    Joining the club...

    Picked up one of these this morning at Staples, and am currently waiting for it to charge. Seems to weigh about the same as my WPDN, but the size is relatively HUGE. I'm just not sure that I'm liking 10" form factor at all. Camera seemed to be Okish on the store's demo unit. TapnCrap was as...

    Nook Color

    Yep, also OMAP36XX, IPS 1024x600, etc. v. Freescale and 800x600... plus you're likely to see sales on it before long given the time of year, and hopefully some price wars...

    512MB, w/64MB pre-allocated for the GPU IIRC

    Viewsonic Android Tablet (G-Tablet) Android Market Demo

    Found one online through the outlet store site, c. 30m away. Plan to call them today to see if they actually have and if it's in the condition listed("new in box"). Android market: IME "official" market NEVER asks what type of device you, just infers it from Android...

    [MOD] Rooted PDN ROM (7/24, 8/6, 8/20 versions): Market, volume hack built-in

    With ver.3 back + soft button hack on my WPDN, everything is back to "normal". Market is installing again. As a precaution when I rolled back to ver.3 the final time, I installed OEM 8/20 fw first and THEN roebeet's ver.3. I had previously attempted rolling straight back from ver.4...

    [MOD] Rooted PDN ROM (7/24, 8/6, 8/20 versions): Market, volume hack built-in

    If you have a v1 board, which I am positive that I have even though the "new" serial # ID method "claims" that mine is the "B" v2 board, yet I still have the MAX present in dmesg, anyways... wasted several hours flashing in various combos and 3 or 4 various new google IDs, dalvik cache purges...

    what cpu

    Since he's only likely to use it in LCD display friendly lighting situations, may as well get him one of these... hard to beat the price if you can swing 20% off @ Bed Bath & Beyond or 30% + sale @ Kohls.. Read somewhere the other day that Walgreen's might be going to carry one of the lowend...

    what cpu

    For "pure" ereader use I'd suggest looking at something with e-Ink like the Nook, especially if your brother MIGHT use it in brightly lit/sunny areas as color LCD screens wash out in such condition and are, therefore, terribly difficult to see what is on the screen. Drawback would be...

    Global computer has the new Archos lineup 4 pre-sale.. WITH release dates

    Didn't quite finish reading the thread yet since at one point it was degenerating into a debate about storage cap. Anyways, as you can see on the OP linked site that the Archos 70 comes in two versions, one with 8GB internal plus external card expansion option, currently 32GB(spec supports more...

    what cpu

    Samsung s3c6410... basically same class as the Telechips TCC8902 in the GT, but with a poorer hw video codec, and, apparently, a hw bug in the 1st version hw released that causes stuttering in later firmware releases.... from what I gather video was OKish up to the July 24th fw, after which...

    Need help choosing a tablet!!

    Most likely it does NOT have 3D acceleration as NO Chinese tablet has 3D accel ATM, dunno if it's because the SoC mfg charges for access to the 3D kit or that their firmware guys just can't figure out how to make it work properly. OTOH since it IS Telechips based it WILL have the very best...

    Augen's new line up.. offcial press release on their news page...

    I saw that they had posted that the other day... (still check every once in a while for source or any other kind of updates) Pretty insane pricing on some of those for Augen... and they weren't exactly clear on enough of the specs... wonder how they plan to support those, or if they will...

    Need help choosing a tablet!!

    Archos tablets are WiFi only, as are (if you're in the US) Pandigital Novel(white one), Augen GenTouch78, Cruz Tablet(and Reader which is pretty much a white Novel), and most of the Chinese tablets are WiFi only as well. NONE of these ship WITH market access either, but most have some sort of...

    Standby Problem

    Apparently they never got low power mode to work properly with the GT, so I always just used to shut mine down when I was finished using it for a while, and let it re-charge until I was going to be using it again... might want to set it on a raised stand or something as mine got warmish while...

    [ROM] Gentouch78 Rooted v0.3 (for v1)

    Mine never went to 660MHz until AFTER I had put it to "sleep" first. i.e. right after boot it would max at 600, but AFTER it slept once it would start showing 660, IIRC you were the one who mentioned that "trick" to me tipstir... didn't seem to make much of a difference, but it's another...

    Thinking of purchasing...

    ...has a few flaws though it's HEAVY!!! it's a bit more awkward to handle than the GT video playback isn't nearly as good as the GT nor will it EVER achieve that level feels slightly slower than the GT even with it OCed to 800MHz good lots of modded fw source projects building...

    Thinking of purchasing...

    Hate to say it, but truly "safest" option is to get a WHITE Pandigital Novel from either Bed Bath & beyond or Kohls... mostly for easy returns and their liberal return/exchange policy... Augen seems to have dropped any meaningful support for the GT, nothing in a month now, and over...

    Some doubts

    Actually not only do you need Android 2.2 for flash, you ALSO need at LEAST a Cortex-A8 based SoC, so pretty much only witstech A81-E(slow flash perf, flakey fw, poor video playback, etc.) or Archos(43/70/101 not shipping yet) ATM. i.e. so for flash you're going to have to wait a bit... The...

    Some questions about the AUGen.

    been there done that tipstir with PR1ME terminals and HP Apollo... bottomline the GT is/was a joke and it was perpetrated on Augen by sly Chinese practitioners who left them holding the bag, but they phailed at due diligence so all I can say is: "oh well guyz"...

    Some questions about the AUGen.

    If the 70 was $199, I'd be there in an instant, but not at $279, nor can I justify the 43 @ $199... too small... but let me know if you see any info on the archosfans site about the new tablets having USB GPS drivers...
