    You might try amazon for the Le Pan II. Hard to get but a good price for a 9.7 with Bluetooth and GPS built in. Only problem I've had is presently I can not get on Starbucks wifi but I can get on all other wifi that I've tried.
    I might be a malware. Looking for a fix.

    I suggest HpTouchpad. You can have both webos and android. It is worth about 200 dollars and it is faster than the Samsung galaxy tab 10.1. The biggest downside for android on hptouchpa is that camera and mic still don't work in android but they do work under webos so you should be just fine

    This is a Chinese tablet, fluky wifi is frequently is a problem with these things.

    It's not malware. You could try looking for a software update, more than likely it's a hardware problem though.

    I usually do NOT recommend anyone buy cheapo off-brand tablets from China, they're usually seen on Ebay, Amazon, Taobao, Alibaba, Made-in-China, etc.

    Moved thread into General Tablet Talk, which is more appropriate.

    Thing is most tablets are made in China, isn't everything?...including Apple iPads. However it's the quality of the cheap off-brand devices that can be very variable. The one's that nobody as ever heard of, or where they don't even bother putting a name on it. I know, I live in China and I see what some of this stuff can be like, absolute garbage sometimes.

    Your "Le Pan" (who??) device, appears to have wifi problems, which is a very frequent issue with cheap Chinese tablets.
