First off, I'll apologize for writing a review after owning this tablet for only one night. I hate these kinds of reviews but I felt this needed at least one review from a real customer.

In my few hours with it last night, I downloaded and installed several apps on it from GetJar, including Facebook and Kindle. I also downloaded several apps from my PC onto a thumb drive and installed them onto the tablet from that, which was very cool. I visited several websites that had flash banners and they worked flawlessly. I was also able to play embedded videos on sites including youtube.com and my facebook news stream.

Pros:
- USB port - I plugged an 8GB flash drive in and installed apps from it.
- Micro SD slot - Haven't used it yet but plan to soon
- HDMI port - Haven't used this yet either but it's a great option
- Video looks great
- Very responsive when touching links or rotating display
- Browser is quick and displays flash
- Great price for the specs

Cons:
- Lack of good, working apps. For the A7, you get your apps from GetJar, instead of the Android marketplace. Some apps refused to install for me, like Angry Birds. Others installed but clearly weren't made to work on this size tablet. There isn't a netflix or skype app available (I was hoping to use the webcam with skype).
- Pinch-to-zoom doesn't work particularly well. Seemed to always go way too far in or out. You're better off just double-tapping.
- Scrolling - scrolling by sliding my finger seems to cause a lot of unintended clicks along the way. I think there's just a bit of a learning curve, being used to my ipod touch. It seemed to happen less as the night went on.
- The fixed buttons aren't backlit so at first it's difficult to use in the dark.

Have had this device for 3 days now and I am more than impressed. This thing is blazing fast and very responsive. Sure there are issues but developer is releasing patch to address these by 12-24-12 according to their web site. Hopefully this fix will address the problems with wi-fi waking ,Nvidia drivers (not able to play angry birds.. etc). True the multi-touch and lack of market are a bummer, but what do you want for 300 bucks? So glad I did not spend double this price on a Galaxy tab that will be outdated in 6 months.

pros
-Fast, fast, fast
-Screen res is great for the specs
-Very responsive
-HDMI out is awesome
-USB and SD card media (Bite me Apple)
-rooted out of the box
-300 bucks!
- Jetflicks streaming on 7 inch screen!
-Flash player rocks (Bite me Apple)
-Great reader

Cons
-No Market (hopefully XDA developers will help with this)
-Wi-fi fails to wake from sleep (workaround available and patch coming 12-24-10)
-Nvidia drivers not up to date (patch coming 12-24-10)
-Not true multi-touch ( not an issue for me, I have no plans on making this into a gaming rig)
-Proprietary connector for dock (not a big issue since there is USB/SD card support)
-Menu buttons have no back lighting

Just got the a7 today and think it is a great device. Even with the original firmware - the device is blazing fast, more below, no WiFi issues and the pinch and zoom is adequate. Firmware Update - Version 2.0121 of 12/24 further improves pinch and zoom - which we will apply tomorrow - and update our review once done. XDA have an Android Market ROM so the a7 can gain access to Market.

Build quality is very sturdy - some have commented on its being plasticky - but it's a rubberized, non-slip plastic. Perfectly respectable.

We are certain that XDA will do Honeycomb in due course.

First off - we should say we are an Apple shop - iMacs, MacBook Airs, Minis and iPads - so when we say the a7 blows the iPad away on speed - we are not coming from an anti-Apple perspective. Quite the opposite. Example - loading cnn.com on the a7 fully rendered in about a half a second - the iPad 6 seconds.

1080p playback is super fast and very smooth.

Updated Review - 01/17

Just applied new firmware rev Version 2.0121 and then Version 2.0124.

Fixes all outstanding issues - improved pinch and zoom, better battery.

Awesome tablet - almost twice the Quadrant benchmark score of the Archos A70.

I have had the Elocity for two weeks now. It features cutting edge specs(as of December 2010): The Tegra 250 dual core processor is the reference for the upcoming versions of Android; Capacitive screen; 512MB RAM; Android 2.2; Flash 10.1; USB port; bluetooth, etc. I We have had our share of frustrations in unlocking its' potential, which are common with these products when they are new. The improvements since launch are huge:
Elocity's firmware update fixed many issues including wifi, Angry Birds installation, and multi-touch pinch to zoom (although there is still room for improvement there).
XDA forum has made great strides with it as well including full Android Market access, Google apps including Gmail, Calendar, and Maps. Quadrant benchmarks are now up to 2400, which blows away any non-Tegra devices. I am loving this tablet more each day. The lack of backlit buttons is a little annoying when using in the dark, but I am memorizing their location. If you buy one, you really should visit the XDA thread to take full advantage of its' capabilities. [...]
I also posted a couple of videos of it on YouTube in case you are interested.
Is it the perfect tablet? No, but it has a lot going for it and if you want a tablet right now, it's a great choice that will be able to handle upcoming versions of Android.
As the developer community grows, this tablet is just going to keep getting better,too.
