HP Slate has been scrapped, just so you know.
I really don’t believe the iPad is meant to be a tablet. Its not. If people are buying it thinking its a tablet, they are retarded. Its made for media consumption, ebook reading, and casual gaming.
Anything that is aiming to compete with the iPad, but runs on the android OS is just stupid. People complain that the iPad is a terrible tablet computer that really can’t do anything that a netbook or any other tablet can do. A tablet that runs Android has the exact same restrictions. But the app store for the android isn’t that great. It’s nothing compared to the iPhone/iPad app store. So you are going to be paying slightly less for less apps, less battery power, heavier, and not as nice looking.
