    I'm very curious as to what they are doing running Android with 4GB of ram! Is it some custom version? I can't wait to see what kind of gaming we can do with Tegra 2, that sexy 7" screen, and 4GB of the good stuff! *In love*

    Screen resolution of 800 x 480? Sigh..... My HTC Touch Pro 2 has that, and it's a 3.6"

    The 1.3mp camera should be more than adequate for video conferencing, and really who's going to be taking pictures with a tablet? Also, it's a pretty big improvement over not having one.

    This I'm interested, however I doubt it'll be in a price that I'm interested in. Camera? Meh. Not a worry for me.

    Uhm, so what would be the "right" megashmixel number for it to impress, given it's inherently pathetic optics? I'll tell you a secret, even 2 megapixels hardly make sense on such devices.

    i think it's a smart move, put more into 1.3mp, rather than waste a larger sensor behind optics that can't do anything with it, and keep the costs down. Good for taking pics that are mostly going to be sent to other mobile devices.

    I can imagine someone holding up this big-ass tablet taking a picture of something. it must look hilarious.

    Also, 4GB of ram... that's really sweet. The HP slate only has 1...
