Quick Review for Kobo Arc 10HD Tablet

I tried out the Kobo Arc 10HD for a few days, because it went on sale for $199.99, down by $100 from the regular price.

As I write this, the price is down $20 further, to $179.99 at BestBuy.

Here is a quick review of the pros and cons. Note that I am not evaluating as an eReader, but rather as a regular tablet.

    Fixing bricked Acer A500/A501 tablets with data errors, only booting in APX mode

    When using nvflash or APX Tool to repartition an Acer A500/A501, some people get data errors, and assume their device is bricked, and is good only for parts.

    For example, the command:

    nvflash --bct flash.bct --setbct --odmdata 0x100c0105 --configfile flash.cfg --create --bl bootloader.bin --sbk 0x... 0x... 0x... 0x... --go

    Will output:

    failed executing command 11 NvError 0x120002
    command failure: create failed (bad data)
    bootloader status: failed to create the partition (code: 10) message: nverror:0x3 (0x3) flags: 0

    Using an Android tablet with PDF and Aldiko for presentations to VGA or HDMI projectors

    I use a 15.6" laptop for daily work, but it is kind of heavy lugging it to conferences and talks. This is aggravated by the roller case for it which has some weight in it. Add a power supply, and other sundry items, and it becomes inconvenient when I am not traveling.

    So, when I saw someone givining a presentation off of an Apple iPad, I was jealous and thought: why can't I do the same from my Android tablet? Turns out that the iPad has a display port, and Apple sells a display port to VGA adapter.
