Without sounding flippant, here is what I said "I want something to maybe watch a movies/videos, surf the web, have a
calendar, a scheduler, an alarm, word processing, some app programming
in the future and the like."
I don't see Word Processing highlighted or singled out anywhere, but it seems you have focused on that. There is both "consuming" and "viewing" in my listing of things I would like to do with the said device.
Yes in the past, single-use is what phones were for, but today, they are not. Did I once have a land-line with rotary dial? Absolutely. It went click-click-click when you dialed and you sometimes caught your finger when you were little - and yes it smarted. Today I don't own a curly-cord phone or even one with pulse dialing, that was the past. In my opinion, thinking about phones as a single-use device is antiquated thinking. It would be like thinking that a PC is an over-sized calculator.
A keyboard for a tablet can come in the form of a docking station, bluetooth or typing on the actual glass.
Listen Bob, I am not interested in getting in a war of words, although you might detect the irony of my posting this rebuttal. You have your feelings on this and I have mine. I am sure you have expertise in your field of choice and I applaud you for that, but the rhetoric and circular logic is not what I came here for.
I am looking for a comparable Android tablet to the BlackBerry Playbook - in both scope, memory and power. I need to make a decision to return this device if I can find something that will do the same job, and that will definitely be around next year (I am looking at you, HP Touchpad). Maybe this is naive thinking or too much to ask, but that is why I came to this forum.
