    Cool Honeycomb: The good and the bad

    I'm actually thrilled with this update. It has taken an antiquated tablet and brought it up to par. Now I feel GREAT about my $160 woot investment. However, I have noticed a few issues with the update that others have mentioned.

    1. Playing Youtube videos in the FB app and elsewhere outside of the Youtube app.
    2. The Wifi connection does disconnect when unattended. Changing settings doesn't affect this much.

    Other than these things... I have been thrilled with the update. I love the new Kindle app, and especially the new browser.

    I switched browsers after the update. Opera uploads fast and I am able to seach around for aps for other sites. How is the FB ap working for people these days? So far no problem with the deletion of Net Flicks. Anyone else delete some of the bloatware introduced via the update?

    The bad -hbo go and maxgo don't work, font too small, loss of external buttons and wasted screen space for the on panel ones.

    The good - sd card seems to work properly

    Unsure - speed and battery life. Gps seems more responsive



    So far it's a meh for me.

    The Good!

    Speed Speed and more speed the Vtab is a lot more responsive and smooth.
    Browser is a ton better and now I am no longer defaulted to the mobile sites. The font size for me is not bad I prefer the layout.
    SD Card yes a major flaw in a 4GB system is now fixed so we can have up to a 32gb sd card and the 4GB the Vtab came with. It does seem some apps can not be moved but most of mine can. I would recommend a Class 10 card for the speed of download.
    I prefer the on screen buttons I find they are responsive than bevel buttons were touchy at best.
    Plus the keyboard is more accurate and cursed is more precise.
    Also it seems with the HC update that Bluetooth keyboards now work.

    Things others are having trouble with that I am not:
    My Win7 64 bit system see's my SD card/Vtab with no problems.
    My WiFi connection is more stable now than before.

    Bad:
    Videos in the browser tend to have no picture just sound unless I use the full screen option. Yes when I hit the full screen the video plays perfectly. Not sure why this is any ideas.
    My MLB at bat no longer plays the video highlights. Everything else works great the Gameday and Gameday audio are perfect as does the score updates etc. Just the videos I have read this is an issue with HC and MLB at Bat I am calling MLB tomorrow to confirm.


    All in all I love the HC update it has made my Vtab perfect so much so I bought one for everyone in the family!!!

    PS Except my daughter she wanted a lenovo Ideapad A1 for graduation from college so I got her one this weekend(she got a car last year so smaller gift this year) :P Not a bad tablet, she really likes it for the more stock android look. It runs 2.3 I wonder if Lenovo is going to update to HC or ICS. But the Vizio's screen blows it out of the water. But her's has 16GB and the same speed processor and memory. It is smaller 7 inch vs 8 inch I think the Vizio beats it hands down but she likes it and thats all that counts.

    I saw this in another thread so the flash update is compatable with the HC update? I guess I need to do a search and find the thread so I can update with the correct flash veresion.

    You download the APK file of the program same as you would an EXE on a PC. Once you load the APK file on the tablet, use a file manager program (Astro, Android Assistant, ETC...) to locate file and click to install. It allows you to install apps blocked by the market, but does not promise that they will work.
    I am not a conspiracy nut.

    The government secretly started that rumor to discredit me.

    Well, after playing with the HC upgrade fro a few days, I like it. So far only one app that needed to be reloaded. And I am used to the small size of the icons now I guess..LOL.
    I finally figured out how to set up my Embarqmail using the mail client but I'm not sure if HC helped with that or not. Overall I am really pleased with the HC upgrade and my Vizio.
