    Samsung Chipset Freehand Writing Android Tablet
    (I don't know what the actual name of the tablet is)

    Looks nice to me - I'm looking for something students can use - so the fact that it has a resistive screen and comes with a stylus is actually a plus (so students can draw and write formulas and graphs)

    and the order page
    Android 2.2 Samsung S5PV210 ARM CortexTM A8 MID 8 Inch Tablet PC Support Web Flash 3G HDMI - US$ 215.00

    although he also links to this other rockchip one for $188

    Both tablets are nice... but opt for quicker shipping... it will be worth the extra price.

    I am waiting on mine right now. But I oppted out of buying from the two sites that advertise it for 215... they both got horrible reviews. shipping timeframe issues. Not getting what they ordered, and issues returning. I ordered from sobuying. It cost a little more and I had to pay for shipping (Hopefully feverost is right about the upgraded shipping cost cause I did) But sobuying got great reviews. I would personally pay more for better service. Good luck

    Please let us know how it turns out! I've been trolling a bit to see if anyone had ordered one from somewhere other than merimobiles.com. I just spoke to pandawill.com via their live chat about the differences in their TMD 8" MID Android 2.2 Samsung SP5V210 and the Herotab MID816 found on merimobiles.com. Here was the short converstaion:

    Chloe 12:50:38
    Hello, Welcome to Pandawill! Anything we can do for you? :)
    Me 12:51:05
    Yes I'm curious which color TMD 8" MID Samsung Sp5v you have currently in stock
    Me 12:51:38
    I'll be ordering one this week and don't want to order anything you don't have ready to ship out
    Chloe 12:52:22
    hi, both color is ok
    Me 12:52:41
    ok so black & white are both readily available?
    Chloe 12:52:53
    yes
    Me 12:53:13
    Ok. and I know that its Not the Herotab MID816, but are the specs the same on both devices?
    Chloe 12:53:59
    which one ?
    Me 12:54:18
    TMD MID Samsung sp5v and the Herotab MID816. are the specs the same?
    Me 12:55:01
    You have a great price, just wondering if there are any big differences
    Chloe 12:58:22
    yes
    Chloe 12:58:26
    1 second
    Chloe 12:58:29
    let me check
    Me 12:58:45
    ok
    Chloe 12:59:49
    hi
    Chloe 12:59:57
    what is "Herotab MID816"?
    Me 13:00:31
    it's basically the same tablet i believe
    Me 13:00:40
    found on merimobiles.com and various other sites
    Me 13:01:13
    wondering if you know of any major differences
    Chloe 13:01:37
    yes
    Chloe 13:01:41
    this is same product
    Me 13:02:12
    ok fantastic
    Me 13:02:19
    thank you very much for your help!


    They take awhile to respond sometimes so I tried to keep this as short as possible. I've been seriously considering trying pandawill's version. If anyone has ordered one I'd love to hear a review.

The unit came with a lot of apps installed that are giving me an error message when I try to run them for ex. "The application Gmail(process com.google.android.gm)has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again" no this has happened on several of the apps I have tried to use that came pre loaded. any suggestions?

    I'm not sure that gmail is functioning yet. Youtube has to be reloaded/reinstalled in order to work. If you check the programs - installation - root thread they explain how to force over .apk files. There is supposed to be a firmware upgrade this week. I'm currently in live chat with merimobiles waiting to see if they have an official date for it's release.


    EDIT: I'm not sure if that Programs-Applications-Installation-Root thread is here or at SlateDroid? I've been getting lost in the forums lately. Merimobiles says they're receiving more Herotabs on Friday :) and I find myself too scared to order from PandaWill (No offense if they follow this forum) but harsh reviews can really put me off, but i Did use their livechat and they were helpful. theirs is the same tablet, but only a 1.3MP camera from what they told me.

    UPDATE: Here's my short convo with merimobiles.

    Please wait for the next available representative…
    Steve: I was told that you expect more Herotab MID816's in at the end of this week. I can't currently order one because it always says out of stock & won't put it in the cart. Will I be able to order one and be Sure i'll get one in this next shipment?

    You are next in queue. We will be with you in just a moment.
    Admin: hello
    Admin: Ye sir
    Admin: they will be back on stock on friday
    Steve: ok and will i be able to order one? like they're not pre-ordered or anything?
    Steve: been waiting to get one of these, just want to make sure i wont have to wait for Another shipment
    Admin: you will be able to gt one sir
    Steve: fantastic. and is there a definate date of the release of the new firmware for it?
    Steve: i follow the forums alot and keep seeing a mention of a firmware update sometime this week? was wondering if there's an official date
    Admin: Not official but we will have it by the end of the week
    Steve: ok, i can deal with that, since I won't be orderig til friday i assume it'll be ready by the time i actually get the tablet

    I heard about the firmware update in another forum. But no one has been able to tell me how to obtain the update. Is there a website i can go to to download it? How does it work?

    Actually,Samsung S5PV210 is 1GHz. Samsung Tab adopts the CPU. the speed is very quick than Rockchip and some others. it's ok if it's really Android 2.2 OS. I think it's resistance display. if it can make call would be better.

    the firmware still hasn't released yet. Merimobiles told me they expect it at the end of the week (probably around the same time they receive their new shipment of herotabs) and it will be posted on their website merimobiles.com - Slatedroid members will also be posting it in their forum if merimobiles takes it down.

    i'm not sure exactly how the installation of the new firmware goes, mainly because i don't have my tablet yet, but i'm sure the forums will provide painless instructions on getting yourself updated.

    How about it "Feverhost" Super Moderator. I read somewhere that Now Supplier jerked you around too. You said in one of your post that you would put a ban on them. How about it. Isn't it time we tell Mr. Yan Liu of Now Supplier that we all have had enough. We need to help folks not get ripped off. Please reply

    I got one today.
    Delivery was just under 2 weeks - not sure if direct links are allowed, so I sorry if
    I break any rules Wholesale New arrival 8inch Samsung Android 2.2 S5PV210 ARM CortexTM A8 MID Tablet PC Flash 3G HDMI

    not had a play yet as technically its a present for my stepdad, but im sure I'll get a play later to set it all up, etc.

    had a little look & the screen response is very quick. WIFI found my network with ease & the few programs I did launch seem to load quickly.

    I wish they made these with capacitive touch, I'd get one for myself then - though the screen is easily big enough not to want/need to zoom in & out on things.

    oh & the firmware page thing says the model is SEC_SMD210
    The manual is in english & came with a UK plug for me

    Here is another one. I was not sure what to call this one as it did not look like the other two Aishuo A816 tablets I have seen, however when I received this unit, it was indeed labeled Aishuo A816 on the back:

    - Aishuo A816 (8 inch):

    I bought it from a seller on Ebay. Here is a YouTube video of this tablet:



    So far, I really like it...fast, responsive. Came with Market preinstalled!

    Hi -- I have the White one too. The White is not Easy to get. the main 8 inch version (I call the leafTAB-816, but also known as Herotab816, MID816 etc....) is black. You could wait a while for white. That's what I only list Black , so I know no one will buy and have to wait a long while - or end up not being available.
