I got mine 2 weeks ago (MadeInChina.com, Shinystore, $188, free shipping) and have been playing with it. So far, it works as advertised. Battery life (3-4 Hr) less than I like, but I am spoiled.
Yesterday, it did an Android 2.1 update. (Yes, it wiped everything...settings...apps because I don't yet know how to preserve those) and two things happened.
1) The Android Market Skype app now works. This is good.
2) It required that I re-register. Problem is that the 20 digit number on the sticker is now illegible. I can only make out about 7 of them. Anybody know how I can get my number, or a new number. I don't even know who I am registering with. or why.
Thanks for any help.
One of my students purchased one through Androidtime and got the protective cover with a keyboard in it. He gives it positive marks.
