Latest life changing event.
« on: March 02, 2012, 08:06:14 PM »
 A couple weeks ago, I got a tablet. Aseus Iconia, Droid 4.0. This thing is just great. Since I've had it, the only time I touch my laptop, is to pull some music or videos off it to my tab. He battery on this thing is a beast too. I watched a two and a half hour movie, and had 75% life left. Tons of useful brewing apps too. If any of you are thinking of pulling the trigger on one, do it! You will not be sorry. Got a steal on mine on Amazon. This particular one is cool, cause it has a USB and micro SD slot. Also has HDMI out, which is really cool to stream stuff I download, or YouTube, or Netflix to the big screen. So, again, if you've been putting getting one off, do it. The Weaze give it two snaps in "Z" formation.

Thanks for the review. I would love to have an iPad or something similar. I'll keep this in mind.

You're awesome Puna. For the record, my tablet is pantless, too.

I got the Acer Iconia A500 about six weeks ago. Which one is yours?

With a usb hub I plug a keyboard and wireless mouse into it. Then I use a $3 walmart foldable picture holder to hold the tablet upright.

Damn thing is pretty polished. Fast and snappy. Battery lasts a long time. Wifi and Bluetooth works flawlessly. Plug it in via HDMI and I'm looking at the tablet on my 50" flatscreen. :o

Could replace my laptop. Almost.

I don't look good on a 50" flat screen though, like a bucket of lard!

Yup, I got the  500A. I really like the on screen keyboard, so no need for an external here. I love playing Angry Birds on my 50"! BTW, with a couple free apps, you pretty have all the capabilities of Promash, and then some.

Yeah I like the keyboard too. Just seeing what it will do. That it'll accept a keyboard and mouse amazes me. Android has become quite the OS.

And proud of it! I have several friends with various "I"  products. They envy my Droid, and the abilities they have. Not to mention they are not locked. Thumbs up to Apple for starting the tablet craze rolling. And knuckles to Droid and Google for designing a decent OS.  8)

I don't understand why anyone wouldn't want an iPad as opposed to the other options out there. Note that I'm talking about the new iPad with retina. We have a fairly diverse ecosystem at work so i get to play with lots of different devices. Latest was that monstrous samsung tablet. None of them match the ease of use and general 'sanppiness' of the iOS interface, plus the app ecosystem is littered with malware, spyware and ripoffs.
