    I'm sure most of us heard the news about the HP Slate and Asus Eeepad. At the moment I'm leaning towards the Eeepad because of USB 3 and HDMI out. Still a sucker for iOS though, got too many ipas to just ditch the OS (My iDevices were dropped in water and some are lost at work).

    RIM's playbook is debuting this week.

    I'm in no hurry to get a tablet though, might pick up interest in a couple years when the price drops and they get more powerful.

    I was thinking maybe a year or so. Wonder how much the "netbooks" are going to drop in that time frame?

    Honestly I still love the iPad and iPod touch 4g I own they are great products and this is coming from one of if not the biggest apple hater out there. I gota deal I couldn't pass up on both products and now I love these damn things. As far as more powerful goes though thats happening soon. Just take a look at the psp2 being announced the 27th

    The Noot. As cheap as an iPod Touch, as powerful as all its tablet brethren.
    Ellipses go here.

    The 9" screen 'Topaz' may have potential. I have no interest at all in the 7" tablets. I already have an iPhone 4; I don't need another pocket PC.

    I don't think the words iPod Touch and Cheap belong in the same sentence. Besises the nooks are dead slow from what I have seen. Even not jailbroken just reading books takes seconds to load that the iPad doesn't.
