    Is Android good enough to be installed on tablets? I think it is good for phones but not tablets that are supposed to be netbooks replacement.
     
  2. If all of this is true, what the hell is this?

    Too many companies jumping in the tablet race will need a standout tablet that can actually give a urge to buy one really need some other features probably new ones to replace the existing gadgets all tablets coming out seem to just doing rounds around a fixed point they need to do have standout features if they want to compete otherwise only the reputed larger brands are the ones that are going to make profits.

    Over priced and under featured. Still not what I'm looking for, come on table manufacturers, get your act together.

    It's not going to compete iPad with those price tags. Despite that, a Windows 7 tablet is something that is worth some extra money.

    I have completely skipped through the laptop phase. I've never owned a laptop. And it's a good thing that tablets are gaining popularity and are becoming mainstream, hence becoming cheaper and better at the same time.

    So I plan to just have a desktop for my workstation and a tablet for mobility. Nice combination. No space for laptops in my master plan!
