too many weaknesses
1) Great, it has a phone... It's too big to carry atround as a full-time phone, and I'm not comitting to a contract (and another, separate line) just to have it active. I have a phone, and I can use VoIP on the pad anytime...
2) not-quite-720p video recording means not-quite-able to make it look good running it through a video editor, especially mixed with other 480 and 720p content that does stretch properly to full screen 16:9.
3) poor quality screen, all things considered.
4) Android is still not ready for larger screens. When it is, it will need one bigger than this to hold UI changes and additional features. Doing what Apple did with the iPad is not possible on a screen this small, and apps don;t look good "stretched" to this size. Everyone chided Apple for the iPad being a stretched iPhone, but the reality is this is a stretched Droid and the iPad actually provides additional function for all that space.
5) especially if you're NOT using it as a phone (and why would you, really), then it;s too expensive for what it has. In this size, it should be $150-250 less than the same capacity iPad with 3G.
6) it may be smaller, and theoretically more portable, but its thicker, and since it;s not nearly the size of a page, falls to the bottom of bags, making it even less convenient. If you're gonna need a bag or a case anyway, this is actually TOO small, yet too big to pocket, so it fails on BOTH counts.
7) the iPad can be used landscape with the virtual keyboard reasonably well. Its far from ideal, but it works. This is too small to use both hands to type. Its as useless as an iPhone foe extended text entry, and would require an external keyboard for NetBook replacement.
Everything they argues the iPad wasn't, this isn't as well, and falls short on many things the iPad got right. Its a giant phone, and nothing more. Its exactly what everyone bitched they did not want, and here they are promoting it?
Make it 10 inches. Get Android 3 on it, supporting a real tablet oriented OS and added GUI functions. Make apps specific for larger screen resolution. Make it TRUE 720p resolution, for camera and the screen). Improve the screen. Improve the battery. Make the Phone component optional (or better yet, just improve pairing so it doesn't need one and can simple operate as your phone when its close enough to your phone to do so), and make it truly price competitive to the iPad ($50 less or more, after all these changes).
