Default Apple Ipad Killer The U1 Hybrid iPad from Lenovo

The U1 Hybrid Ipad from Lenovo looks way more promising, and it supports Windows 7. I will get an Ipad, but from Lenovo and skip over Apples offering. This thing looks badass! > YouTube - Amazing U1 Hybrid iPad from Lenovo Trumps Apple!!! - Tekzilla

Hopefully all the lacking features that the Apple Ipad doesn't have the Lenovo U1 Hybrid will have, and more.
I will preorder one of these for sure.

That thing's going to cost a fortune. And once again: glossy screen = fail.

There's an MSI Android tablet coming out for about $500 that should be a good competitor for the iPad. And Dell is way off course with one for double that price, lol.

MSI's 10-inch Tegra/Android tablet coming this year for $500

Yup...

IMO, buying anything mobile (other than a laptop) nowadays is plain stupid unless it's a pure neccesity for work or something. That I could understand. But otherwise, the mobile market is exploding so much that it isn't even worth it. I mean, in 5 years I bet you those mobile units will have quad cores, dedicated graphics and 1080p (or above) streaming, etc. Performance in mobile devices will only get better, and at a extremely frequent pace, I suspect.
