    Well if it isn’t that Android-based tablet we’ve been hearing about coming from Motor– wait a second, what the hell is this?! It seems someone has completely kanged (cookies if you get the reference) Verizon’s Droid brand by offering a 10-inch Android tablet named the – well – Droid 10. At first glance, Droid-Life almost [...]

    RAM can be upgrade to 512MB for another $56. But still, the plastic back looks awful and lack of capacitive screen puts me right off it. I bet the battery life is terrible too!

    When will manufacturers realize consumers don't want resistive screen tablets? I scan through the stats and if it says resistive screen I'm done. I don't look at anything else.

    I see resistive screen as something that's not too good for a phone, seeing as how it'll be in your pocket. But why is it such a turn off for a tablet?

    It's fine if you use a stylus, but for finger use it's difficult to be precise and I find myself not being able to select and drag items easily. Capacitive is where it's at and there is no going back.

    Resistive screens would most likely be fine in a corporate environment. I've been using a stylus on smartphones now for the last 7 or so years. It's really not that big a deal.

    For the consumer market, however, people don't want to have to carry a stylus. And for the youth of today it's really easy for them to type with their thumbs and now to swype.

    Different markets require different tools...

    It has nothing to do with if the device will be in your pocket or not and everything to do with how reactive the screen is to finger touches.
