    Best thing about this device: buttons!

      Or worse, depends on how you look at it.

        Anything’s better than capacitive “buttons”.

        • Jdog25

          In your opinion.

            After the 30,000th time someone goes “oops, i pressed something!” when you’re just trying to show him something, you might see what I mean.

            But yes, that’s just my opinion.

            Capacitive buttons are horrible. I cannot stand them.

            Imagine how many times that’s happened to PlayBook owners with it’s unmarked capacitive bevel.

      I know everyone has their preferences…. and accidentally hitting these physical buttons might cause a few headaches (not really tho)…. but really…. who is going to argue that options are a bad thing? That is the whole point of android devices…..

    Enter the $99 jokes

  • Clarence Chow

    sorry already have a touchpad

  • Abel G

    meh, i just ordered the hp 32GB touchpad for $219, its still higher than the $149 clearance price, but still low enough to say F it and buy it. I think the sweet spot for tablets is $300-$500.
