SlideME Marketplace doesn’t work. “Update System” doesn’t work. In fact, if one were to simply open the box, plug in this tablet and attempt to Update System and/or download compatible apps from SlideME, then this piece of hardware would quickly become a useless object of frustration. Fortunately, some tech-types at androidtablets.net have come up with some quick and useful resolutions to Sylvania’s failure to launch their tablets with useable software. Do a search there and you’ll find lots of threads about it. Wish I had found that before Christmas morning…
If you want to start enjoying your Sylvania tablet instead of yelling at it….Above all, DON’T try to update the system, which will put you in an endless loop of frustration with stalled and failed updates. Also forget about using SlideME to get apps. Just search Amazon for Amazon Mobile Android Apps and start downloading apps directly to your tablet to get you started. If you want to venture into the “Real” Android Market, then you’ll have to make more additions/changes to the software on your tablet….Namely: 1) Download Universal Androot 1.6.2 beta 5 (current version) to root the tablet (won’t work the first time so you have to “Root” it a second time) and 2) Install ES File Explorer and run it as a Root Explorer. More detailed instructions can be found at androidtablets.net. There are also threads about deleting useless apps that can greatly speed up performance and extend battery life.
The tablet itself has pretty weak speakers. So if that’s important to you, you’ll be disappointed. The included stylus can be used, but I’ve had very few problems just using my fingers on the touchscreen. The screen is bright and clear and performance on most apps is good, especially for the price point of this tablet (recently $109 from jr.com). In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to beat the overall features/performance of this tablet at that price in the current tablet market. We’ve also had 3 of them connected through our home Wi-Fi for a full day now with very few dropped connections. The Android Apps from Amazon download, install and run flawlessly. Thank goodness for Amazon Apps Store…Turned 3 Christmas morning headaches into useful Android tablets!
