I just wanted to thank you all for all the help and tips you have provided.
The gps was driving me crazy, as I could not get the satelites to find the signal. Downloaded the "GPS Status" app and within minutes, 7 satelites had a signal.
I was also unsure of which case to get but after reading thorugh all these posts, I decided on the ebay $4.99 for 2 deal.
This devices more than meets my needs. I wanted something portable, with wifi and decent battery life, that I could quickly use, instead of turning on my netbook and having to wait for it to boot and this is fitting the need perfectly.
Yes, it's an older processor, and only 8gb, but for my primary needs, which is web surfing, this thing is great.
