SmartV7 Arrived Today - Review Underway

Thanks for sending the device, you know who you are. I will begin testing it asap and have a review soon. Also thanks to Alex and Eletroworld for the opportunity to review this device.

The device is currently loaded with the factory firmware. WinCE and Android are in currently, but I know I can change them (or at least Android). As I thought, the build quality is exactly the same as my Q7. More coming soon!

ColdSun, any chance you can add to the review a reference to the Q7 overclocked version FW.
there are two:
official 800mhz - http://en.smartdevices.com.cn/Suppor...912/30-49.html

unofficial tuned version - http://www.jiongtang.com/fourm/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=922

this maybe a very strong terning point for me because even that the bigger memory on the V7 and the HDMI (don't need it) are strong points, the cheaper Q7 might do the trick with this OC versions

Do you know when this review is likely to go up? I'm on the verge of ordering a V7, and would like to see your review before making my final decision.

I'm guessing that with Coldsun now being involved with CarryPad that any reviews would have to appear there rather than here or elsewhere (it kind of says that on his website www.coldsuncreations.com)

I will still post reviews here (or linked to CarryPad). I know I've been sort of absent lately, and to be honest it isn't even CarryPad. The last few weeks I've been finishing up a new version of an application I'm writing for Dell (I might have mentioned I work there on my coldsuncreations site before). It has been under-the-gun to finish and it was very complex, but I'm almost there. Another day or so. My sincere apologies for the delay on the reviews. Not only do I have the SmartV7 review to post, but also the Skytone A700 Linux Tablet (8.9") from Eletroworld. THESE WILL BE UP. Bear with me.

My early thoughts on the Skytone A700 - very well done linux tablet. You won't be putting this in your pocket, but it makes a great sofa surfing experience. I'm having problems getting FBReader to turn pages, as the device has no buttons and tapping on the screen isn't doing anything. I think it is just a setup issue though, and I'll get it figured out.

I noticed that price of A700 is ~280$ so it's actually in range with TouchBook from AI . Where are you 200$ dream device .
