Hey there,My name is lixin, and I am part of the group in China that makes the Apad you all use. Our operations are small and humble, but we have a passion for Android and Google.Since Slatedroid.com loads very slowly in China, I regret to inform you all that I cannot afford frequent this community as often as I'd like. If you want to find me for something, you can find me at Gtalk/Gmail is [email protected]You can also find me on our QQ group, which is linked on our blog. I also invite you all to visit our blog, where we will be providing firmware updates for the device and answering some of your questions. Please keep it simple and bear in mind that our resources are limited for full out customer support. But we will do what we can. Our blog is at: http://hiapad.com We appreciate your comments!Thanks for supporting us by buying our product! Gallery of Pictures of Our Device
Edit: English speaking friend helped me modify this to be more legible for you all.

[quote author=bmwboyee link=topic=271.msg2319#msg2319 date=1274899127]could you please focus on something like this:http://micgadget.com/3381/ipad-knockoff-upgraded-with-android-2-1-and-larger-display/I would buy 100.[/quote]From my last chat with Chip3c, Chip3c is currently developing a version based on an OMAP Cortex class CPU, but that would likely be at another price point and at a later date. The appeal for Cortex based products running on Froyo is there because Google I/O has recently demonstrated that such products will have full Adobe Flash. Rockchip fits a very different market, at a much lower price point, yet still achieves a lot of functionality.

Hello! Thanks for making the Apad. I got mine yesterday and I love it. There is one beef, though - which I wish you would hotfix:You guys modified the Android OS on the Apad in a way that it shows all applications in landscape, even though the OS is in Portrait Mode. Now when an application from the market (a game for instance) switches to landscape mode, the Apad switches to Portrait, thus making the application not work as intended.Could you guys please release a hotfix for this? Youtube.apk, beebplayer.apk and most games are affected by this.

Hi chip3c,One of the most important point was not mentioned or asked here. Can you please provide us a recovery image for the apad??? We are in desperate need of such a file. Most of us dont have the skills or equipment to do a full nand backup with a reader.Thank you,Jlove

[/quote]Hello! chip3c,I couldn't find any official support of apad. It's good news for me and apad user.As you mentioned, Android 2.1 is not better than android 1.6. but Android 2.2 could be good choice because of apad's hardware limitation.Can we get android 2.2 firmware from rockchip or you?If it is possible, it will be great for apad user!!!One more question, my apad has some bugs.1. panel or backlight control error on firstboot : brightness is different on half and half. After display on/off, it's ok.2. mic didn't work : If I use recoding software, it can record tick noise only.3. g-sensor is malfunction : g-sensor is malfunction on level program or game, apad seems to use AK8976ACould above problems be fixed with new firmware?

[quote author=xaueious link=topic=271.msg2318#msg2318 date=1274898447]7. Built in 3000mAh capacity battery. Current batch has about 2 hour battery life. [/quote]That can`t be right can it? Is Rockchip that demanding?
The battery capacity is projected to increase with a target of 5 hours for the production batches coming in October.
no no no :'(

I chatted with chip3c again last night. The manufacturer is still focusing on the Chinese market for their devices. While they would like to support international buyers as well, they simply do not have the capacity to do that at the moment. However they are trying very hard to improve their product and streamlining various things. In particular, there are a lot of software optimizations to be made. They are working to resolve all the issues now.
