Also thanks to Dynamism, we’ve got the TW317A5 on it’s way for us to have a thorough look over. Stayed tuned.

Considering my aforementioned thoughts on consumer-oriented slates, the Onkyo tablets are going to have to be seriously usable if they want to avoid a roast. I have yet to use a capacitive Windows slate, so perhaps there will be some redemption to be had. I won’t let my earlier essay influence my thoughts on the slate. If it works well, it works well. If it doesn’t, expect me to be very honest about it as we always are in our reviews.
