    I have been following the posts with some curiosity. Is the 7022 better than the 7024 ot vice versa. They have different chipsets and I was under the impression the 7024 would have a better chip. I would be using for video including netflix. Can you add swype or something similar to them?

    Thanks,

    Stew

    I can only comment on the 7022 as i do not have an experience with the 7024. The 7022 has 2.3 (gingerbread) vs 2.2 (froyo), also the 7022 has the compactive touch screen versus a resistance touch screen of the 7024. On that point i don't beleive you can add swype to the 7024, but im pretty sure the 7022 can be loaded with swype.

    Im very happy with the 7022, and have had no problems. Its very smooth, stable and pretty quick

    I am very pleased with the 7022. It runs Netflix and does very smoothly. Hope this helps.

    I have ha both, first the 7024 and then swapped to the 7022. Even though the 7022 has the newer Android version 2.3 and capacitive screen, I wish I had the 7024 back. I was able to install market on the 7024 and get it working, downloaded the same apk files on the 7022 and every time I try to download from the market it force closes. I think I would take the resistive screen just to have apps working again, unless someone figures this out soon, I will be selling the 7022.

    Got the market working so I'm happier with the 7022.

    How did you get Netflix to work? Did you download an app or did you just use your browser and log into your account?

    I bought a 7024. Got the market pretty easy, had flash 10.3 working, and I liked it except for the idiot smartkeys. Liked the external volume control,stereo speakers, and the screen was pretty good. The soft keys bugged me so bad, I tried to root it and made a total paperweight out of it. Screen won't light up at all. I got a 7022 a couple of weeks ago and I love it. Rooted it easily, everything works. The only complaints I have are that the wifi is a little weak, battery life could be a little better, and I really miss the volume control. The ease of rooting and the touch screen more than makes up for that. It will connect to flash cards, and I have a 500 gig Seagate GoFlex HD that i can use with it too. HDMI streaming to TV works well. It is a very versatile tablet.

    Swipe can be installed on the 7024. The key difference between the two models is the touch screen. I have the 7024, and can only input with one finger at a time so Pinch to Zoom or any other commands that require more than one input will not work. If you can find a 7022 I would get that model.

    Swipe can be put on the 7022 as well, I have it on mine. I have had both the 7024 and 7022, and the capacitive screen made the 7022 the winner IMHO:).

    I have the 7024 and I absolutely love it. Now my only other android experience was an htc hero so just the hardware on this was a big step up.

    It had taken about a week of using to get used to the resistive touchscreen as opposed to using a capacative. It was really easy to install flash and google market on this tablet. I like that it has apk install features without the need for rooting.

    The resistive touchscreen really shined when I brought it to the sports bar with co workers to do our hockey draft for our hockey pool. I had access to all the web pages for all my hockey draft. It was so handy to use the back of the pen to control the touchscreen as my fingers were sticky from all the wings and beer. Felt bad for my co workers who had to constantly touch their screens with filthy fingers.

    Even though I only have a 7024 and have never used a 7022, I would choose the 7022 over the 7024 because of the following reasons:

    1. Capacitive (multi-touch) screen
    2. Android 2.3
    3. Seems easier to root/get new software on (i.e. Skype)

    I got the 7022 from amazon ($173.05) and while I was at it I got the HDE 7 tablet stand with USB keyboard ($17.61) and a 32GB microsd card ($43.39) so with shipping the total was around $245.00. The market was easy to install (you don't have to root to do it) then install flash 10.3 and netflix from the market. I've had mine for about 2 weeks and this thing is great, with wi-fi at home and work. The only complaint is battery life only about 4 hours watching videos, but since I an almost always near a plug-in, I can live with the battery life.
