1. I hope the MeMo isn't canned.
2. I hope this is still a quad-core of some sort.
3. If 2 is correct, I will buy (not WOULD, but WILL)... at least two...

These tablets you have... Are they the Archos 70 Internet Tablet? or is it the G9?
The Archos tablets for sale at the end of 2010 were not really tablets, they were craplets. They were good for basic web browsing and e-reading, light games... mostly fluff. Look at the G9 tablets. Those were Archos' first real effort at a tablet, and they were quite awesome. Top of the line, iPad beaters? No. But for the price they are the best thing out there, and I anticipate the G10 being the same. If I hadn't purchased an Iconia tab a month before the G9 tablets were released, I would have bought one.
All the downvotes on your comments should tell you that you're doing something wrong, but instead, you decide to call us 'pre-teens.' Thank you for making it unnecessary to shoot any insults back because you take care of that yourself.
As I said before, the only devices that have a retina display are Apple devices because "RETINA" IS MARKETING FLUFF, NOT A DEFINED RESOLUTION OR PIXEL DENSITY. In fact, my earlier statement that it's Apple's word for a pixel density over 200 is incorrect. I actually meant 300, but even that is incorrect -- the New iPad only has a pixel density of 264 PPI. This proves even further that it's a "Retina" display if Apple feels like calling it a Retina display, not because it meets a certain criteria.
Retina is Apple marketing. Call it HD, call it High-res, but the only tablet with a Retina display is the iPad and it's the only tablet that will ever have one because APPLE MADE IT UP. It's the word they use for pixel density over 200.
Their G9 tablets had full Android Market functionality.
Even after I log in to my proper A&M account, I would still buy one. Thing looks amazing. Can't wait to see how it comes out. They need to get this to the proper retail channels. Here's hoping they get a high res display too.
RIGHT> Everybody should just do exactly as you think is best.
Four + carriers pushing the same exact thing with different hardware = nearly pointless. Carrier modifications to Android are here to stay, and with good reason! They need to protect the brand. I do believe all bootloaders SHOULD be unlockable so those in the know can get what they want, but the vast majority of customers DON'T CARE.
I agree with all PREMIUM phones being supported for 2 years minimum. I agree that 50 different Android models is excessive. I just don't agree with the "stock Android" hype. I run stock Android because I like it, and that's why I bought a nexus, but many people don't care or actually prefer the carrier skins.
To all who say Acer should price this below the Prime:
I think you're all wet.
Yes, chances are the Asus will feel a little sturdier in the hand. But the Acer has a MUCH higher-resolution screen. For myself, personally, the screen is the biggest drawback of my A500. I wish I had gotten the original Transformer instead of this A500, BUT in round 2 Acer's screen should blow the doors off the Transformer Prime.
For this reason alone I would be willing to pay more for the Acer than the Asus. In any case, I don't see why it should cost LESS.
I bet it took you like 15 minutes to type that. Ape.
The unlocked GSM version doesn't even work on AT&T's real 4G --LTE. And how could it work on Sprint's 4G when Sprint is CDMA? It won't even work on Sprint's network at all, let alone their 4G network.
Right, because the pace of cell phone development has really slowed down over the last little while.
Hahahaha... Good one. You buy a phone now, it will be more obsolete in two years than your desire is. And you say you'll wait til Feb/March for galaxy3... I sure hope you live in Europe, or else that's not happening. Galaxy SII came to the US in OCTOBER. Europe will probably get the galaxy SIII sometime between march-may. US will see it at the end of the year, likely.
How's it smell in there? Clearly you've got your head up your a$$.
What does this have to do with Nexus S-ers? The GSM Nexus S received its official OTA update to Ice Cream Sandwich beginning the day after the VZW Gnex was released. The Nexus S 4G got its kernel source the next day and developers have already cooked up stable builds at daily driver levels -- builds that have everything working, including 4G, wifi, bluetooth, MMS, cameras, panoramic shooting, tap to share, everything.
That's the beauty of a Nexus phone... It does not matter one bit whether Samsung wants to support the update or not, cuz the update comes from GOOGLE.
I would love to +1 your comment a million times. Well said.
I felt that way with my Nexus S 4G, but now that the source is out, some of these 'Alpha' roms are more than stable enough for daily use, and ICS just checks all the boxes for me. It's an incredible upgrade.
Also, CM's mods are more than welcome on ICS, and they are still paving the way with the best features. They even have a T9 dialer in their CM9 Kang roms, and developer aosp has incorporated it into his own rom, along with the notification power widgets and other awesome features.
It's just awesome, can't get that across well enough. Every high-end phone sold in 2010 should get the ICS update IMO.
This place is awesome. Slim chance, but it's better than nothing! AndroidandMe Rocks.
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!! Ever since my Iconia tab got run over, I've been missing my tablet terribly. A new one would be awesome!!
