Elocity Support back on track!!
I asked about a few things and Elocity answered all of my questions.
I have to say they are trying for sure and I think if we collectively give them a chance they will give you good service.
Here is a response to my question about 3.0 or gingerbread,
The A7 can be upgraded to Android 2.3 though it will not be upgraded to Android 3.0. We will be posting the upgrade notice on the website and also keep all our customers who've registered on the website notified by email.
So there you have it. Official word is no 3.0 but they will upgrade us to gingerbread. I would have loved 3.0 and I hope the people on this forum will help make that happen but it is nice to know that we will at least get another upgrade to the latest available with our hardware specs. They gave me no indication of when this will happen but at least it is in the works.
Personally I am very happy with their response. Compared to other manufacturers at least they are giving us some updates and to me that is a very good sign.
I am now very happy with my purchase. When I bought the a7 I thought 3.0 would run but there was no guarantee of it when I bought the device so it was my risk but even so the fact we will continue to get updates is very promising. When 3.0 comes out maybe in time they may change their stance or maybe google will fork 3.0 for tabs and phones and we will keep getting the phone updates. I am not sure but I just wanted to have at least one OS upgrade as there are a lot of perks in 2.3 over 2.2 so if I am stuck with that version officially at least it is a good version to have and will be able to utilize this tabs hardware properly. Considering I paid $300 for this device I am very happy with it. It does a lot for the money. Now with updates I feel very happy with the Streams initial efforts. We will see if they keep it up. Thanks to Dexter's help this device is great. They made a little blunder in the beginning but they are trying so I am going to give them my support as a customer and not return the a7.
