    This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for except I heard they are not out until Q1 2011. Shame as I’d buy one now!

    I was disappointed with iPad and I can see that struggling alongside tablets like these which offer full Windows use.

    No matter what anyone brings to the table, the iPad will not struggle (not in the sales department anyway).

    I have an ipad which I have found is next to useless for any serious business use – it cannot save related files from an e-mail together in a folder and it does not work properly with “old” POP accounts (like

    A long discussion with Apple elicitated “It is not a computer you know” – “it is a new way of working” – if you want to save files from e-mails in a folder (ie all word/excel/pdf’s related to a specific project) then you need a computer and it works fine with all “NEW” e-mail systems – so I suggest you delete and get a modern account…..

    So, if a pad type computer comes out that works like windows (which I KNOW works with virgin net and I KNOW saves e-mail attachments) it should be a winner.

    My view is the ipad is a great toy – but don’t expect to use it for any serious business – assuming these new pad computers work as stated the above systems should be great.

    iPad is just a toy, they make it almost “impossible” to print to your already paid for WiFi printers, it doesn’t play Flash Videos, and file structure? What file structure! And then you can’t upgrade a non-3G iPad to a 3G on????? Come on Steve, get with the program here!

    Now if the Asus EP121 has 3G where you can insert your mobile SIM card, that would beat iPad hands down any day!
