I can connect at home on my verizon MiFi device but not at my office. We have really old routers and modems at work and I believe that is the problem. Try it out at McDonald's and if it doesn't work there, the wifi might be messed up. I have had 2 and they both connected everywhere but at work.

According to Polaroid's website, the PMID4311 (which is the device that is displayed on this page - not the PTAB430) has a "front facing camera that supports video chat."

As for whether or not it supports video chat for Skype adequately is another question.

Netflix works. We have loaded and tested it. We do not have a hulu plus account but were looking into today. We visited google play store and google play store told us that hulu plus IS compatible with the tablet. Seeing we don't have a hulu plus account I can't test it and have to assume that what google play is telling us is correct. We have not tried to download movies from the PC onto the tablet.

Remember, it's not a phone. To text with this, it must connected wirelessly to a WiFii source nearby. Most coffeeshops offer WiFi these days. Given you have WiFi in your home, that's even better....

The device displayed in the pictures is the PMID4311, which has 4GBs of internal storage (via Polaroid's website#.

The PTAB430 #which is also a 4.3" tablet PC, but running Android 2.2) also has 4GBs of internal storage (via various websites).

Not directly. Southern Telecom tries to dodge the issue--they indicate that GooglePlay is intended mostly for phones. Unfortunately, GooglePlay is the sole source for many apps--say, those from banks, etc. (I've read that Android Market no longer exists--that was intended for Android operating systems before Icecream 4.0. )

It is possible to "dodge" Southern Telecom's restrictions, though: You need to "root" this device. Rooting changes the firmware/operating system in a manner such that you then have complete control of the operating system/firmware/software.

Youtube tutorials, etc., and other anecdotes online indicate how to proceed with the PMID4311. Rooting offers many hazards, and it risks making your device unusable--a "brick."

It may prove best to have a knowledgeable teen, PC hobbyist, or tech pro do this for you. Certainly, you'll also void your warranty. Having total control of the device software/firmware control functions offers later hazards, too--given carelessness at that low level.

I may: My device is rooted. I'm not certain otherwise--I believe so, though. I may use a USB keyboard, too--probably a Bluetooth keyboard, as well. (An adapter from USB to microUSB and a Bluetooth stub (given a Bluetooth keyboard) may prove necessary.
