    After cracking the resistive touch pad on my SYNET7LP/SYTABEX7, I contacted Digital Gadgets.
    They suggested a USB mouse through the host port.
    To my amazement, it works fine.
    Thank You- Digital Gadgets

    Wonder if that will work on my 10" SYTAB?

    You'll have to try to find out.
    The SYTABEX7 has a resistive touch screen which tends to select when you attempt to scroll.
    The mouse is slower for text entry, but better for browsing.
    (It's also a last resort if you crack the screen as I did)
    My OS is: 2.2.1-7b1
    Kernel : 2.6.32.9 neville@neville-desktop#3
    The mouse recognized is a LOGITECH G1 M/N:BP82
    Good Luck

    I y hooked up a cheap wireless mouse in my 10" tablet in the upper usb port and works great. Makes browsing much easier! Thanks for the idea. I also use the shapewriter keyboard . apk and works much better than Swype.

    That's quite a claim.
    You are saying that a SYTABEX10 recognizes a keyboard in the host port?
    I will look into "Shapewriter keyboard.apk" and get back.

    I just used a mouse, not a keyboard, I use ShapeWriter for all my phones and tablet to do my keying . I also found that the mouse works in both of the usb ports on the SYTAB10. I also got a toshiba touch screen pen for $9 thatd doesn't scratch the screen and works great on the tablet. My tablet has replaced my lap top as my device of choice to take to my wifi coffee shops and great for watching Twit Tv.

    At home I generally use the SYTAB10ST with a $15 USB keyboard/case and $5 finger mouse. The mouse is just cheap Shenzen junk but the kb/case turned out to be a perfect fit and seemingly decent quality.

    Shapewriter is beyond me, and Twit Tv tries to download but can't.
    Most wizards recognize the SYTABEX7/SYNET7LP as an iphone2.
    They won't install anything due to agreements with Apple.
    I'm looking at apps, but it's still new to me.
    Thanks for the guidance.

    Jatke,
    Thank you for the tip.
    Mousing for text entry is slow.
    I look forward to trying it.

    Try the Pocket Casts app for Twit Tv, works great on my SYTAB10.
