    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    I use the ScreenD apk. there are others. There are both prototypes and now available A81 models with G-Sensors. If I were considering an alternative 7 inch right now,it would be one of the A81 with a G-Sensor, an X5A-G, or an Archos 70. But that just shows my familiarity with the units I have now.

    Good info here.
    I've started using Wi-Fi Switch to control the wireless radio on my Haipad m701-r.

    I haven't found a utility or widget that will successfully toggle the wireless radio automatically on hibernate and wake. -THAT would be ideal.

    I would like the same. I would just be happy to tap on the icon at the top to enable/disable. I am sure there is one, but I have not found it yet.

    Maybe you can use 'Locale' an app which can swith on and off base on your settings.

    Chuck - does your particular tablet have a microphone? Not all of them do...

    Hi there,

    I am a seller of Tablet PC's and have noticed that customers are complaining about the Battery draining out quickly, is there anything they can do to make it last longer? Also, thank you for the information about not draining the battery fully. It explains why the Tablet PC's sort of die once theyve completely drained.

    Thanks in advance

    Did you buy a tablet or phone?
    Extra details would be good ie are you using the official market app etc?
    Hope I can help,

    I also use ATK, and people yell at me all the time. If it works for you, that is all that matters. I understand both arguments having a task killer and not having one. All that matters is, what is best for you :)

    Well, one thing for sure turn off wifi if you are not using it.
    And if possible turn the device totally off if not using it lets say for half hour our so because on stand by it still eats up battery. You should feel the different.
