Watch the 4:55 part of the video and can judge for yourself on the screen quality.

http://slickdeals.net/?sdtid=5999524&sdfpid=94280&sdpid=59197722&sdfid=9&lno=1&trd=http+www+youtube+com+watch+v+VHp&u2=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DVHpW4FMiqlU

Fun things to do with the buttons:
Soft reboot -> Vol+ and Vol-, press and hold together for 10sec
Screen Shot -> At the Same time Press Power,Vol+ and Vol-
Recovery options and tools -> When the tablet is off, press and hold the Vol- then also press and hold the Power button until the screen comes on,goes off then comes back on again. Then hit Vol+ to get to the menu
(Vol buttons may change function depending on tablet orientation,the recovery option above was done with the speaker on the top & buttons on the right)

Compatible with the Square credit card reader? Yes!

ROOT:
READ EVERYTHING BEFORE PICKING UP YOUR TABLET. YOU BOUGHT IT, ITS UP TO YOU NOT TO BREAK IT.
Google is your friend if you want to know why to root.

1: Drivers.
The PANTECH drivers are available from their website. Just install the PC suite. It's actually a handy tool and better than samsungs Kies, which I can't get to work anywhere.

2. This blog is a little confusing but read the comment by Josh_Phy for what is almost a 1 click root. Download the dropbox file, unzip it and click the batch file.
http://pantechburst.blogspot.com/...ement.html

This info is also in the Rootzwiki thread: Look at post 157
http://rootzwiki.com/topic/22981-...try1048482

You must read the whole thread. ICS info is new. The first post won't help as those instructions are for GB. Please read and become part of the community. A word of warning: Spoonfeeding is not encouraged or rewarded; be polite and respectful to people who put their time in to fully exploit the potential of these devices.

3. Titanium Backup: Buy it. This is the single most useful app in the entire marketplace. It slices, dices, chops, Juliannes, and does so much to Android that the OS wonders where it has been all its life. Once installed, back up EVERYTHING, upload it somewhere so you'll have a safe backup.
3a. Freeze bloatwear and if after a week or so, you don't notice any problem, then delete it.
3b. As you delete bloatwear, please update this wiki with what's safe and what isn't.

4. Custom Recovery (TWRP) for ICS is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/s...p=41235707 Follow the instructions.

5. Apps2SD available in the Android store for FREE. I (mavblues) use the one by Gregory House. Works fine - however, it appears to move the apps to the media partition of the internal SD, as opposed to the external SD. However, it's still useful to free up lots of space to add more apps.

If you can't root, I'll try to help, but you must learn to fish, rather than having the fish thrown to you.

As per the site, both should get 5% points. But when I add to cart it shows zero points. Also OP's link take me to the home page without any link.. Anyone has any idea?

the Front.. (facing you)is 2MP.. doesn't look too bad for Skype. The rear for taking pictures is 5MP and looks better than average and has a small LED flash.

I just ordered one and paid no tax to Wisconsin. I pay it on my annual state income tax as use tax.

Yes, it comes with Google Play upgradable to Google Market Place Store.

As far as docking stations . .. the Micro USB power connector is on the bottom of the tablet. So,, are you wanting a docking station that is powered on all the time? Not really good for the battery either. If Not.. just buy the $5 AT&T Bodyglove case previously posted. It is a stand also.

Or.. look for a universal docking station on Ebay. There are lots of them that would work.
