    Android vs Window 7

    In recent, Microsoft declares that they will take a big share in the tablet market due to its Win. 7 slate. This is a little bit of boasting. I don't think
    Win. 7 slate is good choice for popular guys. what' s more, Win. 7 slate is always higher that most Android tablets even though the general hardware.
    I search a lot and compared some sample and found Win. 7 is incredible expensive.
    Here are some samples from online sites.
    Android 2.2 OS Tablet 8 Inch with Freescale iMX515 Cortex A8 Chip, support Flash Player 10,512M RAM - US$ 229.00

    Amazon.com: Archos 9 PC Tablet (Black): Computer & Accessories


    Window 7 Ultimate OS Slate Tablet PC 10 Inch Multi-Touch Screen with N450 Due Core CPU, 1G DDR2 - US$ 449.00

    Well, anyway, Win 7 slate has a long way to go in the market. It's really confused, Win. 7 is really higher than Android tablet, even on the same site.

    Well, I want to have an Android 2.2 tablet for a long time. Compared the tablets you mentioned above, I love this Android 2.2 tablet, but there is one thing I concern. I don't know Nowsupplier.com too much, I will check a lot before I order this one.

    Android is free, Win Mobile 7 is licensed and so to make up that cost a mfr is going to have to charge more for the same device.

    Just like, in theory, if you could purchase a PC without Windows it would be a few hundred cheaper.

    Sounds like Win Mobile 7 might have an impact, at least in tablets, if and only if it gets a lot better with office integration.

    Yeah, Win 7 would have a certain share in the tablet market. Above all, Micro. has huge influence in the PC industry. Nobody can ignore what they do or what they said.
    But for the OS of portable device, I don't think Micro. can challenge Android and Apple.

    You do realize that the examples you chose include a Win7 slate with dual cores where the Android tablet only has a single one? At least make sure you're not comparing apples and oranges.

    Unless they come out with unbelievable office integration. Of course, BB has the corp email pretty well locked down, but they've been losing share and it's bread&butter corp email is about to come under big attack from Android and IOS. The business potential for IOS' facetime or Google Voice (and other teleconferencing, VoIP and video conference capabilities) could really put a hurting on BB's core market. If I was Apple, the next commercial I would do is a businessman doing a video conference from an airplane. Seems like that would be a pretty big deal to traveling executives.

    Ultimately I don't know how MS can leverage Office in a significant way. The screens are too small and the power isn't really there to do much in a meaningful way other than view a document.

    Maybe MS is too bureaucratic to innovate or due to their arrogence. For me, MS's recent products are really suck, no matter the fomer Win CE or the latter Win P 7.

    I got a new PC a few months ago. It came with no Win7 OS disk. Not even sure I can get one without paying an arm and a leg, and even then it's just a factory reset (not clean Win7) filled with your typical bloatware. Maybe one day I'll create a system restore disk and play around with Ubuntu or something, but office integration is sort of a big deal for me since I often use my PC for work.

    Currently, most PC in the market don't run official Win version but just Linux or something such many PC from Dell. So, if you buy such kind of PC, you really have to prepare a second choice. You choose the Ubuntu is a good one. You can find some useful infor. here. Ubuntu Forums

    The current Chinese knock off tablets are getting a LOT better and offer a great value for the price. The one mentioned by the OP is pretty neat. Also there is the Flat Computing Flatpad A10T which is a 10" Tegra 2 with capacitive screen. Then the Elocity A7 which is a 7" Tegra 2 tablet. Let's not forget the Archos 70 and 101 which are out right now and getting Froyo in a week or two. By Q1/Q2 next year there will be a plethora of quality Android tablets out there whether they be Cortex A8 or Cortex A9 (OMAP 44xx / Tegra 2) based running Froyo or better.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.
