This link is under the section 'My Favorites' by Wajk on this link (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1161110).

I hope you installed WIUI from this page itself?

Did anyone try buying the mobile online from UK/USA ? If the amount is 250$ or say 25000INR equivalent, how much will be the custom duty on it?

Guess it is best to post in the post for Tabs - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/gadget...-bb-et-al.html (The Quintessential Tablet PC Thread (Android, Apple, BB et al))

Is the Flow version similar to Swype? I love SwiftKey in its current avatar (have even bought the pro version - my first paid Android app!)

Don't go for any tablets with that 800*480 resolution. Its simply ugly to look at.
Go for any one with an IPS screen and at least 1024*600 resolution. Ainol is a good option if you're OK with chinese models. Especially their aurora 2 and now Crystal. Also they have a dedicated india online store and the products offered are good it seems with better ROM support. They have some good offerings in your budget. Have a look at http://www.ainolindia.com/

Yup, I love Swiftkey - so much so I purchased it for my mobile and the tab version as well. Its word predictions sometimes are too accurate!

Got the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 CDMA - US Sprint CDMA version, imported from the US for 31k, for my Reliance CDMA connection. CDMA rocks as always. Waiting for 4G LTE.

It may be the 1st 'CDMA' Note 2 on TeamBHP...

Note:- Sorry Mods, this can be off topic. I can not found a thread related to this issue.

Need help from android guru....

I have a Micromax Funbook P500 tab with ICS.
I want to connect to my broadband using a LAN to USB connector. I have an Airtel Broadband connection.

I have purchased an "Enter" brand connector. But can not able access the internet from tab by using this connector.

Searched many forums but not get any resolution.

Can anyone help me ?

There should be an option in the conmectivity labelled as USB tethering. Enabling that should help you connect to the net.
Do let us know if it worked.

That's not tethering, is it?

You've first got to check if this functionality, of USB to lan is available on your Tab. From what I see on the specs, it's 3g dongles that you can attach.

Do you have an adapter like this one?

http://www.belkin.com/support/articl...id=4404&scid=0

If you do, you need "usbnet" to be configured on tablet to use internet.

Do you have a terminal app installed?
