    Hi, about 6 months or so ago, I bought something I shouldn't have, I bought a 'tablet.' It seems that Polaroid just wants to sell these things, and doesn't feel that they need to educate the buyer on how to use it! I am pretty much a computer illiterate, so I had assumed that there would be a user manual available; like there was with the first computer I bought. All there was is a Quick Start Guide, no user manual. I went back to the store and they said I have to download one from the Polaroid website. I've gone to the website, and all they have for download is the Quick Start Guide and the instructions for a 'hard reset' in case you lose your password (which we have!)."
    I have looked at several sites on the web, but there are no manuals to tell you how to use this thing. I've tried, on and off, to figure it out, a friend of the wife's has verified that it works OK, but that's for anyone but me!
    Is there a step-by-step instruction that anyone knows of that I can copy and paste and print off so that I can figure out how to use this boat anchor that sits on my desk doing absolutely nothing? I'd like to be able to go to Google and put in searches and go to other web sites, if possible. I touched the Google Chrome button, and the screen went dark (so I guess that's an off button!). If I touch the 'g' in the left hand upper corner, I get a white screen that says "say Hi Google" but when I say that nothing happens. I really would like to find some step-by-step instructions that I can print off until I can get better at this.

    Congrats on your "new" tablet.

    Most manufacturers just include a quick start guide, with their devices.

    Check out this thread for a generic manual that may help. You can also Google generic instructions, they're pretty basic with differences in the physical layout the only issue.

    Also, a quick trip to a local bookstore should net you with a handy all in one Android guide.

    Just what this old fart needs!
    Thanks, I'll give that a spin!!
