PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Geeks.com sent us in an Android 2.2 tablet, the MID M80003W. They recently populated their store with a number of cheap tablets, so we thought it was a good idea to see what one could expect from these products that seem to have flooded the market recently.

At Apple store the staff members would help activating for the first time, Afterwards, buyers do not really need to use iTunes at all unless they have something of need. So they do not really need to learn how to use normal computers either.


- updates.

- Apple Stores are really only prevalent in the US. Remember: most of the world does not live in the US. Here, we buy our Apple stuff in normal stores. They won't do this for you.

- getting files on there requires iTunes. Once again: the iTMS is really only useful in the US, since outside of there, it's a barren wasteland with no TV shows, no movies, no nothing. In other words, other sources must be used, ergo, desktop iTunes.

The RDF is strong in you.

- I do not live in US. However, the called Apple authorized resellers where only Apple gears are sold would also do the same for buyers. I just said Apple store but no different for those shops. You do not have one at all over there? shame.

- Nothing on iTunes in your country you mean? Here in NZ people can access most of the movies, songs and TV shows if not all. You think all those countries other than your country is all US? I only sometimes run iTunes on my Mac while I am on it to download some things but I do mostly download directly from my iPod touch without a hassle. So you are not the only common denominator. Therefore your point is moot.

Get out of your blinded mind.

I have been renting movies from the US store ever since I bought my first Apple TV (from the Netherlands). I know it's a bit of a loophole, but also very trivial to use. I also bought iPad apps from the App Store before the iPad was introduced in The Netherlands.

That said, we are also a bit unlucky (small market, probably difficult to arrange licensing deals). E.g. Germany has had iTunes Movie rentals for some time now...
