The Galaxy Nexus' screen gets great reviews, too, but I hate it. I think there's just something about the PenTile arrangement in AMOLED that doesn't agree with me. I don't care what the reviews say, I'm not buying another device with AMOLED unless I get some hands-on experience with it first and can decide whether I can tolerate it.
I take that back. Did some more research on the Excite 7.7 and found it has a Super AMOLED Plus
display which uses a normal RGB arrangement instead of PenTile. Lol, placed an order for the 32GB model. By the way, I didn't get a lot of hits for Toshiba AT270 at online retailers. It appears that for the consumer/retail channels, Toshiba uses model number AT275 for the Toshiba Excite 7.7. Exact same thing and I think the device itself might report AT270 but the box says AT275.
Again, US. Doesn't seem as if Future Shop ships here. I don't think the Kobo Arc has been officially released in the US yet hence the price gouging. Best Buy does have it listed for $299.99 but it's not even available for pre-order yet. The product page just says "Coming Soon".

I think it'll be 450-500g but no definitely not 300-350g like the mini.
Internet Relay Chat. Basically peer-to-peer. Yeah, I think for the near future, best they'll be able to do is drop the iPad 10" in the 450-500g range. The thing is for marathon reading sessions, I find 300-350g is just barely acceptable for single-handed operation (200g or less would be ideal). If it's heavier than 350g, I'd still need to prop it so basically, there's no practical
difference between 450g and 650g for me despite the fairly significant weight decrease.Edited by rui-no-onna - 2/1/13 at 8:28am
