	i dont have a clue what a chording keybd is; will google
	after a long nap1  also, i have lost track of who posted the
	'fentek' page, but that is where i got my present mine.

	i v much like this vivaldi 7" tablet, just as-is.  i wonder
	if a future 7inch model could have more memory Along with a
	"slide-in" kybd.  slide out and work: edit, use ffox,
	konsole or xterms, then slide back in place. this tablet
	could replace the ipad, nook, asus.
