Received the GPD today from Droidbox (This time there was no seal) although again the GPD seemed untouched. Firmware on 3.3.8. seems to be working quite well so far (Not tried charging it yet.. ) Seems to be an issue with Wi-fi, (although the previous one had similar issues as well).

More than likely a firmware issue perhaps...
