Default [Q] POV Mobii 7 Gen2

Hi all,

I bought a Point of View (POV) Mobii7 Gen2 some days ago and it appears to work really well, especially for its price (129 euros). Everything works quite smooth and games run quite well. However, there is no update to Android 2.2/2.3 and the credential storage appears to be unavailable (no such menu item?!), which means I can not connect to the WiFi of my university network. Does anybody know:

(a) if there is a similar device so I can use the firmware of that one?
(b) how I can enable or install the credential storage in Android so I can connect to PEAP networks? Think this is a major flaw in the firmware!


Thanks!!

I did struggle quite a lot to install the market, but so far no luck. I actually DO have the market installed, but all downloads fail due to missing components. The trick is to install the vending.apk (i'm at work atm so can't post it), but it will not download, I think it is caused by the Google Framework which is missing. What DOES work is the Applanet market. Also copying APK's from a rooted phone does work if you need a certain app which isn't on the AndroidPIT and Applanet market.

One other thing: next week new firmware will be released for this device improving performance and fixing bugs. I hope this firmware does include the google framework, enabling market installation.

Please also post your experience and achievements on installing the market and other improvements/interesting things. Starting to like the device though: watching videos, playing MP3s and e-reading works well. Replacement of the launcher is recommended, I prefer Launcher Pro
