Buy tablet or laptop?
Can a tablet use a keyboard for writing on plane or car trips?
Nearly every worthwhile tablet out there includes Bluetooth keyboard support. Logitech, Kensington and others make some interesting integrated keyboard cases. Logitech in particular has announced a wireless keyboard with Android-specific keys, designed for the Tab 10.1.
Streaming Japanese TV shows using a tablet
My 73-year-old Japanese-born wife is wheelchair-bound and unable to visit a local Japanese video store as she has done in the past. I have been investigating ways to stream Japanese language and Korean language (with Japanese subtitles) to our HDTV using the internet. One possibility that has entered my mind is to use a table with an Android OS to connect to the TV. I could then establish a wireless network to connect my desktop (which uses Comcast cable) to the laptop. Is the idea feasible? What pitfalls am I likely to encounter? Is there one tablet that you would recommend for this task?
Two of the many sites that stream these types of show are:

Hp WEB OS VS DERIODE
Alright, Eric and I are here to answer any questions you might have about tablets. The context here is "work and play" but feel free to ask us anything tablet-related. We can't guarantee the best answers, but we'll answer honestly. Also, apologies in advance if we don't get to your particular question.
quad core processors?
when should tablets be shipping with quad core processors?
Nvidia says we'll see quad-core processors in Android tablets later this year.
Android or iOS - Any Other?
What about WebOS and other OSs?
Sure, but for what?
WebOS and RIM's QNX OS do a great job of tackling work-related tasks, such as calendar and email integration, presentations and document creation. The trouble is, they're both missing the "fun" component. The apps aren't there, and the momentum seems slow to develop them.
Syncing with computers
Which tablet best syncs with computers in particular with Win 7?
Other than IPAD, which tablet has the longest battery life?
The Toshiba Thrive lasted about 9.5 hours in our testing. That puts it at number three, behind both versions of the iPad.
How likely is that the Amazon tablet is coming?
How likely is it that the Amazon tablet is coming? Will it be similar to the Nook Color like a Kindle Colr, or more of a new product?
I would bet on it
Amazon is being very secretive, but they would be crazy not to. They have the momentum of the Kindle behind them and the ability to make tons of money on the content end with their App Store, Video Store, MP3 store, Kindle Store. Let's just say I wouldn't buy a Nook Color right now.
Title (required, 60 characters max):
If we ask you to recommend a tablet or a smartphone, would you recommend us blackberries because this is brought to you by Blackberry?
What specifically is the Xoom good for? I have one now and love it. I was wondering what else I may be able to do with it.
I have a Dell Streak Tablet with Android 2.2. How do I find app to use with my tablet?
Try the Market or Amazon App store
The Streak includes the official Google app Market for downloading apps. You could also try downloading Amazon's App Store directly from Amazon.
iPad vs. Galaxy tab 10.1 Features
I have a regular iPad 1 and just received a Galaxy Tab 10.1. My first response to the Galaxy Tab is: where are all the apps to watch HBO, ABC, etc.?
Are they making a tablet that is more of an extension of your existing handset? I have a droid x and dont want ANOTHER $30 a month.
Which tablet in your opinion comes the closest to being a laptop replacement?
It's the Toshiba Thrive. Thanks to its removable battery and inclusion of full USB and HDMI ports. Also, its the thickest tablet we've seen so far, if that matters to you.
Samsung 3G 10.1
When will this get to the US for sale?
Syncing tablet with laptop
I like Android's ability to automatically sync contacts and calendar via Google, and am considering an android tablet. Will i os5 and Apple Cloud permit the same kind of syncing?
I have been looking at a Xoom tablet, how effective is a bluetooth keyboard and mouse?
Awesome, but why not go laptop?
The Xoom can be used very easily with a Bluetooth keyboard, or even a wireless mouse, but it's still doesn't completely replace the efficiency of a proper laptop--even an inexpensive one. This is especially true when it comes to document and spreadsheet editing. Tablets are the trend right now, but I suspect we'll start appreciating laptops again soon. I already have a tablet hangover.
Samsung vs Apple
Do you think Apple will be successful in blocking Samsung tablets in Europe past the current injunction?
beside ipad2 which other android tablet can do the ipad2 face time?
Write to SD card
I need to save data to an SD card. When can we expect this feature on Android tabs? Tks.
