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.

Still getting closer to the correct price/performance point. The first manufacturer who can release a quality product at $100 below these prices will see pretty significant sales. Everything I have read says that that is the sweet spot.

I assume you mean $299 is the sweet spot.

sort of.. $200-$350 is the sweet spot .. meaning your low end model should be around $200 and high end around $350... I don't expect anyone to release anything decent in that range in 2011.

Tablets need to come down. They're just too expensive for what they are.

I'm reposting my question from earlier in the thread, but does anyone have any experience with the Toshiba Thrive? My big question is can I hook my DSLR camera to it through HDMI and use the Thrive as a monitor for filming.

Any other thoughts about it?

Chainfire at xda has been working on an app for Canon EOS DSLR. (Don't know what your camera is. Waiting on something for my Nikon.) Awesome app.

Don't know anything about the Toshiba Thrive.

Just did this over the weekend on my Xoom, guessing it will work on most Tegra units though (know it works on the Atrix) if something like this is important to people looking at different tablets...

I know nothing about the Toshiba, but...

Acer's A100 launched today. It's slightly smaller at 7" instead of 10", but it only costs $330 and comes with Android 3.2 out of the box. Getting pretty tempting...

Yeah, I saw that app after I posted. They say there should be video support eventually but it's not there yet.

That would be great, but for now I would be content to just be able to monitor the shot. I can buy a seperate monitor, but it would be nice to have that funtionality with something that I could use for other purposes as well.
