    I have a 500 dollar budget. I don't want a ipad either. It would be great if it is 10 inches. So whats the best option for the price? Thanks

    Had 3 g tablets. All of them broke within 2 days. I am looking at the Iconia a500 and the galaxy tab 10.1

    For that budget
    Acer Iconia a500
    Asus Transformer T101
    Viewsonic Gtablet
    Advent Vega

    Everything else is utter trash' including these strange unnamed tablets with no native Google market support. Intact I would get only those tablets on any budget ATM.

    Unless you absoultelu must have 3D recording, then the optimistic 3D pad/Gslate.
    Owning an iconia, having extensively used a Gslate and A moto zoom, I'd stay sstick with those tablets.

    It also has no native Google apps support
    Doesn't run honeycomb and is a terrible ipad. (Eww) knock off. Much safer to pick up a transformer which is much better and costs 5 bucks more coming from a reputable manu with better specs.

    Might possibly cost more than $500 or will be tied to a carrier or both. Also tthey have summer time release dates so if you're willing to wait that long....

    For the price, and for a 10" Tablet, ATM IMHO the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer can't be beat. It has the Tegra 2, 2 good quality cameras, GPS, and its grouped in with the best-in-class in terms of battery life. The works. The IPS screen is a big plus over other tablets as well. I would definitely buy it if I wasn't waiting for the Galaxy Tab 8.9 (10" is too big for my tastes). I've liked all the GTabs, and the 10.1 looks nice, but they simply can't beat the Transformer price-wise. I haven't seen a single 10" tablet with similar specs even come close to the Transformer regarding price. The optional keyboard dock is also nice for those who want something like that - and the boost to battery life isn't a pain either (16hrs total).

    BTW, having 3 GTabs total and having them all break; nevermind within 2 days of each purchase; is an incredible coincidence. Tablets, including GTabs, don't just break that quickly. Likely some kind of shipping error (if you bought through an online store) or some other issue based on circumstance...just in case, imho, maybe watch out for problems or circumstances like that when you purchase your next tablet.
