My wife's Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, running an outdated version of CyanogenMod (the maintainer bailed, quite some time ago) looks like it's dead. She remembered seeing a Costco advert for a clearance on a Lenovo tablet running "Pure Android." So last night I began my research. Found...
Executive Summary: Google won't "encourage" suppliers of devices using its Android OS to update relatively recent devices and neither they, nor Google, want anybody else to do so, either. Just makes you want to go right out and pay several hundred dollars for an Android device that will be...
I have a different solution: Don't sign up for Google+.
Google is annoying me anew, lately. "Google Services" on my handset occasionally goes wonky for a day or two and starts consuming battery like there's no tomorrow. So I've been whacking Google bits right-and-left. I'm down to syncing...
I don't know the CM universe well... or at all, actually. My Samsung GT2 is running it, but that's about it. So, with that caveat out of the way: I've been following the Samsung GT2 and HTC Sensation forums over at CM. Well, was, anyway. I stopped. Nothing to follow. Was watching the...
Not a complaint, mind you, but more an observation: Looks like all, or nearly all, of the supported devices are newer ones. Arguably: It's the older devices that need CM most, as both the manufacturers and wireless companies tend to abandon them.
I think that's bigger than I'd want in a tablet. I think I've hit my limit with a 10" tablet--and even that sometimes seems too big.
I had, still have, actually, an 8" tablet. I wouldn't want to go any smaller. Even then: Going back-and-forth between that and my 10" tablet: The 8" seems...
I've had the best luck with Motorola Bluetooth earpieces, from a functionality standpoint. Unfortunately, the first pair my wife and I had died early deaths. But the HX550 I have now is holding up.
I suppose you mean "without an extended mic boom?" A Bluetooth earpiece w/o a mic wouldn't be...
No clue, Serla. You could try a factory reset (save any data you have, first, and you'll have to re-install, re-configure everything afterward), but this is kind of sounding like a hardware problem, to me.
If you get your apps from the app store, only apps that have "history" and your device isn't rooted: Is such a thing actually necessary? My wife and I have been using tablets for two years, without issue. Our handhelds came with Lookout, so I've left it.
FWIW: Out of idle curiousity I just checked Vizio's Facebook page. Scrolled down maybe a half dozen of so pages. No mention of any Android tablet. All I saw was MS-Win stuff.
Glad I didn't wait any longer.
Sorry you're having the problem :( My Anker Bluetooth keyboard just paired-up and worked. I presume you went through the re-pairing procedure?
Uhm... waitaminute... 10.2? 10.2 isn't a stable release. Why are you doing that?
They also show it, or they were, on their web site. Last I knew, tho, there was no product or any product launch announcement.
They did the same thing last year: Showed a tablet at CES, then never produced it.
I tired of waiting for something that might never come and bought another Samsung...
When my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 ran out of battery while I was reading a book, one night, I put it on the charger and grabbed my VTAB1008. When I'd last been using it, it had gotten real slow. So I wiped it, installed only Moon+ reader and Dropbox, and was able to pick up right where I left off :)...
