  1. OK, just entered even though I already have one. Really impressed by it so far, battery lasts well over a day with no low battery warning in the evening.
  2. I imagine ovivo will go the same way as GiffGaff eventually, they couldn't give away free internet for ever
  3. There is no root for windows mobile as such, just bootloader unlocking, its been a while but from what I can remember this will probably need a windoiws pc. Head over to the Xperia x1 forum on xda developers to see what you can do with it, its mostly going to be custom roms and themes though, and trying to do all this from linux may be tricky.
  4. What Paul said for points one and two. The ability to view old purchases is still there though without the legacy store, although it isn't very consitant. On my Nexus one I just go to the apps section of Play and there is a download icon in the top section next to the magnifying glass, on my HTC OneX I need to click on the menu button to get to the same place.
  5. They could call it the Nexus Optimus, or NO for short.
  6. Got the Jot touch last week, bluetooth pressure sensitivity is ok on the ipad, but not as good as an active digitiser pen on windows. The stylus itself is very good, and very accurate. For android I recommend getting one of the cheaper Jots like the mini, cheaper than the bamboo and if they are anything like the touch you won't be disappointed.
  7. I did say I'd gone a overboard, its the bluetooth version I've bought :wacko:. I was thinking of getting one of the cheaper versions without the pressure sensitivity, but I know that a few weeks/months down the line I'd be wishing I gone for the more expensive option; so I figured I'd save £20 or £30 and just buy it now.
  8. I've gone completely overboard and ordered a Jot touch pressure sensitive stylus for my iPad. I have a few of the supported apps for it on the iPad and hope to have a few for my Nexus 7 when they get around to releasing the Android SDK. Its a lot of money just for a stylus but I hope its worth it in the end.
  9. No problems with the cheap one I got from Amazon, it seems to lock every time and the magnet is so small/weak it really needs to be on the front of the case to work properly. The only thing I think I would change is the amount of coverage at the edges, as the opening is the same size as the screen it makes it difficult to swipe in from the edge to scroll through tabs in chrome and to pull down the status bar.
  10. Case just came through, and for the money I'm pretty happy. I must have got the version two case as the magnets seem to work just fine, screen comes on when I open the case. As a stand its not great, the fold is a bit weak to trust to holding the N7 in landscape for video viewing, but as a case for protection and carrying around it does the job and doesn't feel overly cheap. The free stylus works well for draw something too, not put on the screen protector as I'm not a fan of them, and in the case it doesn't really need one.
  11. I can see purchased, and previously loaded free, apps in the regular play store, just A bit more hidden than before. Look in the menu bar for a download icon on right, clicking it brings back my apps with installed and all.
  12. Mine is messing about with its WiFi connection now too, but I've found out that you can pass through a WiFi connection from your phone using Bluetooth.
  13. Just ordered this, will let you know what its like when it gets here.
  14. The build in Data Usage in settings.
  15. Noticed something weird on my N7, when I had skype running in the background it had managed to clock up 1.45 GB of data, with only about 80MB used for a short video call to test the quality of the camera. Decided to uninstall it as quality wasn't great and with that ammount of data transferred it couldn't have been doing the battery life much good. Has anyone else with Skype installed noticed this or was mine just acting up?

    Win a HTC One X

    Its the same size as all the other terms and conditions, they are all equally important. The fact that it is locked to Orange with £10 credit should have been a bit of a clue though.
  17. Hi Paul, What is the video calling quality like from skype, read on another site recently that calling to an iPad resulted in very posterised looking video on the iPad coming from the nexus 7.
  18. It is not a hardware limitation, someone over on XDA (RMXO) has been able to mount EXT3/EXT4 formatted USB flash drives, but has had no luck with FAT32 or NTFS.Getting files to work seems to depend on copying to the card via the tablet. Does that sound as if the OTG hardware interface is unable to work with USB? If google added in an option to mount the cards, and added FAT32 support to them it should just work.
  19. I'm not showing any tracking on Quidco yet, did you use the voucher code as well to get the preorder price shown in Curry's basket down to 189.99?
  20. I've preordered from currys with 5% discount code ABER5, 5% quidco and free delivery - total saving of about £30 over Google price (if they validate quidco). Not sure if it comes with the £15 play credit and free content, but if it does this would have to be bargin of the year. Already have quite a few Tegra games for my One X, can't wait to see how they look on the bigger screen.
  21. I have a Macbook from 2008 and a Dell laptop with much lower spec, guess which one overheats with flash running. If Apple allowed proper hardware acceleration for flash on their older equipment things would be much better, but that wouldn't sell new hardware or help kill off something Steve Jobs had a dislike for.
  22. Just ordere 16GB one from Currys with the ABER5 code for £189.99 + a possible extra 5% for going through Quidco if they apply both. Code valid for this weekend only.
  23. Perhaps the hidden MicroSD slot is a way for flashing, if I remember right that was the way the OrangeSPV was hacked.
  24. If it really is a regional problem then change the channel used by your access point to channel 6 whichis legal in all regions. I don't think it will be though as you've tried several different access points, it is unlikely that all three will be using the upper channels which are illegal in some areas. It sounds more like a software or hardware bug affecting the WiFi reception, if there are no reports of major faults from lots of different users I'd guess at a hardware fault on your phone.
