Hi Swamp this place is an excellent source of information for many many android devices, the forum that relates to my phone "samsung galaxy indulge" has 13,575 threads... anything and everything I want to do or know is pretty much available there.
I am shopping around trying to find a cheap and "as big as possible" Tablet for my 84 year old Mom for Christmas, she has no clue about electronics or computers etc.. but I think I could set it up to check a gmail account and teach her how to view pictures that the rest of the family sends her.
Anyway I saw a low price on this model at Tigerdirect.com and my natural response was to check forums here to see what people think....well there is a whole 3 threads (including yours I think) in this forum....so its not a very popular device. That doesn't mean it isn't good or it doesn't function, it just isn't popular with the people in "the know" who modify ROM's or other software that make this place something special.
I have been involved in computers and networking for years so all of this comes easy to me. Just from what you said about wifi etc... it sounds like the whole thing is a new experience for you. You really don't need a device specific forum to help you out, you need more of "I am new to" or "basic functions of Android devices" type of thing.
I don't know if they have general android areas here or not, I really have only been to one specific area(2 including this one) and the first one gave me more info than I could ever use about what I was looking for.
No threads or members to this area doesn't mean the tablet isn't good...it's definitely not top of the line but then again you could buy a $1000 tablet but you wouldn't use 80% of its options for a long time until you learn as you go.
If you do come back and read this post I hope you can find something just on the android software...that will help you out more than anything else.
good luck and enjoy your tablet
