Elocity A7

I would love to run this on my Elocity A7 (Tegra 2). It gets very little love from the seller, and I live off of images from XDA. Unfortunately, Dexter, the guy making the images available, was smacked down by the XDA forum folks, and he's abandoned the device. Feature-wise, it is great. It can output HD video via the HDMI port. Nonetheless, I've learned my lesson. Don't buy a device just based on specs - look at the community around the device. I wish I had gotten a Nook Color instead. It is less powerful, but the community around it is great. As it turns out, tablets are mostly good for book and simple games. Oh well, live an learn!
