Android Tablets

Does anyone own/played around with an Android powered tablet, yet? I think they're actually pretty cool. Today I went to Staples and noticed the Motorola Xoom and Dell Streak 7 tablets on display.

I went with trying out the Streak 7 because it was the closest to me. Smiley Tongue You know, that thing is actually pretty cool! A good size and pretty easy to work. I didn't know it had a camera, so that was kind of cool. And it's pretty much just like my phone, so there's more Android at it's finest!

Re: Android Tablets

Im with you on that thought. I dont think anyone, for that matter, would consider holding it to t he face as a norm. Im sure they anticipate using bluetooth. Same as if todays 10 tabs had phone capability, right? Smiley Happy

Re: Android Tablets

I like the Toshiba as opposed to the Lenovo, but the HTC Flyer still is my favorite. However, it's far from my price range compared to the Galaxy Tab and Lenovo IdeaPad A1 that fit it more competitvely. I don't think I'll ever get a tablet though - I don't really see a need for one. My phone and iPod work just fine.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 only has an internal memory space. It doesn't have a microSD slot for expandable memory.

That was the specification that killed the possibility of purchasing one for me.

Why would it kill the possibility for you?  Considering that video compressed properly for the Tab 10.1 is around 1-2 GB/hour, this means that worst case, you'd have to plug in a thumb drive every few hours to transfer files onto the Tab.

 

A small price in convenience to pay for the Tab 10.1's thin form factor and high-quality display (Superior to any of the other Honeycomb devices I tried.)

 

Oh yeah, and in case it isn't obvious from my post - the $20 USB host adapter for the Tab 10.1 is a must-have accessory.  For the price of a 32GB Tab 10.1, you can get the 16 GB Tab 10.1, the USB host adapter, and two 32GB thumb drives.

Re: Android Tablets

@RicoLX, the Motorola XOOM has a microSD card slot.  I'm not sure if the Wi-fi only version has been updated to accept it yet, though, but the cellular version can use it.

 

@WB, I saw someone in a VZW store a while back holding the 7-inch Galaxy Tab up to his ear, pretending to be on the phone.  He was joking around, of course.  But it did look ridiculous.

 

I'm not sure if I posted it here, but the ultimate tablet-phone combination should be coming out by the end of this year.  It's called the Padfone.

21 ! Now THATS sleek! I was so afraid no post Dell Streak options would be available. Im tell you guys, the moment you do venture into a tablet/phone and we are talking about some "screenage", its very spoiling! You will love the combo and convenience

Re: Android Tablets

21stnow,
Have you received the instructions and/or packaging to get 4G LTE on your Xoom, yet?

Re: Android Tablets

No, nothing yet.  I'm losing hope that I will, because there is a rumor that a 4G XOOM is coming out.

 

I was kind of torn on whether or not I actually wanted the LTE radio, because I saw the problems that VZW's 4G phones had.  Even though it bothers me that we don't get what was advertised, the tablet works fine now.  I would hate it if the 4G radio messed up a good thing.  Also, before I got the XOOM, I thought that I wouldn't mind mailing it back to Motorola.  Now that I'm attached to the XOOM, I don't want to send it back to them. 

 

I won't worry about it now.  I'll just wait to see what they tell us in the future.
