Got it on Wednesday.

It comes in a plain white box, and just comes with the usb wall charger and the tablet itself. No usb cable to connect to pc.

I was surprise at the condition, aside from not having the original packaging, you really couldn't tell it apart from a new one. No scratches on screen, or the back, nothing.

The battery was practically at zero percent when I turn it on, so I had to charge it before I can play with it.

It has Gingerbread installed.

Hope this helps.

Yeah mine came in the exact same way. Just a white box with a white charge cable, unit was pristine. Also was at 0% and GB loaded.

Charged, rooted, upgraded and reloaded my apps from my Archos 70. Thoroughly loving this unit.

Wife is complaining It's too heavy but doesn't really feel that much heavier than the Archos.

I ordered one earlier today. For $190, I'm not complaining.

I was going to spend $170 on a Touchpad anyways, so might as well buy a refurb instead of used for $20, and from a place I can at least return to if need be (I CAN return, right?).


I'm very surprised it doesn't come with a cable for PC. Can you not use the charger cable? (Me assuming it uses the same USB port for charging as syncing, and assuming the charger is just a USB wall plug with a USB cable).

I'm assuming you can. I want to try this but really want the Asus memo. The return policy may be my best bet.

Just noticed this thread. I didn't realize it didn't include the stylus or the USB cable. I don't care about the stylus but I am wondering about the USB cable. What kind does it use? My captivate uses standard mini-usb, if thats what it uses, then I got a million of those lying around. Otherwise I need to get on the ball and get a cable ordered!

I watched a video on YouTube that said the micro USB would work but I can't imagine it would due to the size difference. Maybe someone and can chime I'm and let us know.

I ordered mine yesterday and hope to get it soon. Hopefully I'll get one with mine. Still don't understand why they wouldn't include something like that. Seems odd. If I can use a older cable then it's cool with me.

The cord for my captivate worked just fine for rooting, charging, etc...

Cool. Yeah I figured it was pretty standard. The mini usb seems pretty standard on most phones and tablets these days
