I love this topic! I was in the club of "What in the world do I need a tablet for?" until recently. I had planned on getting a Nook color for the kids books for my daughter who is at that learning to read stage. I have always found the iPad to be too big, and I'm a huge supporter of Android, so I didn't want to help line Steve Jobs' pockets any more. To be fair, and went and played with the iPad in an Apple store. I gotta tell ya that like someone else mentioned, I didn't hold it for long and just mainly left it on the counter while trying it out. Just too big. I also looked at the new LG Slate, but again...too big. Finally, that new Asus Eee Transformer looked SUPER HOT, but it sold out too quickly and yet again, it's still big, but that keyboard is a huge positive in it's favor.
Yesterday, I went into a T-Mo store to check out the G Tab after reading so much about it. I picked it up and just played around with it. Well, let's just say that after 45 minutes of it being in my hand the entire time, I went and placed my name on the list to get with a sales agent to talk about purchasing one. Lo and behold, they had none in stock as it was selling well in that store for some reason (especially since they dropped the price). Went home, got on line, and saved another $50 by picking up a refurbished unit. It arrives Monday.
I like that it's pocket friendly (I wear a lot of cargo shorts this time of year and I am in Florida after all). I don't have large hands, and this thing fits perfectly. I also saw some of the videos where users mounted them into their dash. That was just hot. I may have to thing about doing something similar to my Kia Soul as it would look really good inside.
Thanks for all the discussion. Between what I'm reading hear, the G Tab I picked up being on T-Mo, Android, and the 7" form factor, I think I made a really good decision. Can't wait for Monday!
