I still like it a lot. Works exactly as I expected it to. Using an app for debian as pointed out by the sony tablet thread will open up even more power usage for me.

Basically I run the rooted version of android, so I am not applying any more push updates to the firmware in case of oversights in QA.

Installed:
Juice SSH so I can have local terminal and ssh into other things
AIDE and NDK and the paid key, so i can write software on it. USing juice i can write and port command line apps too.
Microsoft office apps (word, excel, powerpoint, onenote)
ES File explorer so i can do stuff with files locally and on the network

Future work:
Install the debian overlay and the X windowing system then some other linux apps

I received my Gemini yesterday, the Wifi-only version. It is everything I wished for and dreamt about. It is a productivity-monster! The only drawback so far are the lousy speakers, very, very bad and disapointing.

The keyboard is just great (using it now), battery life is excellent and on the software side (Android) I have zero complaints.

I am curious why it isn't discussed here on a daily base. For me, this is the hpc that I was waiting for for a long long time.

Also activated a Freedompop SIM in it for 4G. One bad side effect was they quickly ran through the spiel about a second SIM card in the mail and I wasn't able to refuse before they put the 2nd order in. Seems to catch 4G on AT&T network. Couldn't figure out how to place a phone call yet, but that's probably an artifact of me turning the phone's mobile data off until needed. Anyway, no intent to do voice or text. Just 4G when out without wifi and also low on main line's 4G data for the month.


Nice. This reminds me of me getting a similar SIM in Japan called 0 SIM by nuro where until 500MB, the charge (tariff) is completely free. It cost me 3000 JPY for activation, but yeah, that is usually the case when you sign up to any wireless carrier. The cost keeps going up until 5GB, where it stops at 1600 JPY.

I use it on my Motorola G4 Plus which I used in Taiwan the other day without problems.
Since I used a Taiwan Telecom 5day unlimited SIM there, it saved me a lot of money.

Back to 0SIM, the speed isn't that great, but I am thinking of disabling automatic updates and try out using it on my Sony Tablet P soon.

I wish Japan had lower rates for wireless carriers in general, with no cap on data transfer.

Agree, taiwan has nice short term plans for wireless data. It's been a while since I've been there and taken advantage of it.

The connection speed was better than I expected.

It's amazing they can afford to do that service with that price. Maybe the number of population is the cause (not burdening the 4G / LTE network so much).
