    Thats what a lot of people have said. Went in to get a Transformer, came out with a Iconia or Playbook. I've seen a couple on ebay, not sure if Im interested in paying an additional $100 for one.

    Amazon will email me when it's available, but this could take months. Good think it didn't work for the iPad2 either, now I don't want it anymore...LOL

    Yep I feel the same way. I was way excited for Ipad 2 and then when I couldn't get it I got bored. I could go pick one up now, but I really don't care.

    One of these great tablet screens would be so much better than my current screen. Just need a tablet that can interface with proper audio processing and a fusion brain!!

    I wonder if it's easier to the see the Qube (mp3car store) working together with a tablet. No drivers need (it's a HID device like a keyboard or mouse); and it works even when the computer is off/disconnected...

    Use the serial module to connect to outside devices. Connect this to a special bluetooth accessory board to enable wireless communications. Control the Qube completely wirelessly from your jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch. Attach the ethernet accessory board and connect your Qube to the internet! Control it from across the world anywhere you have internet access!
    So yeah, I can see the Qube bringing more options to the table than a fusion brain+windows drivers etc.

    Well I ordered one from Target for 380 bucks shipped, it hasn't shipped of course, but I couldn't pass up such a good deal. I'll let you guys know what I think about it when I get it.

    I tried the transformer and the Acer A500 in a shop. I finally get the Acer. They cost about the same in Hong Kong (you guys are so lucky, Transformer is around $500 here!), and the Acer has 16G more memory. They both feel very fast in loading web pages, switching pages and zooming etc, but is quite slow handling graphic intensive FLASH. Both will play 720P OK too. If you have experience with the Galaxy Tab I can tell you that tegra 2 with Android 3.0 are miles ahead - they are as smooth as an iPad2 now.

    I picked the Acer mainly because it has 2 USB ports on the pad. Asus needs the dock to get USB - which is quite stupid. Now I can connect my DSLR to the PAD and view the JPEGs ! (btw, I think Acer uses a VA panel, I found little difference between it and the Transformer's IPS - both are bright with good contrast and quite reflective)

    I am using 2 strips of Velcros to holod the Acer in my car. I got a Volvo xc90 and there is just enough room in the middle of the dashboard for a 10" PAD (yes, it will block the 2 middle AC vents) The Acer uses 12V charger so it can get its juice directly from the car.

    Now all I need is a RR frontend for Android!

    What's VA panel?

    The Acer looks very cool, but I think it's more expensive here. Does it have a working SD/MicroSD card slot (The XOOM's still isn't working...)? Compass, BT, gyro, gps all good? Do you know what BT profiles it works with?

    Thanks for the review.
