scoping out tablets from Albuquerque


Jul 22, 2011
Hi all - just checking in; been lurking here for a while.

I'm seriously thinking about getting a tablet by the end of the year.
BUT I'm also currently trying to justify why I want to do this (beyond mere gadget-lust) :rolleyes: (this post is serving as my beginning effort to sort out my reasons & lusts)

My gadgets past & present:
Smartphones: Motorola Q, Q9c; original Droid; HTC Thunderbolt (my currently active phone)
Kindle (original)
Netbook (Asus EeePC 1000HE)

I am definitely a die-hard Android fan.

Why I'm waiting? I want to see what Amazon comes out with. I love my Kindle (but I more often use the Kindle App for my Thunderbolt).
There are some features that will possibly be on the Amazon tablet that intrigue me; but I'm not exclusively wedded to an Amazon tablet; if, by the time the units are announced for order (pre-order), the specs aren't up to what I want, then I'm scoping out the Acer Iconia, Asus Transformer, Galaxy Tab, Toshiba Thrive, & the Vizio tablet.

So I'm definitely watching here what everyone has to say; thanks everyone for your contributions.
