The instructions are very detailed, and the users are very good about offering help to those not familiar with the aforementioned process.

It seems they now have the ROM for updating the Premium9 OS to 4.0 (ICS), as well as detailed info on rooting the tablet to use GooglePlay. Keep in mind that doing this will most likely void the warranty of your device. There doesn’t seem to be much worry about risk, but it isn’t recommended if you are concerned about not having warranty coverage!

I have ICS, and I’m going to give this a try… because it really sucks not having access to the GooglePlay Store apps!!

I downloaded an app called 1Mobile Market and I was then able to download most apps that I wanted. The rest were downloaded from google and such. The unit is a little sluggish and can get frustrating. It functions fine for a cheap tablet. I got this for work so I wouldn’t have to worry about scuffing up my expensive tablet at work. Battery life is okay but as mentioned before, sometimes you can plug it in and it doesn’t charge. Also it was quite challenging to find a case for it. I think it is an okay unit. I’ve managed to force it to do everything I wanted it to do. And yes you will need work arounds to get it to do everything you might want it to do.

I have to take it to McDonalds to play w it as I have no wifi in my home. So far my biggest complaint is I can not update the weather for Houston, and when I accessed my chorus website it would not accept my password so am resetting my password from my notebook which is part of Sprint w it’s own phone number. Iwas hoping I would like it as I am considering wi-fi for my home. I already have Kindle, I want to use this to download sheet music from my chorus website to file and use for practice.

Silly me, I should have read the reviews before ordering it. Now I find I cannot access e-books from my local library, I can download books but cannot open the file. the blurb says this device comes preloaded with 25 free books, also a joke, anyone can download these books that are now part of the publice domain, I should add
that is if you wantt to read the Count of Monte Cristo, Jane Austin, Emily Bronte..I could go on but you get the picture. Futher more the device showed that the battery was low, I plugged it in overnight and got the yellow light to say it was fully charged, when I opened up the tablet I got a message to say “connect to your power source your battery is only 3% charged. Don’t waste your money, make sure any device you buy is going to do what you want it to do. Anyone want to buy a slightly used nextbook9 Android Tablet, its going cheap.

I have the 7 inch already and it’s fine.

You dont have access to android market so you cant download ANY Apps that are not already on here when you get it. such as Facebook, Skype, ect. This is not worth the cost of the box it comes in! Dont Waiste your time or money!
