    Nice. Waiting to hear more since I'm in the same boat no need or interest for a tablet but Nexus 7 has the right price so maybe...

    The Nexus 7 should be pretty much bang for the buck. For around 200-300$ you aren't going to expect a high end android experience, but you will be able to do all the latest and greatest. It should be good if you want a tablet for day to day use :)

    Just remember it has no back camera so if you want to snap pics or record video that's outta the question!

    I got Widget Locker, $2.50, but so worth it, all the free lock screen apps sucked... my phone is not rooted btw. I only got that lockscreen to get rid of the clock though. The clock you see there is a live wallpaper called WP Clock. I got the free version. Its cool. :D

    I gots a noob android question.... Im picking up a NATPC M009S RTB ULTIMATE for under £100 (price went up while i was sleeping!!!) that should be here on monday.

    Ive paid for a few apps on my Xperia Arc S, would i be able to carry on using the same paid for apps or would i need to pay again?

    I know that the apps/payments are registered to your gmail account so you can keep downloading them as many times as you like, but would the app still be 'valid' if you use a difference device?

    The apps are still 'valid' as long as the google account is. I was able to download everything from 3 different phones, and two different tablets no problem.. just note, some may not like the item it's downloading to... But, that'll work it self out once you throw it to the developer the issue.

    I've always been under the impression that taking pictures with a tablet is about as bad as walking to your car and forgetting to put your pants on.

    well it's awkward sure - but if you have a quality camera it works just fine. also if you have a case that doubles as a stand, it's a stationary camera.

    again - awkward definitely - but other than that there is nothing "bad" about it.

    Blah... Everything with cameras... Next, they'll mass produce cameras in your trapper keeper.. bad enough I seem them on MP3 players... That's why I love my Nexus so much... blah, it didn't care about the camera.. That's why I spent money on a Dslr. Not because my phone has the 1337 camera set up with both front and back.

    Ok I have got the thunderbolt back in action and have been trying new roms. The issue I have came accross is that I cannot use Wireless tether for root user when any NON "sense" roms? It starts the tether but never allows anything to connect.

    Are you using Wifi Tether 3.2 experimental? Try checkmarking routing fix and choose netd for setup method. Sorry for not getting back with you sooner B, I am going to start working on your theme on Thursday.

    I am thinking about to buy the Samsung Galaxy Note phone.
    Does anyone here own it? If yes then how is it?

    My friend has one, it is pretty good, not as smooth as some of the newer phones wait for the Note 2 ;) Battery life is amazing
