    Gad damn it, I have just written my blog review on this and everyone has already played with it!!!

    I bought the Zenithink ZT180, with the keyboard case, 157 ebay. Perfect for what I want and needed it for, the resistive touch is not an issue. Battery power is somewhat though.

    ha ha, you've saved me a job.

    The keyboard case is pretty nifty isn't it? There are some hacks that can be applied after gaining root access that help prolong battery life and increase wireless range. I'm yet to tinker with that but I'll let you know how it goes.

    (Unless you've already covered that in your blog, which I am just about to read)

    I havn't Mr Pies, I would be VERY interested to know those hacks. The blog is a review of the thing from a user perspective.

    If you can root the pad I can highly recommend the SetCPU app, I'm using it on my Desire. You can set profiles up so that (for example) I have my Desire running at a little over the factory set speed when I'm using it, but when I switch the screen off it uses a maximum of half the processors speed. My battery life has been much better since I started using it.

    we got one from maplin, it's a "scroll" by storageoptions
    think this is the one: http://www.maplin.co.uk/7inch-androi...06956&t=module

    it's pretty cool for local wireless intranet stuff (helpdesk, fog server) but the version of android it has doesn't support proxies and there's no upgrade.

    Cheers Los0Jos, any other battery or wireless (or CPU/Memory improvement) hacks will be much appreciated. Sometimes the thing gets locked doing stuff and it takes a time to clear.

    Elonex are apparently working on getting Android 2.2 to work on it. This should work on any "branded" Zenithink ZT180. For those of you that didn't get yours from Elonex, it might be worth checking out their website as they have some firmware updates on the site. (I would advise caution of course)

    Another, interesting hack I read about at the weekend, was the ability to get some 3G modems to work on it.

    I think it is Elonex that are selling them at Toys R Us, I originally got one from there, but it dodn't boot up. Took back.

    I think it is Android 2.2 that will support Flash, I am right in thinking...

    yes, but they still don't support proxies so think again before getting them for school

    Are you sure about that? The only reason I say that is that I have recently installed CyanogenMOD on my Desire, and that has Proxy support. What I'm not sure of is whether CyanogenMOD is unique in having proxy, or whether it is available on Android now and HTC for whatever reason don't include it in their ROM's. If that's the case, then devices running Android stock ROMs could potentially have proxy support?

    Like I say, I've only used the Desire so I have no knowledge outside of that.

    I was under the impression that 2.1 didn't support proxies native,(without rooting & fiddling) but 2.2 did? (or that may have been just my device)

    I'm sure it is possible, and certainly CyanogenMOD does. but stock 2.2 doesn't for me, we have a number of (personal) android devices in school and I've yet to get them connected to the internet.
    on a plus note, the citrix receiver works nicely on android.

    Righty-ho!

    ZT-180 FAQ

    Wifi strength and power fix

    The FAQ contains links to pretty much everything you need to know. I've been having fun trying to get two 3G dongles to work tonight, but with no success so far. It can be done though.

    Slatedroid has a great forum too.
