Angry Toshiba Folio - Failure with promise?

I purchased a Toshiba Folio on Friday and had a play over the weekend. Overall certainly not overly impressed. My main usage for the tablet would be reading books, blogs and news feeds, but wanted it for kids to play games on occasionally as well.

The Toshiba market place is void of worthwhile apps (other than the Dolphin browser which looks excellent). Struggled to find anything useful for Twitter, Facebook, rss readers, games, etc, etc.

Before I purchased the device I read a few reviews and they weren't great, but I still purchased instead of waiting for an Archos 101 based on the hardware spec's seeming to be better than the Archos (dual core processor and twice the memory?). My hope is that with the decent hardware spec the device will be great with either Android 2.3 or 3.0 when the OS is optimized better for the device.

Am I dreaming here? At the moment I'm seriously considering returning the Folio for a refund due to it not being fit for purpose. I also have an iPad fan sat next to me in the office waxing lyrical about the iPad. He let me have a play on it last week and I must admit the whole experience was much slicker than the Folio with Android. I don't want to buy an iPad, but it seems the only option at the moment?
