    it would make sense to try and derail the Kindle Fire shortly before it's release. Now, how many people are waiting in the wings to decide which new e-reader to buy I really don't know.

    However they may sway a few people away with some nice hardware or competitive pricing. I just think many will prefer the full integration of the amazon store with the fire.

    You can put me squarely in the "looking" category. But I knew this would be coming out and have been waiting for it. :)

    Interested as well to see what shows up on Monday myself. Even more interested in the fact that if I buy a $300 computer at Best Buy I can get a 32gb Touchpad for $150.

    Now that's really tempting since android has/is being ported to that tablet.

    Currently there are wifi and SOD (sleep of death) issues with the TP, but ICS is in the works, possibly around Jan/Feb of next year. Still it's quite usable and there are fixes to help with the issues at the expense of a little battery life.

    You can find the TP on Amazon for about $250 and then there's this deal: TigerDirect.com: HP TouchPads on Friday.

    Reports out now are saying the Nook tablet will be $250 and has some pretty good specs (dual core, 1GB RAM, otherwise same as Nook Color). The Nook color is going to drop to $200.

    Link to Gizmodo article about the Nook Tablet:
    New Nook Specs Leak: Faster, Lighter, Dual-Core Media Monster
    I guess this forum should change to Nook Color/Tablet or maybe the Nook Tablet needs its own forum...
