latest "game changing" Android tablet

I'd love for an actual game changing Android tablet to be released, but
this one sounds very interesting.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/245627/99_ice_cream_sandwich_tablet_to_debut_in_us.html

Only $99 and it runs true Android unlike the Kindle. In fact it runs
the latest release of Android currently available with Ice Cream
Sandwich. 1080p video, front and rear cameras, HDMI out... that's a
lot of stuff for just $99.

Makes me glad I didn't buy a refurb TouchPad yesterday. 🙂

I would think not being able to plug a memory stick in to move files
would be a big downer. I'm on the road, someone wants to give me a few
files that maybe too big to e-mail. You would think that would be an
obvious inclusion...

Hence the docking station. But I suppose I have different needs than others.

No I get that, I'm just thinking that if you're out somewhere, say at a
clients with your tablet and they want to give you some files. If you
have to lug the dock around everywhere, you might as well have a netbook 🙂

True, I don't believe I would have that issue TBH but others would. I
think people have found a work around for that as most of the current
tablets dont have usb ports.

I just like it because it is shiny and slick 🙂

I guess if I HAD one I might have a use for a USB connection, but I always find
these comments about "omissions" (whether they be iPad, Android, whatever) to be
less bothersome than they might seem. I have many ways of getting files to my
iPad that do not require USB (or email), like DropBox, WebDAV, etc., and I've
yet to really "need" USB at all. So, those kinds of specs don't bother me.

If you have a docking station, yeah - heehee. I dunno, I've yet (after 1-1/2
years of use) found a need for a keyboard or docking station for my iPad. But
then again, I can type in the 45-50WPM range now on my soft keyboard. When I
was a secretary needing to type 100+ WPM I might have found that bothersome, but
these days I find 45-50WPM pretty fast!

I get that. I'm bothered that some phones lack a micro sd slot despite
not having used it on any of my previous phones that had them. Sure I
don't use it, but what if I need it someday?!?!?!? 😛

I've had phones with micro sd slots that I forgot were even there - heehee.

For a minute there I thought you were calling me senile 😉 Dyslectic is more like it!

But for the record, I meant the TF101... which rocks already & looking forward to the 4.0 ICS release for it.

Also getting the Galaxy Nexus today... curious to see how that one will be (besides big! 🙂 )
