looks nice~

currently deciding between this and the p76ti... I guess what I'd like to know is the usual, i.e. UI lag & video/batt performance...

btw, I read on tablet republic that were some screen bleed?
Sure, currently coming up with a video for you guys to see the performance of ICS on this tablet. So far its pretty smooth for me.

Initial testing using a black background on this tablet didnt produce any screen bleed for mine. However, the viewing angles is quite evident though.

I thought android apps are written in java and so should be machine or cpu independent
Yea, thought so also. Tried running ARM apps but it doesnt work on this tablet though =/

Hmmm. How about Dolphin HD (web browser), MX Video Player (the best video player app IMHO), and Game Dev Story Lite (game). All are free! Thank you for your help
The market that came with the tablet didnt have these applications available. Managed to unlock the full market, but the package for these 3 apps cannot be installed. Still trying to get these apps to work.

Maybe you can take a look at this link [dev]MagicCode---run a arm apk in mips device - Page 2 - xda-developers

This app helps to recompile ARM apps to be compatible with MIPS

Also wanted to try MIPS... but this app compatibility :S

Can help check whether "X-City" by Aidi Games is available for non-NEON processor?

Market Ref: https://market.android.com/details?i...aidigame.xcity
Couldnt install the app as well. Guess thats a limitation of this Platform. Can refer to the link i posted earlier and see if it helps you

I got my package for 560 rmb. Package 1 plus express courier to my friend house.

Arriving next week.
Thats nice! Another fellow Paladin user

Just an update on what I managed to achieve on this tablet.

- Install Clockworkmod for this tablet and Managed to get Root Access. I.e SuperUser/Busybox and all that goodies (Thanks to the guys at xda developers)

- ADB debugging for this tablet

- Install Dalvik Turbo for the MIPS platform

- Gain full market access (Though some apps are still not working well)

If anyone is interested, I can post a full guide on how to install the above. Would be doing the video review next

There are a few PDF readers preinstalled in this table though, like quickoffice pro and pdf go. But i still prefer EzPDF though.

These chinese apps that come preinstalled works well with this tablet, though its pretty slow in streaming

repel89, can you please test the real battery of this tablet? Also how the wifi strength with wifi analyser using your mobile & range (like how far away from the router/AP with how many walls blocking) .

If I hear correctly, those HD videos you tested are from youtube? Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't they 720p with 1080p source?

If possible, can you try these sample videos? (without the 2160p)
XhmikosR's builds home/samples/2160p/DucksTakeOff/=

Thanks

Hey, sorry it didnt manage to test it indepth as the unit has been sold already. But with my experience in handling the tablet, the tablet did take a long time to charge via the wall charger. I believe the battery stats wasnt calibrated as well.

Wifi was also pretty decent, partly because the tests were conducted near the router about 2m away. Didnt get the time to do a in depth test as well

Just checked the sample videos i used. Indeed they werent Full HD, they were running at 1920x816 instead of 1920x1080. Apologize for the mix up
