    After messing around for couple of weeks so far this are my stats:

    1. Battery life: With battery booster and underclovked to 576mhz I get 6hrs straight with wifi on.
    2. I have 33 installed apps, with 45.89Mb left.
    3. Boot time is 50 Seconds to usable screen and shutdown time is 5 seconds flat.
    4. My 3g speed is 2280kbps download and 1086kbps upload.
    5. Gps signal is stronger than my droid. Works inside my house.
    6. Screen is washed out under direct sunlight but usable. At least w/antiglare and at 100%.
    7. Very well built. Dropped it twice and nary a dent.
    8. Using Barnacle WiFi for AdHoc to my desktop has been rock solid. Wifi signal is very good. Equal, if not better than my Globesurfer III 3G router.


    Installed apps:

    1.ACV (comic reader)
    2.Accuweather Quick
    3.Angry Birds
    4.App Control
    5.Barnacle WiFi
    6.Battery Booster
    7.Blockerix (game)
    8.Chess
    9.CompTIA A+ Study
    10.Elemental Galaxy (game)
    11.EZ Pdf reader
    12.First Aid
    13.ICE (In case of emergency)
    14.iTriage
    15.LaPuta reader
    16.NDrive
    17.Pandora
    18.Perfect Viewer
    19.Plants Vs. Zombies
    20.Music Player Pro
    21.Pure Grid Calendar
    22.Quadrant Advanced (benchmark)
    23.SetCPU
    24.SkyFire
    25.SmartBar
    26.SpacePhysics (Game)
    27.SpeedTest (wifi/3g benchmark)
    28.Sudoku 10,000
    29.System App Remover
    30.Titanium Backup
    31.TuneIn Radio (Highly recommended for web radio!)
    32.YX Player
    33.Z4Root



    I have removed all emotion widgets except for the email one.
    I have removed the live wallpapers and related apps.
    Under-clocking has not affected any apps adversely.
    I love this sucker :)

    Edit: Corrected installed apps number and added list of installed apps.
    Also, would like other to post their experience.

    Great report from someone with more extended hands-on experience. Couple of thought:

    2. Any chance you could attach a list or partial list of the 34 apps? Would like people to see that there is really a lot of space for useful programs
    6. Have you tried an anti-glare screen cover? Made a ton of difference for me in my opinion

    Thanks!

    Done!

    Also, I do have an antiglare screen protector on. It also hugely reduces fingerprint smudges.

    Now I have to get back to do some mundane things like backyard work.
    Way to spend a (local) holiday :(

    Three Kings Day (Dia de Reyes)

    San Sebastian is actually a celebration that used to honor Saint Sebastian, but has changed over the years, and is now four days of partying, drinking and music in Old San Juan. This year begins from January 13 to January 16.
