    Got my Cruz Reader. Functional, but a little slow out of the box. Overall was satisfied. Upgraded firmware, and much better. OO Much faster and wifi seems better. Battery lasts pretty good. Easily can go for all day without recharging. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it, considering the low cost.

    Do you have the T103? Mine plays mpg and avi files with no problems, really clear. I simply connect it to the PC, and copy the files onto the sd card...

    I think that the mic is not there, just the hole.. I bought it following the specs in Tigerdirect and their own manual, which say that there IS a mic.....but I don't think that the mic is there..I didn't open it yet to verify this. The CPU HAS mic capability in the audio block, so if there is no mic, something can be done.

    I installed a previous version of skype, but it crashes after the login. Skype says : Upgrade to DROID 2.2 ...yeah....so easy!

    Because the cpu is MIPS, looks like there are no plans in the horizon to port newer versions of DROID to that platform ...we are stuck on 2.0 (2.1?).

    I think that the performance of the device is not so bad....just the software and the apps....

    Bought a very lightly used R102 off eBay for $45. Very happy with it so far. Good battery life, even with wifi turned on. Exterior design is nice. . . sized right, weighted right for a "book" and appears to be well constructed.

    Minor gripes: memory layout (half of memory used as an internal SD Card? C'mon!). Touchscreen a little difficult to navigate in eBook software (right/left page flips) but that might be a calibration thing.

    HI!

    I bought my Cruz T408 (which runs on Gingerbread 2.3) almost a year ago and was happy using it as e-reader & to check e-mails & view Live Streaming on my favorite radio stations. All is well until I discovered that Arabic (that's my mother tongue) is not displayed properly -unless it's in pdf. About a month ago, Sprint sent an upgrade to my Samsung Galaxy SII phone which also originally had Gingerbread. Lo & behold, the problem with Arabic was fixed with the Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade on the phone. So, I decided to install it on the tablet as well because the screen size is more readable than the smaller one of the phone.

    I'm a PC user and had very little exposure to Linux/Android. But I found by googling the subject that I need to root it before I can do anything with the OS, and found several useful articles & a YouTube video to show how to do that. Now that I have done that using Gingerbreak.apk, I have SuperUser, ClockWorkMode Recovery, & the Google Market & downloaded ROM Manager, Eoot Explorer & other useful utilities. I also installed apps like Skype, eBay, FaceBook, etc...

    My prblem now is finding an ICS ROM that would work with this tablet as my understanding is that not all work for every model. This tablet seems to have a Samsung 1 GHz CPU-S3C6410 1009 ARM or Cortex A8. Can someone tell me which ROM to use without ruining the tablet?

    Thanks.
