That's what I thought when I got my cell phone. It sucked more ass than a vacuum attached to Oprah's rear end. I now have a real Garmin GPS on my motorcycle instead of using that all in one/half ass GPS cell phone.

There's actually an app you can get for android that allows you to plan a route in advance, and it downloads all of the map data you need, so it works without a connection. The name escapes me at the moment.

I wasn't interested in a tablet at all until the touchpad was almost as cheap as greedos mom.

You can say it one more time. No way in hell would I have bought this Touchpad at the original price or even half of that . For $99 I couldn't pass it up.

Is not having a USB port on the ASUS Transformer that big of a deal?

Anyways, I finally was able to pick up an HP touchpad this past weekend so I'm going to give it a whirl. First I'm going to see if WebOS does the trick with regards to my needs. If not, I'm going to power up ubuntu and give that a shot. If that doesn't work I"m going to EBay it and pick up the Samsung Tab 10.1. Maybe by then the xoom 2 will be out and from the rumors floating around, that looks like it might be a kick ass device.
