It's way over priced at 599. So lately I've really got into the iPad. The apps are really starting to shine and my need for a full OS is becoming less.
Also, qhn, the real underdog, over looked item is the Nook Color. Its spec's are very close to Galaxy Tab, it has very good build quality. IPS screen, can be hacked to function as a tablet. It can run Angry birds once hacked. It only has 2.1 at the moment but B&N is suppose to up it to 2.2 and you get all that for 249.
I bought it to read PDF files because my Kindle isn't good for PDF's but without hacking, I've been playing pandora, listening to podcast, surfing the net.. and yep, using it as an ereader. The size is far better for laying in bed at night to read then the iPad. I'm in love..
It has a few quirks that are easily fixed. Like PDF covers not showing up. Epub shows up just fine.
The main, biggest, almost deal breaker is no ad-hoc support. For those of you who would like to take your jailbroken and rooted phones to use your nook on the go. Not gonna happen.
I almost took it back but decided, I could just take the iPad if I HAD to have internet or just use my bloody phone. But if you got Wifi, I think its a steal compared to Galaxy Tab.
I should have just made a review lol.
Steve, where is the tablet forum
