    anyone can suggest a OTG cable for the tablet????? I decided to keep the tablet since I already got rid of my iPad mini and laptop lol.

    I can't believe that my front cameras position is off centered. Also, side button the right requires alot of effort just to register the button to work.

    Any OTG cable will work.

    As far as pathetic build quality, they actually raised the price on these. LOL

    But the Wacom is soooo useful on these diminutive tablets. Trying to use a capacitive pen on these is a bit frustrating.

    note: I'm probably going to keep mine, but I really hope in the future I can get one of these with a quality IPS, and maybe a metal casing. The Asus isn't THAT bad, but the screen, although it's an IPS, is not particularly awe inspiring.

    I plan to keep my tablet until there is a better one that comes along. Decided to go with a Surface pen to accompany the tablet as well. Those thin pens that usually accompany the tablets are not that great or just too small and will cramp the persons hands over a long period of use.

    You might look at the Motion Wacom Stylus.
    The button is flush and it has an eraser.
    It is plastic, but not too cheap feeling.
    The center grip is rubberized for comfort.

    I bought mine from Amazon for $35

    Question as well. Since I already have a copy of Microsoft Office, is the copy of Office that came with the Vivo8 is something that can give away to someone?

    Nope...it is an OEM version of Office and is tied to the machine. If you were to give someone your Key it would be considered software piracy.

    For those of you concerned about storage on the 32GB...

    128GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I memory card by SanDisk

    Found more details elsewhere... apparently it'll retail for nearly the price of the tablet at $199, and will be exclusive to Amazon and Best Buy.

    SanDisk Introduces World's Highest Capacity microSDXC Memory Card at 128GB - WSJ.com

    Edit: Though I should clarify that the price is only a guess based on the quote "The family of SanDisk Ultra microSD memory cards is available worldwide in capacities ranging from 8GB to 128GB with MSRPs of $29.99 to $199.99."

    The Wacom pen for the HP Touchsmart TM2 convertible laptop is a really comfy pen, it has a side button and levels of pressure eraser on the top.
    The tips are replaceable and i have a lovely felt tip in mine, it works beautifully.

    The eraser even works on my Galaxy Note phone, in Sketchbook, blew, my, mind.

    What's with this in SanDisk's press release: "Designed for Android(TM) smartphones and tablets,..."
