"I get all the excitement about Apple's iPad. Even if it is just an iPad Touch writ large, that would be enough to make me want one as well. But, the $499 price-tag give me pause, and I'm not crazy about Apple's locked-door policy towards developers and their iPad applications. That's why I've been looking forward to the other cheaper, more open, and Linux-based tablets.

"Now that the iPad is being shipped, it's becoming clearer who's going to be shipping Linux-powered iPad competitors first. You can expect to see a flood of Google Android devices coming to the world from many of the Taiwanese computer vendors. These will include tablets from Acer, Asustek, BenQ, and MSI."
