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.

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.

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.

It comes with a few choices for app stores, extremely similar to the Android Market or Play Store. It comes preloaded with a radio app, but I'm sure Slacker is available too. Every app I searched for was available for free. It comes with Facebook, Twitter, email, etc preloaded

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.

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....

That's what's bedeviling me now! It's wider than most smartphones--yet, it's small for a tablet--it appears that accessories prove lacking for most such items except "famous" name-brand phones and tablets.

It seems that coming up with a "bumper" wouldn't take much effort for this....

It is really close the droid razr, however it is a bit wider and a bit shorter, I would wait to get the skin and take this tablet in to make sure it fits

Question

Does this tablet have a notepad that you can write and save notes?

My husband needs a tablet for work, just to save notes on accounts and be able to easily access the notes when needed. I bought another tablet that I am returning because it allows you to write notes, but you cannot access them except through a sd card ONLY on a regular computer. That completely defeats the purpose of owning an inexpensive tablet. I have an ipad that has an easy notepad, which I want something similar for him (not all the bells and whistles, just the notepad part)--something that won't matter if it breaks on the job because it is cheap.

No, It does not have a note pad but i imagine there is probably an app you could download for it. If you haven't purchased yet, you could check the amazon app store to see if one is available before you purchase this tablet

The device displayed in the pictures is the PMID4311. If it anything like the PTAB430 (which is also a 4.3" tablet PC, but running Android 2.2) then it does not come pre-installed with a notepad application.

There are various notepad apps on Amazon Market and Google Play he can try out that will give him the functionality he wants or he can just use Kingsoft Office (Document editor). If he uses Google Drive, he can access those notes (that were made on the app on his tablet) on his computer to make edits. Only thing is the notes are stored in cloud storage.
