RIM Shot

Well. here we are in mid-October and still no iPad killers. According to the news, RIMs choice of processor for their 7" tablet didn't pan out. Others are having pricing problems. The amusement continues as Apple continues to supply the world with iPads. And the world continues to find new ways to use it.

Another 7" tablet announced

The announced Huawei S7 tablet has been reviewed by Slashgear. Although it appears to have the standard "competitive fare," their review paints the machine as quite anemic (to what would be desired).

My wife has an iPad; I'm struggling with techno-lust for the 10", Notion Ink Adam being developed in India. It sounds the most promising of the vapor-ware yet announced.

If you really liked Chevys, why would you be posting on a Ford forum?
I'm really confused.

Go on a Chevy forum, and you'll see some threads about competitors to Chevy models, where the discussion will analyze those competing models, compare them to their Chevy equivalent. Try going on a Camaro forum, and see a lot of threads about the Mustang vs Camaro comparison.

Once you've been on a few forums, you won't be confused anymore. You're probably just new at internet forums.

How is the Adam vapor-ware? Might wanna call Gran Turismo 5 vapor-ware too, since it's been pushed back and delayed since 2008.

Yes, the Adam has been getting delayed while they work out issues, but I will say this, IF AND WHEN it does finally come out (current estimates are late December or early January) it will embarrass the iPad. Maybe not in sales, people flock to the Apple name regardless if there is a better product available or not, and there is nothing wrong with that. Apple is a great name brand, and people should continue buying the iPad. But

With the ever evolving Android OS, the various ports, the higher quality screen, and the lower price (comparatively) the Adam will take away some sales from the iPad, maybe not a lot, but some. Notion Ink will have to spend a lot of time, effort, and money advertising it and getting it out to all the possible testers/reviewers to really have a shot at putting a good dent in the iPad sales.

As soon as I see some good reliable reviews of the Adam, I will be ordering one and selling my iPad or giving it to my wife if she wants it. I still love my iPad, but I'm not brand loyal at all, if a better product comes out, I will jump on it for sure.

I was checking out the Galaxy Tab yesterday.

It looks like a nice tablet.
It seems superior to the iPad in more than a few categories.

My only problem with it is that in the American release they`ve done away with it`s phone capabilities.
That sucks.

By the way the carriers have been announced.
US Cellular Verizon TMobile Sprint

Pricing is dependent upon which carrier and contract you want.
Ranging from $300.00 to $800.00

Edit:
One more thing.
Initial reviews I read on a couple Android message boards stated browsing lagged a bit at first until the users posting thought to shut down Flash and then reported it ran pretty smooth.
Maybe Mr.Jobs is right about Flash after all.
:)

Edit Again:
Slashgear has a pretty extensive collection of videos and pics of the Tab in action.

Edit yet again:
TechnoBuffalo does a side by side video comparison of the Tab & iPad.

A friend of mine is getting the Japanese version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab through Docomo in a couple weeks when they arrive in the store. I will try using his and then make a judgement. I have a feeling I'm going to like the features better, but I can't go down to a 7" screen, not after using the iPad's bigger screen. One more reason why I'm waiting for the Notion Ink Adam.

They don't choose what advertisements will be displayed. The advertisements are based off of keywords used in each thread. If we make a thread titled "Hot Asian Girls" we would get advertisements for Asian dating sites.

Besides, what's wrong with advertisements for Android tablets? Afraid of a little competition? :)

Does anyone see themselves using their ipad for taking pictures? The visual makes me chuckle. Honestly, the camera thing is a non-issue for me, considering my blackberry has a decent camera and would be much easier to use in that capacity. Everyone's different of course. The most important differences to me are the system ram( 256 compared to 512), though unless they produce apps that make the ipad slow to a crawl because of insufficient system resources, that's not a deal breaker for me either. Multi-tasking is coming. I do wish there was some way to have a dock attachment that increases storage capacity. Anything like that on the horizon?

I agree, my iPhone4 is a great camera and I always have it....so no I'm not going to be that dork taking pictures with my iPad...... So far the ram seems fine to me as well i really can't tell a big difference between it and the iphone4.
