Thread Starter 
Im debating and choosing between buying one of these two tabs. I dont have a tab right now and I was considering getting one. Im not interested in the Ipad. So which one should I buy and why? Which is better?

Depends on what you want.

Do you want a removable backplate, ton of ports, removable battery, but can deal with thickness? Go with Thrive.

Or do you not want a bunch of ports but gain back the thinness factor and what Anand calls a brilliant screen (by the numbers)?
