design. Will try headphones and update here tonight.
