So that people will be even more time on facebook as they already are. Really NOT looking forward for that.
Great review, and a great tablet.

I'm just wondering if the watch works when you are out of the phones range or dose it need a connection all the time to show you the time? But otherwise I'd go for the Pebble.
Name: Vid (comes form Latin Vitus)
I live in Ljubljana, Slovenia (Europe) :)
I'm studying architecture (two years to go for the masters) and working in a architectural studio
My first and current android phone: HTC desire HD
my current tablet: Asus Transformer (waiting for the new transformer prime 700)
For me the androidandme has the best interface, all the news, great writers and a great community.
I'm a technology and computer freak. Most of all I enjoy travelling and discovering new places.

Yes, that's always the problem. Waiting for something a few months and then you wont to buy it, but then you see a better one. Same here.
But for me it's also the keyboard and the extra battery power that got me.
the 300 has an IPS display and the prime has an IPS+ panel. so they saved a bit money.
No, the transformer Prime TF700T has an resolution of 1920x1200. The transformer 300 has an 1280x800 res, the same as the current Prime, but a bit scaled down version of it.
I was on the waiting list for the Prime, but then I read about the upcoming 700, so I cancelled my order. And I didn't think that the waiting would feel so long. So now I'm not settling for something less. The HD display,.... Can't wait.
I think that the glasses could be a useful gadget in professional use and in some circumstances for all people as well, but as you put it in the article, I personally wouldn't like to have this glasses on the whole day and all the electronic sending and receiving next to my head all day long. I like to turn off my smartphone form time to time so that nothing bothers me and like to leave it on my desk when I'm home. But I'm also not the kind of person who checks in in every store or coffee shop, I like to share some things with the people that are actually around me at that moment. But we all are different.
And don't get me wrong, I think this is a great peace of technology, Its size and performance, but I just wouldn't like to use it every day.
That's the beauty of Android phones, you can get it in every size and with every specifications you wont.
But some do not understand the meaning of free choice.
I was playing with the samsung galaxy note in a store a few days ago and it was amazing. And everyone should try it out before you say it's to big. And if you do not like it there are still 100 of other phones that could be for you. :)
great. I just hope we don't have to wait to long for the second upgrade.
That's the thing that also made Android great ( besides its performance,...). The point is that you as a costumer have a choice what you wont to pick, the design of the device, the brand and the UI. For my part it is a plus, why should all devices look the same and have the same interface. I personally picked my first android phone also because of its UI. If you have 10 different devices with the same specs than there should be some difference between them.
But I think that on the device you should have a option to change it to the default android UI. Not that you have to root it, to do so.
They are on the way to partly replace the PCs, but for real I think it's a long way to go. Sure android tablets do replace the PCs for the small everyday work like surfing the web, emails,... but for me the important part are powerful programs (PS, AutoCad, 3dsMax,...) and for that the devices are not powerful enough and probably won't be for some time.
But I am also replacing my laptop with and android tablet, because it's lighter, smaller and has everything on it for the little things I have to do on the way. But it can't replace my desktop for sure. Maybe some day.
I personaly think that the piracy doesn't effect the real profit of good companyes, if I like an app I buy it and other I do not use. And I think that "piracy" does a great job for jung people, who with programs (PhShop,.........) can learn to use them and when you use them in the future in your proffesion, you have to buy them. So the companyes has a benefit from it, they let you use it when you study and then have a dependent costumer. (and the student versions do not eaven get close to the profesional)
the music industry just hasn't the right aprouch to the changes made by the internet, thay have to realise that no one is prepered to pay if they produce crappy music. I buy music but just the songs I like. Why should you be forced to by a whole album, if just one song is great?
A grat video from TED:
HTC does nice phones, with their great materials and the screen really going all over the front without the waste of space. I like it. And the sence gives the aditional tuch to it. (for me) But I really don't know why they didn't go for the tablet market a bit more. They could do a great job there. (the Flyer wasn't my favorite thou)
Realy cool, Asus is making great products this days. But the problem is to decide wich one to pick.
Ok, when I bought my phone, I knew that when I use google they will store this info,... but this is a bit to much for me, why do they want my call history,... OK I'm rooting my phone and not quit shure what I will use for the mail but with this agremant thay have gone to far. PS: In Europe most of this things that google wonts to do are not eaven legal.
In my eyes the staitmant "don't be evil" just doesn't do it any more.
Don't get me wrong I love useing google serices and love android, but I just do not like someone knowing more about me than my self.
The prices for all electronic goods are € = $. And becouse I'm from Europe I do not like it, but I guess for you it's briliant. For me it is a good price, but I'm still weating for the new Transformer P to hit the marcets.
Not in my country .:(
