Confused Ordered, Waiting............ still waiting..... impatient...

Ordered it on the 22nd of Jan.

Checking for curior every time the dog barks...

Moving house in 3 weeks, better be there by then...

Calling dodo in 28 minutes to see where it is...

Any problems, straight back in the box and canceling contract, through the ombudsman if I need to. $9.95 a month 24 month contract sounds too good to be true.

If it's all good, would like to see if I can use a second modem and bridge the internet connection for more reliable internet and speed. Don't think that will happen though.

Default pendo pad

got mine about 2 weeks ago and im very disapointed, the key pad is terrible everytime i touch a letter it comes up with the letter beside it. its incredibly slow and absolute rubbish. only good thing i can say is that its a handy size to put in my bag when i need the net on the go.
also came with a letter saying that the advertisements were wrong and it does not support android 2.2.

Hi all! New member here sorry for the long post.

I accepted delivery of a Pendo pad yesterday through TOLL couriers. I do not know how but the TOLL bastards smashed the pad while delivering it I immediately called Dodo for a replacement before I did anything else. The techie on the phone was very good and told me to return the pad ASAP. Within 1 hour I was at the Dodo hardware pickup office with the smashed pad. Dodo replaced the pad for me without any fuss. It took about 5 minutes to do that. I was so relieved. Excellent customer service Dodo! Thank you.

As for the pad itself, if you own or have ever used any Apple touch screen devices like iPhone or iPad then you will be bitterly disappointed with the resistive touch screen and my advice would be to avoid this pad or any cheap pads for that matter with similar screens.

However, if you are looking for a cheap pad to play around with Android, then this is a good device for that. It will be even better when somebody figures out root access

For the price, DO NOT EXPECT bells and whistles. It's basically just a big media player with simple network connectivity which can not play videos files off a network share and it is not a good device for many Android games either

BUT...the Pendo pad is very good for surfing the web and using internet apps like email, chat, ssh terminal, VNC, etc. The camera on it really does suck and is only OK for video chat. Also, I believe there is a fault with the audio drivers on the pad. The mic does not work on my pad and Google voice search spits the dummy when it tries to load. I'm betting this is why the Skype app does not work either because the sound recorder does register sound on the mic input but records silence...weird.

They must release a software update for this device otherwise it is doomed.

Cheers!

Default Pendo

Hi guys
Just received my Pendo Pad not long ago (from Dodo's $9.95 deal) and have been playing with it since then, seems quite simple but adequate for what I wanted it for eg: away from home needing internet access, saves taking my notebook with me & larger than using the mobile phone. I played around taking photos then near pulled my hair out trying to work out how the hell you delete them. Not even Google could help with this, so I done what I should have in the beginning, plugged the Pendo into my comp and deleted them that way, saves a headache Would love to be able to get a protective cover for it but again, can't find anything, I did click on another post which had www.Pendo.com and I arrived at a surfboard site Will see how this goes. One thing providers should do but won't (they lose too much money) and that's to show your data used etc, but that's a dream (or is it?)
cheers!

In the picture browser mode, longpress a photo and a menu with delete on it will pop up (not in the manual). Android seems to have quite a few longpress menus.

Try www.pendo.com.au (there's a manual there too!)

You're not dreaming: The Usage tab in your account on the dodo website tells you exactly how much data you've used.

7" inch epad apad irobot Screen Protector Tablet pc (eBay item 300522200984 end time 13-Feb-11 21:44:41 AEDST) : Computers

I've ordered one of these (not a pink one! )to see if it fits:
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Kindle-3-Amazon-Kobo-Leather-Case-Cover-Portfolio-PINK-/300523999296?pt=AU_eBookReaderAccessories&hash=ite m45f8a05040

Edit: this fits tightly but acceptably. Not a bad cover for the Pendo; all the buttons and the sockets are accessible.

There are folding cases that have a mini USB keyboard on one side and the pad goes on the other, but I can't find a link for them at the mo.

I've got an 8gb Class 6 card in mine and it works well. The brand is Team and I had trouble reading it in a USB-SD card adapter on my desktop computer and laptop; had to buy a proper card reader. As it turns out I needn't have bothered, as Windows Explorer accesses the Pendo directly. I never worked out whether Team was a dodgy brand or not.

Default Sdhc

Excuse my ignorance but what does a Class 6 mean? I have seen a few people mention Class but I have no idea. If you're saying a SDHC will work just fine, that would be great! I know I picked up a brand sdhc cheap at HB Hi-Fi for my new camera (latest DSLR) and it wouldn't work, hence my asking before buying thanks for all your help

Lawsy, the "Class" refers to the speed of the card. Apparently you need faster cards for gear that needs to write a lot of data quickly to the card eg video cameras (and maybe your SLR?). This probably doesn't apply here, as the writing speed to the card is not really a isue.

Mine's a Class 6 (the fastest I have seen is Class 10). You could try your brand-name card in the Pendo; the only issue for it would be for it to be able to read it fast enough eg movie playback. Someone on Whirlpool has used a Kingston 8gb card with no problems:

http://whrl.pl/RcCP4a

So I'd just buy one of those.

Default case

Hi again

thanks for the advice about the card, the case with the keyboard just arrived, snazzy little thing too, comes with a stylus as well (for the keyboard I am assuming) also has a stand at the back to enable you to prop the pad up, I got the one with the small usb plug and now I am thinking I should have got the larger one then used the adapter that came with the Pendo as it isn't reading the usb lead at all, when I go in and tick the USB bit, it completely freezes the pad up. Will try and find a double mini usb lead. But is is well worth the $'s.

Default Keyboard

Ok, I got the keyboard in the case working with the Pendo, seems it prefers the bottom usb slot for some reason... I also found out that when you put shortcuts on the screen, if you press & hold the item, a garbage bin appears on the right side and you drag it across to get rid of it, everyday is a school day with this thing

Cool

I have successfully flashed Froyo 2.2 on this device and discovered some very interesting things in the process.

Here is the reasons why the Pendo pad did not ship with Froyo 2.2 even though it has a Froyo compatible Rock Chips 2818 processor.

1) G-sensor does not work in Froyo at all because no drivers have been released for it yet

2) Audio is flaky but does work most of the time. Mic input only works with the sound recording app. Cannot use voice search, skype, etc same as with the software that ships with the pad. There appears to be a bug in the kernel.

3) OpenGL/3D graphics do not work most of the time. Many games and apps just crash or tend to run extremely slow. The device either has a cut down/low end graphics processor or again there are more bugs in the kernel.

4) Market does not work at first either but you can get it working with some system tweeking.

It is my belief that Dodo have been scammed by the manufacturer and distributor of these devices. Dodo was told and obviously believed that this device runs Froyo 2.2, hence why they advertised it as such without doing their homework first. Idiots!!

Like similar cheap pads from China, the manufacturer has illegally distributed a hybrid Eclair/Froyo system on the Pendo that was created with the Ecliar 2.1 SDK. This software is actually a hacked together test bed that has not been approved by Google for distribution to end users.

The device actually lacks many of the standard requirements to get Google approval in the first place. Dodo obviously do not know a thing about these devices and Android in general and could now be in serious trouble.

I am now wondering how long it takes before Google actually does something about all of this. Cheap devices like this coming out of China will damage Android's reputation beyond repair. I see a massive windfall for Apple if Google do nothing.

Adobe flash does not run on the Pendo pad because the processor is not supported by flash.

Also, it is very unlikely Adobe will ever support the Pendo processor because it has already been superseded by one that natively supports flash v10 and other codecs like H264, mp4, etc.

With all the subsequent problems you mentioned, I'm not sure I'd classify it as a success!

Re the lack of support for Flash, think on the positive side. We're in the same boat as millions of ipad users!

Yes you are spot on Headlight

It was only a success in that I managed to get Froyo to actually install and run on the device.

Android-S said in an earlier post, that it was not possible to run Froyo on the RK2818 processor but that is not true. The processor can run Froyo, but needs a kernel update for everything to work correctly.

I wish the kernel source was available for this device. That would make it possible to compile Gingerbread 2.3 for this device instead

Cheers!

I've had mine for a few weeks now and it's much what I expected. Not in the same class as my Samsung Galaxy S. Can't play angry birds or any other decent games, so it's really only useful for web browsing type things.

I am however impressed with the video playback. And the prepackaged video player is better than any I've found in the market place.

Problems:
1. for some reason it no longer charges via usb
2. seems the gyro has been installed upside down, works backwards for most applications.

Think i'll have to send it back.

Spotted in the manual on page 7!

I wouldn't have thought USB charging would work at all; the charger is 9v so a 5v USB connection isn't going to transfer many ergs. USB charging isn't mentioned in manual, either.

Might be poor QA. Mine works fine, although I do have to sometimes ask myself which way is up!

I haven't been able to play MPEG 2 files. Anybody else have any luck with them? It's good with 900kbps H264 and Divx50; only occasional stutters.

Hi all, I have just won an auction on Ebay for one of these Pendo Pads and it is for my sons birthday. I haven't paid for it yet (and yes I realize if I don't pay I will get left a negative feedback) but just reading this forum thread I'm starting to have second thoughts about it.

It doesn't allow Flash is that right? Does that mean that you can't play games, or many games, on it? Playing games on it will be the main reason for my son having it so I really need one that he can play games on, so would you really recommend this pad or should I opt for a different one?

It won't play internet Flash movies (apart from Youtube) and it won't run Flash websites like Moshi Monsters. I understand it needs (but probably won't be getting) Android version 2.2 to support Flash. It currently only has Android 2.1. Perhaps you were misled?

I have only tried a few games, but it will run: Air Control Lite, Solitaire, Sudoku (as you can tell, I'm not a kid! ).

On the Whirlpool forum:

http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=1608467

There's quite an extensive thread running, some posts mention games.

Default power off time issue

I didn't expect much but thought I would give it a try. I also got the wireless modem/router deal which works well although Pendo's wifi stuggles if your ar emore than 6 foot away. Follow the intructions you find here to better the battery performance. Keep it simple and you should get a few hours use from batter.
I recommend using dxtop as default home. Also for easeof use eyeonapps and jkappswitchex as a shortcuts for ease of use.
Makes a good ebook reader. Also good for budgeting. A good paper weight too.

If I power off I have to reset date and time....This would be my biggest complaint

Also if I power off it takes several power off/ons to get the orientation working again

My power jack is loose and has to be connected just right or it wont charge.

Are these standard problems or is it just my piece of 'Pendo'?

No problems here on both issues.

My power jack is loose and has to be connected just right or it wont charge.
This has been mentioned on the Whirlpool forum, but no problems here yet.

The biggest annoyance for me is that "Suspend" really just dims the screen -as soon as I touch it, bam, she's back up. Not helpful when it's in my bag and it gets bumped. I thought it might work like Suspend in Windoze.

Thanks for the app tips.

I must have a good one!

Default Reading books with pendo?

Hi, someone mentioned previously about reading books with pendo.
I'm relatively new to this, so please be gentle with me.

How do I go about getting books onto the pendo.
Do I need an app (and not really sure where to get this from either).
Are there particular types of books I should be looking for?
And where would be the place to get these from?

As you can see, I need some help with this, so any advice would be appreciated

(Can anyone tell me how to change the time and delete photo's )

Many Thanks

Plug your USB lead into the top USB port on the Pendo. Two drives should appear in Windows Explorer: A "Rockchips" drive, which is the internal SD memory, and "Removeable Disk", being the SD card in the Pendo.

The lower USB slot can only be used with the modem, and make sure only one or the other (modem/USB lead) are being used at one time. You can't plug in both together.

Make sure its plugged into the bottom usb port, and go to settings and go to wireless @ networks tick the mobile network box, the internet stick will flash orange then flash green until its stays green, it may take a few minutes, also check it is activated through dodo, hope this helps , i too am new at this...lol

It should work; open up your Outlook Express and get the account settings from there, then insert them into the Pendo's email settings as you did with the other email accounts you set up. I have my email account with iinet working well.

It does take some time to eventually connect. But if it hasn't done so after say 5 minutes, then your 3G signal from Optus (Dodo's provider) probably isn't strong enough. My Pendo wouldn't connect 30 floors up in the Brisbane CBD!

Potentially tricky bits are:

Incoming mail: mine is set to port 110, and outgoing mail is set to port 587.

I am Australian and have got the Dodo Pendo pad and it works great. I am a 63 year old woman so am still learning. Seems easy enough for me have been playing and learning with it.
