    There is a new touch-spec Android tablet coming to the market soon. It's called the Getac Z710, and the company claims it is the "world's most compact and robust Android tablet". While that lofty claim may or may not be true, one thing is for sure... this tablet will give your wallet a pounding that will make it beg for a hospital. The non-3G version of the tablet will sell for $1499.99, and the 3G version goes for $1799.99. Ouch! Here's a quote with a description of the tablet to give you an idea of its capabilities,

    I don't know about you guys, but this seems severely over-priced, even for a tough-spec device. Not long ago, we shared that Fujitsu will soon be offering a tough-spec device for just $549.99, and the well-known and well-respected Panasonic Toughpad goes for $1299.99. It will be interesting to see if this Getac really is that much tougher than those other offerings. If anyone in the forums has familiarity with previous Getac products, please let us know what is so special about them.

    Android 2.3 and only 3G for $1800? Don't think it's flying off the shelves
