This last update appears to have fixed my troublesome issues. So I'm pretty happy with it now like I was when I first purchased it.
My one frustration now is that starting/closing web pages is a bit slow. I've been advised to try Opera so I'll load that on today and play with it.
That said I'm keeping watch for a dual CPU tablet with Bluetooth in the next number of months. Now I don't need such a toy. "I just wants it"
