Yet nothing in that android flood excites me. Galaxy tab is far too expensive, Archos 101 and 70 are missing features and have a few bugs and most of the rest are cheap tat. HP using windows 7 automatically puts me off that too leaving only the Playbook. A few other Android tabs sound promising but I'm avoiding them, like android phones unless they use later than 2.2 and if they do use 2.2 Im not wanting to be at a carrier or manufacturer's mercy waiting over a year for an update. Look at Sony's X10. It was promised 2.1 and while some sort of rollout was attempted, it was broken and pulled. Basically they're still on 1.6 and now even the promised 2.2 is looking long in the tooth by the time they get round to it. Sony screwed X10 owners worse than any other company but its repeated across the android range. Unless it ships with 2.2 or later I wouldn't recommend touching it nor consider it a worthy attempt as its imcomplete.
