Will it support Flash? Which retailers will sell this unit?
right now non are buying from us. We are just getting these in and starting to sell. I am seeking wholesale accounts though if anyone can point me to them. This of course will wait until I get the darn thing in my hands.
I do not know for sure but I am hopping that by tomorrow night I should have most of the unanswered questions answered!
First Thank You for this post. I should have one in my hands today and we can check it out.
The guy in the video admits he is an Apple guy.
His tablet did not come from our factory in China. If the thing had not booted he would have had a trip through he!! to get a replacement. We are US based and offer a warranty and we are cheaper than the one he ordered and our price includes shipping to the US.
We sell 7" netbooks with 300 mhz WINCE 128M ram and 2G storage they are cheap but can be fun. Yet we are selling $5,000,000 a year worth of these.
Second this seems like it is the same model and such and even the box is the same.
This machine is not a ipad ! Period. It does not have the power of the Ipad. It does not have the features of the Ipad, It does not cost an arm and a leg like the Ipad.
You want an Ipad go get one.
Do not get me wrong Ipads are awesome. but they are expensive.
This is Android and Android is still in it's infancy.
If you are expecting an Ipad then it will disappoint, but if you are looking for an Android Tablet then this should make you happy!
I will see about shooting some video when I get mine in and will compare to this video.
I did play with a 1.6 tablet and the marketplace did not work. other than that I liked it.
I wonder though if they guy in the video calibrated it for his touch. You have to do that or it will not respond well.
I will let everyone know when I get mine (Supposed to be toady) and will start testing!
Well after much yelling screaming and hollering on my part I have a 10" tablet in my hands. I got it last night.
I will post my initial thoughts and then will do a post with more technical information soon.
I had played with a 7" Android 1.6 Eiken and hated it.
I opened the box. I noticed that it is packed a lot better than the 7" tablets were.
I turned it on and it is not a horrible boot speed. When you tilt the screen it is much faster to respond than the 7" but not as fast as the cell phones I have seen. The picture seems very nice crisp and clear!
I started the wireless connection no problems there. (Stayed logged on for about 1 hour with no problems even when walking around the house and even out onto the back porch.
I logged on and went straight to market and downloaded the system info app from electricsheep. I also downloaded the fishing game. I had all kinds of problems getting apps from the 1.6 Android
The system info downloaded fine. The fishing game I had to wait a little bit. I hit a button and it vansihed and I got back in and it downloaded just fine.
The touch screen to me is very nice compared to the 7" it is easier to use and is more responsive than the 7" and I did not even take off the plastic screen protector.
I browsed a bit and Flash 10 is not installed it seems but I will try to install it today. It did play youtube videos nicely.
The 2 mini speakers on the buttom are actually quite nice sounding for their size. My 7" WinCE tablet you cannot hear the sound through the speaker. With this tablet I actually had to go turn it down.
It seems that there is a "mic" on the side that is just a tiny hole. I was thinking that you plugged in one then I realized it is supposed to have a mic built in.
It comes with the Ethernet adapter. I will try to load some apps onto an SD card today and try to see how that goes!
Initial thoughts on this are I really like it. It needs the case, or some kind of stand. I hate having it lie flat.
The video is great. It beats the heck out of the 7 inch screen.
Market works. Wireless seem to be doing good. I loaded the news and weather widget and now I need to figure out how to set it up for my local area as it does not seem to be doing that.
I am looking at making some videos of it and will post a link sometime.
I would give it a 4 out of 5 initial score so far But then I have never touched an Ipad! That is my comparison to the 1.6 tablets.
I loaded up The %^& %@)(& Theory on my USB stick and plugged it in had to go to file manager to get it to start but it looked great. I have a 7" WinCE tablet that handles HDTV and this is even better.
I did not get the carrying case yet, and I really think that will make it better because you really need some form of a stand. Our Case it $25 and includes a stylus and a keyboard. China claims it is leather.
Was just looking over this thread. I watched the Engadget video on the similar device and I don't know if it was just him or the tablet but I was not very impressed with how it appeared to be going for him - and I wanted to be.
Interested to see more videos from you or other Android enthusiasts who get one.
Every forum should have a Phases.
Yeah anybody get hooked up with one of these? As a developer the cheapest 10 inch tab avail isn't to big of a deal, especially if the drawback is like battery life, I'm just looking for a tablet to test applications on. Anyone know how to get a hold of him?
