  • PMID701c Accessories?

    Which accessories (cases, etc) have you found to be compatible with this tablet? So far, the only thing I've picked up is this: http://www.target.com/p/Belkin-Kindle-Verve-Tab-Folio-Black-F8N675TTC0/-/A-13996809?ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001&AFID=Froogle_df&LNM= |13996809&CPNG=stationery&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=1 3996809
    Belkin Verve Tab Folio meant for the Kindle Fire, unfortunately only comes in Purple or Black. I find the tablet sits nicely in this quality leather case, and though it shows 29.99$ on my link, it rang up at my local Target store for 19.99$. Has anyone tried Kindle Fire (or other brand) screen protectors etc yet?

    Case and OTG cable.

    The OTG/host mode cable is standard so if you have one from another device or a cheap source like mcbub.com that should work.

    I have a $5.95 ebay clone of the Poetic brand kindle fire book cover style case. It is a snug but decent fit.

    Going to cut a little more off the top of the right spine to fully expose the power button and cut out the middle bit of the top spine for access to the USB and video port. Otherwise pretty nice and since I have my kindle fire in another one just like it only black (this one is brown) they look like siblings.

    Pretty sure it is this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/For-Kindle-F...item2ebaf8536e

    Was going to try a ipod video cable and see if it works, I have one I am willing to cut up to figure out the pinout if it does not. But I am knee deep in working on the ROM atm.

      my handiwork on the kindle fire case conversion

      Here a couple pics of the cheap ebay kindle fire case edited slightly to work with the pmid701c.

      I used the foam insert that came with the case as a form to make cutting easier. I made a flap that I folded under put some super glue on and held with my flat nose pliers till it stuck, then I used the pliers to mold the edge nice and flat and tight. I used a toothpick to put a little super glue along the cut edges to prevent frying. Worked out pretty nice. The last picture is the Kindle fire and the Polardroid together.

ID:	256Went in local Five Below (store with lots of closeouts, cheap chinese stuff all below $5) and picked up two "eReader Cover"s "Fits the Kindle Fire and Kindle Keyboard and most e-readers up to 7.5" "

        I have attached pics. the Polardroid fits nicely and securely. The straps lay directly over the power and back buttons on the side but do not inhibit the action of the buttons. The strap location actually helps locate the buttons in low light situations. biggest drawback is to use the headphone jackyou have to use two hands to get the jack into the hole and slide the strap out of the way at the same time. Lots of faux materials but feels good to hold and the magnetic closure grabs pretty good.

        I also attached pics of the wife's Fire in a different color(silver &pink) cover of the same model.

        $5 each

          usb charger

          Despite what the manual states, the Polardroid will charge via usb. With that in mind I went digging through my old phone chargers but could not find one, but setting in my car yesterday with the battery draining quickly while playing Ceramic Destroyer (try it!), I looked at my Garmin hanging from the window and low and behold the charger for it worked. I wont be buying a car charger. (I wont have automated navigation while I am charging either. LOL)

            Targus

            Targus makes a nice cover for that fits the Polaroid 701C that even has a stand for movie watching or radio listening. Looks kinda like this one for the Samsung Galaxy but nylon not leather http://www.targus.com/us/productdeta...%26%20e-Reader. I couldn't find the one I got on Targus' site. It's at Best Buy for $19.99, a lot cheaper than the others for $35 or $40 I saw there. Wal-Mart might even have it cheaper but the Wal-Marts in our area have been lacking on all other tablets except the Ipad. Check it out.

            OOPS! Wow was I wrong it's not a Targus case its a Rocketfish! It is at BestBuy, here's the link http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Rocketfi...&skuId=3868237 but it's $24.99 online but it's $19.99 in store. Sorry for the confusion.

              I got a keyboard case from amazon that came with a USB host cable, the case is pretty good leather and the host cable works with a USB hub, Flashdrive and keyboard. Dont have a mouse to test. The keyboard is ok although the num lock doesn't appear to work

              here is the link:

                First ever custom wood and leather case for pmid701c

                After searching online for cases, I found all kinds of diy wood cases for Ipad and such, so, being a wood shop teacher, I decided to try to make one for the Polaroid and came up with this:





                What yall think?

                  When I saw the first pic I thought you had hidden your tab in a bible

                  That certainly is sturdy, wow!

                    Thanks,
                    It does look like a book or a bible, I used a strip of leather for the hinge, the "latch" is just a leather strap that sticks into a tab on the front.

                            Thanks! I just purchased my tablet today and was wondering if that would work. I just went on Amazon and got it. Thank goodness for Amazon Prime, I needed it to be here before I go to Florida to teach.

                            Are you running ICS on yours?

                              No I have the 2.3.6, I heard there will be an update later in the week to ICS, although if they dont put the original firmware up in case I dont like ICS I may not do it
