    Default Tablet recommendations

    So I'm in the market for a tablet and would love to hear from anyone who currently owns a tablet. So far the iPad 1 and 2 look amazing but the only thing I hate about the iPad is every other problem I have with Apple products....ITUNES!!!!!! So please let me know how much you like or dislike your tablet.

    I love my iPad and I use it everyday. I don't use it to it's full capacity as I usually just surf the web and use a few apps. One of the bad things about the iPad is that it doesn't do flash which can be irritating.

    You might want to check out the link for an overview of the tablets out there now.

    Thanks for your review. I've already checked out CNET and used all of the products hands on but nothing's better than hearing it from people who actually use it daily. I've been very impressed with the Xoom but the price and the Verizon exclusivity is a major drawback.

    I love my iPad, but the flash thing is a pain in the arse. Great for football too as you can get the Sunday Ticket app and stream all the football games to it...of course no football this year, so whatever.

    I am wondering the same thing. I have Verizon and was thinking about a Galaxy but I really like the i-pad. Like you I have tried them all but cannot make up my mind. I also would like to use it for reading books.

    I guess it comes down to what do you want to do with it..

    In January, I purchased the Viewsonic gTablet, which is a wi-fi only (so no carrier!!) Android tablet. I did try out the custom Viewsonic interface into Android, and it was sluggish and I didn't like it. After about 30 minutes browsing XDA, I determined that I was ready to flash it and load what I wanted on it.

    After about 15 minutes, I had replaced the Viewsonic ROM with the VEGAN-TAB BETA 5.1.1 ROM and LOVE IT. I have since flashed to VEGAN GINGERBREAD EXPERIMENTAL ROM, and it may very well be my day to day ROM.

    I have some some minor issues with Google Market and the SI for Tablet apps since moving to Gingerbread, but it isn't a deal breaker for me.

    If you look at reviews for the gtablet, pay little attention to the viewing angles, unless you want to see you tablet from a ways away, or want to have more than one person looking at it a time.

    I use my gtablet primarily for Nook, web, e-mail, and Angry Birds, and have no problem with the viewing angles. The accessories are tough to find, but XDA does have someone bringing them in all the time.

    I paid $379 for mine at Sears.

    btw, it is a Tegra2 Tablet. Same as the Malata zpad.

    Thanks No One. This was the kind of review I was looking for. I've seen so many non-brand tablets but I didn't want to buy a product that couldn't be flash and was stuck with Andriod 1.5. Is the Tegra 2 duo core?

    Yep. Dual Core 1.0 Ghz in this model. However, I think Honeycomb (when ported over) will be able to take better advantage of SMP.

    If this device uses Honeycomb anywhere close to the Motorola Xoom then I'm going to dance naked in the streets.

    Well, I don't know if Viewsonic will release a new ROM after Honeycomb's AOSP dump is complete. However, I am confident that the devs at XDA will be on it the second Google releases the source code.
