but how do i convert DVD's to MP4's....obviously a software is needed so which one do you recommend?
You'll have to trawl the net. I use VideoRedo and my video editor, Movie Edit Pro, but both of those are paid programs. I have yet to find a freebee that will convert a DVD to a MP4 or Divx in one go.

Do you think there is any chance that Skype or Pendo will do upgrades?
Don't know. On the Whirlpool forum, one of the Dodo techs said it was unlikely that the Pendo would be upgraded to Android 2.2, which runs Skype, apparently. Somebody else said that Skype worked if you went to the Skype website and started your session that way. Worth a try.

do you know if you can use any other wireless modem other than Dodo?
I don't think so. I have an older Dodo 3G modem (this Pendo one is a replacement for it) and the the older one won't work in the Pendo. I don't know whether it's a case of the Pendo not having drivers for the other modems or whether it is locked to Dodo. You could try putting your Optus SIM card in the Dodo modem (the back slips off in the direction of the arrows).
