    After the market went nuts with Apple releasing the iPad and everyone decided the thing to make was tablets, I'm waiting to cast my judgement untill all the manufacturers have their products on the table and there are some proper comparisons released.

    It'll be interesting aswell to see what OSs the tablets are released with and how they compete with iOS.

    For now; I wait...

    What about tethering? I don't want to get a 2nd data plan when my phone has unlimited.

    I do like the idea of cashback for your previous laptop. I've got a 13" laptop here that's on it's last legs so I'm interested already.

    Agreed, I'm not interested in an old Android OS, but Windows 7 is great and the trade in is amazing. I have a laptop thats almost 4 years old and I'd be happy to trade it in for a 7 in. I hardly use the laptop anymore because the battery sucks and it has low memory and I'd love a tablet for my car

    It'll be as overpriced as the iPad or Samsung's Galaxy Tab. I mean... 800 Euros w/o a contract? Or 36 x 35 Euros (= 1360) with 3? Or 36 * 25 + 250 (= 1150) with T-Mobile? That's for the Samsung in Austria, just to clarify.

    well its a start but Im not impressed as of yet, not until it can handle flash and HD content, then with a sub $500us price for a 10" I would go for it.

    The trade-in scheme sounds great, but I'm not sure I'd go for one just yet. I'm waiting for the inevitable price drops once there's more competition...

    I've seen plenty of dual booting tablets out there already. Not from big recognized manufacturers such as ViewSonic but there's a ton of Chinese tablets (a lot of them are iPad clones) that sport dual boot and sometime even triple boot! so this is hardly the first (unless of course this was supposed to be the first for ViewSonic in which case just ignore everything I said).
