This needs custom firmware BAD.All the buttons are on the back and hard to reach in the case. The onscreen icons for Back and Menu are missing, But has 2 useless icons for a phone.No working accelerometer if it has one you can't get to it. Cannot turn on manual rotate in settings. It's landscape and stays that way. Some apps try to display portrait and show shortened in the middle of the landscape screen. Has a terminal but I can't get a keyboard to come up.Cable to allow regular USB connector to plug into the Mini-USB doesn't work. So I cannot use a thumbdrive, mose or keyboard. (this may be an easy fix might just be bad cable)More later.

add to the list no volume buttons, if you hookup via usb, you have to unmount and remove the sd card before you can mount it on a computer. I have not found a way to clear my google account, as i would sure like to either sell or return this, but i cant get my personal info off of it and cant do a factory reset.

A lot of this can be fixed. The no Back/menu icon, orientation icon, vol? icon can all be added in a new build.they have already promised a fix to the market and internal storage size issues.It's not a bad device just released too soon and with wrong info given.

I dont know how they plan to support updates, if you get to the recovery menu, you cant navigate it. try it out with the power off press home and power on for a few seconds, eventually you will get an android with a triangle, press home and there you are at a useless recovery menu
