So I ordered one of these things and should have it by mid week. My question is what can we do with it. I was disappointed with the lack of netflix. What is everyone else doing with theirs till touchdroid starts testing?

Wait for android and hopefully get some netflix love? I think that would be cool.
I'm probably going to use it for web browsing as well as a music player on long trips so my phone isn't tied up.

even "when" android does come you are going to realize fast that its a neutered device.

most smart phones can do what it can do already.

dont waste your time with it....it dont have gps or tv-out and only one micro-usb port

Negative!
most people do.
alot of these devices without 3g/4g do NOT have standalone GPS!
people are going to be let down really fast.
Aside from the lack of TV out (and really, who cares? I already have a PS3, 360, WDTV, and DirecTV) it's no more neutered than any other recent wifi tablet.

What good is GPS going to do for you when you don't have a data connection to get maps? Besides, I already have a BT GPS puck if I ever do need it.

I'm looking forward to couch surfing, playing Angry Birds, and watching movies on the plane/in the car. As stated above, I already have multiple content-streaming devices connected to my tv. The lack of a tv-out doesn't bother me.

for $99, I'll take the extra screen realastate even if my phone can do everything it can. The dual core processor looks nice too. As for GPS, you'll be able to use that when android gets ported by using the GPS receiver in your phone via bluetooth.

Same here. My small screen sucks for watching stuff. The bigger will be great for that kinda stuff

People really connect their phones to their TV? For what? I must be missing out on something. I cannot think of any reason why I would even want to.

The FaceBook integration is great. E-mail sets up REAL easy and most HP printers. The TP found my C6180 PhotoSmart and set it up without asking me one question. I sit in the morning and watch the photo slide show while I am making my coffee. I read the USA Today / Wall Street journal while I sip it down and respond to all my e-mails printing out the ones I need to reference for the day. G+ runs well but would love to see integration like the FB. I would like a NOOK app. I just don't do Kindle. I would also like a nice free RDP app. The other thing to do is Simple Bible Pro... great program fo gettin' yo religion on!

I recommend getting PreWare working and adding the additional tabs for your organization of apps.

ya i totally want this thing..hopeing that android gets ported. but if not...i wouldnt mind just having it as a couch browser/on the go browser. GPS issue isnt really an issue to me...as i would just use my phone anyways.

you probably dont know google maps has a cache setting.
it lets you download google maps in 10square mile files.
pretty big areas....when you need another area you just load that file up
works great with NO connection at all....but you need GPS to see where you are at on that map
