[AT] Tablet Hands-On Roundup

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Quote:
2011 is the Year of the Tablet. With all due respect to the rabbit, who would have otherwise been assigned to this year, I think the tablet has earned the right of representing 2011. If you followed CES at all this year, you’d know why.
I decided pretty early on that I would make a huge post with all the tablets we looked at instead of posting each one individually, simply because the sheer number of tablets on the show floor meant that I would have taken over AnandTech’s front page with tablet-related posts. It would have been impossible to cover all the new tablets, but I think we managed to get our hands on most of the high profile tablets in addition to some of the more promising new tablets out there.

Notion Ink Adam is probably the tablet I'll own.

Personally, it seems like THE BEST option available. Mostly because of the SD-Card & USB Drive support.

I just wonder about any sort of support for it after the fact in terms of customer support, software updates, yada yada. And there will be zero aftermarket products for it, if any first party accessories. Kinda hard to get behind a company/product like that. They aren't nearly well established for me to plop hundreds of dollars down on an unproven device. Frankly anyone that does is taking a pretty big risk.

In my opinion the best offerings are by Apple and Motorola.
