Running vegan beta 3 here, unable to get square to work either. G tab recognizes the reader, but it just keeps asking to swipe the card again.

Just an update to anyone curious, I hooked up headphones while running the square app on my phone, and get no audio - doing the same on the g tablet, I hear audio pops constantly. If we can't get square to work on this, we'll be exchanging it for a galaxy tab (which is really too bad, otherwise we love the g tablet!)

It doesn't work for me either, though I'm not really surprised. The kernels we're using on these tablets aren't exactly optimized for the hardware.

You shouldn't have any issues with the Galaxy tablet. Square works great with my Samsung Fascinate.

Square is a CreditCard reader that plugs into the headphone jack. It's basically the end of checks! for example - if you are selling something on craigs list you can take a credit card as payment, instead of taking a check that could bounce.

If your kids are running a lemon-aid stand, they could take credit cards! no monthly fees, no start up costs - just 2.8% + 15cents for swiped cards

It's really pretty amazing considering a new credit card machine would normally costs thousands of dollars

Well, since time is running out I think we'll switch to the Galaxy Tab. And yeah, I'm running a Vibrant Galaxy S, and my partner has an Epic - but it's just more convenient to have our customers signing on something bigger than our phones

Yeah, if you have any need for it, Square is great. The card reader just uses audio, so it can (technically) work on anything with a 3.5mm jack, it doesn't even give me access to the credit card information after I've swiped the card (protecting the purchaser). It emails you a receipt if you'd like, which contains a google map of where you made the purchase at.

I hope to be back with another Viewsonic G Tablet at some time though, great piece of hardware, and hands down the best early android tab out there, and viewsonic seems really dedicated to it as well. Despite me having Samsung, they're not the best in keeping up with Android OS updates.

I am trying to load the Square up app on TNT lite but it won't show up in the market. Any idea how I need my device set up to make it appear?

I am not aware of any machine costing that much.
My cc reader / swiper at my busines cost a couple of hundred.
