Default Tablet

Anyone here have a tablet? Any recommendations? Not necessarily have intentions of using it with movie set-ups but thinking of picking one up.

picked up the Ipad 2. No review as it is still in the box. I might return it and get the one that is 3G. Target is having a sale and the 3G is only $30 more. They ran out and I needed something since it was my wife's birthday.

Review to follow.

It's out of the box but not completely set up yet. It was a gift for my wife and I was waiting for her to take the lead. I'll be setting it up this weekend. Ugh!

finally got it all hooked up. It's pretty sweet. The screen quality is awesome and more apps than you will ever need.

Cool! Have you tried that frisbee game? I forget what it's called. You throw the frisbee, then guide it in mid air through obstacles.

no I have to check it out. I really haven't looked into all the apps they have. I have mostly used it for surfing the internet. It's definately not a laptop replacement though. Not really convenient to do any kind of work on it. However, my next computer will be an apple. Some of the stuff they have going on is incredible. The whole Cloud sounds pretty cool.

Wife wants a tablet for x-mas, not necessarily the iPad. iPad is really too much just for an e-reader. Nook locks you into B&N content. Kindle Fire is getting bad reviews. color screen would be nice, but....

I give up, she can just wait. I can't figure it out, too many options, nothing is in the price range, or feature set it seems. Socks for x-mas. I'll be in the doghouse.
