    8GB Tablet Crashes and Locks Up

      About a week after getting my first Tab8 it suddenly went dark and then refused to reboot. At the local store where I bought it they exchanged it for a new one. Yesterday, again after about a week, the same thing happened. This time they did a cold reboot which meant all my apps had to be reinstalled and all related data was lost.

       

      Both times I had been using it for roughly 75 minutes and plugged into the AC. The second time I was playing the Suduko game that came with it. I might have been playing the same game the first time, but don't recall now so I can't say for certain.

       

      Has anyone else had a similar problem with the new model?

          Hopefully with it on some kind of stand or a prop-up case? Since its a fast charge system, is it wise to be holding it in your hands and wiggling it around when its plugged into the AC?

           

          I know that the QuickStart guide says to charge it completely the first time you start using it, and that you can use it while its charging, but safest with a new device is always to let it charge completely.
