    I have an option from work to buy a tablet tax-free, however it has to be in the next week, and I have a limited choice. Unfortunately the Samsung Tab 10.1 is not on the list, otherwise I wouldn't even be contemplating.

    1) LG Optimus Pad
    Pros:
    Dual Core
    Honeycomb

    Cons:
    Expensive!

    2) HTC Flyer
    Pros:
    Stylus
    HTC Sense

    Cons:
    Android 2.2
    Small
    Single Core

    3) Samsung Galaxy Tab (1)
    Pros:
    ?
    Cons:
    Android 2.2
    Single core

    4) iPad2 32GB Wifi&3G -
    Pros:
    UI
    Dual Core
    Size

    Cons:
    iTunes
    Apple-locked-in-ness
    lack of expansion


    The LG is just so expensive! I can't believe it - there is a 40% premium over the iPad2. It is a tough pill to swallow, but I think I will have to. :( Or is it worth getting an iPad and hacking it?
    My main concern on Flyer is that the new apps which will come out this year wont work on it. :(

    No Asus Transformer love? Otherwise I'd look at the LG optimus. Check the different online reviews before you make the leap though. All tablets have that one 'con' point; its up to you to see what you can live with

    One of the guys at work has the transformer, it is nice! Pity the screen is reflective though. Also it is not available, but I could just go buy one - they are comparitively cheap!
