anyone used accessories from the newmp3 technology retailer

Post by DrFork »

Specifically the usb host adapter on 70 or the 101 keyboard+case they sell. See links below

and 101 case and keyboard

that one look perfect for using the 101 as notebook style system. I like the idea of a tablet that can serve as both a notebook (with the linux hack installed) or just as a stand-a-lone tablet.

Thanks

I bought their "keyboard-less" case (figuring that I already have a laptop 8) ). After arrival, I found out that the fit was horrendous, obscuring (an admittedly small) part of the screen and part of the camera and (useless) light sensor.

I mailed NewMP3 about it and they simply sent me a new case without charge or further questions asked. Mind you, the new case fit only marginally better, but I'm hoping the problem was with my device, rather than with their case, as other people reported perfect fits.

My 101 broke down since and is in RMA with the seller. If they replace it, I can report on the case's fit in a new tablet.

My conclusion? NewMP3 has good ethics but -- possibly -- poor products... As usual: caveat emptor.

i bought the keyboard case. the cable is very long but can be tucked away.
the fit is very well! the keyboard works fine, but it does tend to pop out when beeing handled(when opening the case)
but very well site, quick service.
AND ONE TIP:
do an order till the payment step.
then cancel.
you will get an email with a discount code ;)

I bought the leather case for my 101 (without keyboard) and find it to be an excellent product. Also bought a replacement charger which again does what it says. I have found their products to be good and their delivery to be prompt.
