OP Updated, STOCK ON THE WAY!
Link: Malata Zpad ( updated Mar. 25, 1366 X 768 TN screen change) -
I have PM'd OP about this. This seems legit, as evidenced by the lower Neocore score and the reported resolution.
Portrait mode is not sucking. Can someone here verifiy that this LCD looks different than the one gTablet when in portrait mode?
Thanks for sharing the info. Good news!
Here is hoping that iCooley makes a Case/Handcarrier... looks exactly like what I want...
I was wondering where I could find (order) the case "The Click" for my gtab. Thanks in advance for your reply
Electroniccrap.com is the website
Is there such a thing as a USB charging cable that connects to the DC power input of the G-Tablet? I was thinking, because you can't charge via the USB port, that someone out there has created a cable that plugs into a USB computer or car charger port. Am I silly to think so? Or is it silly that no one has made such a thing yet?
Why do I want such a thing? I want to be able to carry my G-Tablet from home to work, and have the means to charge in my car or at my computer without having to carry the bulky AC adapter. There's gotta be something out there!
you should be getting about 8 hours battery use minimum out of the device, so you must have a REALLY long commute!
seriously, no on connecting that way. without wanting this to turn into a whole debate about USB charging, the issue comes down to the fact that USB simply cannot carry enough current to properly charge the battery system on a tablet. People can argue all they want about it, but physics is physics and in almost all cases it simply is not possible.
As far as I know... no tablet can charge via USB. Only the ones with a proprietary plug (ie. Nookcolor) can charge via USB. But its not plugging into a USB port on the device. Odd and convoluted but you get me?
What about those 2.5" portable drives that can get the extra power necessary from 2 USB plugs?
Also, a colleague of mine just today showed me some kind of adapter that he puts on the end of his USB cable that helps boost the power draw of the USB cable so that it can charge his iPad. The caveat is that he cannot simultaneously charge and communicate with his device.
+1 on the Arkon Stand! This works really well with the gTablet, both in landscape and portrait mode. Sturdy, light, adjustable, nicely padded. Perfect!
I picked up the Datel (Codejunkies) Wireless pad you linked, and while it works fine on my rooted Dell Streak, for some reason I'm having problems setting my keyboard choice to 'controller' with the Wiimotecontroller app. Everything seems to work fine until i'm actually asked to switch keyboard inputs, and then it just doesn't. Can I ask which firmware ROM you're using? Maybe you're using a different app? I'm so close to having the Ultimate Portable Gaming Rig!
I was using Vegan 5.1.1 when I was using the Datel Controller. Been trying to use a Classic Controller Pro lately on Harmony Gingerbread and its been giving me problems.
Switched to Vegan and everything works like a charm now. That Datel pad is about as good as anyone could hope for. It has the feel up front of an SNES pad, with Nintendo's perfectly designed D-pad. Its a bit bigger though, and has a comfy grip on the back that will keep my from getting blisters. I tried it with the NES, Genesis, and SNES emulators and its smooth as silk.
Does anyone know if the charger for the Viewpad is the same as the G-Tablet? I want a car charger and found a charger for the viewpad that is half the price of the one I found for the G-Tab. Thanks
