Hi all,

I'm looking to get something along the lines of an iPad, but the non Java puts me off from buying one, as a few of the sites I frequent use Java to function.

What tablet would you guys recommend for things such as Internet browsing etc ? Is there anything along the lines of the iPad & is well supported ?




Do you mean flash or java or javascript?

javascript is fully supported, java is a big bag of **** and you should use better sites, and flash - well ok i'll give you that.

In answer to your question - that Samsung Tab is the only worthy rival.


Hold out for the Windows tablets!


I was playing with the Samsung Galaxy Tablet the other day.........quite nifty but would still rather have a netbook.

Windows tablets ? Any links ?

Got a lappy but fancy a tablet

Will take a look at the Galaxy & Archos, thanks!

Do these support movies, music, flash etc as well?

Ta guys

I've played with 2 Win 7 tablets (prototypes I'll admit) and from what I saw, they aren't that great.

However if the manufacturers have improved since then (likely) you may want to wait. Although I'm still dubious about the use of Win 7 on a tablet... I personally didn't like it and thought it was too fiddly.

But as I said, could improve over time.

Not much joy, they are all smaller than the iPad.

Anything similar in size as well as functionality ?
