    Tablet trials

    I don't suppose anyone knows contact details for manufacturers/suppliers so we can get some tablets in on trial?

    I've got a Toshiba one in to play with but i'd be interested in getting stuff in from other companies to play around with too find the best solution. Toshiba are using the Avantis Learnpad software to lock the tablets down and we've got a demo of that at the same time. If anyone has any contact details for suppliers/manufacturers that will send out demo units i'd be grateful for them.

    Thanks

    I have the 101 G9 8GB at home cost me a fair whack more than that but it's a very nice tablet. I presume that is a purchase rather than a trial though?

    I quite like the Toshiba AT100 I have here, i'll be interested to compare with the AT200 when that comes in soon. LOVE the Avantis Learnpad software although am still getting to grips with it but, very simple and keeps the kids OUT of the stuff you don't want them in too!!

    They were a purchase yep. Few schools near us (Birmingham) have been given Apple Ipads for free / trial.
    Might be worth speaking to them if you want Apples.
    Mind you, one of them had their delivery of 30 pinched over the xmas hols - ouch!

    SpuffMonkey,
    My post was a bit off. Misco misquoted me.
    I received them and they'd sent the 8" screen ones with the 8Gb SSD!

    Sent 'em back and am getting the 10" ones today for 193. 8Gb ones but thats enough for school.

    My (Misco's) bad !

    193 ex VAT.

    Misco do the 8" screen version for 165.

    With the latest updates, the machine is brilliant. Loads of improvements, especially the front end visuals and screen responsiveness.

    AND... I FOUND WHERE THE PROXY SETTINGS ARE That only took me 2 days lol.

    I'm well impressed


    This might of use to a few of you..

    Now that is worth sharing! Where are the proxy settings in Ice Cream Sandwich? As Android and proxies is something of a historical subject on here.

    On this machine, go into your wireless config, hold your finger down on your network SSID, Select 'Modify', tick 'Advanced' scroll down and its there at the bottom of the list.

    Literally took me 2 days to find it 'cos the whole of the net says it doesn't support proxies, but hey it does.
