- ARM ARM600MHz + DSP550MHz
- Android 2.1 (Eclair)
Cheap. Affordable. Low price. Other choices cost more.
For a resistive screen, pretty responsive to finger touch/press. Comes with a stylus.
After an update, the Market is indeed there as others have said. But... see cons.
Firmware loaded is pretty bad. But, as others have mentioned you need to go to the Curtis website and download the update (see Other). The instructions are pretty awful. If you're somewhat windows saavy, you'll be okay.
The Market... And Android 2.1 (Eclair). So - you may be familiar with google's new Play Store. Eclair isn't compatible with the Play Store, as near as I can tell. That means a TON of apps won't be available. Still... seems like you could do basic web browsing, e-mail, maybe facebook, and I think youtube. No Netflix. Doesn't show up when you search for it. No Angry Birds (I'm not sure it would run or not anyway).
If Curtis would release a 2.2 update, then I think it would help with getting "more" out of the Market (at least for a little bit longer).
Track ball doesn't seem that useful to me... but I haven't had it that long.
Update process short version.... you get a zip file and expand it. Then you turn off the "MID" (your tablet), and plug it in to your computer through USB while holding the ESC key. Getting the driver right in Windows 7 was a little clunky, I had to use the device manager to get Windows to ask me where I wanted it to get a driver. Then, you run a program from the zip file, point it to an update.img file that also came out of the zip file, and after a few minutes the update is done! I'd charge a bit before doing the update - I stupidly did it at like a 5% charge and then realized that wasn't very smart.
I will come back and review some more after I spend a little bit more time with it.
