    Got the Nook Color for my wife as a touchscreen ereader. It's light and has a responsive touchscreen. There's a debate about LCD backlit vs. Eink among ereaders which I'll avoid. But for the time-being, what makes it fun is:

    - beautiful color screen
    - books
    - great for magazines (Barnes&Noble), good web browsing too
    - games
    - email, calendar, etc.
    - and my favorite: movies :D

    Love how they say "Grade 'A'" and "Teir 1" parts. Fancy Feast is considered Grade "A", but it's still cat food.

    Thanks tipstir. I love unboxings, even when they're not mine!

    Now call me scrooge (and I know this has been debated) but tell me a meaningful scenario in which 1080p out is a feature people will use. As I've ranted before, here is the only one I can imagine:

    You're over at a friend's house, and say "Hey, let's watch that cool HD movie on my A7 that I just...er, um...obtained." You pull out the A7 and your HDMI adapter, plug in to his 60" flatscreen TV, and WOW it works.

    Seriously? How often will that happen? And if your friend already has the TV with HDMI input, he ALREADY has compatible devices...HD satellite/cable receiver, Bluray player, etc. Your cute but dinky little A7 looks like a toy in his home theater living room.

    The other scenario is you want to share your home movies or photo album. We all know that will last about 15 minutes.

    It's a cool feature. I just don't get it...

    Matt,

    I didn't buy for that feature. I had that already the Coby 7005, but that features is more for gaming or taking the tablet over a friends or family house to watch a HD movie on it. For gaming playing Angry birds or Rage of Thunder II on the device then watching on the HDTV 46" 1080p the tablet is your steering wheel. Again I didn't buy for that I got for the MPU, extra hardware CTS, RAM stuff like that.

    Shoot on my top of the line laptop it has LED soft touch controls with B-ray player and the Highest Res 1080p LED panel on it but I don't use the B-Ray player nor do I connect it via HDMI either. These are features that devices come with not going to say your going to use it.

    I have B-Ray 1080p HTPC on Quad core system connected to my HDTV from Sharp still I only use 1080p from Media Server once is a while. Still in a few years 3D HDTV will be cheaper then comes 1440p and then the Holographic HDTV.. But you seem to be saying gee why would you need these features and are you going to use them. That answer I can't give you as I don't know what mood I would be in to use such features. It's a matter of choice for one person and might be for you as what I am getting from your feedback replies.

    Why would someone need a tablet and why do you need 1080p on one? My answer is why not!

    Well the good news is that they are going to introduce multi-touch screens in 2011. I will be glad to wait until they do as my GTab and family of Archos Gen8 tabs will hold me over for a while. I would just love to have a Tegra 2 tablet in a 7" form factor due to the enhanced portability offered over the 10" GTab.

    Waitwaitwait. Here I am lusting over your 10" tablet, and you're saying it's a bit hard to tote around? Talk about green grass...

    It's not HARD to tote around. It's just that a 7" one would be easier.

    Well that's good by than better tablets with more RAM and storage and tap into 64GB SDXC. I might just keep A7 and another two others coming here also. A7 I'll see.. BJs return policy for online it has go back online so not back to BJs club. Hope this one works better than all of the 14th tablets I've used and owned so far. Yes 14!

    Wait for the roll-up bend | zoom type being tested in China.. Just roll-up the screen like a poster and go.. Then you can use 10 or 14 or higher whatever you need.

    CM3 Benchmark shows this to be 7,165 which beats the Archos using Z4Root to 1GHz at 5,336 was the last tested rate. A7 is set to 1000MHz max and 216MHz min which isn't that good and would explain for the sluggish performance. CTS feels like RTS and the 1-1 pinch zoom is all over the place. I see it suffers from the same effect that Coby MID7005-4G when it displays web site compared to Maylong M150.

    A7 to the left and Maylong M150 with RDX Turbo Rooted ROM v1.5

    A7 WiFi using my trick to get it that high (no it's not on top of the WiFi Router)

    WiFi complaints on the A7 can be solved but what can't be solve is the issues when you type on CTS if it's really a CTS. Wacko keys which is bad. This company reports a fixes to me it's like going back to the Gentouch 78 saga!

    On more test was done on the WiFi Link Speed was 36mbps out of 54mbps from 802.11g. It still was able to handle streaming Video over the WWAN to WLAN.

    I currently owned a g-tablet and it is a 2 points multi-touch. It means that if you have 3 fingers touching the screen at the same time, and moving two fingers to move zoom in/out. it will not work. anyways, the 2 points touch is very good.. and very responsive.. in browsers or other apps like Angry bird..
