    I guess I will soon be a proud VIZIO VTab owner. Just odered a reburb from Newegg. Not a bad deal ($199 with the $49 folio free). Looking for to the possible honeycomb update that was hinted at in a thread here. Been reading all the good tips.

    Thanks
    Jim

    Just wondering. Why not update it? That was the fist thing I did when I bought mine around Xmas. It has worked fine so far.

    Sorry I'm late. Welcome! I've opted not to root, and stay stock. Waiting for ICM, this month anyone?

    IceCreamSandwich4.0 (not ICM) does not look like it will be released any time soon, Vizio support has been wispering that they would be releasing Honeycomb 3.? . No word on which Honeycomb release it will be, or how much Vizio will cripple it like they did with Gingerbread 2.3.2.
