    If the base model were to drop to $100 I'd pick one without a second thought.

    It will all depend on the playbook 2, it thats failure then RIM should just scrap the idea and move on. But the price drop should move the remaining units, maybe

  6. Hopefully much lower.....When they are below the price of a NETbook they might sell some..Till then..Only people who like to spend large amounts of cash on toys are buyin.
  7. The next year or 18 months will start to show us where the tablet market is going.
    I have a ASUS transformer and a new ASUS EP121 windows tablet.

    The EP121 is fabulous (except battery life and $1000 price tag). Of course, it is a productivity product versus entertainment product. When Windows becomes available on lower cost architecture, I can see it doing well with people as a productivity device.

    The Ipad will be the entertainment tablet king for some time.

    My opinion of Android and IOS, is that you can get plenty of "apps"
    but get you can't get good "applications".

    Again, my need in a tablet is "to do useful work". My kindle and LCD TV fit my entertainment needs.
