    Considering the HP slate has been thrown under a bus for the moment, the iPad :P
    HP Slate is being redesigned with WebOS apparently, an OS that has never been seen running a tablet, so we have no idea how it is

    Thanks for that. I was under the impression the HP Slate ran Windows 7 or at least it did.

    it did originally (and may eventually)

    there is an asus one in the pipeline that runs win7 so hopefully that will be sensible cash i like the idea of a tablet that can be a full pc if needed

    There's a Dell 5" device coming out in a month or so, the 'Streak'. Runs Android. FYI. http://www.o2.co.uk/dellstreak (Note the version of Android is 1.6 when it's released and updated to 2.2 later in the year with an update).

    I think the Streak will be a tad more expensive. I'm thinking probably £300 or more, plus data plan.

    Isn't the joy with replacing the OS on it though? Getting Ubuntu running on it, for example?

    You'd have to be mad! For the base 3G model, plus accessories such as dock, warranty, camera adapter and vga cable, you're talking £750 inc VAT!! My last PC didn't cost me that much!!
