Can't find specs on product. Anyone know what processor? Battery life? Is there a Gingerbread firmware. My Nook Color (1Ghz sigle core, 512MB Ram) runs Gingerbread ROMS much smoother than ICS or JB ones.
Or a cheap HTPC. Look at the pictures, looks like it has HDMI since they have it hooked up to a TV. Cheaper than an android stick.
Yup the the specs show this as having mini HDMI out, so there is easily $30 worth of potential here. I still mainly use my Touchpad, but I might use this for score keeping in my pistol league if I can get the app loaded. Right now we use rooted nooks which suck for touch screen interface and are buggy.
Mine arrived yesterday. That's fast shipping. It's more than I expected. I thought it would be a brown box refurb. Other than a "refurbed in Mexico" sticker on the front of the retail box, I can't tell it's not new.
Mine arrived as well. Great condition other than the volume + button being pretty hard to press, feels like it is stuck while volume - is nice and clicky. Browsing the Internet is pretty darn slow, too frustrating for use in my opinion (tried the default as well as Dolphin Lite). Also, the battery life seems pretty horrible on the first full charge, although maybe that will improve? The low res screen was expected, so oh well.
Now for the good- I LOVE the size weight, especially switching from an ipad mini. It is totally serviceable as an ereader so I'll probably use it as that. Also loaded some .avi and 720p mkv files on an sd and to my surprise they actually look pretty good, despite the low res screen. I haven't watched a full file yet but from the test run the mkv was playing nice and smooth using the default video player. I'm curious as to how the hdmi out looks ( you can change the output settings to several 720p or 1080p resolutions).
