Well-built with good screen and great battery life. The A500 offers full USB port and micro-HDMI out for flexibility, built-in DLNA media sharing and easy-to-access Micro SD card support. A well-rounded Honeycomb tablet that should get even better when 3.1 is available at the end of June [2 June 2011]

Gigabyte S1081, 10.1 inch, 895 grams (1.97 lbs)
Dell Latitude ST, 10.1 inch, 816 grams (1.8 lbs)
With a focus on business, the Latitude ST offers a hi-resolution screen and long battery life along with basic connectivity options with full-size ports. The casing is rubberised for grip. Capcative and Digitiser inpout layers are included. The optional docking station adds Gigabit Ethernet and comes with a keyboard. The 'Oaktrail' Z670 isn't a powerful CPU so multi-tasking will be limited. If the SSD is fast, it will help improve Windows 7 performance, otherwise it could feel quite sluggish.
