    Nice to see what the moderators thought, personally if I can get enough cash I'll be getting it definitely. Also BBCode fail.

    No. I'll wait for the second generation (or possibly the third, knowing what they did for the iPhone 3Gs). Anyway, 2010 turns out to be very competitive on the tablet niche. Because that's what it is right now, a niche. Notion Ink's Adam sounds promising (Pixel Qi is the sh*t) and the fact that it has an open platform (Android) and a USB port would mean I'll get to use my 3G dongle - which came free from my ISP which has a pretty decent download speed and ok coverage (it IS free after all, unless I want to pay $5 a month for extra). Oh, and it also has a 180° camera and costs 3/4 of the iPad ($320). Except for the software maybe (which cam be IMPROVED given its openness) it practically pisses all over the iPad.

    Seriously. Pixel Qi, Tegra 2, USB, Android, 3/4 the cost of an iPad... You would have to be a dumbass to get an iPad at these specs. Pixel Qi is WAY better for e-books (and reading in general).


    Someone told me Tegra 2 can run Unreal 3. Is that true ? That's pretty impressive... I've also been told it can run three 1080p videos at the same time. Was he pulling my leg ? Is Tegra 2 that powerful ?

    Some good points raised here, I for one won't be buying one (in this generation at least).

    I'm with Skylar 100%. Apple had a chance to do something epic here and completely change the way people use and view technology as a whole. instead they went for the safe baby step approach as if they weren't already one of the leaders in mobile technology. they re-invented the wheel and as it turns out, It's still just a wheel.
