I was playing with one of these in JB Hi-Fi and was amazed at how slick Honeycomb is. It is much superior to iOS on the iPad in my opinion. The only thing that the iPad has on this is the thousands of applications in the store. I'm sure this will catch up eventually.

I think this tablet would be an ideal eBook reader for me. I have a small collection (13) of legally purchased eBooks from the Kobo store and I've tried reading them on a tiny smartphone screen but it gets tiring squinting to read the text.

Currently I have nothing (iamge attached), so they would be an excellent edition to my empty hands! Would go down a treat in helping plan for my wedding also.

Dear Oprah...

No wait, that's not it. Um, wrong TV program? Erm... anyway...

It's got Honeycomb! How could I not want something with Honeycomb on it! See, I've got a bit of the flu and they said Honey would be good for it. Now, that one doesn't look like a very sticky one, but it should do, I'm sure!

But really, it's actually because the emulator with the Android SDK is verrrrrrrry slooooooooow. Like, molasses slow. Horrific even. I'd like to actually be able to develop for Android tablets without a 40 minute wait for it to boot.

A tablet would be awesome for me when out on jobs in remote areas where total weight of items I can carry is at a premium, as I'd be able to preload it with all sorts of material. Have nothing like this, only a cheap phone which nowhere near cuts the mustard...

I would love one of these for my wife so that she could see the value of this great new technology. Her current tablet is a whiteboard..

The only tablet I have is in the medicine cabinet Cry and the only thing in my house that responds to touch commands is my old CRT TV....ie it needs a good thump now and again to keep it going!

Im a total nerd and the chance to get a new toy makes my eyes light up. I've never had a droid before however i'll probably end up giving it to my mum as it seems oddly suited for her business needs in rehabilitation therapy.

Well here is my current touchscreen tablet,

The Iconia would be cool as it would give me access to a better class of game
I'm thinking dungeon defenders - first wave

My current device is the mighty Nexus One. It's a great phone, but some things are just better suited to a tablet, like reading and gaming! So thats why I want the Iconia.
Also I do some android app dev so this would come in handy!

I think we may need to upgrade our technology suite.



As you can see, it has a simple interface that even my husband can use. However, he still hasn't written Hamlet.

I myself have upgraded to a more multifunctional piece of hardware. Not only can I write and post up to 3 articles a day (there is a mailbox right next to the dairy on our street), I can also use it for Pilates!

I desperately need another tablet, since it appears that all I ever want to do with my Asus is play Fallout. Sweet, sweet Fallout.



Also, take pity on me: I don't have an iDevice and I'm still using a Palm.
