NONE of the tablets (tab, xoon, slate, ipad) interest me.

I mean seriously, USB + HDMI, 1080p front (at least 720p) and back camera recording (2MP), at least 720p resolution and NO 3/4g options (WiFi only [tethering]) and an ambient light sensor are the basics for a device of this cost.


the Xoom comes close, but.. it's probably going to come with the obnoxiously crappy motoblur stuff, only 720p recording (which in not THAT big of a deal but..) and a .. barometer? why? just.. why?
I mean even my HTC cell phone brick has an ambient light sensor :\



nothing's perfect.

People still seem to have problem with a thing called "marketing".

No, marketing is fine.

I just have a problem with the people that fall for it blindly, then try and teach me the "facts" they learned from some overly enthusiastic TV commercial when they actually know nothing at all.

If the 1st iPad was selling for the price it is now, I would have got one ... instead I got a netbook and upgraded the ram and to a ssd.

No iPad 2 for me either ... unless I get one for 50$ somewhere

Disappointed. I don't see the purpose of it.

me too, tablets seem like coffee-table consumer devices to me. Not so great for content creation, but great for consumption

Dude that's called garbage in garbage out... that's not that hard especially with those people. I don't like them (although not as much as you do) but still it's not that big of a deal... you tell them what they want to hear with a lil pat on the back and they stay in their lil world not bothering you anymore.

You are paying for the name, although buying usually heck of a nice piece of hardware.

Honestly me too. Anyone know what time it is supposed to be for sale @ retail stores? I am not going to buy online due as chances are there will be a 4-5 week wait like in the USA.
