I found the Notion Ink tablet really interesting. Unique mix of Sunlight readable E-ink type display & DualCore Tegra 2 CPU. http://www.slashgear.com/notion-ink-adam-hands-on-at-ces-2011-05123431/ http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/05/notion-ink-adam-hands-on-preview-video/ BTW I have recently tried Ziio tablet in a Creative store. Its was very laggy and had resistive touch screen. Felt like a device from 2005. I dont know why creative bothered to put out this device to market.

I like the slide-out keyboard layout of the Samsung but being right handed would rather have the mouse on the right side. I would also rather have it run Android. Does the Samsung have both slide-out and touch-screen keyboard function as is done in most smartphones with this layout?

I like the way Asus had its tablets dock to a keyboard to form a notebook-alike without requring dual electronics as in the Lenovo U1 Hybrid. But I am curious about the LG tablet which had some buzz.

What's your collective take on pricing? These devices range from a couple of hundred bucks to, what, $700? You can get an excellent laptop for $700... but then again I'm a keyboard bigot. Thoughts?

My guess (based upon similar screen sizes) pricing range will reflect OS: Linux will be lowest cost, Android middle of the road, Windows highest cost.

I wonder when Vizio gets into the market with the first $99 tablet.

This year atleast a 100 companies are launching Android tablets. SO IMO the ASPs of tablets will come down to 200-300$ level by 2012. Even currently some good tablets are selling at 400-500 levels. Checkout the links from my first post.

I wonder how long it will be before Sprint, Verizon, etc. will be offered package deals that include both smartphones/tablets together at a low cost. Seems like a great way to keep the hardware cost factor down and increase network usage revenue.

99$ may be unrealistic IMO(unless vizio is going to rebrand some of the useless chinese tablets). The BOM costs for a decent iPad like tablet is gonna be ~150$.
