Re: Google Android

Just picked up a refurbished Advent Vega tablet for my Dad as he wants to learn to use a computer and I thought a tablet would be the easiest route. £117 delivered (via Currys/PC World's eBay store). It's a nice spec (Tegra 2 CPU like my Transformer) and once I've rooted it and installed Honeycomb on it (it comes with Froyo installed) it's going to be great.

Nice but if IIRC you will have the same problem I had with my hannspad if you switch to honeycomb and its that you lose flash due to lack of video hardware acceleration. Is ics not an option for the vega?

Re: Google Android

IIRC Flash works fine under VegaComb, being a Tegra 2 based tablet (not that lack of Flash would matter for Dad anyway as he wouldn't even know what that means). There is an ICS ROM but it's only an alpha build at the moment.

The hannspad is tegra 2. Uses the same chip set as the vega and there are many variants. One of the more popular roms for the hannspad is even called vegantab after the vega.

nandroid is cool too if you want to flip and change between roms

Get the 'quickboot' app from the market to get in to recovery quicker without having to press power, vol down and another button etc

Re: Google Android

Well took the plunge last night for my SGS II via the ODIN method as my KIES software managed to go bonkers again, so didn't feeling like trusting it to update my phone

ICS is a definate improvement - the SGS II was fast anyway but it's got faster, although due to the TouchWiz it's not significantly different at the moment.

One thing I have noticed so far is it seems that Facebook profile pictures no longer sync to Contacts

I'm amazed its getting it, didn't HTC say when ICS was announced that no phone older than the sensation would be getting it? Good on them really, Doesn't that give HTC the oldest handset running ICS when its released?
Best thing I ever did was choosing a HTC handset, Absolutely love sense and my EVO is the best phone Ive ever had.

Re: Google Android

Anybody use an Airplay app for their Android device? I've been looking at some since the new XBMC has airplay connectivity but I just don't trust them at the moment. Any recommendations?
