Hey- I like the idea of that "why do I buy" thread, but it seems to have grown out of control without any useful responses lately. So, I'd like to throw my "which model do you recommend for me" question out here in the open forum, if that's OK, and hope some of you can steer me in the right direction! Here's the thing- I was originally not sold on the idea of a tablet since I already have a netbook and an Android phone, but when I saw the Nook Color being rooted and running the Android market for $250, I suddenly thought it would be a fun toy to tinker with (I'm a tinkerer by nature). But now I'm realizing that tablets have come down in price, and suddenly for my $250, the nook color seems to lack some fun Android features (GPS, camera, compass, etc). I've starting looking into the Galaxy Tab, but to be honest, there was something that seemed kind of laggy about it in the store. Could have been just the store display model, but it didn't move as smoothly as my Optimus S handset, which surprised me (since the Optimus is a budget handset). Someone mentioned the Viewsonic G-tab, and said they liked it, but now I'm noticing there are so many options I haven't considered! That being said, here's what I'm looking for (in order of priority): Should be able to run flash Have decent battery life Have a FF camera Have a community following (love me those custom roms) Should be comparable in price to Nook Color or original Galaxy Tab (no $700 Xoom, etc, this is just for tinkering!) Video out would be great, but not necessary. Ability to run Netflix (hacked or not) What do you guys think?
