Hello, I'm Jackie from Minnesota, USA, and I just signed up for the forums! I just started noticing the many new Android tablets coming on to the market from China and I'm very curious about them. I have a couple of friends with an iPad-- nice, but they cost way too much money. Besides, I'm a Linux user and appreciate the idea of open source devices and applications. I was considering getting a laptop or net book, but really I think a tablet device would work just fine for my needs, which aren't too complicated. I would like to surf the 'Net, get e-mail, play music, watch YouTube videos, and download some cool applications from the Android market. I'm amazed by the number of different brands and models of Android tablets out there, and I have no idea which are best, and which specs are important to look for. So I was hoping to get some input on that here. I am looking forward to reading more on these forums!
