This is my first post. Been lurking for a few days and thinking of taking the Android tablet plunge. I am typing this on a first gen iPad, which I've owned since the first Saturday the first iPads hit the stores. I am a Windows user on the desktop and for software development. So I am thinking of a good first Android tablet. Don't want to start too low or too high. Considering learning Android software development. Already MS .NET dev at work for many years now. Simply don't want to buy a Mac to join the Apple dev club, nor do I care learn Objective C. At least Android lets me code in Java. That said I'm looking for a decent stable tablet with decent battery life and relatively light weight. Don't know whether to go with the top brands like Samsung. I did briefly have an Archos tablet last year, but returned it, as the touch screen was a joke. I heard the Android tablets don't quite match Apple's touch screen experience. I can forgo that for the freedom from Apple restrictiveness. Do let recommendations begin!
