I would like to know if it can be viewed outdoors. I have a Asus TF101 but it is barely viewable/readable out of doors in the sunlight. Thank you.

Well, there's the KoboEaster (version 1.0, 44KB) app hanging around in the app list. Obviously we need to figure out how to run it. Can't be arsed to, though.

Is it a chocolate Easter egg? A little early (or late depending on your point of view) isn't it? Sorry couldn't resist.

I have a question regarding sharing using Wifi direct.

I was able to connect to the tablet from my s3 using wifi direct but it says file sharing is not available when I try to share pictures/videos over.

I had to end up relying on sharing via Office Suite Pro 6.5 Wifi Direct to get the job done. Am I missing a trick here or it is intended to disallow native wifi direct file sharing? Thanks!

Hi FaisalAbid,

Thanks for taking the time to ask and answer our questions.

What are the chances that we will eventually get the option to disable the Discovery bar and reclaim the real estate?

Reclaiming the space is impossible at the moment - but you can go into Settings->Apps->All and disable the DiscoveryService app. The Discover bar & label will remain, but it won't be populated with anything.
