Not sure why they would expect anyone to get excited really. I'd go for their own B1 if I was in the market for a budget tablet, the specs aren't exactly worlds apart and with the £20 cash back offer Acer are running through May its almost half the price!
I'm getting pretty annoyed with companies doing this. Do they buy into the Apple hype? There are FAR more Android devices out there than iOS. Enough I would suggest to bring Android apps out first.
My bank (Smile.co.uk) has done something similar recently with their mobile banking app. They first brought out IOS and Blackberry apps and android is coming soon (now a few months down the line). I'd wager far more of their customers use Android then either of the other two OS's.
The particular irony with Virgin is that their mobile arm doesn't even sell the iphone (or pad) so they have effectively put other companies customers over their own. As a Virgin customer who gets their TV, home phone, broadband and mobile from them, I'm not impressed.
What is the love affair with iOS? If the numbers stacked up I could understand but they don't. Android hold something like 57% market share to iOS's 18%.
I have found one bug. On the recent apps screen it under laps the status bar so part of the kill all button is covered and there is a gap the same width as the status bar at the bottom of the screen not covered by the black background.
Thats it though. Love the combination of the best bits of the various types of rom. Its nice to see something different. Thanks again.
I think the XDA thread is closed because after you launched your CLEARLY marked early alpha for people to have a play, everyone over there started laying into !SINGH! because he hadn't released a CAB yet.
Then he looks as though he threw all his toys out the pram because you had released the CAB early. All a bit childish really. Most of the arguments could have been avoided if people would just READ.
Anyway I've tried the modaco panels cab out on my Orange UK device. Ran o.k for about 5 or six launches then froze my device, pretty much what was expected I think. But its only a quick soft reset to fix it.
I have to say the soft reset is pretty snappy compared to my old Eten X800 and my Artemis B)
