Cheaper Tablets...

No Google Play access is a gigantic deal breaker for any Android device imho.

 

I agree.. I wonder if they are concerned that once it gets loaded down with app's the performance will be so degraded nobody will like it anymore.. even at that price.

 

I'm hoping that the rumored specs and price on the Nexus tab are true... would be a steal.

I thought it had something to do with hassling with Google. AFAIK, you can load both Google Play and/or Amazon Market after you purchase the phone.

 

I think it has to do with the framework used from Android. If you dont use the complete framework base then you can't have Google Play access nor the core Google Apps like Gmail, maps, and such. Like the Kindle Fire for example...

So is it a simple fix as in just installing the google play apk or is it more than that?

Depends on the OS and if everything is there to support it.

 

For example here is a write up on how some did it on the kindle fire

But from looking at the video of the tablet it looks like its running straight ICS not some big stripped version of Android like others are running, so it could be as easy as just installing it...

Well if this can be done with these tablets, this may actually be a decent deal. I don't have any kids but if I did, I would be getting them something like this instead of dropping $500 on an ipad or whatever high end android tablet.

I can't see myself buying a Coby. The Nexus tablet, I might. It is nice that they are coming with ICS from the factory, but I bet with something like this, you would never see a MFG update or ROM for a future version of Android.

Well you never know, this thing could be very root friendly and could become the htc hd 2 of the tablet world where you can run just about anything on it.

    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
    • From a few days back: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/deutsche-telekom-aims-50-t-mobile-ownership-2024 DT Chief Executive Timotheus Hoettgas said buying the majority stake in T-Mobile US was the group's most important strategic project at present, according to Reuters. He said that stake should top 50% much sooner than its previous projection of 2024. Earlier this year, DT paid $2.4 billion to SoftBank Group to increase its stake in T-Mobile US to 48.4%.
    • 5.9GHz finally approved by a court: https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/court-upholds-fccs-decision-59-ghz.  This should be added to 5GHz wi-fi.  considering wi-fi 7 will be included in the qualcomm x70 and related SOCs, doubtful they will be able to add this now, unless designed to be added later.  5.9GHz will given us a third 160MHz unique carrier iirc, a major improvement.
    • waiting for about 400 with demand > supply, or 95% to look again in some detail.  Until then : https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
