The 10 Days of Dingoo Competition. Easier than falling off a bike …

The indomitable guys at can’t get enough of the eyeballs you all so generously donate, and although the response to their last sponsored competition was, shall we say, anaemic, you can’t keep a good ecommerce site down! They’re back for more, offering YOU, Dingoo fans, something to while the days away until the silly season truly explodes.

And so today, I announce the 10 Days of Dingoo Competition, where if you can’t lift a finger to enter, then well, I fear for Gen Y.

The grand prize on the 23rd is a frickin’ Dingoo A330, delivered to your door!

All you have to do to win a prize is:

Your Name, Address and the Magic Words: “Welcome from [Insert name of Country]! Gimme da frickin’ Christmas Joy!!”.

Feel free to tell us more about why you love the dingoo … or how you the music died with Michael, or if you’re hot, send naughty pictures … but every entry must contain the magic words to be valid!

I will randomly pick an email entry for each Competition Day, and that lucky entrant will win the prize for that day!

This is the loot on offer:

YDPG18 Android Console – N64 and PSX emulation looking sweet!

Recent days have brought with them a video of an android based console form Yinlips – the YDPG18 (catchy, isn’t it?). Anyway, marketing 101 fail aside, the video speaks for itself:

And it seems to websurf mighty fine too.

7" Capacitive LCD Dual-Core Android 2.2 Tablet PC w/ Camera/Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/HDMI (4GB/Cortex A9)

Price: $199.99

Tablets are the wonder of 2011. All sorts of cool handheld PC’s are hitting the markets at a rapid rate. The screens are better and the interfaces keep getting better, but what about the processors, and when will they compete with laptops?

Yes that's right; it is a functioning Dual Core tablet. It’s running 512 MB of RAM with 4 GB of flash memory built-in. With all of this running Android Froyo 2.2, you will be absolutely amazed at what it can handle and how fast and snappy this device really is. It has a 7” capacitive multi-touch screen with an 800 x 480 resolution. It has a responsive accelerometer built in for screen rotation and ultimate gaming fun. Not to mention Flash 10.3 is supported, as well as 3D gaming.
A tablet just wouldn't be a tablet without built-in Bluetooth 2.1, as well as Wi-Fi; b/g/n. 3G is an option on this tablet but it requires the use of a 3G adapter. Standard equipment also includes a micro SD/TF card reader expandable to 32GB.

ZT-180 Apad review – Android 2.2 10inch tablet

RobertNL has posted a great review of the ZT-180, your for only $170 shipped from DealExtreme!

The ZT-180:
- ZT-180 1 x 10.2 "tablet
- 1 x Micro USB to RJ45 cable
- 1 x 100-240 Volt U.S. -> 9 volt adapter
ZT-180 Specifications:
Processor: 1.0GHz ARM 11
Ram: 256 DDR 2
Memory: 2GB NAND Flash (600 MB free to use)
Operating system: Windows CE 6.X or Android 2.1 (this one is outfitted with 2.1)
Display: LCD 10 (LED backlight according to the box)
Touch: Recessive
Battery: 9V 2400mA Li-ion (4 hours tested!)
Wifi: b / g / n (draft)
[I] [u]
Connections / Inputs: [/u] [/i]
- 1 x USB port
- 1 x mini USB port (OTG)
- 1 x Micro USB port (for network through micro USB to RJ45 cable)
- 1x Power in
- 1x Micro SD card slot
- 1 x 3.5 mm audio out
Hardware buttons / speakers:
- 1 x Back button (black square front screen)
- 1 x 6 last / most used apps (volume up button)
- 1 x menu (volume down button)
- 1 x power off
- 2 x 1 watt speakers
Diagonal: 320 mm
WxHxD: 268x179x15 mm
Screen Size:
Diagonal: 255 mm
WxH: 222x125 mm
650 grams
Build quality: (4 / 5)
So far not much negative to discover, all the hardware works well.
The only negative thing I can think now is the plastic back that you can press a bit, but the plastic seems very resistant. I also have had a bit of noise in one of the speakers, this was the second time I used it, after that it never happend again.
Speed: (4 / 5)
The speed is better than expected, of course not as fast as my Desire but all apps are ready for use in 3/4 sec.
From time to time (I usually do this if I decide not to use an app for that moment), it is wise to use the Task killer. This was pre-installed but it did not work propperly, So i got another task killer from the market. If I kill all apps its says there is between 75 and 100 mb Ram
(Touch) Display (3 / 5)
Because I already knew that the ZT-180 has a recessive screen, I had prepared for the worst. When I put the tablet in my hands the first time it felt really good, although it is not as smooth as my Desire, but still good enough to serve with your fingers (If you are typing a review like this, its good to have a stylus tho). Unfortunately, this screen does not support multi touch but with the 10'' screen you wont need that as mutch as on your smartphone.
The screen also looks good, the viewing angle is not great, but that is a disadvantage of the most cheap tablets.
Connectivity: (3 / 5)
[I] Internet: [/ i] On a wireless G network with wep security ZT-180 works fine the internet speeds are very good. Unfortunately I have no chance to test an N network since I do not have one close.
Bluetooth: Unfortunately I can not find how to use them.
GPS Not possible as far as i know (it could be that there some external dongles + filmware that work)
Cellular: Here are a few types of 3G dongles to get, unfortunately I have none of these dongles home here and they are expensive to buy separately. Moreover, I make my Desire a hot spot if needed.
Additional relevant information:
Android 2.2 (Froyo) has been released for public testing!
ADW launcher for installed (works well at what setting)
Task killer included (Widget did not quite properly)
With last true movie 1030: Working Market!
Supplied with full film 1030.
Plays 720P videos without problems. (tested 2)
I believe a good tablet for a reasonable price, you should not expect Ipad because then you get a rude awakening. Froyo with the prospect (which is said to become faster and more economical tablet) seems a good buy have been. The recessive screen takes some getting used but works well.
So if you are looking for a good working Android 10 tablets at a bargain price then this is definitely a choice on your list should be.

New method for flashing later Apads

[Info] Apad iRobot 9v Charger Variant New Flash Method

« on: August 08, 2010, 11:50:33 PM »

Apparently there's a new method.
Don't have one, but it deserves a new thread. Referred to this:
From Asure:


1. Power switch off
2. insert top USB to PC
3. Power switch on, nothing happens, this is ok
4. press & hold menu
5. press & hold power
6. keep pressing & holding both, the device is detected
7. press the flash button in the rock usb flasher..
It stays in loader mode, as long as you keep pressing the buttons.
