    I like that they say it "only" weighs 1.69 pounds, when that's way heavier than the iPad 2 and even heavier than the Xoom. I think I'll wait for the galaxy tab 8.9 or 10.1.

    And the iPad 2 is a hunk of junk IMO.

    I kind of like a larger bezel on tablets so you can hold it well without touchign the screen. Personal preference IMO.

    It is a beast when you compare all three. If the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is priced similarly I would get it.

    Now this looks like a tablet I could own. No data plan, no $800 price point.... And like others posted here, I like the fact that I can hold onto this without touching the screen with the edges. Not bad!

    Same here. I like the look too. My wife has been wanting a tablet of some sort for her job and until this was announced iPad 2 was really my only choice...

    agreed. That's quite the bezel, it could be half that width and still have plenty of room for your hands
