Bought one two days ago and it's back in the shop for an OBF replacement.
Here are the problems I have sent it back for:
1) When device is off, it hangs completely as soon as you plug the charger in (!)
To get it to live again you have to remove the battery and reinsert it.
2) When it's charging but completely idle in WLAN mode, it hangs completely
Again, to get it functioning you have to flip the battery.
Anyone else having similair issues?
Under other circumstances it works REALLY well, but unfortunately leaving it idle overnight means that the next morning you have to flip the battery to get it working again. May sound simple but the battery cover is a totally unforgiving b*tch to get off. And that's no over-exageration.
I'm using it in a mostly Apple environment (MacBook Pro, iPhone 3G, iPad, Apple TV, PS3) and it allows everyone to connect and have Internet fun - when its working.
Based on a few reports in a forum in Singapore, there are mutterings about whether or not it can be used while the battery is charging, but they were posted in September last year, so not sure whether the firmware/hardware has been upgraded. Either way, the forum members there say that the device was withdrawn because of customer complaints - for a short while. I was able to use it while plugged into the charger - UNTIL it went totally idle - then it would freeze after a short while. So I can't really say what the problem really is at the moment. Not sure whether mine was a dud, or whether it's just a silly device?
If you're interested - here's the Singapore forum's link:
