    Specs:
    Screen: 10.2" or 12.1", resolution 1024x768, multitouch & capacitive
    CPU: Intel Atom processor 1.6 GHz
    Memory: 2GB memory, 250GB harddrive
    Connectivity: WiFi, 3G, HDMI optional
    OS: various Windows versions and Linux support
    Other stuff: 3 USB ports, 1.3MP webcam, probably bluetooth headphone socket and a cardreader.
    Weight: 1.2Kg

    Personal thoughts? Nice, basicly unlimited functionality because of the several operation systems to choose from. Downside is that this thing will be fat as an elephant and will probably have terrible batterytime compared to the iPad. Next to that the interface will be crap (I dont mind the looks of windows, but touching windows icons @ 1024*768? I'm crying aready.)
    I think this device is what a lot of people hoped the iPad to be (but with OSX that is). This is also exactly the reason why should be glad the iPad didnt turn out that way. The iPad will kick the iTablets ass for three simple reasons, its light and thin, batterylife is awesome and the interface is pretty much perfect for finger/mobile use (even though it has a lot of limitations).

    You didn't even LOOK at the picture or at the text did you...
    Some people say stupid questions do not exist, I'm glad you took the time to invent them.

    Possibly? idk. Maybe if it had USB input you could put in a laptop and a mouse and it wouldn't make a difference (and would be totally awesome as well).

    But with video games moving toward digital distribution I think it would be unwise to create games on CDs for Tablets if it ever comes to that, so I guess new video games on CDs for Tablets would be a terrible idea.

    or you could transfer all the stuff from cds onto your computer first then put them onto a usb stick to transfer the music, and you can buy it with Linux installed already or if you want to dual boot, which I'm sure it will be able to, you could just install Linux from a usb stick.

    thats right but its way easyer to just put the CD into the device and listen / copy the music onto the device...
