    I like the third one, with a smaller keyboard anchored to the bottom right of the screen - looks very usable if you're holding the device in your left hand.

    Have to say, I'm looking forward to this year. These tablets are the devices I've been waiting for for a couple of years now, and hopefully come next christmas I'll have a huge range of hardware and OS to choose from

    I would want a tablet, but I recently bought a Nokia N900, and I can honestly say it's the most useful gadget I ever owned and would make a tablet rather superfluous to me - I hate to have to carry more than 1 device, and the smaller the better. The N900 is a good browser, decent IMAP email, Linux shell available (SSH etc), media player and rapidly growing app downloads... and it multitasks smoothly. Smaller than a tablet, but there is nothing I can't do on it that I could on a tablet... the only things I find limiting are text entry, which would be the same on a touch screen tablet...

    N900 in, tablets, netbooks etc out... I look foward to smartphone devices getting better.

    It's not really news that they're advertising Chrome browser. I've driven past a massive billboard for it on the way to school for the last month.

    Having recently got a HTC Hero, and having wanted a N900, i have to agree with this sentiment. give me something arroung 9-10" with all the features my Hero has, and im happy.
