    Question LED notification light on the front of tablet?

    On the upper right just off the actual screen appears to be a opening in the border mask...

    I saw a video review for a case that also showed an opening in the case for a LED at this location, the reviewer mentioned "the flashing indicated new mail had arrived".

    I don't see this flash when I received email, is there a way to turn this on?

    Thanks!

    It does flash just seems very inconsistent

    I completely agree with everything I just said

    Ahhh, OK? Do you mean yes, it does flash when an email comes in, or it only works sometimes?

    Do you know where/if there is a setting for this?

    The only reason I even know it exists is because I was looking at cases and they usually include a cut-out in the case there so it can be seen, and in one of the reviews for the KeviKev case the LED can be seen flashing at 1:42.

    i have no problems with the LED...any notification (email/text/IM) lights up the notification.

    It does flash but seems completely random. I use my xoom constantly and haclve seen the light like twice.

    I completely agree with everything I just said

    Thanks for the replies.

    Well wouldn't you know it, I see mine flashing now, so strange that I never say until I asked about it... it is flashing slowly right now, as bobjenkins mentioned, kinda random!?

    BTW now that the battery has just finished charging the LED is off. I could have sworn that when I charged the unit for the first time the LED at the bottom center flashed white unitl it was fully charged and then it turned green, during this charge cycle that LED never turned on at all?

    I can't even see anything about these indicators in the manual, I wonder just what does trigger the RH LED or the one at the bottom center of the screen?
