Very nice.

The Microsoft tablet is also very cool, far better than iPad imo.

Love my iPad2

Love it, love it, love it.

Will confess to owning an antique cell phone, so I have gone from zero to 60 pretty quickly. And I'm a happy Apple user with an Apple household.

There, that's all the disclosures you need.

Love it, love it, love it.

Wow, a "Fair and Balanced" review

Google should stick to the software business ... anybody actually buy their Google Phone...remember that failure... they dumped it like a hot potato and developed Android so hardware manufacturers could build a decent phone to run it on .. which has worked out well

Have you actually held one?

Other than the X-Box what hardware has Microsoft ever built that wasn't a flop?

Anyone using a Microsoft Smart Phone with Windows CE... Anyone...Bueller...Anyone...

The difference between Microsoft and Google is at least Google writes good software.




When I was a young fellah starting out in the tech business.. HP was a respected engineering company who, while not flashy produced rock solid products. Then Carly Fiorina bought Compaq and the quality has never been the same. They now make "ho-Hum" computers and compete on price .

Many companies including Microsoft tried to make a go at tablets and crashed and burned.

Apple got it right and sells the dang things like hot cakes.

Now all the "Johnny come lately's " are trying to play catch up.

When you read a review, check to see if they are comparing their product to the iPad2 or the original.


... feel free to disagree... and then go listen to music on your

I just got a 24 inch monitor for it this week for my laptop and eternal mouse/keyboard..so it is basically now another desktop. The ipad looks like a nice toy but I've spent enough of my life in front of a computer, I don't need one following me around to every conceivable place.

I bought the G2 google phone and loved it. Was stolen so went back to my Windows Mobile and truly see how lacking it is in almost every regard to just about every other smartphone out there. But I won't buy an iphone or touch phone only just yet, I'm a big fan of having a keyboard on my phone.

Nope ... but I will be buying a Windows 7 tablet/slate:

Asus Eee Slate Review - Tablet Reviews by MobileTechReview

Why .. because I want a tool that also allows me to CREATE content (i.e., word, excel etc) rather than just CONSUME content (i.e., games, movies etc).
