Tablets are one of the anticipated products in CES 2011 long before. These tablets are somewhat build around the iPad. I was hoping there would be more features such as HDMI, SD support. The Samsung tablet with sliding keyboard is one of the many which catches my eyes although it looks really similar to OQO which was launched 5 years ago. WeTab is interesting to me simply because it has different OS. I am very interested in knowing which OS will become the most popular OS for tablet or mobile device 3-5 years from now.

CES is not the right place to showcase the best technology. Apple has its own show and I wish most firms note that you do not get out the word in a crowded week like CES. Get your own time and run the show your own way

I don't know about the price, but Vizio was talking at CES about a mid-2011 launch of the tablet they were showing.

I've now also had a look at Research in Motion's PlayBack tablet, which has a 7-inch screen and will be available in 16-, 32- and 64-GB. I was told it will be available sometime in the first quarter. Playback was very cool and seems elegant, but with so many out there (and so many specs of Plaback and some others still under wraps that it's kind of hard to compare to the others.) On price, I think there are wide differences at this time, but the low end is pretty low. The Ziio from Creative Labs is listed at $270, and I've seen some reports that it is being sold as low as $250. Another company showing some interesting tablets here is Huawei... I can't keep up.

I know a few of those too, but the bottom line is Not everyone is happy with what they have, they always thing the grass is greener etc; however XP was still MS's best program bar none, not even 7 comes close.. so when you find a winner stick with it. L)

have you ever tried to run some windows apps on Android system, its a no no.. certain areas Android is fine, but not if you want to use it for business and utilize any major programs like fileMaker pro, adobe acrobat, or some others. Android just doesn't cut it.
