Re: Asus Memo 370T -> Nexus Tablet

It's ok, I can wait, I would rather pay $300 for the Memo 370T than $200 for a crippled Google tab Have you seen anywhere that the 370T will be a released product? All the rumors I read made it seem like the 370T was morphed into the Nexus 7. I'd also be surprised if Google would team up with Asus ...

Re: Asus Memo 370T -> Nexus Tablet

Sure is a pity but it is clearly a move in direct response to Amazon and Apple to compete for the cloud content provision.

Re: Asus Memo 370T -> Nexus Tablet

The Google move is towards cloud only so the lack of external sd and mini hdmi was done on purpose to get people on their cloud services. USB host mode is important to a lot of people and amazingly with all the reviews there is still no clear answer if it is supported or not. I fear it is not suppor...

Re: Asus Memo 370T -> Nexus Tablet?

The Asus Memo 370T has just passed FCC and should be available shortly.
Looks like all the rumors can be put to rest.

Re: Asus Memo 370T

I think the announcement of this came directly from CES by the CEO of Nvidia. While it could be vaporware, I find it highly unlikely Jen-Hsun Huang would publicly announce this if it was not solidly in the works. Granted some market condition could change this, but the move is calculated towards gam...

Re: Asus Memo 370T

For 7" tablet fans this is the device we will wait for. Listed as a "kindle killer" by some, but not really any comparison between the 2 other than size. Pure Android with Market access, etc. Superior CPU and power management with Tegra 3 HDMI port, 8mp camera. I am ready to buy it the second it hit...

Re: New Amazon Kindle Fire tablet is on preorder

My biggest question about Amazon's newest venture is how their movie streaming works with the Fire. Currently, when I try to stream video from Amazon to one of my Android tablets, I get a notification from their website that their videos are not optimized for mobile. On Archos gen 9, playback is mu...

Archos keeps getting behind in the product cycle.

This will be here before OMAP 1.5

Re: HTC Flyer And Jetstream

Ahhh, my bad, I thought you bought 3 online and picked them up in a store for $99 before they sacked the deal. Well who knows, maybe they will come out with some adjusted deal One thing I do know, I will not return to any of their stores after this last fiasco. I drove 20 miles to a store that had a...

You sure did, would be hard for them to ask you to bring them back or charge you extra for the purchase. Their screw up, your gain. I bought it at $299 and am trying to take advantage of their price match guarantee. I called them at 7am this morning before it was known that this was a mistake. We'l...

Re: HTC Flyer And Jetstream

Best buy lowered price of flyer to $99 and pen to $39. If you purchased in the last two weeks, you may be able to get a refund for the difference. I purchased 3 flyers with pens over the weekend and my refund is supposed to be in the works. I gather you purchased online, so have you been notified o...

Not sure what that was all about, the online add was there this am, but the store had a sign by the Flyer display with the mistake in print.

Re: HTC Flyer And Jetstream

Thanks for your feedback on the Flyer, I figured it would be impressive and the price is very nice.

Btw, you do know there is an app named HoneyBar for rooted devices that hides the bottom navigation bar on demand?

Although not a common problem with LIPOs it will happen if there is problems with the charging of the pack or common if the LIPO battery has a lower grade. Have anyone taken the...

Oh, I fully agree, the bright side of the dominating Android phone sales will hopefully lead those owners to an Android tablet when they are ready to buy.
