    I have in my possession a tablet with (afaik) a 300mhz processor, 128MB RAM and a not particularly responsive touch screen (nxttab7bl).

    Now, as a tablet for general use, it's pretty useless. It struggles to display web pages, seems to struggle with videos no matter how small I shrink them and generally isn't a pleasure to use.

    My questions are:

    1) Is there a custom ROM or a way of installing a bootable e-book reader to basically turn the thing into a cheap kindle-style device?


    2) Which is the most stripped down, light-weight, no frills ROM I can get that will have nothing installed other than an e-book reader (would even be happy with no network settings etc.) to try and milk out what performance I can to make the ebook reader a little more responsive?

    Thanks in advance for any advice

    it will be tough to get a lot of power out if this tab. for just and e-reader try Cool Reader, if you turn off the page animations it should be fine.

    But I don;t know if you will have any luck with a custom rom. You could Google Tipstir custom rom and check out his website HCH techknow and dig through their archives.
