Hmmm... they got the price right. If only the specs were just a *little* better.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I love the price, but I would like to try one out before committing to buy.
This is great for recognition as a platform. I doubt I would buy it as the internal components are well below my minimum. However; as far as the market goes so were those of a netbook. We all know the netbook had and has a very big effect market wide. You all know (at least I would imagine), the tablet I like right now
"the Adam at http://notionink.in/index.php" . This as I said is at the right price for people to just pick up (as an impulse buy), when they see them. I also think this platform will stick this time, but we will see!
Sorry the link is a cut and paste, for some reason the options and or editing is not available.............
It's pretty amazing that they offer all those features for under $200.
200 is a little pricey for what you get. About 100 bucks sound right.
I am more with 3vi1 thats price for the capabilities is a little high. However; I see this as a best buy/wallyworld/target/ grab item. At that price people will just grab one without knowing specifics in many cases. Think about it users on here saw a netbook, and thought what, I wonder what hardware is in something that cheap. The general consumer thought wow my kid, teenager, mate, friend, mother, myself etc would love that, and grabbed one, with no clue what was in it. This is how the largest number of computers are bought, they ask the sales man or woman, who fills them with every inexperienced expectation in the world, they buy and walk out smiling.
Most sales guy only tell the positive side of the items so i find asking them is useless (just my experience :D)
I love my OL' tablet, even though it is a gateway! This one looks cool enough, Someone really needs to make one at least the size of a notepad for digital sketching, or as a digital notepad for classrooms and boardrooms. Apple and all the others are only 7" to 10"? All the Doctors have them, I guess they are to happy gouging the Health care industry to open up any other markets?
Thats a good point Inspector. I remember my first employment in computers was at a computer city years ago (they have been out of business for more than 10 years). My big problem was I would net sell the extended warranties past the bottom level, because I knew they were a total ripoff. I would sell higher dollar more capable PC's, but other salesman who did not understand computer hardware at all would always outsell me. I did however end up managing the return/rebox equipment section as well as being somewhat of an assistant store manager before Compusa started taking them over. I left when I saw that one coming, and went into contract work for Dell, HP, Compaq, IBM etc.....
That was about 1994-95!!!!!!
The HAL tablet, eh? ...Wonder if it tries to kill astronauts? I'd spend $200 on that.
"I didn't cry when Bambi's mother was shot... but I cried when HAL was turned off."
I see unit's like this as enabling the market in general. So I am glad to see it, because the more active the tablet market becomes, the more the big players jump into it. When they jump in with both feet the development and everything functional in tablets as well as E-readers moves much faster. This is a very good thing!
