It did boot fine the first time. However, after the second boot something strange started happening. In the lower right hand corner the battery/wifi connection box would continuously pop up and go away repeatedly. It would also bring up the settings window almost as if someone was continously touching the screen i guess.
I then did a factory reset and the first boot was fine. However, when i turned it back on it started doing it again.
It appears that the Iconia Tab has a screen flicker issue but I'm curious if that is what I'm seeing. And if so what are my options? I would like to keep the thing and don't want to pay full price. So should I call acer, return to walmart when they have inventory, or is there a fix out there.
When you say "flicker" do you mean a VERY brief flash, like the speed of a blink of the eye, of some crazy shape?
My A100 has also done this ever since I got it. I swear that every time it happens it looks like my screen is cracked, but upon close examination, there really are no cracks in the screen. No random apps or windows pop up or anything like that, but when the flash occurs, the screen will turn funny colors and a crack in the shape of a funny looking X will appear all in the blink of an eye. But its not very often that this happens, so I'm not really gonna bother with it. Plus it was fresh from the box, never a display.
ummmmm............ could you repeat that?
