Monday Poll: Do you own an Android tablet? Are you still looking to buy one?

We are approaching the 1-year mark for Android tablets, that is if you don’t count that silly 7″ thing that Samsung released in December 2010. As far as official tablet operating system tablets go though, the XOOM was the first and it dropped towards the end of last February. That puts us right around a full year for Android tablets.

So over the last 12 months, we have seen almost every tech manufacturer on the planet pump out some sort of tablet. Most of them have dual-core processors, the screens seem to be getting better, cameras are improving, and so on and so forth. Over the next year, we will see quad-core chips, full HD screens, cameras at the level of our smartphones, and prices dropping into far reasonable zones. It could be an exciting year for tablets, even with most looking at 2011 as somewhat of a flop if you weren’t an iPad.

As the curious crew that we are, we want to know two things for this poll. Do you already own a tablet? If you do or don’t, are you still considering one (maybe a new one) going into 2012?

Do you own an Android tablet?

    I have an HP Touchpad and  Galaxy Tab 10.1 so im set for a while.

  • I have a Transformer Prime and I love it. I am interested to see what else comes out this year though.

  • I really really want an Asus Padfone to eliminate the need to have a tablet.

    I purchased a Asus Transformer Prime and love it.  I use it at home and during meetings all of the time.  I find it much easier to write e-mails, surf the web, etc. with the tablet. 

  • Derrick Rayburn

    I was looking at the Asus Transformer Prime but some of the reported issues has me waiting to see what will come out.  The fact I just pre-ordered the Galaxy note should be a nice bridge until one comes out that really grabs my interest.

    Remote desktop on my Atrix is nice, but man things are tiny.  Looking forward to the extra real estate and LTE that the Note will have.

    My wife has the Sony S that she won from a contest. I’ve played around with it and i love what Sony did with Android, only a few tweaks here and there from Sony and they did a nice job.¬†

    The transitions are very smooth and after testing against the ASUS Transformer I like the Sony S better.  It does take sometime to gt used to the Teardrop design but I am very impressed with this device.

    Plus if your a Play Station gamer the Sony S syncs right up toyour game with a lot of functionality & remote goodness.  Plus you can access and download all ov your Play Station content from the Blue ray off of your Play Station.

    Hoping to see more from Sony ūüôā

    Original Asus Transformer.   Love it,  the screen is one of the morst gorgous on the market. 

  • Still¬†don’t¬†see a need for one would just be a toy – Not enough capabilities for web design or graphic design.

  • I have a Moto Xoom and a Galaxy Tab. Even though the Gal. tab will never see honey comb, My other half uses it as an e-reader and the kids love them both and if I can get 20mins of sanity then they are the greatest inventions ever. lol¬†

    I got my Xoom on Blk friday, the only reason why I got it was because it was at such a great price. I have no regrets with it.

    Ummm, the GTablet was released on November,1¬† 2010, and despite how much ViewSonic screwed it up, its still a full fledged Tegra 2 tablet with a huge dev following. We’re even getting ICS on it with full hardware acceleration…

    I have a 10.1-inch Toshiba Thrive which I loved, until Honeycomb 3.2 crippled my ability to work with Office documents from the actual SD card and leave the built-in storage for application installs. Now I’m not excited about Android tablets anymore. If Toshiba ever releases ICS for the Thrive, I’ll give it a try but I’m not paying for another tablet just so Google or the manufacturer can take features away from it at a later time.

  • Love my Galaxy Tab 10.1, wifi.

  • 80% of my computer use at home is on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 and i almost never touch my phone other than actually making calls.

    We bought four Moto Xoom Wifi tablets for Christmas. They have been awesome thus far. Haven’t rooted any of them thus far. Haven’t had any reason to. Have wifi tethered them to all of our various Android smartphones which I HAVE rooted. REALLY awesome when tethering my Razr Maxx in a 4G area. Camera is more than adequate. Hey, if you want pro photos, by a DSLR. Got even better with the ICS update. Wish we had ICS on our phones, but it’s coming. Maybe I’m just easy to please, but this tablet is really strong.

    Quad-core and stock ICS, These 2 things are vital while waiting for the right tablet.

      Not saying those are bad ideals, but… having used ICS on the TF201 and the Xoom, a quad core has no impact on the user experience. In fact, if anything, the Xoom runs smoother.

    I had the Acer a100 (7″ tablet). But the screen was so crappy and felt too close in size to a smartphone that I decided to return it. I’m now waiting for Samsung to announce its rumored tablet. The one with the extra large super amoled HD plus screen.

    as much as a google/android fan i am, i really want to see what windows 8 tabs bring to the table

    because, i want the functionality of a desktop/laptop with the formfactor of a tablet

    • Anonymous

      I agree with you. ¬†That’s why I’m only willing to spend <=$300 on an Android tablet because there are certain windows apps I need to be able to run to justify $400+. ¬†So I'm looking for a cheap Android tablet now and probably a Win 8 tablet later.

      I have to imagine the window of opportunity for Android tablets to establish a base is between now and when Win 8 tablets ship.  If they don't then I can't see them ever selling well.

    I honestly haven’t had a need for a tablet, although I do use them at work due to the ease of walking around managing while keeping up with tasks on the tablet or showing progress to employees, but at home I just never feel like I need a tablet. I’d rather have a laptop, or I’m at my desk anyways and using my desktop. ¬†

    I did buy my wife an Ipad 2 because you know women, they want to brag about their crap to their friends and I bought my mother the kindle fire because she really enjoys e-reading. 

    After seeing the video of the Nexus being used as a desktop PC, I really think we’re headed to that being the future of computing. ¬†Where you can take your entire computer in your pocket, sit it in a dock at any location and have everything you need show up on the 30” monitor with a blue tooth keyboard/mouse. ¬†That seems more likely to be the future to me once the hardware starts to match our current laptops/desktop computers processing power.

    I had an Asus Transformer, it was nice, but I just didn’t need a tablet. So I sold it and got myself a Galaxy Nexus. For it was a very good move.

  • Sadly, I just can’t bring myself to buy an Android tablet. ¬†The lack of games, hulu plus, hbo go, etc just makes it too unappealing. ¬†Mix that with poor quality/screens (Xoom, etc), slow or no updates (Tab, etc) and I just can’t bank on it improving. ¬†Had a Xoom, a Galaxy Tab 10.1, and a Fire – returned them all. ¬†I’ll just stick with my iPad for now and hope there are drastic improvements.

    • JT

      Sorry….I had to re-read that last part: ¬†”¬†…and I just can’t bank on it improving”. ¬†By the time you were done writing that, 5 more manufacturer’s along with 100 more developers just jumped on board. ¬†I wouldn’t worry too much about it improving considering how far Android tabs have come in such a short amount of time. ¬†

    Yes and yes the first 8 months of my Xoom pretty much sucked it worked but not how it should have for a $700 tablet,then it got 4g and now its running custom ics roms and is fully functional. At this point it is a great beginners tablet but I am looking for something super fast minimum quad core definitely lte connectivity because once you get late speeds nothing is ever good enough, an amazing screen and I am happy with the 10″ size, but I would like a little better battery life especially in stand by modes. With all that said I am going to be buying another tablet this year maybe even two if they put out the right stuff ( maybe this time they can get the pure moto/ Google experience tablet right) good luck.

    I bought a Notion Ink Adam. It’s okay, particularly since I’ve now got a semi-stable ICS rom on it, but I’m looking to sell it and then buy the Transformer Prime or the Iconia A700. I’ve submitted an app to the Blackberry AppWorld, so I can get a Playbook from there. I figure that if I sell both the Adam and the Playbook, I can make enough or almost enough to buy a decent Android tablet.

  • Viewsonic G-Tab. Regrettable buy that people here tried to warn me of. Got it on Woot. I would love to have a real Android tablet but probably wont buy one unless it’s ‚Č• 10”.

  • Went from Nook Color with CM7 to Acer Iconia A500 because I wanted a proper tablet with cameras and Honeycomb, but I don’t actually like the 10 inch form factor. Waiting for (hopefully) that pure Google 7″ tablet that’s supposed to be coming, but might end up with that little $250 Asus instead. The bonus is that I have less tech-inclined friends who will probably take the A500 off me for about what I’ll pay for the new one.

        Why ¬†is there only Droid stuff on DroidLife?? I had the first Xoom and I was happy, but not smooth enough. Loved my Acer 7 inch, but to small. Then iPad 2 and I enjoyed it at first but…..the restrictions and endless fun things that I like to play with were not allowed and actually prohibited. I mean simple stuff like maybe I’d like to have a different keyboard as my default keyboard for a while. I thought it was harmless and fun and my money, but noooooo bad bad dtray. You vill toe der line.
        Some apps are $6.99 and up, but I found same ones in the app market for free or $1.99. ¬†Nope, can’t do the lock-step and pay way too much for the “privilege” of making donations to the most valuable blah blah in the world.

        Now my transformer Prime was darn near Nirvana for me, Quad Core and ICS, but then I got to fondle the perfect and sexiest one of them all.  Xyboard 8.2

    I want a tablet, but it’s not really viable for me since I’ve got other priorities like a newer computer. I may be getting a Playbook if I can do Blackberry’s giveaway and that would hold me over until I get an Android tablet.

  • I used to have the Galaxy Tab, and liked it a lot, but the software was unbearable. Honeycomb was really unpolished and laggy. Not to mention the poor app selection. I’m waiting to see Google’s own tablet and as soon as developers start making apps for the tablet ecosystem.

      I’d love to try CM9 on my TouchPad, but I NEED to have Netflix working. ¬†I use it all the time. ¬†Bummer…guess I just have to wait a bit longer. ¬†Just wondering why you chose to jump on CM9 already.

    Q1: Yes.
    Q2: Yes, waiting to see what 2012 and 2013 and 2014 etc. have to offer.

    My Xoom made me a post laptop guy. At some point, I hope a Tablet makes me a post Windows guy.

    • Looking forward to this too.

      I play way too many games on a PC to be post-Windows just yet.

      • Understandable. I used to be big into PC gaming. Spent 4 years of life on WoW when it came out. I don’t know when it happened but I just don’t have time for gaming anymore. I’ve even tried to get excited about games lately but just don’t have the appeal they used to. I guess I’m getting old.

        • Hi

          I know why you gave up pc gaming. It was either you got a life or a girlfriend or moved out of your mom’s house or became an adult or got a job or stop smoking weed or decided to get off your ass.

          • It wasn’t any of those things. When I quit playing I had a girlfriend that was playing too. I actually moved out of my dads house a week after graduating high school(long before WoW came around) and have been employed all but a month of my life since I was 16. I haven’t ever smoked weed, not that I care if anyone else does, it just never appealed to me.

            Video games are a hobby like anything else. Everyone is going to die in a short span of time(not a threat, haha. Just reality of life). It doesn’t matter what your hobby is. It wont make any difference when you’re dead.

            I have other hobbies now, and they aren’t any more or less important/impactful/meaningful/dignifying than other peoples’ hobbies. Just different.

    • I am post windows too, its called linux¬†

      My Xoom (that now belongs to my uncle) made me a post laptop guy too. Especially now that I have the Transformer Prime. Definitely no need for a laptop.

  • I have a Xoom, but I’m already looking for something a lot thinner, better screen, and faster…hmm Galaxy Tab 11.1″ might just do…
