I opened it up after work. It came fully charged, so I have played with it a little while configuring. IMMEDIATE FIRST IMPRESSIONS: - On screen images get that oily/shiny look at certain angles, although the Coby intro video played w/o any issues. During video playback, that shiny effect did not seem evident - Hardware buttons are indeed very sensitive. On a couple of occasions I hit the back button while trying to input text. This is something that will be gotten used to. - It's big. Not unwieldy big, but big. In comparison to the iPad2, it definitely feels a little more cumbersome. It's just shy of 11 inches tall. My plan of making a sweet Lifehacker style Moleskin cover just got squashed. - As far as fit and finish go, I am a little torn. On one hand, it definitely feels like a budget device. On the other hand though, I expected it to feel like much more of a budget device. There's definitely some give and some creaking when squeezed. The Nook Color has similar styling but feels a bit more solid (aside from the SD card door). - As stated by anyone who has used the x024 devices, the camera is really not much to speak of, but for videoconferencing it will certainly serve its purpose. - I immediately put the Amazon store on there and will be backing up the .apk's from my phone to carry over. I am unsure I even need to install the Google market at this point. I'll have more thoughts and observations once I play around some more. At this point it is too early for a verdict of any sort.
