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.

I saw a commercial for the Xoom for $199 at Verizon I think...probably a black Friday deal.

I saw that, too. Not sure if it's black Friday exclusive, but I'm sure it requires a 2-yr contact.

Still a good deal though.

Definitely requires a contract. Deal is mediocre at best for me.

Newegg had the Toshiba Thrive 10" for $199. I had it in my cart at 12:02, clicked on checkout, and got timed out b/c they had already sold out.

That sucks. I got in on that $159 Dell Streak 7 from Best Buy. Should be a decent little toy for cheap. That Toshiba deal would have been nice though.

I originally had one if the nook color devices that I had installed the cyanogen mod 7 on and loved it. Recently though, I upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and couldn't be happier. Great device. I personally have not been a fan of the whole 10.1" form factor especially for reading in portrait mode. The 8.9" screen is a great alternative. It still gives all of the tablet size usefulness but is a little easier to hold one handed and easier to use in portrait mode when reading.

Don't know if it will go much on a sale but I can say that it is really one worth considering.

prices are getting low on these because there is a second generation of devices coming. Look for tablets with the tegra three processors in them. The first will be the Asus transformer prime due out in mid December.

I'm waiting. I considered buying my sons (4 & 7) tablets for Christmas this year, but I think I'll wait one more year. I don't want an iPad for them, but I do want something that is dependable, functional, durable, and will give them a few years of functionality as an entertainment/educational device.

I saw the Vizio 8" tablet at Costco for $189. You would probably need to spend another $20-30 for an memory card. I wanted to buy a tablet at Best Buy because I have a gift card there and I don't know how long they'll be around.

The reviews aren't bad for the tablet when it was $350. The $189 price plus the Costco warranty might be too tempting for me to resist. Anyone have any experience with these?

I placed a preorder for the Transformer Prime. I really want something before the new year, and nothing else is out there.

I'm someone that should never buy electronics, because I obsess too much about waiting for the next thing. But I'm happy with ICS, and I think the TP offers enough where I'll be happy with it and not wanting something else in 6 months.

Nice. Looks like they've officially confirmed it for a December 8th release date. I'm damn tempted to go ahead and place my pre-order...

I think reviews are embargoed until tomorrow, so there should be some further temptation for you then, assuming it lives up to expectations.

Where'd you pre-order yours? I was going to go ahead and take the plunge, but now Newegg and Amazon are both "out of stock." I could preorder from Best Buy, but then I'd have to pay sales tax.

I guess I got lucky and got in on Amazon before they took down the preorders. I'll have to watch it and make sure I don't get canceled. I don't mind when I get it though, as long as it's before new years.

There are a couple places that are still selling though. Check out XDA for some info:

Hmm...well, I may just hold off for a while. Rumor has it they may officially announce the release date tomorrow, so I'll wait and see for now at least. Good to know there are options, though.
