    I purchased at the weekend a flytouch 3 superpad 2, then I found out there seems to be a lot of controversy over them! Have I been duped?:mad: can you get this pad to work anything like reasonably?:cool: I've had Android phones since the G1 so quite used to flashing roms and gaining super user rights and i'm aware all devices are different.

    Looking over a few other threads you seem to be a clued up bunch so can you tell me what are the best things I can do to get my flytouch working well straight out of the box? (should have it tomorrow)

    Thanks in advance for your replies :)

    Hello Driod Members - I just purchase the following FlyTouch 3 Super Pad off of Ebay. Should arrive in 10 days...I've read mixed reviews but after a little decision making, figured I'd drop $200 for this cool but questionable Tablet.

    Here are the specs -

    Brand / Model:Flytouch 3 / SuperPAD 2 Operating System: Google Android 2.2CPU / Speed:Infotmic ARM11 1Ghz CPUScreen / Resolution:10.2" inch 1024x600 resistive TFT touch screen System Memory: (RAM)512MB DDR2Hard Drive:4GB NAND Flash (2GB for OS, 2GB available space)GPS:Yes, come with GPS antennaWi-Fi:Yes, 802.11b/gLAN (RJ45):Yes, 10/100 Ethernet3G/3.5G (HSDPA):Yes, support external USB 3G modem recommend 3G modem: HUAWEI E1750Bluetooth:NoCamera:Yes, 1.3 mega pixel Audio:Built in x2 high quality speakers (0.5w) and microphoneColor:Silver Expansion Card Slot:Support Micro SD / T-Flash, Max 32GBI/O Ports:USB2.0 host x2, 3.5mm audio jack, DC in, TF card slot, mini HDMI, RJ45 Ethernet, GPS antenna Keyboard:Yes, US screen keyboard or external USB keyboard Mouse & Touch Pad:Yes, built in touch pad or external USB mouseDisplay Output:HDMI v1.3 full HD 1080P decoding, high-definition movie playbackBattery Pack:Rechargeable Li-ion battery 5800mAhBattery Life:Approx. 3-4 hoursPower Adapter:100-220V Input, 9V DC Output, 2ADimensions:Approx. 270mm(H) x 170mm(W) x 25mm(D)NET Weight:Approx. 720gTotal Weight:Approx. 1.5KG with packing boxLanguage:Multi-languageGame & Apps:Can download thousands of 3D games and apps by android marketMusic Player:support MP3,WMA,MP2,OGG,AAC,M4A,MA4,FLAC,APE,3GP,WAV,suppo rt playlistVideo Player:Support AVI, RM, RMVB, MKV, WMV, MOV, MP4,PMP,MPEG, MPG, FLV, 3GP, MPG, H.264, etc.E-Book Reader:Support WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT, PDF, TXT, etc.....Picture Viewer:Support JPG, JPEG, GIF......Internet Browser:Google Chrome web browserInternet Massage: MSN, Gtalk, Skype, QQ......Email:YesSpecial Function:Gravity inducer (G-Sensor), Android market, Google map, YouTube

    Now - will I need to immediately update the software when this thing arrives, which site can I download the best working software, since this is the FlyTouch 3 it only comes with one card reader, right?...Also, what is the maximum size SD Card that I can use?..I read a thread elsewhere that said, a 32Gig SD Card would not work?...I have read good reviews on this Tablet, and I have read some bad reviews also. I purchased the USB keyboard but worried it might crash, based on a review I read. They mention the keyboard always crashed?....What I'd like to know is; Do you think its the Hardware, software, or a combintion of both?....I hear that Andriod software was not engineered for the larger screened tablets?. Again, this is just what I have read from others and their complains...I think for $200 its worth giving it a shot!....One last thing - will it stream NetFlicks?...God I hope so..?.......Hope to hear from all of you who have worked through most of the bugs.......Thanks

    I just ordered mine tonight also. I have the same questions. I didn't bother with the keyboard I heard any USB keyboard would work. I'll find out. I don't really like little cheesy keyboards anyhow. I did get a car charger.

    Just ordered a Flytouch 3, 512mb/8gig and 6000mah battery. All in all, I'm looking for an ebook reader and something I can watch movies on. The GPS might be handy. It would be cool looking at the 10" screen. It will be an email reader and some internet browsing but I doubt that it will ever be my primary device for that.

    I've ROM'd my droid x and love it. So far I am undecided if it is worth the effort to ROM the flytouch3. I'll try it a while and see if things work. I picked the Flytouch3 because of this forum. Thanks folks.

    here
    Don't worry! I have FlyTouch SuperPad 2 since last week :), today i upgraded the external microSd to 32 gb - and it is working (Sandisk 32 gb Class 4). Also i changed firmware to Tim's 3d, waiting for 4a now :). On market there is lot of free apps - for ebooks - like adobe reader etc... also for movies, but the video player included to firmware is very good - plays mkv, avi and rmvb.

    I got my FT3 over a week ago and i did think it was a little sluggish out of the box. I re-flashed it to Tim latest ROM and its as fast as hell. Im also getting a good 8 hours out of the battery including watching films and browsing the internet. Well worth
