For me personally its worth the problems because I need the keyboard dock and just love the freedom of android.

My two cents

The thing is if he used an iPad he can't watch sports online since it won't support it. Whereas on the tablet we've tested it and it's been great. His main use was for sports, but he also has started to go on youtube.

So it's been day 2 and so far it's been okay. How long after ICS update does it normally start going funny?

The only negative thing I've seen (which I haven't ever had on my smartphone) is the screen flickering on the youtube app for some reason where the keyboard comes up. And sometimes when on a video page, but if I take HD off it greatly reduced. Probably specific to certain videos. It's not a big issue or anything as it's not the ain use of the tablet.

If you go to the youtube website and click "desktop" at the bottom of the page it acutally works better than the mobile site. Get "stick it" videoplayer, that enables you to watch youtube videos while browsing other sites (android exclusive


in combo with overskreen browser app its an amazing experience that only android can provide! If you have any questions just ask them here and we will try to assist you any way we can
Btw download ics browser +, the default gives me some weird freezes.

There is no 'normally', its random :/.
Some gets it every day (I did on stock asus ics), some gets it rarely, some not at all.

What I think most people here will agree on though, is that the custom roms available generally holds a lot higher stability.
On custom roms my tablet never ran less than 60h before crashing, and EOS build 19 ran for ~230h before giving me a SOD (its a bit hard to say the exact uptime, as I was asleep when it happened ).

I've checked to find the app costs 1.19. Don't really want to spend on an app yet. Have downloaded the browser app though.

I didn't realize so many people were having problems. Mine has only had one random reboot, ever. I'm running Megatron which is CM 9 based, and I won't go back to the ASUS firmware, ever. I like the feel of AOSP better.
