    Sounds pretty inviting now that I have some more details. Still, the Xoom has a better appearance to me, but I’m still waiting on that mind-blowing tablet and some awesome tablet focused apps that have yet to come.

  • Azeem

    Wow. Now THIS sounds like an Android tablet. As much as I love my nook color, I may have to trade up…assuming that the price for this slab of awesome isn’t in the iPad range. Is it worth the iPad prices? Probably. Will I pay those prices? Probably not.

  • Nathan

    still liking the unnamed toshiba tablet best, true HDMI and USB inputs. and wi-fi only as well.

    but this one isn’t bad, i don’t care about the 3d and if they feel like charging more money becasue of it then screw it, i’m waiting for a wi-fi only one.

    in all honesty, there is no real reason to have an android tablet on contract if you have an android 2.2+ phone. just turn on that mobile hot spot and boom your tablet has internet.

    Nice glad to see Android continues to grow and everyone wants apart of it, does anyone know if this is a contract only or will they also come out with a wifi 1.

    • Nick Gray

      You can always buy any of the products from T-Mobile without signing a contract. The hope is that LG, Samsung, and other manufacturers realize that tablet adoption will be much higher if they produce Wi-Fi only devices.

      all you need to do is look at the iPad to see that consumers WANT a tablet with no data connection.
