As much as people seem to despise Apple here on AD, one can't deny that when they come out with something new the rest of the industry follows suit.

Ok this is really sad people are getting all pumped up over something that has been out on ebay for months really I just bought a 7 inch android 2.1 for christmas as a gift for someone for under that 200.00 price and that included shipping and I got a 8inch coming for even less and its 2.2 and has a cam and skype and flash for half that so why isnt anyone freaked about that 200.oo price tag? it can be bought for 100.00 if you look.. come on people lets save our money and buy more for less ... and who cares the name brand if it works....

I just decided that to be a good smartphone (superphone if you may) it had to came out with 1ghz processor, following that thought to be a GOOD tablet it needs a dual core... So I will wait, 2011 is the year of tablets. I almost got the Archos 101, took to long to be available, now i think I can wait a little more for so decent. Apple is not an option to me, and i want a tablet to be at home, my phone do everything i need on the go.

Im not sure about everyone else, but I always wanted a tablet...
Nobody ever made anything decent... I thank all the Apple fan that is making this possible. Pushing industry to make decent products. I see Apple not been that great company, but the followers wow, thats unbeaten... i remember when ipad was to be announced apple fans were looking to buy whatever it was for whatever price... that is good, they pay the high cost of development and we can get the mass factoring price
