    Thread If you change your firmware region, what happens to the keyboard region?

    Hi all Has anybody changed their tablet's firmware to that of a different region which has a different keyboard layout? If so, did the keyboard layout continue to match the markings on the keys? Alternatively, can anybody confirm if all keyboard layouts are listed somewhere in the settings...

    Thread Taiwanese Z4 Tablet SGP771 in the USA: Any likely problems?

    Hi all I'm about reaching the point that I'm ready to splash out on a Z4 Tablet of my very own. I want the dock, and although I'd likely only be using Wi-Fi / Bluetooth initially, I want the LTE version as well. I'm wondering what stumbling blocks I'm likely to hit, and would appreciate advice...

    Thread [Q] White tablet, black keyboard?

    Hi all I'm considering picking up the white version of the tablet, but note that the keyboard is only sold in black. I prefer the white tablet because my Xperia Z2 phone is also white, and because when using it outdoors, a white tablet is less likely to overheat because it reflects most of the...

    Thread Z4 Tablet battery life demolishes the competition!

    Now THIS is promising: Expert Reviews have published their Z4 Tablet review, and according to them, battery life actually sigificantly exceeded Sony's claims. With screen brightness set to their standard of 170cd/m2, they recorded a screen-on time of 19 hours, 48 minutes without even using...

    Thread Share your power consumption with ambient mode ENABLED?

    After far too long of shockingly-bad battery life from the stock Moto 360 with no apps at all installed and power consumption of as much as 8% per hour -- and multiple failures to even get to the end of the day without having to recharge, let alone get multiple days -- I want some feedback from...

    Thread Ambient Mode -- what's the point, and why use it?

    So I've finally had the chance to play with one of these watches extensively, and I am baffled by ambient mode. It's not that it still turns off sometimes; that makes perfect sense. What's wrong with it is that it doesn't actually update even when the screen is on. Test it yourself. Use the...

    Thread Tip: Photosphere without the black holes

    Just realized this myself, thought it might help others. I've been enjoying the Photosphere panorama tool on my new Nexus 10, but I wasn't a fan of the fact that there's a big black hole at the top and bottom of the panorama. And then I realized (via this thread) that there needn't be! If...

    Thread [Q] Nexus 10 Photosphere and compass / tilt accelerometer drift issues

    Hi all Just got my Nexus 10 yesterday, and am wondering if I have faulty hardware, or Photosphere is just unusable on a stock tablet. I'm not talking about stitching issues with nearby objects; I know about parallax. What I'm experiencing seems to be an issue with the accelerometer / tilt...

    Thread Music for alarm sound on stock Clock broken?

    Weird problem here; when I first got my HTC One X the alarms in the stock Clock app worked perfectly. They still work now, but I can no longer create new alarms with the Alarm Sound option set to Music, nor can I change existing alarms to use new music. I first experienced the problem at least...

    Thread Asus USA, Netherlands suggest TF101 Jelly Bean undecided; Asus Germany disagrees

    Update: different branches of Asus are directly contradicting each other about whether we'll get an update. See http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=28840181 for the first example. See http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=29269146 for yet another contradiction. Title says it...

    Thread Signal monitor that actually works with the One X

    Hi all Wondering if anybody can recommend any signal monitor apps that work properly with the One X. Almost every single one I've tried fails to report loss of signal, and those with access to signal strength data or graphs show a continuous -99dBm. I had one that was working (Traffic Monitor...

    Thread Disabling or unlinking MyLibrary -- how to do it?

    So, I tried my first ePub book from my library today. Figured out downloading it on the tablet, but made the mistake of opening it with MyLibrary. I hadn't used this stock app at all until now, as all my reading has been things I've purchased or downloaded for free in Google Books. It is, in a...

    Thread Multitouch crosstalk on TF touchpad is TERRIBLE

    So I've had the Transformer update for about 20 hours now, which has given me time to play with it. The new circular cursor for the touchpad isn't a good design, but I can now see what they were trying to do, as they also use it to indicate touch and multitouch by filling the center of the...

    Thread Honeycomb 3.2 global launch discussion

    Since the mods have seen fit to lock all three threads relating to Honeycomb 3.2's launch tomorrow, I'm starting somewhere else that we can discuss this important news. Perhaps the mods might consider merging threads rather than locking them, in future (especially when there was only a 4 minute...

    Just noticed that NewspaperDirect have shipped their first version of PressReader that's specifically intended for tablets: http://www.prweb.com/releases/pressreader/android/prweb8616121.htm I've actually started using PressReader myself, and although it's a bit more expensive than subscribing...

    Thread [INFO] Screwed over by the Eee Pad launch - Sign In Thread

    So, I've been lied to by Asus' chosen retailers, and I've seen people who placed orders after me receive tracking numbers, while my own shipments are indefinitely backordered. It seems I'm not alone in that. I have no choice but to cancel my orders in a week from now, because I'll be out of the...
