    big phone, small tablet.

    phone works on BT only if i recall. would rather wait for a 7-10" screen.

    Also think Im waiting for Google to release a more 'tablet' version of Android to ensure a proper purchase. Gonna see this fall whats available.

    It makes calls like a traditional phone, however every review I have read claims it is awkward as hell to hold it like that. Personally, I don't think it has a very good niche in the market at all. Its going to be too big for a phone, and too small for a tablet. Just a personal opinion of course. Other than the big screen, the specs aren't anything different than whats on the market now.

    I just find it funny the pendulum is swinging back to "big" when it comes to mobile phones. Ugh, I remember those bag phones too... As for Dell, I kinda like the Thunder better.

    I haven't seen one in person. I would guess its like trying to talk on a archos. Kind of big but I'm a gadgets Guy so of course I want it.

    Ha-ha, I remember my Uncle having one of those back in the day. I remember thinking that he was a bad-ass because he had such a cool phone.

    I see. Then I must have read that Dell said that they expect calls to be used with BT, not that they have to. either way thats funny. I mean is adding an inch to my current screen really gonna be worth $500 to watch an occasional video? hmmm... I just don't understand, but I am definantly buying an android tablet this fall in the 7-10" segment, and I have seen some strong contenders and I have seen a taiwan manufacture making hardware ready to be branded with a new cover and your logo for sale so I KNOW somethign good is coming, cause Im not sure the NI Adam is going to launch first...
    my tablet will be:
    pixel qi
    good battery
    HD res with HDMI out
    USB
    support flash and run on Android
    wifi
    7-10" screen

    thats it, and I know its coming in a few months!

    Why, in this day and age of 2.2, does it only feature Android 1.6? I mean... you can root it and upgrade it yourself and all that, but if I were to go Bigger one day (or rather, if I am ever able to convince my husband that I need to, lol, might fake bad eye sight), I'd certainly wait for Google... but that's me.

    I'm going to read the Engadget review now and maybe come to a different conclusion
