I agree. If I'm going to drop 500 bones (which I have) I'm gonna get a great tablet with a form factor that sets it a part.
Oh, and pricing is a big deal too. Apple's stupid overpriced products are not a realistic starting point.
I'm not sure the thinnest is the thing people really want. We are too busy comparing sizes with Apple we forget all the advantages we have. I wish manufacturers would stop focusing on emulating Apple and actually innovate. So far as I can tell, ASUS is the only company that has taken this to heart and they suffer for distribution issues. Innovation is more than playing the size game with Apple and each other and more to do with trying to fill a need in the market. Tablets as a replacement for the laptop is just scratching the surface.
I'm in for the TF Prime. So waiting for the MeMo so I have the best of all worlds. It would be nice to have my own tablet instead of sharing with the wife.
Love to see the ecosystem grow but Google needs to stay on their toes. Tech can change so very quickly.
I love this concept, but the issue isn't how awesome the concept but rather how universal the availability of the phone on different carriers. I love the specs and reviews of the Transformer Prime, but availability is crap. Make a great device AND making it available is the key.
My buddy and I had a race to see who could send a text via dictation fastest. He had the iPhone 4s and I had the Samsung Epic 4G (my phone is already almost 2 years old) and I beat him hands down. Siri is a gimmic. It isn't all that great and not a selling point to me. Flashy isn't always the best and this just proves it.
Awesome! HTC makes some great devices!
What I am wondering is what happened to all the phones with sliding qwerty keyboards. Don't get me wrong, I love all the specs and stuff, but I'm very interested in form and function. I find Android's strength is in its diversity in form factors. Crapberry, iP0ne and WP7 all lack in these areas.
The form factor is meh at best. The specs have a lot to be desired of. You may as well get a Kindle Fire and enjoy a large display for a lower cost.
This could be a good or a bad thing. Big Red has a tendency to being on the cutting edge. The problem is is it the cutting edge of good or bad for the consumer. Here's hoping it is for the better, not the worse.
Because I need a processor that is smooth and not a power hog!
Google Android has made my life so much easier as a student and professional. Having a dual core device would make it even better!
