PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, we have the iPad out and about for a while now, doing its thing, most likely selling well. Of course, others want a piece of that pie as well, so we see tablets pop up all over the place, most of which are either ultra-low budget junk or vapourware (how that's Adam coming along, Notion Ink?). Earlier this year, Steve Ballmer proudly held up HP's Windows 7-powered Slate - but then, HP bought Palm, canned the Slate, promised a webOS tablet, and then resurrected the Slate as an enterprise product. Now we have a video of the Windows 7-powered Slate. Let's compare it to Samsung's detailed overview of its Galaxy Tab, and see ever so clearly why HP canned the darn thing in the first place.

Galaxy Tab looks like the right size

The ipad looks like a novelty ipod touch, I crack up when I see people using it with a serious expression.

I could actually see some current ipad owners switching to the Galaxy just for the Flash.

A lot of smaller news affiliates still use Flash and don't care about Jobs and his little war. People who I have talked to about this think Jobs is insane and don't see what the big deal is.
