    hey folks,

    glad to find this site. been obsessed with my moto droid running insanely clean oc at 1.2ghz orange nightmare. my wife calls it an a problem!

    i want to purchase a tablet, hoping to get the information i need to purchase. i see none run 2.2 because of google requires 3g to identify? will tablets ever get 2.2? looking for opinions as to what tablets people are excited about. i have read good and bad about the augen gentouch. i'm looking to spend around $250 what is my best bet as far as hacking, theming and just messing around? thanks, glad to be apart of the commuinty.

    This must be the CT thread. I'm just west of Hartford and like gmurphy have had tons of fun with my moto-Droid since last November when I got it.

    Good chance my first tablet purchase won't be for me though. My mother in law turns 80 this fall and the PC we got her 4 years ago has seen better days. She basically uses it for some solitaire, email and browsing the web on her dial up connection so this might be a good alternative. We've contacted the cable company ISP in her area and they are doing a study to see if getting high speed net access to her is feasible or not. So far the first set of studies looks promising. With a mid October time-frame things are looking on track for this.

    It will be interesting to see if these tablets get rooted and whether or not their bootloaders will be locked down.
