    Paul no need to Sync Gmail with your blackberry, Gmail account will remain in the tablet and will sync anything you use on Gmail on the web, however, if you do not use Gmail for nothing, then that account will be used only for access to Market, so no need to do anything with it, just use it to login into Google Market on your tablet and to download applications. Remember, Google is web based and you do not need to sync anything on your computer if you do not want to.

    Now I just hope that eMatic releases an Android 2.3 Rom. Well, it is just a hope.

    I thought I'd post my further adventures with this device, untechnical as they may be.

    I've downloaded several other browsers, mainly because AOL's mail doesn't show up in the default and the email application is very primitive. Foxfire wouldn't complete the install at all. Opera downloaded and installed but would never come up. Skyfire is pretty good; Dolphin a bit better (it has tabs). None will open local HTML files, which is a nuisance. UPDATE: It turns out that some of the file explorer options will bring up a list of the available browsers when you click on an HTML file; so you can open these WITH the browsers, you just can't open them FROM the browsers.

    Dropdown menus that work on the desktop only sometimes work on the device. Since my own site uses these, I may have to rethink the design a bit.

    I seem to have trouble with a few things that should work. I downloaded two different tools for putting the device in Airplane mode. Both show that it is, but when I check the usage bar, Cell still predominates. Maybe because of prior usage?

    It's certainly annoying that Android itself tells you to use Airplane mode but doesn't tell you how to enable it.

    I downloaded Swype, a keyboard which is supposed to speed up input by letting you swipe from letter to letter. I get the little line that traces the swipe, but no text on the screen. On the other hand, it's a slightly bigger keyboard so I use it nonetheless. It also has a microphone icon on it (not on the images on their site) and I've read it enables speech-to-text. But so far clicking the icon seems to do nothing.

    Certainly, if it were possible to connect an external keyboard, I would. When I move to the next level, that capability is one thing I'll watch for.

    Locus, which is supposed to save on-line maps to the device, is poorly documented. It does indeed claim to be downloading a certain number of tiles for a given map, but then they are blank when I check the maps.

    I bought a 16gb card (even though 4 was plenty for me) and it too wouldn't stay in. But since I pushed it hard and then put some black tape over it, it seems to have stayed in (I'm not planning to take it out for any reason, so this isn't a major inconvenience).

    Web access is screwy sometimes. Yesterday I had full Wifi access ("Excellent", said Android) but couldn't get AOL mail to fully load. Generally, the access is pretty good.

    Video quality is pretty good, seems faintly distorted when you pan too fast.

    The screen is great in mild light, but even in shadow when the day overall is bright, it's a bit hard to read.

    This is very much a tool for me, like a point and shoot camera. I just want to input text, read PDF's, check mail and sometimes browse the Web. So I'm not planning to root it at this point. On the other hand, speech-to-text would be cool and if I understand properly that's built in to a later Android release, so I might be tempted to upgrade later.

    It seems to me I saw a music editing tool somewhere too for Android. Might dig that up, so I can edit some files on the go. It also occurred to me I can use it for GPS in the car, not that I tend to use that much, but searchable maps are nice to have on the go, for sure.

    There's my own experience. Very basic, but you never know what info might be useful to someone else.

    The information and links in this post pertain specifically to the following tablet:

    Ematic eGlide
    Model Number: MID
    Android Version: 2.1
    Firmware: V1.02_14.13-MC_EN-2011.01.13
    Kernel Version: 2.6.25_(V140_HY2_RHJ)
    Build Number: V0.18.ECLAIR.R.zmg.20101112.142908

    Please be certain that your tablet’s specs match those above before applying the information and/or the links from this post to your tablet!

    Note: Some of the following links have been previously posted; as a courtesy, I am posting everything in this single post.


    #1 Original factory-installed eGlide ROM
    Direct link to: eGlide.img

    Hi j16904,

    I know of the ROM you flashed to your tablet. I can confirm that Droidhound's apad710 is nearly identical to the eGlide; however the v.2 rom you flashed is not the most recent version of this rom. You can download version 3, posted by Droidhound this past week (3/12/11), here:

    apad710_froyo_v3.img

    Please compare your tablet with the specs for this rom:

    TR718D
    2.2.1
    Kernel 2.6.25 root@u2hpy#449
    Build: Froyo Beta 1.0 RK2818

    I have flashed v.3 to my eGlide and you'll be happy to know that the Market works and the Sensors are fixed too! However, it has been noted that the tf card shows as 0 capacity and 0 free in settings/SD card, it's not possible to move apps to the tf card or mount the usb card.

    Personally, I haven't had much time to test anything and am anxious to hear if wifi tethering works?! Would you be willing to check it out and report back? Or, if anyone else is interested and has time to check it out, please let me know what you find out!

    Has anyone tried connecting a USB keyboard to this device? Somewhere I saw that the company itself said this couldn't be done, but several articles suggest that Android itself supports this.
    I have to say, if it really is undoable, then I might have done better getting the Coby 7015, which does allow this. The biggest advantage the eGlide seems to have is access to the Android market, which hasn't proved a big deal for me. Oh, and if I understand the Coby manual properly, it doesn't have a trackball, which is also nice on the eGlide.

    I can confirm the USB keyboard works fine, I took my mac keyboard and connect to the tablet, went to settings, scroll down to USB Mode select, and enabled host mode. If it does not work the first time, just reboot the tablet with the keyboard connected and check if that usb setting is still enabled, it should work.

    Cheers!

    I concur--USB works fine if you are using the stock rom or the rooted rom I uploaded here http://www.mediafire.com/?e9njc094em7pwb6.
    However--if you have flashed the apad710 froyo version 3, the usb and tf card aren't fully functional.

    Glad to hear it :)
    All I need to do now is install adhocable/files and get wifi tethering working with my Droid Eris and I'll be all set. Are you able to tether?

    If u use Android market, it will not give u full access of market (many apps r not accessable -apad710 froyo version 3),also usb drive is not accesable.
    but i think this is beta version of android 2.2.1 (beta) and although it is 2.2 still flash does not working

    I believe the apad710 froyo v3 rom is just one more advance in Droidhound's pursuit to upgrade his tablet from android 2.1 to android 2.2. By no means is it 100 percent working and I imagine he will continue to make changes and release new roms. I provided the link as and option for anyone who was using Droidhound's version 2 and didn't know it had been updated or anyone wanting to check out Froyo on the eGlide.

    Personally, I am using the rom I made of the factory-installed image with permanent root. I am going to update it with Adhocable so I can wireless tether to my phone. Once I do that I will post another rom or instructions for anyone interested.
