Re: Firmware 2.3.81 released - report bugs here

Battery seems a little less. Running Memory booster app + Bitdefender may be adding to it. Overall ver...

Re: soft buttons

two things I've noticed is yes it does disappear... but it seems a due to low memory when the using the A70 alot or say on a intensive game. The same what may make the A70 crash.
