Not having a camera in the iPad now looks to be a major oversight.

Not having a camera in the iPad now looks to be a major selling point for the iPad2.

Ya thats apple's marketing strategy in a nutshell, leave a feature out that everyone else already has and then ad it in the next version as a amazing selling point! Notion ink wasn't mentioned, their Adam is certainly worth taking a look at if you are interested in a tablet. Nvidia tegra dual core inside, sd card, HDMI, USB, pixel Qi. Going to be a great tablet and at a great price. Should be available just after CES.

2009 sure, but calling 2010 the year of the netbook is a stretch of the imagination.

Huh? States that Gingerbread has not been released. Was released last month and already ported to a number of devices that did not have native support. Even running it on my HD2. Hmmm....

As for tablet PC's. I love them. Bought 3 FlyTouch 2's for myself and my 2 daughters for XMas, a Cortex A8 8" for myself and just ordered (yesterday) a Cortex 8" 512MB from Pandawill with a capacitive screen. And for a fraction of the price of the mainstream brands. My latest (The 8" capacitive) was only $200. No need to spend large sums of cash to get these awesome devices.

I recently got my Galaxy Tab and it is awsome!

Sadly I haven't seen any of the tabs in person :eek: ... would like to see the Samsung Galaxy Tab though. Mate of mine (trust his judgement in most things tech) has seen the Tab and was quite complementary of it.
