    Minor Problems with Bluetooth Keyboard

    It is kinda medium size; wider than the a2109 in landscape by about an inch at each end. It is a Logitech Tablet Keyboard for iPad. I think they make one that is Android also but I am not sure. It works fairly well with the a2109. It has some keys that do nothing on Android and some things work...

    A2109 Screen, is it as bad as the reviews say?

    It's about the viewing angle. If I lay it flat on a desk out in front of me, it is very washed out. But just a slight tilt fixes that. Inside normal view angles it looks really good.

    Play Store has started draining battery lately

    Just another followup - it was definitely a hiccup that is now gone. I am back to around 5-8% drop per mostly inactive day. That's about 11 hours off the charger, 9 of which it is connected to WiFi, just getting flipped open to occasionally read mail, browse or whatever; probably only .5 - 1...

    Power related touchpad woes continue...

    I am not sure if luck has much to do with it. This is the only issue that has any importance to me where I am disappointed in the a2109. I understand we are talking about out of spec power, but the vast majority of devices handle it okay, including some others with sensitive capacitive inputs. I...

    Power related touchpad woes continue...

    Thanks for the details. I had a long road trip over the weekend and the kids used the inverter on DSes, iPod Touch and a Toshiba laptop with no problems. I understand that the technology has a general problem, but most things seem to handle it better than the a2109. Over the years, several...

    Play Store has started draining battery lately

    The clean up and/or power cycle worked! It only used 5% of the battery the rest of the day.

    Yes, I mean it was empty. I may try that again. I am not concerned about pirated videos hurting the tablets; that isn't the point. I won't argue why I have decided to obey the law, but that is my decision.

    How to disable the factory Accuweather on non rooted device

    The Accuweather application/widget included with the a2109 is now discontinued and a newer one has been released. It is not an upgrade. If you install it, you will end up with both the new and old running. If you updated the old one at some point, it made the Disable button disappear. So what...

    Play Store has started draining battery lately

    With all due respect, you need to read more of the threads. Everyone does have the problem with turning WiFi off. Or at least everyone running JB 4.1.1. Most people seem to be leaving it on all the time since it lasts several days suspended with WiFi on, or at least it did until something...

    Play Store has started draining battery lately

    I charge mine every night even though it usually doesn't need it. Lately it uses much more per day than it used to, and I mean 4 or 5 times as much.

    Play Store has started draining battery lately

    You obviously are not aware of the issue with turning off WiFi during suspend on an a2109 running JB 4.1.1. As crazy as it sounds, it uses more power with the WiFi off. There is a thread on this forum somewhere that details it; someone with various utilities tracked that down to being Play. The...

    I did the install from there and went through steps to get blucops, which is what I had read elsewhere would work. I had no luck with it. I tried some of the others and usually got time outs. A few times I would get offered what appeared to be pirated videos and did not try to stream those.

    Play Store has started draining battery lately

    It is mostly suspended. Normally I see the screen as having used 80% or more of the battery even if it was suspended most of the time. Not surprising since the drop is so low normally (under 5% during a work day) and the screen use if from intermittent use (so the screen would be 4% of that 5%...

    Play Store has started draining battery lately

    Just started in the last few days. I am on 4.1.1, unrooted. Battery has started dropping more during the day than it used to, as in 20% when it used to drop only 5%. I leave WiFi on all the time (I know about the drain when you turn it off) and I am usually connected. When I look at what has...

    If you get the free Hulu site to work, I am very interested in learning how. I read it is done on other platforms. I tried XBMC, and had mixed results. Sometimes zip files seemed to install okay but then the components inside did not appear as options.

    HDMI To TV

    I got a really cheap one and it worked fine. It's a digital format, so reasonably good connectors get just as good a signal as high end ones. Others have noted (as did I) that it can be a little tricky to plug it in to the tablet. Don't force it, but make sure you are getting it in all the way...

    First A2109 Brick? Please help to recover

    Did you see my earlier post on WiFi? I am running JB and wifi is working extremely well. Clocked the highest speed I have ever seen through my router earlier today.

    Wifi speed

    This was a pleasant surprise! It's faster than the PCs in my house.

    A couple of Android Questions.

    I figured it out. Power button first, by a slight margin; I wasn't getting the shot.

    A couple of Android Questions.

    So where does that screen shot end up? I took one and now I can't find it.
