I wait on a tablet with Win 7. I don't like Android stuff. I have the iPhone 4 and love it and all the apps. iPad 2, I'll wait and see.

Anyone use a Viewsonic Viewpad 10 yet? http://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-View...8993729&sr=1-1

It supports Android 1.6 and Win 7 HP. It looks like an amazing device for the price.

where do you see android 2.2?

in description "Win 7 Home Premium & Google Android (1.6)"

how does that Intel Pine Trail compare to Tegra2?

Sorry I confused the Android version with another tablet I was looking at. It's 1.6.

The tablet looks amazing. The ability to run Win7 HP feature is amazing. Apparently Win7 wasn't really designed to be run on a tablet though and lacks some features. That's what some of the reviews said.

To be honest...

My boss bought an iPad for work here at the library (along with a nook and kindle) as we explored ereaders and other things.

I had the ipad for a week and used it maybe twice. i simply cannot find a use for it between my laptop and ipod/smartphone. it doesnt fill a need i currently have so, to my amazement, i never used it and handed it back in.

having a full pledge OS on tablet is a amazing feature. Would be nice, if it was N550 (dual core Atom)

The tablet that uses a Tegra 250 3D will be a good tablet to own I think. Kal-El looks even nicer but a while yet.

current Xoom is only a 250 I believe

I'm waiting for reviews on this thing

Windows 7 is actually quite well designed for tablets, however the programs you run on it aren't.

Intel's atom architecture sucks though, x86 as a whole is just inherently energy inefficient, which really matters for mobile platforms. Contrast to that of ARM which is doing extremely well.

It seems that the iPad 2 is coming with a dual core cpu. Same price as the iPad 1.
