First off, I'm new here and I'm thinking about buying a tab 2 10.1. But i have some questions, oh and I'm COMPLETELY new to android and so new I never touched a device before. My first question is, can you put the tab 2 10.1 in portait mode? 2. can you have flash on your tab 2 10.1 and how? 3. I've read a bunch of sites with people having problems with their tab but is it worth it? and my last question is for the remote control feature, can it work with other tvs? for example a sony tv?
Thanks for all your support and sorry if these questions seem "noobyish" but i'm new
The best advice I can offer you is to go into a store that sells them, pick up the device, and play with it for awhile. Try a few apps. Try the browser.
You can put the tablet in portrait mode, but I have noticed that a few apps only run in portrait mode, and others only run in landscape. This is more the app than the device, and most apps that I have seen work in both modes. My tablet runs Android 4.0.4, and it runs flash. I watch Youtube, and some browsers run embedded videos.
As for remote control, I know that it works. The tablet has an IR interface. I started to play with it once, but never got past turning my TV off and on. I didn't have the time to pursue it further, so I need to try it again.
Here is the website that describes the Peel remote control app.
