I have been doing a bit of googling for info on tablets but on these forums it seems that the Android forum is mostly "filled"  with Smartphone posts.

I know there are now quite a few listers with tablets and it would be nice to be able to get some tablet specific info without browsing through information more related to phones.

I have just bought my wife an iPad and now I want to get and Android Tablet for myself. So far I have identified the following requirements:

10" screen
WiFi/3G(4G??? I know its not here yet but I am not one to change hardware every few months/years)
SD/MiniSD for storage
USB
Bluetooth
A keyboard dock would be nice
front/Rear cameras - not sure of pixel number but probably 5mp at least
"Generic" charger connection

Probably my front runner is the Galaxy Tab10.1 if I go by reviews but it misses on some of the requirements on my list.Undecided

Any comments? What have I missed? I know Tech Radar has some good reviews but things are moving so fast their reviews are almost out of date by the time they hit the net.

I find the existing forums fine. There are too many very specific forums as it is, I wouldn't like to see more bloat.

Posts like this should go into the geekzone forum

If you get one with a full sized USB port, you should be able to use any USB keyboard rather than an expensive bespoke one.
USB is also useful for charging your phone.

I have an Iconia which ticks most of those boxes, not that new anymore but coming down in price all over.
