    Hi All,

    I will be fortunate in March/April of 2011 to be able to receive a great bonus/gift from my company worth up to $1250. I was initially leaning towards getting a fully decked out iPad and was hoping the rumored version 2 would be out then.

    But I would really prefer to get an Android Tablet if I could and would like to start monitoring whats coming up in new and amazing Tablets. For me - bigger, faster, sharper is all the better (heck, its not my money). The iPad is pretty spectacular so I am really trying to find one that really competes with the iPad.

    So I am curious where the best place to go to watch news on upcoming tablet releases.

    On a related note - are you familiar with an Android Tablet that really kicks @$$ and has a large screen like an iPad?

    Thanks

    Is this tab going to support the android market? They refer to applib on the web site.

    Archos typically supports their own market application. Legal access to the Android market has traditionally required that the device function as a cell phone... something that tablets don't do. With the release of all of these new mainstream tablets I'm guessing that Google is going to change this policy to better support tablets.
