    I see the OP didn't include my Two 32GB BlackBerry Playbooks - Dual Core 1GH, 7" screen size, flash support and bloody responsive/fast. The new OS2 is amazing.

    Today I received OTA update 2 for ICS Asus Transformer 100

    It offered me to register at "devicetracking.asus.com" but it rejected my serial.

    Got an Asus Transformer 101 last week, refurbished from newegg but with over a year's warranty. no dock, got a stylus and case for it though, and a spare charger :)

    loving ICS right now :) i did root and put a custom rom on, but it's very close to stock just supposedly more efficient, etc - but really i wanted a custom kernel module to help with my shared network drives.

    not much else to say yet, getting accustomed. small problem with it reading the battery level, but i think a wipe fixed that. Any apps i must have? wallpapers? themes? roms? recommendations!!!

    Woops haven't updated myself in here for a while.

    Have a Galaxy Tab 10.1 32GB. Not rooted or anything. Use it mainly as an e-reader, skyping parents on Sunday mornings, and watching videos.

    Hanging out badly for the ICS update though.

    I like where the Kindle Fire is heading. If that had been released when I bought my G Tab, I probably would have had a hard time choosing. That said, given that I use mine mainly for reading, I'm hugely interested in seeing what colour e-ink looks like.

    it only lacks GSM, also like Asus Prime, they are amazing devices with amazing hardware specs and support - something Samsung sucks at - but only lacks the GSM thing :(

    the other Tablet...

    well an obvious statement is that the Ipad3 (new Ipad) display is awesome.

    Of course I don't have an Ipad2, only the Ipad(1) 64GB 3G. Sad to say but the Ipad1 is underpowered, after a year of using it and in the last 4 months i started to get annoyed at the "little" slowdowns while surfing.
    the 3 character pause that sometimes happens, the display is anti-aliased thus making it slightly blurry (perhaps a made-up complaint, i wear glasses, and perhaps exacerbated by my want for the Ipad3, which through saving for it I self-inflicted a small-hell on myself:cool:)
    the graphic power is a bit weak for todays games.
    BUT:rockout:after using the Ipad3 for a while then going back to the Ipad1, i found that I was creating a self-fulfilling prophecy, in order to get myself to buy the Ipad3.


    having said all that, the Ipad3's display is just gorgeous, so it is a worth-while purchase for it alone; but if you have an Ipad2, aside from the display, everything else is pretty much the same.

    :respect:

    :rockout: Right, it is the same dimension, IE height, width, and length as the tablet itself. Even in the clam-shell closed position it is still less than an inch thick.

    Well, I have not posted here in a while.
    If DON is still updating his thread..
    I got a Toshiba Excite Write (32G version), because my ASUS transformer got knock off the table and is in limb home mode.

    The Toshiba... I like it, however, it uses up battery fast (I run it on performance mode) and the AC wifi is great.
    I generates a good amount of warmth in the back upper left area.
    It is fast responsive, the display is very clear and appealing. Not washed out, blurry or bleeding.
    It has the perfect feel of weight for me (The ASUS was light and sort of flimsy) and seems solid.

    As, for My wife's Moto XOOM. It is still kicking along and she won't give it up.
