    Well, IMO, I think it might work. I'm now waiting AVN8 to be available in Taiwan.
    I'm using Miix2 8" right now and it works fine to charge and OTG simultaneously just using a Y-cable(purchased from China).

    This cable is originally made for ASUS memopad. I think AVN8 will be able to charge and OTG at the same time by using the simplest Y-OTG-Cable.
    Or you can try using a Lenovo's charger which provides a slightly higher Voltage (5.2V 2A).
    I noticed that DV8P won't work with the Y-cable, which might be the reason for the +port showing up on Kickstarter.

    Unfortunately, it has already been confirmed a simple y-cable will not work. It definitely requires some sort of hack to get data and charging at the same time, and it seems to be a different mechanism than on the Dell. The Miix 8 is the odd one out. Its the only one of the bunch that allows simultaneous charging/data.

    Are you sure you're a "real" lawyer? I've never met one that didn't think he knew everything! :D

    For me the tracking works fine all around the screen, but towards the top right and middle edge (when viewed in portrait mode), have issues with input.

    These areas when I scribe in one note or any other inking program, makes everything look fuzzy and grainy. It looks like a first grader wrote it, but moving about 1 inch away from the edge my hand writing looks great just like the surface pro. Kinda annoying...

    For those in my area, Pentagon City has 3 64gbs left in stock. Just picked one up.

    I think Meso aready covered this, but a Y Cable just won't cut it.


    I am and I do - I just don't flaunt it....:cool:

    Since you are there (Tiawan), you could go give Jonney a visit and ask for him to patch it for us =)
