    good idea!

    Yeah, im not in the habit of speak "tech" anyway a) because of working with non-tech people and b) a bit of confidence thing and c) being self taught sometimes ive never picked up/learnt the correct terminology for things lol!

    Thanks Carl.

    sounds just like me...perhaps a pic of boot up, standard load up screen, app store, iplayer, youtube, generic app *maybe wifi finder or something* and a game *angry birds*? That way its a range of pictures

    Do you use this as an e-reader? I keep considering a tablet but cannot afford a top of the range device, but would only really consider buying one if I could use it to read on.

    Basically I'm trying to justifty buying one for any other reason than i want one

    I've since read that the 101 can develop problems (specifically the USB drive) over time. @Little-Miss does your device still work and do you find your using it as much as you thought?

    Device still works, but has slowed down. That maybe my penchant for downloading masses of apps. I plan to wipe it and start again.

    Do i use it often? No, not really. After getting an iPhone 4 i use that a lot more then my tablet. I kinda want an iPad now. Nice introduction to tablets...

    Hence my interest now Was thining of getting one as a present, but now thinking of getting one for myself

    I am playing around with an Ipad in work at the mo and must say the screen is much better than I would have thought for reading from. I've had a quick play with the Archos in HMV but as there is no books installed on it, I cant see how good it would be to read on. I just know the screen insn't supposed to be too good, but I just wondered how much of a problem it was on a daily basis.

    If you can get the HP Tablet, then thats the winner, especially as Android is being ported for it

    Unfortunately it comes down to cost. That is what I would like, but was looking at a budget one as a present. Since I started looking though, it's got my interest and i've started coming up with lots of reasons why I would need one

    I did think, maybe a budget entry tablet wouldn't be too much of a waste of money if I didn't use it that much. But chances are if it's not as good that would be one reason why it wasn't used.
