That's the thing: "in the works" is a gamble that may never materialize. I have LG Optimus T that I bought for one of my prepaid accounts. The stock rom is horrible, and custom ROM development was abandoned before the stable ROM was out. The best custom ROM I could find has occasional problems unlocking the screen and WIFI that stops working. So if I see such glaring stuff as non working audio or video playback I'm not even going to bother buying - who knows if that stuff will ever get fixed, and even if it does, by the time it gets fixed there is a good chance you'll be able to pick some other tablet at or near the same price.
