    I am wanting to purchase a Android tablet, primary uses being the following:

    1. Web Browsing (50%)
    2. Email (25%)
    3. Movies/TV Shows (25%)

    These are the main reasons why I am getting a tablet.

    I was hoping someone could shed some light on this. Web browsing is heavy usage, so would like to have a fast load time. Email is done via GMAIL (My work enviroment has GMAIL as their back drop). Movies, generally I load them on via my computer (So the USB feature seems to be cool). I also use Netflix (on my current Ipad).

    I travel quite a bit so having the ability to have a longer battery life is great!

    The Ipad is good, but GMAIL is limited functions on there. Web browsing is limited and movies suck on a 4:3 screen ratio. Hence the reason to move to a new tablet.

    Would like to see what you reccomend: I like the 10" models

    Here are the ones I have deceded on, in no particular order:

    1. Toshiba Thrive
    2. Samsung Galaxy 10.1
    3. Acera Iconia

    I would like to know what you guys think which tablet will fit my usage the best.

    Look frward to your response! Thanks in Advance!

    Welcome. Out of those three, I would recommend the thrive for its full size ports. I own a xoom personally.

    I think the Thrive would serve your needs very nicely. It's quickly becoming very popular around here.
