Faced a bit of an issue with the Wifi "connect" button being disabled, earlier on, but then rectified it later.

^^^Could you (and others) comment on your experience of accessing forums like tbhp on your tablet? And how convenient is it to type long posts?

My joy after getting my first Android-ish Gadget-ish plaything thing was short lived, as I am already facing issues.

The device simply refuses to charge. If I keep it on USB/AC Charging, it shows the charging animation and all , but the charge % never goes up. I tried a hard reset , but that did not help.

Google'd around a bit, and it seems like an issue with Ice Cream Sandwich, but did not stumble upon a solution.

Did a hard reset, that did not help things either.

The Battery Usage Not Available message and the time of 1hr 32 min 44s has remained constant since the first start up.

Any pointers/suggestions ?

Yep, tried hard rest from the Pin given at the bottom of the device. And factory reset from the "settings" tab.

I called MM and was told to visit their service center.

I suggest people should hold of purchasing this device , until the issues reported by many people are sorted out.

Guys need help here.
What kind of external Harddrive works with the iPad2?

I've seen the hyperdrive,but the price is ridiculous !
Ill keep that as the last option.
What about the goflex and other ones.
Or even if there is some other manner of attaching other media to the pad.

The iPad is not jailbroken, and neither will it be.

I just ordered goflex satellite for the exact same reason. There seems to be no other way to get extra storage reliable enough. Bought camera connection kit earlier but it's only good to transfer photos etc not big movie files. This goflex drive has inbuilt dlna server a battery and wifi built in.

No man, my issues are not resolved. The service center was unable to fix it, sent it back to snapdeal and now the fight continues with them for a refund/replacement.
Will never buy anything from snapdeal again, too much of a hassle.

The specifications are very interesting! I wonder if there is a catch.
It says $40 with worldwide shipping.

Makes you want to order, do they have it in stock? They don't mention about it anywhere.

There was a huge ad/article in SAKAAL today.it ships to india apparently . 33$ +7$ shipping.thats VERY cheap

Plus payment is through paypal.that means we can request a refund if the product isnt shipped/up to standards.paypal is very strict about stuff like this
