    I ended up selling the vtab the other night. It had a few to many bugs to keep it. Couldn't get a screen lock widget that would bypass it. It would randomly come up with the black v screen while using it. This resulted in wifi disconnecting, losing whatever I was working on. From what I could tell, it was rebooting. Got tired of waiting for honeycomb. Plus other rooted guys are having issues with getting it to work, didn't want a bricked unit. I'll still be around though. I'll be keeping an eye on the vizio section still. If I can get one with the update and the bugs worked out I might get one for the gf. As for myself I just picked up a 16gb toshiba thrive with the toshiba case stand and a zagg screen shield for $300. The guy I got it from on craigslist just bought it recently from best buy for work but he can't use it for things he needed to do. Good for me though. I was going to buy a refurb for $250-280 online. Only played with the thrive for bout 2 hrs but i'm really liking it. These full size ports are great. Hope all you guys that have been so helpfull here have better luck than I did. Thanks guys

    Goodluck with the Toshiba! I looked at the 7 inch thrive but I am in love with the 8 inch screen and the HC update of my Vtab. Again congrats on the new tablet!

    Thanks guys. I feel I got a pretty good deal. I have noticed that there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of action in the thrive section. Guess we'll see have to see what is in store for use with the release of their new tablet. I just felt that with the release of honeycomb and a new tablet coming out, it feels like there's little hope for ics w/out rooting.

    rumor has it that a nexus tab will be coming out soon for around 150-250 if your thinking of ditching the vtab I would wait for more word on that.
