I am pulling this from my memory from an article on Android Central a week or so ago though, so don't hold me 100% accountable.
I pre orderd. Why? Because even if the new one rocks, this will be great for watching amazon tv shows and surfing the web on the go. An updated version won't change that.

What this isn't is a general purpose tablet, I am hoping version 2 will be. If it is, I will likely pick up the 10 inch version of that for normal tablet purposes and I'll have a more portable 7 inch device that will fit in a jacket pocket.

The Touchpad proved that there is a massive demand for an AFFORDABLE tablet and this looks to be the first one to hit that magical $200 price point. Imagine if the Galaxy 10.1 were $250; there'd be a riot at every BB....

No it isn't. If I wanted an amazon tablet I would not buy it now because the next one is right around the corner. But the one after that isn't.

The "something better is always around the corner" doesn't take brand preference into consideration. In my opinion the gs 10.1 tablet is still the best out and we've around turned some corners.

People love to spend $200 instead of $500 for a tablet. Especially for a tablet made by a trusted brand. I must say, for $200, this really packs an impressive punch. Love the cloud storage and the accelerated web browsing. I've never wanted a tablet before, but at $200, this is a tough product to pass by. I'm seriously thinking about getting this.

I can see this really taking out the legs of the iPad because it caters to a market iPad wasn't designed to cater to. This appeals to techies who want a cool product, but don't want to pay a ridiculous price for it.

By-the-way, these pre-order numbers are amazing, but I'm not surprised. After researching it a bit, it's really an impressive product for the price.

Exactly what I was trying to say-- there is a market which has been dying to get a tablet, but couldn't afford it-- well now they can.

That's like saying why have a smartphone? It's an under powered computer. Just get a phone that only makes phone calls.

$200-250 is the perfect price range for tablets IMO, tablets should replace netbooks. If it hasn't already.
