I think you made a good choice. I just went to Bestbuy to try out all the tablets there. A43 is the only one there that have BT tethering ability and the size of 4 inches. Asus transformer also works and rocks but they don't have anything small, only 10.1 inches. All the others, Samsung Galaxy tabs, Galaxy player, Sony, etc, nothing works. So, it depends on how you use your tablet. If you just use it at home or at work, then it doesn't matter. But if you use it outside, then make sure you can have a portable internet access too.
I think so too. I still don't regret buying it and that's a good sign. It does work good. And you get what you paid for. It is a good size, one of the reasons I bought it 4.Enough space to store, enough speed, Antutu says 2490 nice screen.Batterylife seems to be good. Thought.The buttons are small and fragile. But you can't have it all for this price. I also wanted to use it outside. I mean I want to be able to put it in my pocket of bagpack and get it out when needed, like for making note of checking e-mail via wifi, and so on. So not only for home use.
I would have liked the "A5IT" too but it doesn't has a cam. I must say the cam isn't very good. Though, I can scan barcodes.
As reported ZXing before doesn't work. "MyCollection" makes use of Xzing. I will experiment more.Basically I am satisfied. About new firmware. I haven't found a reason why I should install the latest since nothing for the "43" has changed.
Meanwhile I also installed the "normal" Android market./ I did the fix but probely I have to do it again and also clear the data of the google framework and force an stop like on my Polaroid tab.
