This is the stylus I use: http://www.walmart.c...d-Pink/17237656
 

Works great. Never heard of the Jot Stylus before. Since it is full blown Windows any PDF creator should work. Now as for as writing I personally have not done that yet and with the stylus I use I don't know if it would be comfortable.

 

Thank you, but not a style I'd like. I enjoy my Jot Pro for nice hand writing.

You can get a mouse that runs on Bluetooth if the tablet has that builtin.

I have a 32GB version. I like it. It's definitely not 4-5 pounds lol. The biggest frustration is that you can't charge it when you have other USB devices plugged into  the micro-usb. I've read there are hacks that you can do to USB cords to get around it though. Does anybody know if the micro-usb is USB 3.0 or USB 2.0?

How's your touch screen? I have to touch a certain area multiple times just to do a function (ie: close a tab).

There's a series of cables you can buy from DealExtreme (www.dx.com) for around $10 that allow it without hacking the USB cable

I'm getting mine today. Picked up the 64GB one for $176 USD shipped from Dell. I'm excited. My biggest complaint with both of my Android tablets was that it wasn't really any different than my phone. And since I've always had a flagship smartphone (Galaxy Nexus, LG G2) a phone with a larger screen didn't do much for me. 10" was too big since I have a 13" ultrabook and the 7" weren't much bigger than my 5.2" phone. Plus websites never render 100% properly on the Android devices anyways. 

 

I'm hoping the 8" format is a good compromise between the two. Only issue is lack of Google apps (Gmail)

For those that have this tablet, I bought the on the go USB cable, everything that I hook up to it worked but my portable external HDD does not. It makes the connect sound, the light on the HDD is on, but not showing up. Any ideas?

 

I do see it under Devices and Printers.
