Well we knew it was coming, a Goolge Tablet running the Android OS. This might be something i would want to get my hands on, considering the Android device will be much more customizable than the iPad. As below, working with the Android Tablet in the cloud is much easier, which would make life easier, never bound to a usb cable and iTunes.
A Google tablet could be the only tablet capable of actually challenging the iPad, avoiding the iPod whitewash in which Apple thrashed everyone, even Sony. It would also have some advantages. Google’s services, for one. Apple still doesn’t get the cloud, and getting data on and off the iPad is still largely done over a USB cable. Android is also the only other real player in apps with the Android Marketplace. It is way behind the iTunes App Store in numbers, but is at least in second place.
Also watch out for the HP Slate which had more connectors, more ports, and more options than the iPad. The Slate will run Windows 7 with a custom user interface. Click here for the spec comparison.
