Flash not working on this is the only dissappintment I can find on this device and perhaps a rom upgrade may resolve this?

Is it a proprietary charger or microUSB?

The Carrypad review of the hardware-identical Viewsonic Viewpad 7 suggests that it is the processor that is the limiting feature for these devices supporting Flash.

Thanks for this, an excellent review too ... But I thought this was an arm 6 cpu ... I feel a wiki session coming on when I get off the train :rolleyes:

Edit: Due to a spell of presumptuous numptification ... The above statement is withdrawn .. Arm11 it is!

Juuuuuuuuuuusssssssssstt about held off pulling the trigger and buying one of these.

I saw Paul MoDaCo mention that staples have it for £280! I can also get 7% cashback from topcashback so would've worked out a bargain (I'm still tempted).

However I saw on the Advent Tablet thread there's mention of a near identical (to the Commtiva) Tablet but with a 1Ghz processor. I'm sure it won't be as cheap, but I think I'll kick myself it I don't hold out for it.

I've gotta say, this Tablet does look mightly slick running FroYo - the resposiveness looks just what I'd hope for/expect!

Keep up the posts!

Yep, there seem to be a slew of up-specced tablets about to launch. Many don't have 3g though, I think that's true of the Advents that are coming!

I noticed the Staples price is PLUS VAT (cheeky), so the Tesco deal is better.

Might be tempted to order one if there's another people who want a custom ROM etc...

Custom rom, custom rom .... o_O fatherd has to rush to the loo

Edit: but seriously, I managed to root this and flash clockwork recovery, but cannot boot into the recovery, also root explorer allows me to delete stuff from the system but not paste anything in! Seems it is fairly well locked down, so I for one would love to see you break this baby open B)

Hmm, good spot, I missed that. It doesn't seem such a bargain now, so I don't feel so bad waiting B)

I wonder if they'll be an onslaught after Christmas of new tablets? Seems a missed opportunity. Sorry, off topic. I'll stop now!

Hmmm, based on that info, sounds dead easy to get it fully open. Gah. Don't really have the funds to spend on another gadget! Maybe i'll get it from Tesco and return it within 7 days depending on the level of interest...

Damn you lot, I just ordered one from Tesco, for delivery Saturday! :)

I plan to have a play, fully open it up with custom recovery etc. within the 7 day period, and see what level of interest there is.

Basically, if enough people are interested and it generates some Plus and Ad Free signups to cover the cost i'll keep it, else i'll probably have to return it. B)
