Android tablet/ereader

by pkemp1 / February 25, 2011 9:04 AM PST

Hello, I am new to android. I became interested when trying to find a tablet that could be read in sunlight. In researching, I came across the Notion Ink adam (it was decided to keep it's name all lower case) and have been following it's development for over a year. That is because they have the option of a pixel qi screen. It is a 10" tablet with excellent stats. I would be interested in anyone's experience with the adam or tablets with sunlight readable screens. Also, any experience with 10" vs 7" screens for ebook reading
Thank You

10" vs 7" screens for ebook reading

Pretty simple. With variable font size you can read on either.
10": more stuff on the screen, heavier to hold
7": the opposite
I go for light weight since I like to sit in a chair and read for lengthy periods.

Archos 7

My first Android device is an Archos 7 (7") tablet. Reads quite well in bight light, but is heavy (350 grams). Wi-Fi is handy around the house, so reading mags, books & news works well.
I'd be interested in learning how to get a flash player for it (for internet TV viewing), how to upgrade, etc. Anyone starting a new topic on Archos?

android tablet flash player

Flash player is a free program, hacking your device should not be needed. I believe Archos 7 tablets support up to flash player v9.

I'm not sure what type of internet TV you were looking at watching, but you can get flash player from the adobe website.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
