The Google tablet they currently advertise already has Chrome on it.

I think I've had it for a little over a week. :)

OTOH, I'm back to using a nokia as my phone.

Truth be told, I'm not that sad. It does hotspots, and it works well as a phone.

Email works reasonably, and that's the thing I need most when I'm out.

I rather enjoy having a phone that the kids don't always want to play on...

I want a Nexus 7.  I may have to get impulsive and order one.

It's a sweet machine. I'm still waiting for my bluetooth keyboard case.

Ok so I had a chance to play with a N7 in a store.  It's a little on the small side.  I want something I can carry around and get real work done on without having to lug my big 17" laptop around.  My netbook is on its last legs so I'm just about officially in the market for a replacement.

I'm thinking about either the Asus Transformer or the Samsung Galaxy Tab with a keyboard attached to it for when I need to do non-casual work.

The idea of using a tablet as a laptop replacement is beginning to sound appealing, as long as I can add the keyboard when I want to.

Are you asking me or telling me? I did look at that version.

ConnectBot is definitely the most commonly used one.

I am trying it. the Virtual keyboard appears over the text, or at least it did the first time I tried it.

Haven't figured out how to make a "cntl" key with the virtual keyboard

Was able to get that but couldn't get the arrow keys to edit text. Feh, I will get it.

Yikes. Clearly this vulnerability was planted in the code by Apple moles who found their way into the Android development team! ;)

The ctrl key on connectbot had me emailing the developer.
Tap the text area of the screen, you'll see 3 buttons appear towards the
bottom: ctrl, esc, and keyboard.
I felt like an idiot too. :lol

I've found the N7 tablet's size to be about right, actually. I thought I'd prefer something larger, but in the end, I rather like this form factor.

But, I don't typically use my tablet for doing work. I have a proper laptop for that. I instead use it as a media device, and I play Vendetta Online with it (the interface is rather interesting).

omg ... the Transformer Infinity is totally droolworthy. I don't know if I want to drop that kind of coin, though.
