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]

Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet, 10.1 inch, 715 grams (1.58 lbs)
The Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet is a standard Tegra 2 device with 3G options and up to 64GB Storage. It does feature an IPS display with Gorilla Glass. With its full size USB slot and its SD Card Slot it provides good connectivity for file exchange on the go.
HP Slate 2, 8.9 inch, 690 grams (1.52 lbs)
The HP Slate 2 is a Windows 7 Tablet powered by an Intel Atom Z670 clocked at 1.5 GHz. It has up to 64GB mSATA Storage and should last with its 2-cell (30WHr) battery up to 7.5 hours. With the possibility to add the Tablet to the optional dock one can have 2 more USB 2.0 ports plus the ability to extend the screen via HDMI to another device.
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.
MSI Windpad 110W (232G), 10.1 inch, 850 grams (1.87 lbs)
The 110W has the 1280x800 screen and integrated mouse pointer, 32GB SSD, HD decoder (via the 6250M graphics,) 2GB of RAM and Windows 7 Home Premium - A well balanced feature set for a mobile PC. With a 2-cell battery we're probably looking at 30-40Wh of power (unconfirmed) which is a 3-5hr usage time. If the Windpad includes some nice accessories (we are assuming the docking port is still included) it could make quite a well balanced product. And good value too.
