Yes, however gps status seems not to work at all. Maps hits 10 meter accuracy.

Thanks for the suggestions I am intimately familiar with the Android application life cycle, I only mention the stopping of applications & airline mode for debugging / troubleshooting purposes.

After two wipes and it exhibiting the same extraordinarily slow behavior I am beginning to think it is specific to my device I am very curious though as I didn't have this issue within the first 24hours of having the tablet. Now it is happening right after boot, when I type it will stick on a key and use the alternate localized version of a letter, typing in general lags far behind input and I can consistently reproduce the effects without any additional installed software also with or without registering with a google account.

So hopefully I can swap out the tablet for a new one and see if I have less issues, anyway just wanted to given an update that wiping/factory reset had zero effect on my issue.

Double voting for a dedicated forum.

haven't completly isolated issue, disabled wifi and didn't notice another wake up. Currently trying no wifi notifications and wifi off when screen off.

Getting heaps of fc from from quite a few apps and a few issues installing apps from the market (where it will not download for a while or not at all)

cheers

Aha! Was just on the same track. I have checked the option "when the screen turns off" under "Wi-Fi disconnect policy " and it seems that the problem has disappeared .
But yeah, maybe not. Let's hope so. I did check the log file but there are no log messages to work with.

Mate,

Have you tried clearing the Market Cache/Data from Settings/Applications/Manage applications?

The integrated nemoplayer app has the best performance among the players I tried (rockplayer, standard android player, qq player) but it's not perfect.

I am currently working on rooting my Iconia, I want to be able to uninstall apps and also to see about putting the AOSP of HoneyComb on it and see if there is that big of a performance jump... But none-the-less I am tethering to my Sprint Evo on CM7 and my T-Mo MyTouch 4G on CM7. Picks them up no issue.

I am not having the on and off 15 minutes, The only issue I have noticed is that FB will say connection failed or something alot and then hitting refresh will bring it back.. does it alot, but that is the only thing so far, enjoy the host USB as well it is badass.

PLEASE MAKE A DEDICATED FORUM, I WILL CREATE A NEW ROOTING THREAD PLEASE! Thank you
