I paid $99 for my Touchpad and I'd gladly pay $99 for this thing. However, the $99 for the Touchpad was certainly a waste.

Glad to see it's outfitted with a rear camera and MicroSD...wish the Nexus 7 had those...

anything is better than an ipod. tired of seeing people with these things and they cant do shit with them unless they have ATT or wifi. so many have missed paying the important stuff in life just to get an iDevice.

Better than the Nexus 7?

In one respect in that it has a better camera. But the Nexus 7 has a quad core processor and 16 Gig internal storage on the base model. It is $30.00 higher but the asdditional storage and improved performance due to the better CPU makes it worth the price premium.

But you sacrifice the microSD slot and 2nd camera on the alter of that extra internal storage and faster CPU.

It depends on what you value more.

Very true! And with the Slate 7's smaller internal storage capacity, the micro SD slot would be even more important.

LMAO. After what they did to WebOS they sound like the boy who cried wolf.

It's going to take a looong time before I trust that joke of a company again...

Not a bad price. I paid $199.00 for my wife's Kindle Fire HD. It is more limited as to the apps it can run and has no external storage option. But it serves her purposes and runs quite well.

For myself, I prefer my 10.1" ASUS TF300T. Since I unlocked and rooted it, flashed a custom ROM and overclocked it to 1.5 GHz, I have been quite impressed with the performance.

But if I were in the market for a 7" tablet the Slate 7 would be one in the running for me.

Screen resolution is meh, but the price is decent. Might be a good tablet for my grade-schoolers.
