    Are there any tablets available right now or any coming out in the future with phone and text capabilities? And I don't mean Skype/voip. Like, where you could put your sim card in it and use as a phone if you wish?

    Some Samsung Galaxy Tabs have that feature: The P1000, the Tab 8.9, and the Tab 10.1 4G

    A Chinese tablet can do, which named Dropad A9N, I've read a review of the device, but it seems that no one would like to make a phone call while holding the thing

    Where did you see the review for this tablet? Is it a comprehensive review?
    I am interested to see a review or user who can tell me that they actually have a version of this tablet that have a working GPS.
    I sell this tablet too under the brand Gen-E and I know its GPS actually work but every seller out there mentions that it has GPS ......."frown"

    Yes, this tablet can make GSM phone call but only in handsfree mode.

    BUMP!!!

    the samsung galaxy note is technically a phone with a 5.3" screen. unfortunately, it looks like it will only be released for at&t.

    does anyone know why most of the rest of the world can use their tables like a phone, but nothing in the us?

    apparently some of these tablets have the hardware to be used as a phone but NONE of the cell providers in the us offer a voice plan for their tablets, wtf is that all about?!?

    there's also the asus padphone coming out...
