"Love this new toy!"on by terginq
Pros Does Skype perfectly and has two camera's, fairly fast, availability of Android apps. I hear that Amazon is about to allow Canadians access to their Android Market.
Cons Sound is a bit low
Summary I just purchased the Pandigital SuperNova yesterday at Future Shop in Canada for $179.00. This was a boxing day special and was $50.00 off the regular price. I came home and once I figured out what file I needed, I searched for it on Google, easily found it, clicked download and then went to the download icon in settings and installed it. Works perfectly. I get both vids..mine and whoever I'm talking to. My only complaint is the audio is a bit low...I'll try it with earphones. The Skype file I searched for isSorry... the file you need for Skype on your Pandigital SuperNova is:
It downloaded from Mediafire.com
We all thought the video quality was definitely acceptable for such a cheap unit. I was also amazed that this unit has two camera's and does video. Can't wait to try watching movies on it!

I accidently put a dash instead of an underscore in the first link I posted.
Pros This is the ONLY tablet in this price range with a 1gHz CPU, Bluetooth, and a capacative screen. It ships with a very stable version of Gingerbread and upgrade to ICS is coming this spring. It has run every app that I've installed on it.
Cons Display is not very good for reading for long periods. If your primary need is an eReader get a Kobo Vox. I was hoping to tether it to my phone's GPS but can't because it does not support Mock Locations.
Summary Instructions for installing Android Market can be found all over the internet and that is the first thing I did when I took it out of the box. Much to my chagrin, many apps will not download because Android Market says they are not compatible with my device. This has to do with the (lack of) hardware definitions in it's Android Market profile. This should be solved with the upcoming ICS upgrade that will include full Android Market support (according to Pandigital.) In the mean time you can add SlideMe and FDroid markets, install Barcode Scanner from the Android Market to download using QR Codes, and download and install .apk files. I have no complaints about the sound quality because I use a Bluetooth stereo headset when listening to music or watching videos. I have no complaints about the screen viewing angle because I POINT IT AT MY FACE WHEN I'M LOOKING AT IT! I will however agree that the display is dim and almost useless in direct sunlight. All in all, some compromises but still a great value for the money.
Pros runs everything that i've thrown at it, it's quick and its very user friendly. runs gingerbread and i've had no hangups,stall outs, or bad episodes since i opened it up christmas eve. runs most excellently. and all the apps are free (so far)
Cons none yet, but stay tuned.
Summary on a scale of 1-10, i would give this I-PAD killer (which it really is) a solid 8.
Pros I love all the available apps. I have installed Words with friends, Scanner radio, and much more. Great for Skype or Tango apps.
Cons camera quality is fair, I personally would of enjoyed something better. and maybe the audio can be improved, but it does the job.
Summary I would say a definite IPad killer. I would never spend 500 for a tablet. I bought this for more than half its price. Which does EXACTLY the same thing as an Ipad can do. Hello! Wifi settings awesome as it keeps previous setting memorized for easier reconnect at a later time. Bluetooth transfer files works, very easy to use. Love the fact it has 2 cameras. Every app Ive installed has worked. But like another user mentioned. Skype will work if you use the previous version file found in mediafire.com. Also, Getjar appears to be the only place to find/download apps. But if you install amazon apps. there you will find a whole lot more. I am going to try to download the code reader and see if this makes accessing other market android apps available.
Pros Front & Back facing Cameras, sounds nice, USB port, HDMI port,buttons are on the tablet which works well for older people
Cons NO Android Market Place. This Makes all VIDEO CHAT application almost impossible. If you do not have The Android Market Place you will NOT be able to use SKYPE. Don't bother trying. You have this GET JAR (app store)
Summary Not bad for the money, but what is the point in having 2 cameras with Video capabilities if you are not able to do Video chat. If you can afford another $50.00 buy something better with the Android Market place that has Better applications.
Poor customer service
