So I've had my ickle apad for a week now and I thought id do a review.I have given it a fair good going over in terms of how much anyone could expect. I will break down the review into sections.Ease of use, responsiveness, battery, wifi, surfing, Ebook reading, audio, video, upgrading.Ease of use.When you first switch on the apad (after charging) you are presented with a pretty simplistic and very intuitive homescreen. After doing the usual slidey-finger wowser moments (mainly for those who haven't used a touchscreen device before) you quite quickly become accustomed to the screen. Everything is relatively easy to use and understand.I am using it to write this and apart from the keyboard being a bit slow and mistyping the odd letter it is acceptable. I have used better keyboards like slide it, but the stock isn't that unusable. Rather strangely it is easier to type in portrait mode than in landscape mode.Responsiveness.Being resistive I was expecting the screen to be jerky and slow. I have used many capacitive screens before now and I was surprised at just how good it was. It is no ipad but it ain't bad.Battery.This is where I was expecting this pad to dissapoint. However, I have been using it for almost 3hours on wifi and my battery is still showing 68% charge. At this rate I will get around 5-6 hours on wifi. My settings are 50% screen brightness and running adv tsk killer. Nowhere near the expected 2hours I had read and resigned myself to. I should add I am running rogers 5.1 ROM.Wifi.Out of the box very poor. Sitting less than 8feet from the router and barely got a signal. After upgrading the rom I got a minor improvement. However, I have since re-positioned the router and signal strength has improved. Still not great but more usable. If only someone would fix the adhoc ability?Surfing.To get the best out of this device you need a decent browser. The stock browser is okay, but others I use are skyfire and opera (both on marketplace). Surfing is fast, display is good and pages look not too different from pc.Ebook reading.I was really hoping that this function would be ace. I wasn't dissapointed. I had read reviews about the screen res being poor and giving eye strain etc. Well, reading for me isn't a problem. I suffer from migraines and a form of motion sickness which is often triggered by screen flicker. Happy to say I don't have too many probs. Also, comic books are clear and easy to view. I use ACV for comice and Aldiko reader gives access to loads of free books. Docs to go allows viewing of pdfs which are also pretty good.Audio/video.In a word usable. Audio is poor, even through headphones. Not sure if this can be fixed with better drivers or not. The speaker is only good if you are in a noise free area. Any background noise and you miss a lot of what's being said. Video is pretty good. I have a bug on my device when trying to play you tube fullscreen. Sometimes I need to press the homepage rocker button after selecting the clip for it to view fullscreen. No biggie, don't really use you tube a lot. Plays most of the files I've thrown at it, so thumbs up there.Upgrading.This is where I was hoping this device would come into its own. The stock rom I got was the archosr/ramos one. I have upgraded to rogers 5.1 and it is better. I will continually upgrade to each new/faster or stabler rom as they arrive.To upgrade the device it is reasonably simple, IF you follow the tutorials to the letter. I know some of you are not native english speakers, so don't be afraid to ask for help.Anyways, its taken me ages to write this on the pad. I will update this periodically, but if anyone has any questions or things they want to know just ask.RikiOver 3hours on wifi now and battery is showing 62%!
