Just picked up two of these and I'm impressed. I bought it as a eReader with multimedia capabilities and so far I really like the unit. I think some of the bad reviews come from people expecting an iPad type of device for $250, which isn't going to happen. I've been experimenting with different apps and such, trying to see what all will work. Working so far: Skyfire 3.0 Dolphin browser HD Yahoo Mail Wouldn't work: Android (Google) market GMail ES File explorer Angry Birds AWD Launcher (worked to some extent, but was FC'g all the time, removed it) That's all I can recall right now. I know a bunch of these sold over the holidays, hopefully with many of them now out there the dev's will start working on updating the OS.
