Just finished reading the Spec's on this thing and it looks like the perfect tablet I've been waiting for. I wish Samsung would pick up their skirt and get dirty on the galaxy tabs but until they do I'm seriously considering picking up this guy. I've been on an iPad 2 and need to get away from the apple ecosystem.

What are your impressions on this tablet and do you think there will be community support for it. I don't want something I can't root.

My phone is a HTC one like I said I want to get rid of the iPad. LG Goad looks promising too

What specs? Other than resolution I haven't seen much.

I'm glad to see more 4x3 android tablets and am strongly considering the Slate 8 pro. I really don't like 16x10 for a tablet.

looks like you can buy one now. $329 isnt too bad, but it only has 1gb of ram. previews mentioned it would have 2gb i think

my guess is it was to keep the price down. something tells me they'll probably have a slate 10 pro eventually. maybe they'll put 2gb in that one instead

Anyone buy this bad boy yet? It's available at B&h and now online at Best Buy too.

Does it come with multi-year out of the box?

I picked up the Acer Iconia A1 810 at Staples for $99 and I love the 4x3 ratio. It makes me think I need to buy the Slate 8 pro as a faster, higher resolution replacement.

I'm a bit worried about the 1 gig though, particularly since I want multi-user. What does android do when it's out of ram? Kill apps? Pop up errors?

Been keeping a keen eye on this one too since its announcement - pretty much the same reason as all the above posts.

15% off from the UK's HP website for Cyber Monday (today) was just enough incentive for me to hit the "buy" button... its still 237 after the discount - ouch!! >_<

I'll report back once it arrives if any one is interested?
