Very weak built-in microphone on Arnova 10

The microphone built-in to the Arnova 10 doesn't have much sound pick-up, at least mine doesn't. When I record a video with the front-facing camera the sound is so low I just can't hear much of it at all. Is there any way to increase that sound level? Does anyone else have a similar problem? Are there any work-arounds? Right now, with a too-weak microphone, it makes it pretty hard to record a video to send in an e-mail because it is just too hard to hear.

I totally agree, the microphone is quite poor.

I believe the microphone is under the tiny hole at a lower left end of the tablet front, it's  probably connected with a very low end microphone component to give such bad quality sound and low volume. 

To my knowledge there isn't any software solution for that [Image Can Not Be Found] and a bluetooth headset won't be an option considering there is no bluetooth support on the Arnova devices.

I am affraid we'll have to deal with it. We should actually highlight that detail in our product reviews, as it can be important for some users.

 

Any suggestion is welcome...

I spoke to the guys in maplins and they suggested a mic/headset might work, but an external mic plugged into the headphone jack or usb mic wouldn't...

 

Anybody tried these???
