Just picked it up at www.hsn.com: $599+ shipping and it includes the dock/keyboard. Delivery date is 5/3

This looks like it'll be a hard sell with the iPad 2 @ $499.  I'm just not convinced Windows 7 is there yet for tablet computing.  The eee pad transformer stands a better chance in this market as it's only $399 and has an IPS display.  The A500 Iconia tab also looked interesting at $449.  $550 though...I get that it's very powerful for a tablet, but people are looking for ease of use and 'cool factor' and I think the W500 will flop.  Maybe if they threw that $150 keyboard in (and let's face it that thing is cheap to make), then it would be a better buy.

Hmm... Now I need to decide if I'm going to try and get one of these Windows 7 based tablets, or the Android version.
