Hi Folks First of all im happy to report that ive ordered the 64 GB Encore. I will start this Thread to collect all possible solutions to the "charging whilst using USB device" problem. In the Dell Forum where already some ways reported. But someone has written, the way with the shortened pin doesnt work with the encore. For me is the hacked usb hub the ideal way to go. http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/dell/59328-venue-8-usb-power-same-time-15.html Has someone checked the way of peter gunn? Instead i check after new Years Eve, wenn i get the device.
