I got the Vizio on woot last time it was offered and was wondering if anyone had suggested apps or stuff like that.

One main problem I have is that firefox isn't working very well on it, and the native droid app doesn't have adblock so woot is a pain in the ass to use. Does anyone have any ideas?

Still single, can't imagine why.

You could try to root it and install AdAway to kill out the ads.

I make YouTube videos: youtube.com/lufthansa7478

I also have shirts to trade, so PM me... I dare you to!

I suppose I could if I hadn't upgraded it, no one is really working on it though so there isn't much support. Still, I appreciate the suggestion.

can you install amazon android applications from the amazon appstore on it? they have some different browsers available.

I don't know if it will work on the tablet, but I use dolphin lite on my smart phone and haven't had any problems with any sites ads.

Dolphin browser doesn't seem to have adblock either. I might try the amazon app store.

If you need a .asia domain, DotAsia Organisation Ltd. is giving out incentives depending on how long you register a domain for.

For 1 year, you get a pair of earphones.
For 2 years, a stylus pen
For 5 years, a bluetooth keyboard (no number pad, but I assume there are numbers on the keys as an alternate function)
and for 10 years, (and the reason I mention this) you get a 7" android tablet with a half gig of ram and 4Gb of storage.

Not too exciting really, but if you need a .asia domain anyway, it's a nice incentive to go for the full 10 years.

not the same, but you could get asiandominatrix.asia, which appears to be available :^)

I'm sort of surprised no one has taken that one already. Certainly cheaper than it's .xxx counterpart (asiandominatrix.xxx) $80 registration fee ... ouch!

Do I have to wait 10 years to get the tablet?

Another complaint.
Gmail doesn't update very often, I had expected it to be instantaneous, but I basically have to refresh it manually. (yes, I have background data and auto-sync turned on)

Gmail doesn't let add people in my contacts to my mail, unless I go through the contacts app. (so I can't just start typing like I usually do.

Talk doesn't seem to work right anymore either.

They say the tablet comes directly from the org that runs the .asia registry.

I also found out that to get a .asia doamin, you have to have a business presence in Asia. Not too useful more most of us.

The low screen resolution was a real turn off for me, but I know people like it.

seriously? low screen resolution? the screen is awesome. Movies/tv look GREAT. Plus, it's only 7 inches. It's perfect for what it is meant for.

Well, that is just my opinion. I'm not saying it is a bad product, just that for me, I would want something a little more powerful.

I've had my tf300 for a few days now so I thought I would post my thoughts.

1 battery life
After rooting and implementing a small modification I seem to be getting close to the mfg reported 10 hours. Charges fairly fast, I think in under an hour. Proprietary charger port has pros and cons.

2 screen
IPS panel looks good from any angle, is visible in bright daylight, although not as well as in the shade or indoors. If I went to the beach I would use it under a beach umbrella. Resolution is fine, I doubt my eyes would notice a denser screen. Touch seems fine for a capacitive screen, although I am hoping to see better technology in the future. The horizontal resolution is rather diminished by the task bar, but that is true for all devices.

3. Size, weight
It is too big to fit into a pocket, but you should know that. It can be held with one hand, but after a while you may wish to rest it on something.

4. Speed
Seems fine. Everything save for some flash based content loads at a comparable speed to a pc.

5. Camera
No flash or zoom. At the full 8mp it looks kind of blurry, but at say 2mp it looks fine, but most p&s cameras seem to be like this. (I use a DSLR) The front camera is ok for videochatting, but don't expect to be taking photos with it.

6. Sound
I am not an audiophile, but the speaker seems to be quite loud while still sounding good. Note that it is a mono speaker for all intents a purposes.

7. Buttons
Only 3 hard buttons kind of sucks, but such is life.

8. Sensors
GPS wifi and such all seem to work fine.
