Re: Android Tablet

Highly doubtful they would have to import US stock.

EDIT - But we'll see I guess.

the price could be a lot worse - and may actually be lower by the time they become available. They're not importing the US version, but the EU version from Vodafone, which doesn't have a definite release-date yet.

I am using a rooted Nook Color. Works fine for what I need

Of course, it is all down to what you need the tablet for; for instance it isn't the best movie player around.
very tempted to get the nook:

honeycomb has also been released for this.

Re: Android Tablet

I was maybe, sort of thinking of the Samsung Tablet 10.1.

The price has been announced as 699 EUR in Spain and Portugal, so reckon with a price around 15'750 CHF in Switzerland.

Yeah, need to run off emmc tho, haven't had the time to check it out just yet. There are videos on Youtube of people running it - it look very fluid even though it's just the SDK version.

I wouldn't buy the Galaxy Tab - it's not upgradable to 2.4 (doesn't meet the minimum requirement) and you won't be able to get rid of it for a decent price as ricardo & co are flooded with those things.

I am seriously considering the 'soon to be released' dual core Tab 10.1 as an upgrade to my iPad. The only unknown at this stage is battery life, if its anything less than 6 - 7 hours that would be a deal breaker.

there are some unofficial back-ports but officially, it's unsupported.

Re: Android Tablet

Totally misinterpreted the title...

Thought this might be another one of those "which diet should i be on" threads...

And that they have pills for that stuff??!

I pre-ordered the Xoom - but have the feeling that it won't be available here until summer. If the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available sooner, I'll probably cancel the pre-order for the Xoom. I don't think there's going to be much of a difference between the two devices. They'll cost the same, weigh almost the same, will both have stock Android 3.0 on them, have the same screen size etc. They're literally almost identical.
