The Android Tablet Watch Thread
 
Since the iPad thread is 90% Mac vs. PC (Android) BS, I figured I'd start a separate thread now that some viable Android tablets are starting to be available. (Yeah, yeah...vaporware, etc., etc.)

Discuss.

DaFace 04-09-2011 09:13 PM

I'll start the thread out by throwing in a few of the ones that have been mentioned in the other thread.

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer is the first one that's really gotten me excited.

No guarantees on release date or price, but it's already out overseas, and accidental postings on BestBuy.com and NewEgg.com have put it at $400 (without the optional keyboard dock).

Feel free to post links to it and reviews. I mainly just wanted to get the conversation going.

I'm intentionally ignoring the Xoom, though someone can post links to it if they want to. It's just too overpriced to really be attractive IMO.

DaFace 04-09-2011 09:23 PM

Toshiba's announced theirs, but there's not a huge amount of info out about it yet.

OK, I'm done for now. Hopefully this thread will be a useful place to dump info about new options. If not, we can keep arguing about whether Android tablets are better than iPads in the other thread. :D

I like Motorola's products, but they were stupid for not releasing a wifi only version along with the Verizon version. They could've sold the wifi for $500 and done very well.

HP has a WebOS tab coming soon. It's the one I'm waiting on. Had a thread about it but it died quickly.
