Nice tablet with some neat features
I like the tablet's physical design. Holding it in portrait mode is very comfortable along the wider edge.. It actually has very good viewing angles so when laying it flat, the wider edge does make it easier to view (not as good as a stand, but it's useable.)
Audio is ok, screen is nice. Performance after the update to 3.2 is better than what was on the unit in the store (BB).
However, the main reason I purchased it is for use as a remote control and for the PSP gaming features.
The remote control features work for my television and Comcast cable box, but since you have to access the app and switch to that control screen, it's not as quick as just picking up the remote (which you can feel by touch where the buttons are.)
The PSP and PSOne gaming features don't appear to be working except for the included two games. Sony's PlayStation Network is down again (at least today) and they've taken their Media Go software utility down (hopefully to update it for the tablets they've just introduced.)
Overall I like it, it's a great couch tablet/reader. (I'm more partial to HTC devices for web reading because of their great text reflow.) But it also includes their "Chumby" features and with the 39.99 stand works pretty well.
I must point out that I think someone forgot to include a USB cable in the packaging. I can't imagine they intentionally left it out. They put in a lanyard/strap but left out the basic USB cable. Really?
