    As a current Nook owner, I have to say I'm really wanting this (especially since it has HC). I like the smaller size of the Nook, but for the price, this is very tempting. I liked the Xoom, but the price point had me buying a Nook instead. The tablet scene will really start to pick up. I can't wait to see what the rest of this year will bring for Android HC tablets.

    Now this is a real competitor in the tablets arena. Questions: flash and SD card support right out of the box?

    I would love to see a head to head comparison, but please, not with the iPad or iPad2 "once again". I would rather prefer to start reading/wieving comparisons against Xoom, etc. (I mean, Android vs Android)

    SD card right out of the box, but Flash might just be a simple download from the market. I hear the screen is better than XOOM. Pretty much the XOOM with less ram and less flash memory. Very good price

    This looks like a much better deal, especially if the memory slot is working from the start. I can get cheap SD cards, no big deal.
