One other thing, when you have a few tabs open in the stock browser when you switch between them i find it ends up having to reload the page.tht a side effect of having only 512mb?
Yep, that's a side effect of low RAM resources, which is the main downside of this tablet, I reckon. Once you fire up few apps or load heavy websites, whole device gets sluggish and not quite responsive, as OS is working hard behind the scenes to shuffle things in/out RAM.
However, as soon as we will have solid root solution for 80 G9, I will be looking to enable swap partition (virtual memory) which should improve performance a bit.

Luckily poweramp seems a pretty good app, but I miss the rew/ffw options in notification area.

i'm thinking about getting one, but my main concern is its ability to play 720p mkv videos .. can it run these files smoothly ?

mine came today, thank you dixons and your £171 price.
so far so good. don't like the stock keyboard, think swiftkey tablet edition might be in order. screen is good, much better than the Vega, though not as nice as ips offerings. updated to latest firmware and market seems to be working fine. it takes a long time to charge mind.
edit: Another question, when I attach the tablet to my laptop I don't get an option to 'mount' the drives. is this normal?
I've looked at DIXON site and I can't find this tablet, I have you bought online?
