    Android 2.2 Samsung S5PV210 ARM CortexTM A8 MID Tablet PC Support Web Flash 3G HDMI

    I am considering all these options and would like your opinion as to which one to buy? If they support the official android market? Are they upgradable to 2.3 or 3.o if they become available? etc.

    These would be my first tablet so I need help with this. I would appreciate any comment and help. Thanks!

    Of those choices, I would select the one from a major vendor. Any would be good, but I don't think any provide a guarantee for Honeycomb.

    ok! All use the Samsung S5PV210 except the Freescale. I want to know which one you think would be the most stable tablet in terms of browsing, video playback (including 1080p), updating capabilities, etc.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Samsung is supposed to support 1080p in theory, but I heard the functionality does not work right now because of firmware issues.

    In brief, none of the tablets you listed can do what you want.

    What do you mean? None of these tablets will do what I want? None of these generic tablets will be functional for browsing, videos, etc? Will I be able to have the official Android market?
