@davidtlong,

 

I remember you had a discussion with another memeber about the GPS issue.

can you confirm if "SU" model has GPS capability or not?

 

Or the device does not have GPS itself and rely on the wwan module (that has GPS capability)?

anyone with/without wwan please confirm this.

 

or I'm misunderstanfing somehting here .... pardon my ignorance

"haven't run through all our usual tests yet.  casual ran of Datacolor Spyder4PRO 4.5.4 shows the gamut of that AUO VibrantView panel's gamut about

70% sRGB

50% NTSC

53% AdobeRGB"

________________________

 

Thank you very much for that analysis.

 

That was unexpected and very disappointing for a 2000+$ device. I was hoping at least >90% sRGB coverage. This is about the same as surface pro (and every other windows 8 convertible).

Well, I guess I have the Kupa X15 to look forward too (although I don't like the fact that it's only 10.1in screen) and possibly the yet to be officially announced Wacom tablet (if it's a windows 8 device with icore cpu)

Hi Dave,

 

I dont think  I was correct. I was seeing the service videos and found that the device itself has a GPS antenna. Please double check if GPS functionality is working on yours.

 

look for GPS Antenna under Tablter FRU Videos:
