Few questions before I take the plunge
Alright so I've wanted a tablet for a while now. None of the Froyo ones of the past really appealed to me but now there's of course the Iconia A500 and the Transformer out...well, if you can find it.
I was initially sold on the Transformer, in fact I would've picked it up on the first day had there been any stock...but now I've also been hearing about a lot of problems with the Transformer (bricking, touchscreens failing, and more).
So right now I'm really considering the Iconia, but I have a few questions for those of you who already have it.
Basically, there a few things which the Iconia must do well. I'm a huge YouTube user and I need a solid, reliable experience with that. My dear old Droid Eris (rooted) occasionally hiccups when it comes to YouTube (HQ not playing, etc) so I was wondering how the YT experience is on the Iconia (any video lag, choppiness, etc...)
And of course next is web browsing. So far I've only heard good things in this regard, that it works pretty much like you would expect of a desktop, which is good. Any issues? Is the browsing smooth? I hate to make this comparison here, but it's inevitable...how is it in comparison to the iPad? I would never buy an iPad, but my father has one so I just need something to consider it to. Lack of flash notwithstanding, it's pretty smooth and responsive...
Other than though I'm excited at the prospect of charging my phone and tethering at the same time, haha. Honeycomb looks really great and I really want to take the plunge.
Also, I've read people saying that Best Buy has a 14 day return policy...is there a re-stocking fee or anything? Would be a great way to try it out.
So, if you can let me know what you think of your Iconias, I'd appreciate it a lot! Pros, cons?
