At the moment, I'm not interested in hacking. I'm willing to root 
another vendors product if I need to. ;-)

I've looked at it, haven't seen one in person. I'm disappointed with the 
low resolution and the weak processor compared to the Kindle Fire HD or 
the Nook HD+ 9 tablets. Both of those tablets can be rooted and have 
full-blown Android installed on them. I like the storage expansion slot, 
just wish it didn't use MicroSD - have had no luck using SD cards, micro 
or full size, for reliability. I wonder if standard USB external card 
readers work with such tablets?

Anyway, thanks for the reminder. Any of them might make useful control 
surfaces, yes?
