Looks pretty solid. Better camera would be nice. And maybe a custom touch interface on top of Win7.

I read all the way to the end, waiting for the "And all this can be yours for the low, low price of $999.. oh yeah, and the battery only lasts 37 minutes. And it weighs 5lbs."

I like the sound of it, but I'll remain skeptical until all the details are out.

Unity for Ubuntu 10.10 is the answer to all of this tablet jargon. Simple and lightweight like the iPad interface but not as cluttered and heavy as the Windows interface.

Really. Good stuff.

Dam thats awesome, just the same issues that christopherknapp said give some space for upgrades.
This is the future, they have to increase the HDD and RAM, thats all.

[citation][nom]eddieroolz[/nom]This is more like it, though the specs are on the weak side. Fullscreen 720p YouTube is probably out of the question thanks to GMA 500.[/citation]
I am pretty sure the article said the tablet had a: discrete 1080p HD video accelerator.
 
Now there is a tablet worth buying!
I would wait for the 2 GB version though. Also, I would still want to use an external keyboard. (Why don't they just put little phone style qwerty keyboards on these things?)

Wow, finally a tablet that doesn't seem completely useless. Widescreen, HD video, HDMI out and a decent amount of storage might make this at least somewhat interesting.

Exactly what I need, but add the dock with static keyboard. with BT it can use an external keybard. add RAM to it and 4g in the slot- and keep it under 700 bucks and you will sell a million of them by lunch..

If you read the warranty crap from their website it seems a bit dodgy!! I'll stick to the Viewpad from Viewsonic me thinks
