Good hardware, poor software – GADMEI E8-3D 8.1" Capacitive Screen Android 4.0 Dual Core Tablet PC w/ Wi-Fi / Camera / HDMI - Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
The 3D capability is the ~1 discriminator. 3D does work. The tablet has a good, solid feel. Fast startup and operation. USB charging. Good battery life (so far)
Cons:
The unit was delivered with Chinese language running. Installed and additional apps (loads are included as install packages) are in Chinese. Some do not translate. The 3D software is too simplistic. The charger is for a US socket, but mine does not work. Instructions only in Chinese language. No GPS. Lack of support on Gadmei website (and no response to emails so far)
Other:
An excellent product, for which the software could be so much better. A US/EU/UK firmware version would be very welcome. Was I unlucky in getting a Chinese version? I don't know. (no response from Support). Should Google Skymap work? I dont know (it doesnt point in the right direction).
Bottomline:
Outside China, this device is for the 3D enthusiast only. Mainly because the poor firmware/software, and risk of receiving a Chinese Language version.
