    I guess pricing will determine how this compares to the new Galaxy Tabs and the Transformer. Any word on pricing yet?

    Specs have it listed @ 1.5 ghz Snapdragon.

    Is that a single - or dual core processor?

    It's also a 2.x device - not Honeycomb like the rest of the newer tablets coming out.

    Ah, it's expensive then. Snapdragon can be single or dual core and it comes with good graphics processing, but overall this doesn't seem like a very competitive offering from HTC, who have loyal phone customers ready and waiting for their tablets.
