The only one I have tried is the Galaxy tab , i honestly did think it was good at what it done and with all the bonuses that android has over apple also , but im sure you will tar this with the same brush as its quite expensive - at least in the UK .

truthfully paulieg, also check around till the 20th.. December is suppose to be when they let out a few more tablets... it's not worth it to get a ipad.. The android tablets will do far more then what a ipad will ever do.. Plus, kindle app will be so good for your daughter to have... lol.. but, like you say, a 7in would be perfect size. even able to place in the backpack and use it to take notes..

Archos looks like a no go. The 10 and 7 inch are out of stock everywhere. Wonder if I should bite the bullet with a knockoff....

Can't really gamble with 12/20. Really need to get it done over the next day or 2.

I couldn't manage to get z4root on the marketplace :( I wonder what the odds are of the Galaxy S getting Gingerbread?
All of the Galaxy S phones are supposed to get Gingerbread; the timeframes are just kind of sketchy. I would bet by the Spring.

yeah i had an archos 70 on pre-order from JR.com since september, yet it just kept pushing back.

if you want one, pay attention to the archos.com(uk, etc) site, as that's your most guaranteed way of getting one soon. retailers are just getting them, and i've had mine in hand for almost 2 weeks.

They go up on sale on the archos site for about 2-3 hours at a time, and then go back to notify, but i had mine in hand 2 days after ordering from them directly.

canceled my order with jr, obviously.

Hey paulie, how's your craigslist? We get posts for the knock-offs...called apads. Usually these guys buy bulk and sell on the street. Not great, but not trash.

You can add me to the clubhouse. I've had a Nexus One since release day...just never thought about joining a clubhouse, lol. It's rooted and running Enomther's ROM 2.14.2 with wildmonk's 2.6.35.7 SVS-950mV BFS AXI 720p 1152mhz kernel. I've been through the gamut of ROMs and this is easily the fastest, most stable ROM to date.

EDIT: The battery life is also quite substantial, better than any ROM I have used.

Yes, several different MIUI ROMs. I went right back to AOSP. The only thing I like from MIUI was the browser, which I now use and can be downloaded on the market: Miren Browser.

I should be getting the Nexus S sometime mid next week :)
Nice! I'm holding out until the Tegra 2 and Orion phones start rolling out Q1 '11. The Nexus S isn't really much of an upgrade from the Nexus One.

Don't get me wrong, it's nice and all, but meh. I'm a huge phone buff too, I normally get a new phone every other month or so. The Nexus One has been my longest lasting phone and I've had other phones while I've had my N1.

Subscribed and would like to join. Just moved off a Samsung i760 Win 6.x mobile "smart phone" to a Droid X . Needless to say, it's like moving out of the stone age.

Other than figuring out how to sync to my Google calendar, contacts and email, I haven't installed much other than Angry Birds, RealCalc and Solitare.

The voice recognition in the Droid X is absolutely amazing. Texting and driving is no more, I simply voice out what I want to say. Even with all the road noise, it almost always gets it spot on.

I strongly recommend Google Voice, even with the slight delay for VOIP. Also, since I use Chrome to browse, I like the Chrome-to-Phone app. Lets me send any page I've got open in chrome (including maps, etc) to my phone instantly :)

Chrome-to-phone is cool, another good one I've found that syncs your Chrome bookmarks is called ChromeMarks.

for myself, the pros simply involved being able to disable Swype, Skype, and any of the rest of the crap Verizon forced on my phone. I didn't bother to load up a Mod, altho I did do some researching into which mods I might run. My main interest was getting all their crap gone.
