    Have you had a play with them all? May be worth holding off for this years crop of tablets.

    check out the advent vega too but you may want to wait a few months for the new tablets to come out - I know you can always wait and wait but there are loads of really good ones on the horizon.

    yes i know but i am a very very impatient man lol

    Wait a little while for the new series of Android 3.0 tablets. they will be rolling out very shortly and will be superior to any of the other current market offerings.

    Bonus in making the current gen cheaper as well if you wanted the current specs.

    I would go for an Android tablet over ipad any day.

    yup - I have the advent vega and once it's on the marketplace you can choose between quite a few free apps that will let you open and edit documents. I assume your talking about office docs?

    yes word docs etc so tied between galaxy or ipad arrgh

    they are very diferent products :-

    the galaxy is around 7" while the ipad is around 10" so how portable do you want it and what size screen do you want? My android tablet is a 10" one which is pretty useless when out and about so things like bar code scanning in shops for price comparisons are not really practical without looking like a idiot but when it comes to browsing the net, emails, media apps, films, trailers etc. etc. it's a great size.

    the ipad will work very well out of the box but if you do want to do something with it that there isn't an app for you've got no chance while the android os can be much more customized but be aware that this also, for now at least, means it often needs a certain amount of fiddling to get things how you want. To summarize that one I bought an android tablet but when my dad wanted a smartphone I got him an iphone instead of one of the androids on offer because he isn't very techy and just wants things to work but he also doesn't push the boundaries of what it can do so is less likely to want to try and do things that apple don't want him to do anyway.

    think i might hold out then and see what comes out any ideas when new tablets are out?

    I don't have any dates I'm afraid I stopped paying attention to that side of things when I finally made my mind up to get the vega back in Nov last year - some really nice looking ones on engadget earlier today though but didn't read through all of the details to find the proposed release dates - I'm sure there will be a few dates mentioned though if you have a look.

    this or this for best tablet ever.

    I have an ipad and would recommend them. You can do editing of Word documents in apps such as Documents to go. Apple's own Pages also converts Word docs, so you could edit or create using that too.

    Cool, if u go for the vega pm me if you have any trouble or questions about it I'm loving mine now that i have a custom rom on it. Best thing to do is order it online then you get a week to test it out and they'll take it back at any dsg store if you don't like it.

    iPad all day long especially now with the iplayer app it's superb
