Anywho, Im not saying that this tablet has to be cheap, but somewhere in the neighborhood of the GTab 10.1. I own the tab 10.1 and love it. I really like the Touchwhiz interface. From the review, HTC sense doesnt seem as good IMO( Dont really like the weird sized weather widget/clock) . But its just Sense 1.0 for tablet, so I am sure it will get better.
    Thats just my 2cents
    I think you're spot on...I don't need another data plan with AT&T...I would however buy a wifi version today!

    So is the HDMI like the HDMI port on the Samsung Infuse Smartphone?

    So, it doesn't have WiFi on it?

    I checked out this tablet at the AT&T store today and was quite impressed -- but it's simply not going to sell at this price especially now that the Kindle has been announced at $199 and the HTC Flyer was reduced to $299. Granted this is a high end tablet and so I don't expect it to be $199 -- but it really should be no more than $649 *without* a contract and maybe $499 with one.

    These days, if you price your tablet the same as Apple prices the iPad, or in this case price it even higher -- then almost everyone is going to choose the iPad. Making it worse, the iPad 3 is on the horizon and it will likely have a retina display and possibly HSPA+ if not LTE as well.

    I expect the price of the Jetstream to plummet by the holidays--or it will simply be pulled off the market entirely.

    If you've been waiting to buy this device, you might go back into the store. I did that yesterday, and walked out with one.

    Here's what I got:
    MSRP now reduced to $599.99 (with digital pen thrown in)
    $150 reduction from store manager
    $50 gift card
    Net price: ~$400 depending upon how you value the AT&T gift card (has to be used on AT&T accessories)

    It's quite obvious that AT&T now realizes that it blundered in the initial pricing and is trying to move the devices out the door.

    How in the world did you get the $150 discount from the store manager? Did you get into a negotiation with them? That is awesome, and would love to try that same tactic.

    I told him that I was about to order a Lenovo Thinkpad, which could be purchased from Abe's of Maine for $412 with no taxes and free shipping. I'd written down the Lenovo cost on the left side of a sheet of paper and totalled the cost of the Jetstream (net of the AT&T gift card and state taxes) on the right side. When I showed the two side-by-side to him, it was obvious that he'd have to come down by at least $150 to be even close to the Lenovo's cost.

    I admitted to him that I preferred to have the Jetstream, in part because I wanted the 4G cell reception; but, I also told him that the price discrepancy was too great. He asked me if a one-time credit of $150 to my cellphone account would get me there, and I said "yes."

    I have no idea whether his peers can follow suit. Frankly, I was amazed.

    I should also mention that I have a small business account; but it only has two lines. I have no idea whether the small business aspect had anything to do with it.

    By the way, so far, so good with the Jetstream. I really love it. Now, if we can just get it rooted!

    It could be too late to answer your question but yes, I tried the MHL to HDMI bought from eBay for $7.59 including shipping from HK, try search for "Male MHL Micro USB to HDMI Adapter Cable for Samsung Galaxy S 2 i9100 HTC". You have to wait 2 weeks but the result is great. My children actually went up to my HDTV and tried to swipe the screen as if it were a touchscreen.
