Superpad

My newest slate. Android 2.1 256M Ram (ok could be better) Has GPS which is nice. I/O is superb 2 Full size USB 2 MiroSD slots, RJ45 Ethernet port, HDMI port and charging port. Firmware is being updated. With only 256M Ram 2.3 or later may never happen. 16x9 screen is fair as ereader but very good as comic reader. Audio books work well. Audible widget is installed. So while I like the GPS and I/O of the superPad, I like the RAM, 2.2 and 4:3 screen of the Apad (iMX515)

Android-Phone=Problems

The android ecosystem is depending on the phone ID and is causing problems for devices w/o one.

I can't buy paid apps and Skype for android requires a phone number.

Because I'm on the bleeding edge here I don't expect an answer soon. But I do expect one is coming. More android tablets are being released so when there is enough demand it will get fixed.

Not Badpad it's Moo.

My name for my Eken M003 Adroid Touchpad is Moo.

On Moo the VPN settings are missing when I go into settings. I was hoping I could remote into my work PC from this device.

I found a way to do it.

At http://www1.brothersoft.com/mobile/5-vpn-70741.html I found a appt that lets me in to configure and make a VPN connection into a standard windows environment.

Then With http://www.brothersoft.com/mobile/android-vnc-viewer-61021.html I got a VNC client.

I'm still learning. Can't send a Ctrl-Alt-Del yet. But so far so good.

At work where the WiFi connection is inside the firewall (no VPN) performance is pretty good.

this is bringing Moo out of toy and into can use for work.

More later |||||Paul|||||

Android Touchpad

I'm calling it the badPad.

 

 

Good: $136   

8" Color Touchpad

SD slot good to 16Gig

WI/Fi b/g/n

 

 

Bad Everything else:

Only 128M Ram

533MHZ

800*600 Screen

Android 1.6 not 2.x

 

I think this may be too slow and memory constricted to use. but at $136.00 I'm willing to try and let you know.
