Okay, after reading the typos on my last post with great HORROR, I'm gonna try keep this post error-free. Just been checking out the new Archos 101 tablet. It comes out in October, check out the link.

http://www.archos.com/products...&lang=en

Looks cool, 10 inch Capacitive screen, Froyo, full flash, a kickstand and even THINNER THAN IPAD. But it does get me asking a question. If I had a great browser device like that, do I still need an Android smartphone????? Consider this, a young hip trendy type who always carries a hip trendy bag will always have one of these tucked away in that bag and will pull it out when at the coffee shop, on the Metro, at a friends place, the park etc. One thing it doesn't have is 3G, but I can tether it to a cellphone and use that as a modem where wifi is unavailable. So I'm thinking a more sensible combination would be the Archos 101 plus traditional phone like a Nokia C5. I mean, Android smartphones still REFUSE to give us 3G video calls (except one), plus since my internet is now being consumed on the tablet, does the phone really need wifi? Or even a large 3.5 inch screen for that matter? Any place where I WOULD browse wifi is probably also a place where I can sit down and get comfortable. The cellphone browsing is for walking down the street, and will be done over 3G. So the cellphone now concentrates on its old job - calls, sms and mms plus the occasional email viewing, newsfeeds, facebook statuses and of course video calls; while the tablet now handles media (video), books, internet, and productivity. It also means I only have to manage ONE mobile data account, unlike an Ipad 3G solution ( or any tablet with 3G) where I'm paying two data bills, one for the phone and one for the tablet. What am I trying to say? Well, this tablet business may not be so good for the full touch smartphone. Makes no sense to have a tablet AND a HTC Desire, unless of course you are a really loaded geek.

but if u want a tablet just 2 use while staying @home then go ahead to ipad (though regarding 2 it's specs n price i'd still pass!). this g-tab is truly a portable dvice u know, it'd fit right in 2 a jacket pocket (would ipad? i donthinkso!) or u could just carry it in a very small n stylish waist bag or evn a purse (4ladies offcourse). n i guarantee u tht u wouldn't feel like browsing on a smartphone with it, i mean, listen 2 urself, hv u evr seen a 7" smartphone?! d biggst 1 out thr is d dell streak w/5" screen, n tht 2 is considred 2 b closing in 2 tablet size! +f.y.i. thr's still netbooks wth 7" display. so u c, ipad is nevr gonna b way bettr than g-tab, it's nevr evn gonna b bettr!

Well i agree with Alu about the size ! Although Blackpad from RIM will be the same size as Ipad. It's release in november.

The best in the west! It's ALL as: UMPC, Laptop, cell phone, music player, video reader and camcorder, etc... It'd lightweight. Maybe Alien from flying saucer are awaiting for to bring to their planet? LOL! Seriously it's a marvel...A perfect iphone killer. Just right size to fit in my pocket. I loke to wear large pockets. The only little low is they would place an 8 Megapixels camera as HTC EVO 4G have. Samsung is very good quality...But expensive, wish lower price as $800. would buy it now.

So many wanabees and trying hards wanted to be an iPhone killer, yet iPhone still one of those most desired gadgets to date. Just look at the numbers. Now, if this Samsung tab won't even make half of what the iPad has made, you should be ashame of yourself, har har har...

7 inch is a lousy size. It tries to strike some sort of middle ground but just ends up being good for nothing. It an over sized smartfone. The idea of a tablet is to give you a "fuller" experience of media, books, the internet etc. But the web still look too shrunk down in this display, but then its too big to be as portable as a smartphone. It wont fit a pocket, it has to go into a bag of some sort; so why not just get and iPad. Sue, there is no flash, but it doesn't shrink the net to make you feel like you are STILL browsing on a phone. I'm no apple fanboy, if the Galaxy Tab had a 10 inch screen i would definitely vote for it, but as it stands i think iPad is way better.

Well It seems to be great, personally i don't trust apple, can't imagine Ipad without flash player or even more without any camera. That really sucks... No flash memory on the Ipad either!! All my home stuff are Samsung digitALL and expect to have this amazing tab ! Though i'd like to check out the BlackPad from RIM as well. It's so much important for me as well to know about the battery life !

Coz if u wanna use it to, say, browsing d net or watch vids 4 hours, i don't think u can hold it in ur hands that long especially while u'r not home (it bcom 2 heavy, 2 big). 1 more thing d ipad don't hv is offce app n d g-tab hv 'think free office'. so now tell me which 1 would b more productive 4 d rest of d world. d real toy here is d ipad, coz d best thing they can do bside showing pics is playing games compare to d g-tab that can do pretty much evrything (fr making a call, vid call, doing offc needs, taking pics, rec pretty gd vids, etc.. etc) n all that with a much, much lesser price. now tell me why d g-tab can't kill d ipad. got me?

everything depends on where you want to use it,but agreed that, If it does you could call and he would be with a camera and have the flash player, it would be 1000 times better, the screen ipad I like very much, but why they do so by the end of everything, after all, is the simplest things that have occurred over many years, place them on a pile and do one good thing that people are satisfied, it does not need the camera for you, do not use it!
