    After some digging, Entourage has been ignoring requests for kernel source. This is currently another GPL violating device. They have even censored discussion of the GPL on their official forums: http://www.google.ca/search?q=entou...s=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

    And I find it hard to trust any manufacturers who can't release their source code, because it means they don't care about software.

    For a $200 device, it's not bad. But for $500, this is futility. This is a complicated enough device that would probably mean that it's important to have that sort of thing.

    I'm not sure what I think about dual ebook/tabet devices...
    This one looks like a cheap (a bit ugly) toy...

    Does come in two colors red or black. On the company site you have choices for color at a price point. I thought about and it and the whole idea to have a tablet was to have something thin and weigh less.

    Wacom enabled devices are a big selling point. Android just does not have good software for those types of pressure sensitive devices yet.

    The photos may be deceiving, but this looks like a fairly thick, heavy and rather not-good-looking unit. Looks like a protopype, actually. The functionality is quite impressive though. I imagine it feelimg as think and heavy as a laptop, but with a much more immediate user interface. I particularly like the quality and speed of the stylus input (many tablets suffer from poor handwriting input). I'd like to get my hands on one to get a better idea. One word of advice to this product's designers, though: this machine has to get way, way thinner to be attractive to the professional crowd.
