Re: Nexus7

Paper stats are one thing, but software usability doesn't show up there. After going thru update after buggy update with my Archos 70, my Nexus 7 has been a dream to use out of the box. Also - the ROM and accessory support for the Nexus is already better than for my Archos 70 which is at the end of ...

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

Announced and up for pre-order. Some compromises with no rear camera, no micro sd. But still a heck of a value.

Re: Asus Memo 370T -> Nexus Tablet?

I've seen the same rumors. Some said $150 as well. Any sub-200 price would be an incredible value IMO. You mean 1080P on a 10inch screen I guess? I've been pretty content even with the A70 7" screen at 800x480. To be capable of seeing better than 720p on a 7 inch screen you have to be inside of ~16 ...

Re: Asus Memo 370T -> Nexus Tablet?

Looks like they are indeed using quadcore @ 1.3ghz. And Android 4.1 (jellybean?)

$250 or less and I'll preorder whenever available.

Re: [70IT] Android 4?

Yes, almost guaranteed to be stuck at 2.x, but the dramatization in that link is pretty silly. I've used devices with Honeycomb and ICS. There are some nicer visuals, but no features I'm really missing in 2.x. However, I am looking forward to a newer 7 inch tablet in the next few months (either Sams...

Re: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

It's good news for all of us consumers. Between this and the Nexus Tablet, there will be some solid 7" options for ~$200. For me personally, I would stay with Archos only if their price point is around 50% of the big name companies. Any higher price than that and I'll go with a name brand that has a...

Re: Formatted SD Card? You would think.

I think there is a partition on your SD card that Windows is not seeing. Do you have access to a Linux box where you could try formatting the card? If not, try running linux temporarily from a cd (#3 here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download)

Re: busted screen - anyone know a how to get files back off

I think you need to make a selection to switch on the HDMI output, right?

You can still use the mouse/hub idea to "click around" until you hit mount.

Re: Pre-purchase Tablet newbie

Might be cutting it close with your timeframe, but there should be an announcement for a 7" Google/Asus tablet in the next month or two. You can google "nexus tablet" or "asus memo" for rumors until there is something official.

Re: Change Default App Install location?

apps2sd is your unrooted option.
urukdroid would be my recommended rooted option.
