What Android tablet do you have?

Recommended Posts

I am not sure which to get next, I think the Asus Prime may be the prime candidate for me, but I am not sure, I really like the keyboard feature of the transformer though.

A buddy of mine has the original Transformer and loves it but was sad that he managed to crack the plastic back. That aside, I can personally remark how awesome the Transformer family is when you have the keyboard dock. Splendid.

 

I have a Xoom and Kindle Fire.

 

The first is a great dev device and the second is super handy. That Amazon Silk Browser is wicked fast at times. Smokes my Xoom & Galaxy Nexus o_0

 

As far as whats available on the market today, go Prime. No contest.

Hmm, maybe I was a bit quick to say "No Contest." It really depends on what matters most to you. For many its top end speed. That's not really the case for me though, the tablet hardware is definitely a deciding factor for me.

 

When I played with the Prime at Best Buy it was so fast, it flew, yet it felt like it would fly like a Frisbee too. I would likely only get the Prime for myself if I knew I was getting the keyboard.

 

As for the Acer, I played with the a200 last night...I like it too. It didn't seem quite as snappy, but picking it up for a moment it was clear to me which I would rather hold. It had a nice gel coat that made it not slippery and though a bit thick, the trade off is some good I/O devices like full size USB. It also has substantial weight, which I like in my gadgets. The Xoom I have is a tad overweight but I like it. Surprisingly the Kindle Fire is definitely heavier than the Prime.

 

My buddy has the original 10" Iconia. He likes the extra bezel for his thumbs while holding and uses the full size USB quite a bit I believe, but hes always complaining about lagging behind my Xoom on updates ;)

I have the original Transformer and I love it. Honestly though I would wait for a little while with all the full 1080p 1920x1200 or 1920x1080 resolutioned tablets that are out in the coming months because seriously, if you get one now you may feel slighted down the road.

I've got the Transformer Prime and the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The Prime is obviously going to beat out the GTab but Samsung still has a solid product for sure. As far as what to buy? I would wait a couple months for the ASUS T700. It's the beefed up version of the Prime, if you can believe that! The back of the tablet has a plastic stip covering the antennas unlike the Prime's solid metal back. This should improve with GPS and Wi-Fi issues people have been reporting. I personally haven't experienced those problems and really enjoy it. Now only if I could find a dock that isn't double the retail price!!

I have the HTC Evo View 4G. The stylus is a great feature - it's great for taking quick notes in a meeting, or entertaining yourself with Pictionary ;)

I like the 7 inch size for portability, too.

The problem I have with getting a 7inch tablet is I think we will end up seeing close to 6"+ phones by the end of the year.. So I think if I got a tablet it would have to be at least 10".

I know, kind of a dumb reason but I guess it just a matter of opinion. I think if I had to buy a tablet now I would opt for the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
