Hmm android on the less powerful tablet eh... Kind of disappointing but whatever. What's that one got for specs again, an atom? $999 kinda pricey for the higher end one but it will blow the ipad out of the water in terms of performance I'm sure. Not sure if you guys are cool with links to other news sites in your news posts (Xzibit: So you can read the news, about the news, while postin' yo news) but here is engadget taking one for a bit of a demo: ASUS Eee Pad EP101TC and EP121 preview -- Engadget

That's an older video so that's the 10 inch version running W7CE, which is apparently going to be running Android now...

That is disappointing that they dropped Windows 7 for Android on the cheaper tablet, I have been holding off buying an iPad for a Win7 tablet instead. I guess will have to wait and see final pricing on the Core 2 version and competitor tablets from MSI and so on.

Smile Press Release

Perhaps the computer companies should consider a way to make your desktop portable. More powerful than the iFad. Imho these are simply toys to waste money on. Laptops are getting better and lighter with more capabilites than any tablet pc, but I digress. How good is the android os? Watch out Microsoft!!!
