According to the guys over @ Slatedroid [slatedroid.com] Kohl's has the 7" inch model on clearance for $59.99.

Didn't get a chance to pick one up today, but will be checking my local Kohl's in the morning.

For those who don't know, this eReader can be hacked to install apps from the Android store including the Kindle and Nook apps.

edit: androidtablets.net [androidtablets.net] is also confirming they are on clearance.

DEAD Kohl's website now shows $164.99, pricematchings no longer possible unless they take old printout & don't check Kohl's website Frown

The best firmware available here:

http://www.slatedroid.com/index.p...rsion-200/


$5 off $5 Kohl's in-store coupon and 10% online coupon link.
http://www.kohls.com/upgrade/registration/sale_alert_signup.jsp -nikecmh


here's the direct link to the Sold Out $60 price on Kohl's website
link [kohls.com]
Here is the UPC: 843967071146

Bed Bath and Beyond PM part of this deal is DEAD. According to corporate BBB, they need to find the product on the Kohl's website on the BBB computer and then print out the page. Kohl's has removed all ways of navigating to the Pandigital e-Reader, and the BBB computer system in the store does not allow text-shortening URL's to access the above link. Unless you can convince them to accept a printout of the Kohl's website (unlikely, because corp requires them to access it on the BBB computer), the PM is impossible.

The Bed Bath and Beyond deal works like this. Take a print-out of the $60 Sold Out price at Kohls.com from the WIKI to a BBB store.
Tell them it's the same price in the B&M Kohl stores, not just the website. IF they allow the pricematch a $30 rebate receipt will print out
at the register. You should also ask for the $30 rebate form which they have behind the counter. I got the $60 pricematch at BBB but they
wouldn't give me the rebate printout or form as a condition of the pricematch. So I'll just use the $30 pdf form in the WIKI, send it in with
a copy of my BBB store receipt to get the $30 rebate, final cost of the ereader $30 plus tax


There is a decent development community for this device. Visit http://www.slatedroid.com/index.php?board=43.0 for more info.

BBB receipt scan added.

Before FLASHING from one Custom Firmware to another Custom Firmware please FLASH back to STOCK Firmware 7/24 first. If you do not do so then there might be left over files from the previous firmware that will interfere with the new firmware. Might also be a good idea to back up your Apps and Data and Format the Internal and External SD cards too.

How to get PDN to Tether with Touch Pro 2 phone Tutorial

I got it to work. I am currently using JackBox 3.0.1 rom. You will need two files that I have attached(AdhocAble.apk and adhocenable_update_PD_INX7E_ENG_6410POP.zip). First Unzip AdhocAble.zip copy AdhocAble.apk onto your SD card and make sure you know how to install it too. the You will need to put the adhocenable_update_PD_INX7E_ENG_6410POP.zip(Do not unzip the file, leave it as a zip file and also make sure there is no other Rom or FirmWare still on the SD card) file on the root of the external SD card and boot up the PDN as you were doing a FirmWare upgrade by holding both the POWER button and the UP VOLUME button at the same time for 5-10 sec or until you see the FirmWare Upgrade Screen(Green Android Robot). Once you're on the main screen install the Adhocable.apk app and then run AdhocAble program and
do a "Backup Normal Setting" and then "Switch to Ad-Hoc Wifi mode". This should bring up the Wireless & network setting menu. Disconnect Wi-Fi and reconnect Wi-Fi. The SSID should show up and try to connect to your Sprint Touch Pro 2 if you have the right settings set on your Touch Pro 2.


The SSID is Hard Coded into a file called wpa_supplicant.conf.adhoc. Below is the code in the file which you can use NotePad to edit:
-------------------------------------------------
ctrl_interface=data/system/wpa_supplicant
update_config=1
eapol_version=2
ap_scan=2
fast_reauth=1
WiFiAdHoc=1

network={
ssid="AndroidTether"
scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=NONE
mode=1
priority=1
wep_key0=1111111111
}
--------------------------------------------------

If you want to change the SSID then just change the name AndroidTether to another name, do not delete the " ". You can also change the WEP password to another one. I
current have the password set to 1111111111.

On your phone, first get Data running and then run your Wifi app and set the SSID to AndroidTether and set the WEP key to 1111111111.

Your PDN should be able make a connection to your Touch Pro 2.


Even though I wrote up this tutorial, the credit goes to the people at www.slatedroid.com. Thanks to nchntrman at www.slatedroid.com for the adhocenable_update_PD_INX7E_ENG_6410POP.zip file. There are others who gave me links and tips, don't remember there names now but will add later.

I'm going to miss V but I'm heading out now.

On second thought. I just looked on ebay and new ones are selling for $60 + $10 shipping. After gas and tax, it's about the same.

General Kohls coupons of 10, 20 and 30(Kohls card only) get sent out all the time in the sunday papers. If you have a Kohls card, they normally give it to you by asking. Some people on the other Kohls PDN post have had luck getting the twenty4u online coupon being accepted by the cashiers. I tried, the cashier called over a manager that was leaving for the night, some push and pull, he allowed me the 20%.

Title should be changed to BM only, as it is not available online, and only way to get the online item page is by google. Cannot be found by searching Kohls.com, nor will it scan at the Kohls Kiosks.

isn't worth the $60. I got one for about $80 and it is super slow and it is not responsive to touch. I know it is a restrictive screen and I don't even think it is worth the $60. I even flashed different roms.

my store had these in stock on sat/sun...and there was a huge sign that said like 60% (or 65%) off *all* electronics, but also a sign showing the prices of electronic items at their normal retail price.

so when i scanned it, it came up the regular price....i even bothered asking someone, but he didn't seem to know or care and said it was just for some of the items

they had other stuff there too like some other brand book reader as well, but not going to waste my time going back though since the device supposedly sucks and probably not going to make enuf money on ebay to resell it

Just got back from my local store. The CSR said they had them all in lock up and that they weren't going to sell them. They were all going to be sent back as per orders of the manager. She said that they got calls about it all day. Someone in the other thread said they got one at that store today and that they were in back and you had to ask for them.

I bought one for my niece before christmas for a little more than this, and want another one. After putting in a better unlocked firmware, it is very usable and for its price it is pretty cool for light web browsing game play and it is a good ereader. Can play divx files if they fit on your SD card upto 32gb supported.

I checked local Kohls (Aliso Viejo) and they had none in stock tonight, will try a few other kohls tomorrow.
