I was gonna get one but my Iconia A100 is still so capable and it allows external storage too. Still a nice table for the $$$ though. Besides that, I am broke anyways, lol.

I'll wait for some more reviews/end users opinion on this tablet to pull the trigger. I'd like to try out one first too..

I'm not sut 7inch would cut it for me. I found the 10'' screen of the iPad just big enough to read books/pdfs on. I mostly need something that read PDFs and they scale quite badly on those screen so you need to keep scrolling all the time. The lack of external/internal storage might be a deal breaker too.. can't really bring it on a trip with movies/tv shows on it.

I'd also like to see some accessories for sale for it as well. Mainly a screen protector and a car mount/dock.

I have an Asus TF101 and I love it. This thing looks awesome. I would love an affordable 7" tablet of the same quality of the tf101. This seems to be it in alot of ways. Its cheap enough that the wife won't bludgeon me to death if I were to be one too.

The rumoured release date, at least in the UK is the 19th of July. Who knows if that means we'll see it released in North America (or just Canada on the 17th, the 19th or later).
