The wireless is just plain shoddy and by that I mean the hardware isn't the greatest. Cut your standard wireless speed in half and that's about the responsiveness. I just bought a G-tab(only $279 on amazon) and I'm going to do a side-by-side comparison when it arrives.

I'm hearing good things about the g-tab, and at that price, there really is no reason to be rolling the dice on a Flytouch, IMO. For $60-70 more, you're getting a superior device in almost every single way with the peace of mind of a hassle-free warranty.

The only thing I was able to get working on the HDMI out was the video player. Just start the video and push Menu (or maybe it was the Home?) button. Hold it for a second or two and the Flytouch screen will go dark and display on the TV. I don't believe it is designed to browse, play games or do anything but play videos through HDMI.

Hope this helps!

They all have 7000mAh batteries, 512ram, 4gb memory, camera,GPS, Android 2.2, sorry. I just odered 6 04/14/11. Not looking to make alot so my price will be $215 with case and 4GB TF card, screen protector, with shipping included. If you order 2 or more, $225 for one piece. The 6 I ordered are all sold as of 04/16/11 9am.

Default Flytouch 3 system status. Is it up to date?

Hello,

I have since few days my flytouch 3, and updated it with Tim's 2e firmware.
Ho-ever I have some doubt about the revisions, but as I am not familiar with the different firmware versions I attach a picture about my system.
Could you tell me guys is it up to date or not? In many articles I was reading about firmware dates somehow end of Marc, as you can see mine is 20110302.
Also do not know the Model number "disco" is proper or not.

So, every feedback is appreciated.

I used the

I know this sounds stupid but plug it in and let it charge for about an hour. Then try turning it back on. Otherwise since you just got it, send that puppy back.

Default My Superpad III 2.2 Review

At a glance the new SuperPad III isn't much different from the II version. If anything, it's not as good because it only has 1 TF slot. Small stuff, but what really ticks me off is this:

Doesn't support flash player 10.1 like ALL the sellers claim.
Doesn't respond very well via touch or tilt.
Doesn't support HDMI to HDTV very well either..Volume and upscale issues render it almost useless..You would think they would have incorporated a regular HDMI slot too on the new version..NOPE
Doesn't have 4GB of memory..when I tried to install Flash I was asked to insert removable media..If there was 2GB free of the 4GB why does it ask for an sd card?? Like the fake ipods they sell, I believe these tablets have hacked memory cards aswell..
Doesn't support Canada in weather app...previous versions did..
GPS feature sucks & google maps always revert to China Location.

in summary.. If you just want something to slowly browse the internet & check out Facebook or other emails then this will do the job. Only other feature worth mentioning is you can watch movies on it via usb or sd card..movies you already have saved..don't expect Netflix or other online streaming sites to work, because they won't!

2 stars out of 5 not worth a penny over $175.00 with free S&H.

Hello everyone!
I recently purchased what I believe to be a Flytouch 3. It was a birthday present for my oldest son. I have two questions. Facebook. Can you play the games. Such as Farmville and Social Empires? Second. Any of the apps that require tilting the unit...nothing happens when it is tilted. Any suggestions?

It does, you might have to flash to a new firmware/rom perhaps ?

I have not tested it myself but i heard that it works flawless (perhaps you have old firmware) - the internal speaker is indeed shit,but if you connect video to a flatscreen tv, you prolly want to connect the audio also to something differend then the internal speaker,then it sounds flawless.

IT comes in 2gb,4gb or 8gb (like mine) - i"m not sure why it would ask to insert removable media,never had it happen to me. Do you mean you tried to flash yr device perhaps ? excuse me if i understand wrong.

there are differend weather apps u can get i gues. If the gps is stuck you need to get a firmware upgrade and do the 'clear gpsA fix' - i had to do it also and now the gps works flawless. PS: use a real gps program. Google maps is for me useless there you need a internet connection all the time (i know it can cache maps now)

Browing the internet depends on your internet connection, your wifi signal and ofcourse what browser you use (this can vary a lot on mobile devices), i suggest trying a few differend browsers because imo browsing the web on my device is very smooth and fast.

For the rest everyone can have its own opinions ofcourse, i just wanted to set things right. for me it gives great value for its price. at least 3/5 stars - prolly 3.5/5

Hi all

I have been reading this forum for a while now whilst trying to figure out which tablet to get for a birthday present, i have finally (i think!!) decided on the flytouch 3, and i am ready to order it.

i have found it on ******.com for 159.90 Dollars then with postage it will be 187 Dollars total. i would just like to know if anyone else has ordered from here or even just someone with a bit more expertise with this item could have a look to make sure it will be a genuine flytouch 3

Here is the link:
Fly Touch 3: Android 2.2 Tablet, 10.2, Flash 10.1, 1GHz CPU, Wifi, G-sensor, HDMI Output, Camera, 512M DDR2 RAM

Thanks in advance
Kev

If you are trying to update your tablet using the Upgrade system in the settings then you will be getting errors as it has not been implemented yet...to upgrade with 'Tims image' you will need to do it manually (find the image & use the SD card update route)

Thanks for that, as it happens, I discovered the other method after I posted and successfully applied it and it's absolutely wonderful

The RAM improvement is huge and lends the machine a less choppy, smooth feel to the user experience. It even helps when running multiple applications as well. Absolutely worth the investment.

I think I will go for the 16gb FT3... i knew procrastination would pay off...

16gb Flytouch 3 Epad Takes On iPad 2 for Tablet Dominance
Thanks for tipping us about the fake Flytouch3's on the market. I was able to cancel my order for the non-iBex one and get a 16gb iBex Flytouch3. Battery is 8000mah. My friend got a 4gb version an it only had 5200mah, have to say mine lasts for 1.5 hours more than his. Got my 16gb iBex FT3 here: 16GB Flytouch 3 Android 2.2 Epad - Superpad 2 Flash 10.1 Tablet PC w/ 3G, GPS

The only thing is that the screen is 1024x576 (instead of 1024x600) - i have not yet upgraded rom yet as some people say there are two different roms for the diff screens.

Default USB Ports

Hi,

I upgraded my FlyTouch 3 with Tim's 4C Rom, and it works great.

Except...

Is there anything that you have to do to enable the USB ports on this pad?

They work fine whe I use my USB keyboard but when I hook to my pc via USB cable nothing happens.

I know the cable is good, as I tested it with another device.

Thanks in advance,

Matt

I don't know where to place the priority on this. Gome doesn't even make a flytouch 3, so anything out there with the name FT3 is automatically a knock off. Now there are fake knock offs?

not true the original 4gb ibex flytouch 3 has a 6400mah and according to ************ the superpad 3- the one everyone is calling a clone is the same exact unit only with modified firmware.

Here is what drives me crazy. $150 for a new FT3 including shipping. Almost makes me go out and order another. I'm pretty sure it's not iBex but it is ibex worth another $50+ delivered?

China Grabber is also advertising the 8gb iBex Flytouch 3 with 6400mah.

Has anyone here returned their Flytouch3 to ************s for repair/replacement? I have sent 2 emails for instructions on how to do this and have yet to receive an answer.

You have been very clear on your stand on IBEX which you believe to be the best Gnome knockoff on the market today. Since you don't seem to understand the fascination, maybe I can explain it from my point of view. The Fly touch 3 is the cheapest tablet on the market today with a reasonably nice hardware profile. The one on ebay delivered is nearly half the price of the China Grabber version. People usually don't research the tablets until after they purchase it. If I hadn't already ordered mine, I would have been very tempted by the one on Ebay. I would like to remind you not everyone holds the Ibex in such high regard. Warning not to buy Flytouch 3 or clones. - xda-developers

China Grabber does offer something that others don't. A website for support. The Apad site is a very active group and are helpful to all. They are actively working on ROMS and are trying to come out with a working version of Android 3.0. They have tinkers on there who are actively modding their flytouches.

This brings me to my reason for a ft3, there is a wonderful resource group of tinkers and programmers. If your the tinker type who try's to do it yourself, the ft3 is cheap in the event you screw it up. You didn't just blow the family budget for a plastic paperweight. I can presume it will work out of the box but if not, that is what the warrantee is for. If I decide the basic functionality is sufficient, I would expect that to work. If I want it to work "Better", there are resources out there. Possibly another top reason is that it isn't an apple.

If money was no object and I wanted something to simply working out of the box, I would either get the IPAD or Motorola Xoom. (I'm not saying Xoom is the best representation of the Android tablets, it's just what popped into my head.)

Does this shed light on your confusion?

I have Superpad3 with Tim3a firmware it works very well. I open it up 2 weeks ago and replace the 4gb memory with 16gb now i have more memory and was very easy to do.

I think the flytouch3 and superpad3 is same, i compare photos online of flytouch3 to my superpad3 when i opened and it all looked the same.

OK, I'm not sure exactly what I've got. The box says "SuperPAD III 2.2 with Google", but it doesn't have a brand name anywhere. Anyway, I'm not an IT person or a Android geek, and this thing (whatever it is) does everything I want it to do, so I'm happy. I do have one very simple question, though. I'm going to Spain next month, and want to use it on the plane. There is no "airplane mode" anywhere in the settings, so I'm wondering what I need to do in order to make it airline friendly. Is turning off the wi fi in settings all I need to do, or is there something else?

I am looking at purchasing this model as well, can you please post back when you get yours?

Also, thanks to everyone for all of your knowledgeable info! One question though....I want to use this for school purposes. I need adobe flash for my homework from a site called "MyMath Lab" or CourseCompass. Will I be able to use this tablet for that? TIA!

Default Version support

I ordered a superpad 2 yesterday and im wondering if there is anyway to upgrade to android 3.0 or if there are regular updates for the current software.

The reason I ask is one of the main reasons I bought this is I have Zinio magazine subscriptions and just found out that the Zinio app says min 3.0 so im guessing 2.2 wont run it. Do I have options or is that pretty much it for now?
