$529 on contract
Well the G-Slate is going to cost you $629 and then you get a $100 rebate which sets you back at $529 on contract. That seems like a fair price. It is cheaper than the Xoom on contract. I still want to see what the off-contract price is. I think this is a fair price for a pure Honeycomb tablet that has 3D technology. It may be gimmicky but it is still a cool feature to have.

Well now the downside to the Tab is that it has Samsung's custom skin while the Xoom and G-Slate don't. I prefer the Tab because I like Samsung and you still get a Honeycomb feel, Samsung's skin is more like small customizations. Also they added some features that Google left out in Honeycomb like re-sizing widgets. It all comes down to personal preference. Also the Tab will come out in Wifi only one and with AT&T's "4G." What I like about the Tab is that it has an SD card slot. I dislike that there is no HDMI port but it will be HDMI capable with a dock.
The downside to the G-Slate is that it doesn't have an SD card slot. You really don't need a SD card slot when you have 32GB of memory so it kind of doesn't matter. Also as of right now there is no Wi-Fi only G-Slate. On the upside it is pure Honeycomb with no skin and will get updates faster. I do like the HDMI port though.
The downside to the Xoom is that it has an SD card slot but no SD card support. THe slot doesn't work and that is partially because in Honeycomb there is no SD card support (or that is what I think). So who knows how it will get support for the SD card. Maybe an update from Google or Moto will have to add a skin that only adds SD card support but still with pure Honeycomb. The upside is HDMI and Pure Honeycomb. Also it has a Wi-Fi only tablet.
It all comes down to personal preference. I hope you select a tablet that best suits you.

So glad I got my Xoom, I can't wait for the next Galaxy Tab or the LG Optimus Pad... plus it I knew it was going to be overpriced, and it doesn't even have SD card support so you are paying a little more for a lot of pointless features... 3d? Hpsa+?( in a network that is soon enough going to die?). Pass indefinitely.
