    I fear - I am way out of my league as I read posts related to choice & purchase... in other words I need help!!!!

    My personal ereader/tablet preference is as follows:

    read ebooks and color pdf files
    WIFI and/or 3g
    lastest version of Android.
    Expandable memory sdhc chip
    Front and rear facing cameras
    Ear phone & microphone Jacks
    oh, why not, GPS?

    Is there anything more important that I left out?

    Any suggestions about Model/make
    AND
    I am leaning towards Samsung & was pleased to find the ban on Sales lifted in Europe, as I will be in Madrid, Tenerfie, Barcelona.. can anyone suggest a good place to purchase?

    HATS OFF TO ALL OF YOU. Thanks in advance!

    Another option is the transformer which definitely fits all of those requirements.

    thanks so much, just read the reviews and comparisons and it looks like not only great value, but great performance.
    Hope it is available in Spain!

    You need to understand how you will use the device to know what features are "missing". Some good things to consider might be HDMI i/f, bluetooth, full size USB, USB hosting...

    hmmmm, my list is short
    portability for vacationing (to have books to read, video calling, IM, SMS)
    for color reference books in pdf format
    and occasional Couch potato surfing when husband is watching the news!

    Bluetooth I understand .. great suggestion.
    had to look up what a "full size" USB was. OMG there was even one that could fold to put in your pocket!

    I think HDMI is way way out of my league!!! Never imagined the tab could be so productive!

    I remain in awe with hopes of learning more.
    But I think I need to go back to my original thoughts and that is to buy a reader with wifi and front back camera in order to get off the ground.

    again thanks for the input.
