Finally something better than a crappy netbook and Ifad.

SD card slot

Front camera

Rear camera

Android

I have been looking for something to go on the internet whilst on the sofa or when just chilling, and netbooks have proven to be a little awkward and annoying. This ticks all the boxes.

What does everyone think?

It's a bit small if you ask me.

However I have an android phone and that is excellent. If I can get a look at one and see how usable it is then I might be interested, however my experience with Netbooks has been that anything under a 10" screen is simply no good for browsing a vast majority of websites.

Inches isn't everything, but display resolution is and from what I can see it's 800x480, the iPad on the other hand is 1024x768. As I say on Netbooks I have had anything 800 or lower is rubbish for browsing the web. You can handle it on a phone as, well it's a phone and does you when you are out and about, but if I'm buying one of these it will be for a laptop replacement so it needs to be capable of a decent browser experience.

I shall reserve full judgement until I actually see one in action.

One other thing is despite Android being good, one thing it is poor at is seamless integration. I have had a number of problems with syncing stuff and getting stuff to work, yes it is a cliché but Apple stuff does tend to "just work".

It needs to be cheaper than the equivalent iPad for me. It has it's plus points however so we shall see.

It looks okay but it's a bit funny to hear the Apple haters 'diss' the iPad but then advocate an iPad rip-off as something cool.

Early Android demos showed phones that looked like Blackberries running a fairy dull phone OS. It was only when the iPhone came out that they went all out to copy the concept.

I'm not a fanboy but technology would be quite rubbish if the market didn't have Apple to copy again and again.

Apple had quite a head start when the iPhone came out. It took a good while before the likes of the HTC Desire came along and matched it. I don't think the iPad will enjoy quite the same head start.

It seems nice, but I can't help thinking this is completely unnecessary and people are trying to justify it to themselves.

Can people really not go 5 minutes without access to the web? so that they absolutely must have something that's easy to use on the sofa?

Reminds me of that kids film, incredibles or whatever, where everyone is obese and on motorized scooters with a screen permanently in front of their faces.
