    That is how I feel as well. I just thought "Oh shit this thing is a computer and susceptible to the same virus's that a PC is...", but I just don't know if it is worth the battery drain.
    After running the app, it found nothing (had the phone since Oct. 2012).

    scaremongering thats all it is....

    Mcafee and Kaspersky saying "oh shit, your android phone can be hacked!! wtfbbqermagerd buy our products naow!!"

    I think we will eventually need Anti Virus for our devices, but not just yet. so long as youre careful about what you click when surfing and the kind of apps you download and install, i dont see a reason to install an anti-virus.

    I had Lookout for a while, but I don't browse to risky sites or install apps from anywhere other than Play or Amazon, so I never put it back on after I switched phones.

    Possibly the holy grail of cheap tablets?

    IPS screen, decent res, dual core, 10.1" with 6hrs battery life. I think its somewhat on par with a 10.1" Galaxy Tab2 with a ever so slightly more mediocre screen

    Curse you google. Where are my rights to not view your ads!? And stuff like the chromebooks being cloud bound. Did they go and hire an apple exec? Steve jobs didn't really die...

    Ya.

    Oh, beside the point entirely; Did anyone else see the latest humble bundle? All android compatible games. Got it yesterday, I've only played the crayon one and Solar 2, but they're pretty great games. The rest looked pretty cool too. They also work on PC

    I got the wife a Iview 9.7" with a Dual core Cortex A9 Rockchip 3066 1gb ddr3 setup and the Rockchip does in fact ROCK!!! LOL

    I think IPS screen are nice but unnecessary because you will be stairing right at it most of the time..I'd just make sure its res is at least 1024x768 and a good sized battery such as a 4000 mAH 7.4v or larger Rockchip like juice LuLzzz...

    just throw a custom ROM on there and be years ahead of them. i cant give advice on which roms, because i've only got the S1. a MIUI port would be best imo.

    I have a Razr and use verizon, I had been using motocast to stream pics and music from my pc to my phone. Out of the blue motocast on my pc stopped working. Tried the usual, uninstall/reinstall, but the program will not even run/open. I have not called yet thought I would try here first. Any ideas?

    Finally got my 4.2.2. OTA for my Verizon Galaxy Nexus yesterday morning after being on JDX for about a month and quite enjoying it. My battery needs a replacement, and I think I'm either going to downgrade to something like a RAZR M for its smaller size, or try to hold out until I can find out more about a Verizon HTC One.

    I might be interested in one of those ever-so-slightly-extended batt's that still fits under the standard door. I've got a case meant for the GSM version on that barely fits already, so no go on an extended. Either that or if it's got less charge cycles than my current, might be worth getting if it's cheap. Just don't really want to dump much money into a phone that I'm planning on replacing soon, but send me a PM with price anyway :) Thanks.

    Yep seen it, definitely an awesome phone. Hardware is top notch, screen is amazing. Only thing letting it down is the camera!

    Too bad my phone plan is 24 months, gotta wait till next year for a new phone :roll:
