    Flytouch 3 Labeling by Vendors
    Until further evidence has been provided, all posts regarding the so-called Flytouch 3 belong in the Flytouch II area.

    Gome has not yet released the Flytouch 3 yet. This labeling is confuses consumers and should not be adopted.

    The shanzhai debranded Flytouch II is a product based on the original Gome Flytouch 2. I appears that there are vendors labeling a RAM upgraded variant (512MB) as the Flytouch 3. This is highly misleading, because Gome is not going by this branding. The 512MB version cannot be considered as a new generation of the Flytouch line of Android tablets, and as such should still be referred to as the Flytouch II, or Flytouch II with 512MB.

    The manufacturer name for this new product is the SuperPAD II.

    Incomplete Adobe Flash Support
    Claims about Adobe Flash support are partially false, because it does not meet official Adobe requirements for the operation of the full-version of Adobe Flash. The processor in the Flytouch II generation by Infotmic is based on an older ARM11 architecture. But the manufacturer claims to be working with Adobe for a workable version of Adobe Flash for use on the SuperPAD II.

    You will not be able to update Adobe Flash from the Android Market

    Gome has not actually released a Flytouch 3. Since it is actually seems to be a registered trademark in China, it is important for us to try to clear up the confusion.

    Gome probably will make their actual Flytouch 3, but their branding will be damaged as a result of these irresponsible vendors. Imagine if a manufacturer added a USB port on the PS3 and started to call it the PS4.

    The original generic Flytouch IIs are not actually Gome branded. But they are at least hardware equivalents, and should be identified as such.

    One of the boxes the device ships with actually says Superpad II. If Flytouch II variant 2 is too long of a name to use, we should probably accept the name of the Superpad II as well.

    the site were I purchased my flytouch2 claims to be selling the flytouch3 just this week but I looked in the package contents and it says flytouch2? Also the variant discovers firmware in a different fashion. The firmware updates consist of two files but the firmware disvery file is actually a zip file containing the usual updateing firmware files. So I agree it isn't a flytouch3. I've also iffy about the os itself. Wondering if not even froyo?

    There are more than a few variants of the Flytouch II. When straight from factory, they run 1001, and are supposed to be flashed to the newer 1170 by the vender but some aren't. I think that the newest is 1561 but I could be wrong. Please note that I am talking about FACTORY roms and not CUSTOM roms.

    What about the advertised 512mb 4GB Flytouch 3 Superpad 2 tablets? They arrive in a white box with SuperPad III on the side. What is it? simply a Flytouch 2 with 1 tf & android 2.2??

    Overall I'm very unimpressed with the unit. Only has a 3000mah battery..doesn't support Flash Player 10.1... Seller sent me a file but it's flash version 10.2

    Android System info tells me this:
    Android Version: 2.2
    Release Code name: REL
    API Level: 8
    CPU ABI: armeabi
    Hardware: imapx200
    Devic: WWE10
    display: FRF85B

    Processor: ARMv6-compatible processor rev 5 (v6l)
    data max: 0.92 gb/free:807mb
    total ram: 373mb 218mb free

    I have mixed feelings about various 10" tablets. The ZT180 was ok, the Froyo Flytouch 2 was better & my latest purchase Flytouch 3 / superpad 2 is complete garbage. Only has a 3000mah battery, doesn't fully support the market & hdmi out is giving me audio problems.

    Does anyone know where I can buy a real flytouch 3, with a real 6400-8000mah battery?
    I don't mind a few issues to fix, but I want something that stays powered on without being plugged in, I want something that will actually play movies on my HDTV & I prefer something that REALLY supports flash player.. ALL of the 10" tablet sellers on the net claim their android 2.2 device supports flash,hdmi, marketplace etc...they forget to mention the features aren't fully supported!

    Doesn't have to be a flytouch 3.. just a decent tablet in the $200 range.
    Is there a thread already created with user experiences for the various 10" versions on the market??

    Thanks Ftanl
