    The real answer(till yet) to the iPad is the Notion Ink Adam.
    It has a 10.1 inch pixel Qi touch screen and runs android. It has 180 degree swivel camera which can switched quite easily.

    It supports multitasking and supports Flash! Happy?

    And more reasons to be happy-

    Its price starts from $327 !!!
    (though touchscreen interface on the basic model may not be present)

    If this thing ends up being half as good as it looks on paper, it'll be excellent. I want one!!!

    im tempted to buy this, but i might go for iPad (just cause it does everything i need). plus this seems a tad bulky, but ill have to test both out when released.

    Can't say for sure what's best until you test them yourselves.

    The Adam weighs 1.7 lbs and the iPad weighs 1.5 lbs so I don't think there's that much of a difference. The screen is 10.1" instead of iPad's 9.7" but the bezel on the iPad is bigger than the one on the Adam (I think).

    New video: http://www.engadget.com/2010/02/16/notion-ink-adam-hands-on-with-video-at-mwc-2010/

    So apparently they're looking at a 3rd quarter 2010 release and there will be two different Adams, one that is 12.9mm thick that has this awesome Qi e-paper screen (I'm not gonna lie, I have no idea what that is) and then one that is 11.6mm thick. Still no word on prices but I'm really starting to dig this tablet.

    THATS a REAL tablet
    i just hope this sells and isnt overshadowed by the ipads fanwagon.


    edit: after viewing the videos i realised theres a trackpad at the backside of the thing, so its not a touch-interface to my understanding.
    im a bit sceptical but ill wait till i know more.

    ya, i just noticed that it isn't a touch screen. that is unfortunate. carrying around a keyboard and a tablet isn't as convenient. Still better than the ipad tho

    that would of made sense..

    but you obviously didnt read the specs.

    it comes with 3 USB ports. Please Troll elsewhere.

    "LIGHT TRAVELS FASTER THAN SOUND.

    ...UNTIL YOU HEAR THEM SPEAK. "

    after more reading it seems like the adam has both a mutli tocuh screen and a track pad underneath i think.


    anyways:

    3 USB ports
    HDMI
    Flash support
    up to 24 hours of battery life with normal usage
    runs android
    1080p video out
    SD card slot

    not only that but it comes with FULL bluetooth and not that restricted one caused by the iphoneOS. Which means it will be able to locate your cellphone and other bluetooth devices out of the box, youll also easily be able to use it as a wireless gaming controller..


    ipad has nothing on this.
