    My 2610 just broke again. This is my second unit. I bought the extended warranty so I will either get a refund or a new unit.. so I will be on my 3rd.

    Turn it on, screen shakes like crazy and you can't use the touch screen.

    There, that is my review HAHA

    Sounds like a known problem with them. My workaround was to turn off the auto-dimming feature for the screen, and tape over the light sensor.

    Never had another problem with it after that.

    Not my solution, just got pointed out to me by folks here. :D

    ^ Thanks. But I have had that turned off since I owned it.

    The unit started working yesterday, then quit, then worked, then didn't. Blah
