Android? Aoogle? Besides. This is a true tablet. Not some capacitive touch fingertoy. Wacom digitizers make all the difference.

And. Here's what I think of your iPad.

I dont use an iPad either. IMO, they are all over priced for what they do. If it had built in wireless, it would be worth it. Why would I want to stick that dongle on a $1000 pad. Ha, I can do that on my laptop already. The MeMo looks more versatile.

Because some companies dont allow personal laptops in the workspace but find tablets and slates just fine to use during work hours?

Ohh right, now you'd going to call the iPad a "toy". Get over yourself my friend. If it weren't for Apple, we wouldnt be seeing this tablet craze at all. Windows tablets may have existed for years and years, but consumer tablets haven't. Apple single handedly created this market for everyone. That's not fanboyism, that's just common accepted knowledge by anyone that's not emotionally invested into an operating system or brand perference.

Personally, I don't want a 3G or 4G radio in any consumer device I own other than my cell phone. Not everyone needs it, so why pay for it? Especially since WIFI is basically everywhere.

Popularized, yes. First, no.

I actually want all of them.
So SEX.
Usually best to ignore him. He likes to troll, but rarely actually makes any real points. To say these won't make a dent, lol. Will any of these, or all of them combined even sell as much as the next iPad? No. But when every B&M store has these laid out next to the iPad, especially when they start at $100 cheaper, or throw in features like a keyboard or dock, and a dent they will indeed make.

Throw in the probably 8-10 other quality tablets we'll see soon, and well, you get the picture. Apples 90 some odd percent market share will be at most 70% after one generation of competition. Won't take long for that number to change further, especially as people with android phones decide they want a tablet with the same OS.
