True, it depends on what will be done with it.
In my opinion, I think I'd LIKE
for it to lean more toward a netbook in terms of capabilities (low-end computing needs), and less toward a personal media device. But I think I feel that way because of the "just in case" scenario, where I might NEED something like that.
The issue I have with android media players--at least for the Android 2.2+ (haven't used the honeycomb OS yet) is that while there are a variety of media players to suit needs, there isn't often a one-size-fits-all option. Actually, that kinda describes the Android market in general. Lots of stuff that you could probably find to do something you need done, but then you have to worry about a ton of 3rd party apps and widgets. For that reason, I like the windows option better.
Still mulling it over...
