    Price going to cause others to go for Gome Flytouch 1 Epads, Maylong M150, PanImage, CVS Tablet Special an etc. Other choices are eLocity A7, A10 or CobyUSA Kryos MID7026 or MID7015 both with HDMI and one has Camera if you need it. Of course those that I just mentioned don't have tablet OS. Xoom is the first one with tablet OS. What's going to happen with Quad or 12-core versions coming out but that won't be until 2015? Right now here you have it Android or Apple. Which one? Windows 8 is being pushed as a Tablet supported OS using Apple iPad like GUI but that not going to appear at the estimated projected date of 2012. So for now we have the above to use. Still printing is an issue if you must print you can create PDF and save on the trees which I do on all platforms.

    Wow....just wow. The apple CPU is called the A4. It uses an ARM cortex A8 core. Do your research before posting.
  4. i went to best buy there was a zoom at $800 and an ipad at $500. nothing else to look at.
    last month and every month before that for the last year there was just the ipad. galaxy missed my best buy store? toshiba tablets never showed up? perhaps i need to buy online without having ever touched the product? i keep hearing there are all these tablets to choose from but where are they? i just picked up the friken ipad as i am tired of waiting. if i wanted that i could have had it a year ago, i dont want an ipad but how much longer should i wait before there is one to compare or how much longer before there are 3-4 i can touch and compare? i will head back around xmass hope to find a selection then.

    I may be missing something, why does your chart not display the battery life (at least the manufacturer buttered-up reported life) ?

    What to look for.. nothing. I'll stick with my desktop, laptop and 4.3inch screen smartphone thanks.
  8. Ipad 2 has 512MB of RAM. Just google, "ipad 2 ram 512mb" for proof.

    No wonder they won't publicly reveal how much RAM it has, cause it's only half of what the other tablets have!!
