What are you wanting to do with this tablet? If you are looking for a hardware beast, you ought to wait to see what Apple has built in to the iPad 2 later this week OR you can wait for another couple of months for the Android camp to come up with something. From what I've seen, the Xoom is a really nice tablet but man is it expensive. And if the iPad2 stays around the $499 price point, it's going to be extremely hard for these other companies to compete.
