Back again....

In my country (Portugal), we can test most of the products for 15 days, if there's a plausible reason (like this SD Card issue) we can ask our money back,or a new product.

Two years it's the full warranty, after those 15 days, they will have 30 days to fix the item, after that by the law they should give us our money or a new item. BUT nobody likes to pass those 15 days and wait 30, so the first days are really important.

I got a new Arnova 7 G2 today (after using the other one for 14 days). First thing i did was letting the tablet charging until i got the yellow light. It turn it on because it wasnt blocked, so i did a quick configuration and i turn it off......

After i got the yellow/orange/whatever light i turn it on...guess what? The damn thing got stuck in the ARNOVA screen..oh well...nice startup!

After a while trying in vain to turn it off i choose the reset button...

Then, i connect it to my pc, i've download and installed the last firmware.

Now i've installed/uninstalled a few things and everything looks normal.


The new things i've noticed it's the message "SD Card inserted - Select to copy files to/from your SD Card" every time i restart.

This comes with the new firmware, before i didn't have this message (but correct me if i'm wrong).

Still shows the icons from applications in my SD Card with the text "loading" at start, but after a while those icons appear with the name and icon of the application like it should be, not like the other tablet, it stays there with the "loading" labels all the time.

The damn Gmail has the same sound as the sound of "SD card unexpectedly removed" by default, and i just got a mail!!!!!! phew! I really hate that sound now!!


I'll be back with good or bad news...

The "SD card unexpectedly removed" problem was solved...
Now there's a new one. Every time i start the tablet, the time isn't right.
If i turn off my tablet at 5pm and turn it on at 6pm the tablet will show 5pm.
In a normal computer it will be the bios battery problem, in tablets i don't know if is that simple.
Now i'm just waiting for an answer from
I'm starting to be sick of this. Or i'm a very unlucky guy or this tablets are a bunch of crap.



No answer from yet after this time...

Doesn't matter anymore, because at least i'm done with it...

The tablet went back to the store, i got my money back, i add a lil more and i bought a (almost new) samsung galaxy GT-P1000 7" 16GB.

I've a friend who uses one of those for ages and he never had a single problem.

Sadly i can only say that my experience with Arnova was a nightmare.


So long.
