I've allowed a whole lot of updates. Where I am now I actually have a great Internet connection, unlike the satellite ISP I have at home, so this is a good time to update all the devices. I'm still finding the Vox very sluggish compared to before its hiatus. And browsing on the Internet is pretty much impossible now. The device freezes constantly and it's just plain annoying. I haven't tried Angry Birds or other big apps like google maps. I sure do like that the sleep of death thing is fixed. Now I don't have to leave it plugged in all day when I'm not using it.
I'll keep at and see if it improves. I've been reading a kindle book and it's fine with that, although the app is often slow to open. I must confess I haven't launched the kobo app yet. Maybe letting that update will help.
