"Good tablet/e-reader out-of-the-box, with more to come."4.0 starson by edogCO
Pros: No 'walled garden' so can easily access my current library and add more thru expansion SD-slot.
User-replaceable battery. Internal memory upgradeable to at least 16GB.
Cons: Slower, resistive touchscreen, but sensitivity seems to improve with each firmware upgrade (latest 8/6/10).
File system to handle large amounts of media files could be better, more like an mp3-player.
Summary: Functions well as an e-reader, out-of-the box from Pandigital. MUCH less-expensive than units with similar capabilities, and seems to have good support for enhancements by mfg and on-line community. NOT an iPad, but a worthy alternative that should improve with future firmware releases and user hacks.
