    Yeah. Seems to out perform the Ipad, 'cept for the battery life. Lots more speed and memory though...And USB ports.

    We need something like it for our helicopters. Really would like to stay away from a computer based on the iPhone OS. Too many limitations.

    Hey, Steve Jobs decided you don't need USB ports... or Flash... or any of that money. :D


    The concept of the device looks good and sees to test well, but I'd like to see some more time put on it. The hospital I work at is getting ready to purchase about 20 tablets like this for nurses and docs - so I'll keep you guys up on what we go with and how they work.

    Yuck. Tablets.

    But if they could get away from that whole "spin the monitor around" thing, and have a better OS, they might have a good system. I can't see windows-based being good for a keyboard-less system. Plus, isn't that the same Intel processor they use on the netbooks?

    What's battery life on that? I didn't see it listed.

    I've been keeping an eye on the Tablet developments. I'm waiting on a tested 10" Android with USBs, BT, HDMI, quality processor, and front facing camera. But it's always exciting to see other developments. Competition breeds innovation.

    Absolutely. I caught that tablet on my Techbuzz Widget on my phone. Sounds VERY intriguing. Especially for the price. Some people nock the resolution, but seriously, it's practically 720p resolution and it's a 10" screen. How many pixels do you ACTUALLY need. Besides, more pixels equals more power drain. And if I want more pixels, I'll just output it to one of my 3 HDTVs via the HDMI out.

    Biggest question mark is the Market. But I think that'll be resolved quickly. Many are suggesting that Gingerbread will address much of the Tablet/Market dilemma. I just hope I can BT a keyboard. That would be sweet.
