Within weeks, they are So worthless, and truly a waste of money. Too much money.
Just like my Epson Photo Scanner that just died...it will cost $195 to fix it. I only paid $80 for it!
So, now it is garbage, and I will have to spend $127 on a replacement, when this machine was perfectly fine till last week!
We Are Doomed.
I agree with you, but they aren't worthless. Some people use tablets in meetings...sometimes to take notes...sometimes to play angry birds.
I would have bought an iPad, Xoom, Galaxy, or iPad2 by now but still can't justify replacing my Droid1 yet. It's like, I bought it right after launch and it still can roughly do everything all these devices do...it's just a little more sluggish, but has wifi/3G, GPS, 16GB, and the ability to download apps from the marketplace.
I know people who own 3 or 4 of these types of devices...if you ask me, that's a total waste since they all have roughly the same functionality. I may skip tablets altogether and just get another smartphone when I give up on my droid unless my wife thinks she can deal with a tablet & a bluetooth keyboard for her next laptop purchase (mine's covered by work and it'll most-likely always be a dell laptop...which I don't mind)
