I have a 7" tablet - the Pandigital Novel, now being touted as the 7" Android Tablet rather than just ebook reader.
Over on slatedroid.com there is a lot of development work on making it better etc. Runs 800Mhz with an ARM processor. I can stream video to it no problem (not flash, but mp4 based, like video streamed to your itouch) Run pandora, surf the web, read forums etc.
I have it set up with Android, and get to the android market place no problem.
Have lots of smart games (chess, bricks, sudoku, puzzles etc) loaded, and they run fine.
Ebooks - read fine… I use "aldiko"
Comics - 7" for me is a little small… I would rather use 10" for comics. Personal preference.
Amazon has it for $77 today. It regularly goes on sale around the net etc…
Resistive vs capacitive - having used both types of screens - you do need to press "more". But its not a mashing down of the finger. If you equate an itouch to rubbing gently, then on the resistive (PDNovel) its more of rubbing firmly, about 2x the pressure from capacitive. I find it reasonable and not at all difficult to move between the two types of screens.
I would pass on this offering if you want to really play with it. If you just want to use it as is, its an okay deal. At $50-$55 I would buy one or two, at this price its not attractive enough, given how many new tablets are coming nowadays.
