That tablet market is moving fast!
So I've been doing my research, and trying to keep up with what's current news and what's old news.
I'm looking for a tablet that I can use to;
1) read ebooks, and,
2) watch high quality .avi files.
(Is it possible to not have to convert 400MB-4GB files down in size? /me lazy.).
$250 - $400USD (shipped to Australia).
It would be nice to have the option to tether it to my phone for internet, but not essential. Otherwise happy with wireless-only versions.
Also happy to root/hack etc to get things working.
So let me know if I've got this right:
= awesome/perfect. But out of price range
= pretty much on the money. But concerned about low RAM, and unable to upgrade much further. (Now this isn't a problem if it can happily play my avi files as they are, but slightly concerned that if I start using higher quality / larger files, the device/software won't keep up??). Understand that stocks are low, but I can wait a bit.
= looking almost too good to be true. Waiting to hear more user reviews? Amazon have a hiccup at the moment (BJ's doesn't take international orders and have to call and check per product with TigerDirect).
Notion Ink Adam
= looks great. But when will it happen? And will it live up to the hype. lol.
= gtablet too big for handbag. ViewPad is 600MHz (pfft!).
I've looked at a bunch more, but most are either <1GHz, <512MB, resistive screen etc.
If all I wanted was to read books, than all would be good, but throwing in the desire to watch movies without having to scale them down ups my requirements. Is this right?
