I have been considering getting a tablet, but don't want to waste my money on something that doesn't work. (After all, I am one of the poor ones out there) After looking through a few forums, it looks like the Coby actually has a strong and active community, their hardware looks decent for the $, and they can be picked up at a local store with a return policy. Now, I am stuck on if I should buy a 7014 now (for about $150), wait a little while for the 7024 (for about $200) to hit the shelves locally, or waiting for the 7025/7026 for who knows how much $ or how long. My primary use for the device will be an eBook reader, occasional gaming (Angry Birds/Bejeweled type games), and to generally play around (hack) with Android. The multitouch screen (which I believe starts with the 7024) might be a nice touch, but not a deal breaker. Any advice is appreciated!!!!! Again, I am a newbie here. My last reading device (Palm) finally died on me after a good 8 years. Also, I am fairly well versed in Linux (been using as my primary OS for the past 5 years).
