    True - stay away from the MID tablets running 1.6. HSTouch looks ok on it, but the lags are noticeable.

      yes it was. I haven't looked for an Android client and I thought I saw some post asking if it would be supported a few months ago. (Must have been old posts.)

        I agree that they limit your ability (can't run much in the background), but the iPhone, iPad, iPod really do FEEL fast. It's about resource allocation.

        I have mobile 6.1, run spbmobile shell. I can tell when I've got too many things open in Opera, as mobile shell "pops" across the screen when I drag my finger...but when Opera isn't hogging all the resources, it runs 90% as well as an iPhone's touch interface.

        --Dan
        All the more reason to spring the extra $100 for the iPad. It does what it's designed to do brilliantly. The other point is that there are a ton of mounting options for the iPad. With dozens of different Android tablets out there soon, there'll be less incentive for a manufacturer to tool up production for low volume sales (of a specific brand/model)

        I had HSTouch on a WM6 device. Almost threw it out the window on cab ride back from the airport. Went home, dropped off luggage and straight to AT&T store to buy iPhone. A few weeks previous on trip to Napa, every time I wanted to surf web, look at a map, etc. I pinched my Wife's iPhone. i haven;t used Android so I can't comment on that .

          Apple showed what could be done with some tight programming/OS offering a very no frills head end and making the device thin and pleasing to the eye.

          Apple sold many Ipads effectively marketing it. There's not much meat to it other than a large flat and thin LCD tablet with an OK CPU and a little bit of memory and a well written very tight OS.

          Historically over the last 10 years there have been many attempts at the small web based tablet and most of them really never caught on.

          Check out this link starting around 2001 or so. Its about an Epod. I had one. (BTW pete is me on that forum).

          http://www.linux-hacker.net/cgi-bin/...age=0&Session=

          An effective OS, fast CPU and some memory plus low cost like new gen Android tablets will have a much larger market share of the HA folks that really wanted the functionality of an IPAD but were not going to pay for it.

            Too small to what? It works brilliant for HStouch, surfing, email and games, and that's basically all I expect from these devices...

              Rupp, you're so cute. You say that a 7" is too small, but in another thread you recommend the 7" HST Touchscreen

                The HST Touch screen is a wall mount device that is PERFECT for HSTouch but for a hand held PC it needs to be much larger for surfing and the like. Thanks for the compliment though

                  Well, that's a matter of opinion.

                  I like my 7" Android. And it fits in the inner pocket in my coat. Try that with an iPad.

                  If I need something bigger, I have a laptop. And my laptop is only 150 grams heavier than an iPad (and more usefull).

                          I just dug up (haven't used it in about 5 years) my first "in-wall" small 7" Touch Screen VGA monitor. It was an automotive style with a clam shell (to fit in the back of a head rest for passenger view). I've since switched over to 8" 4:3 and 9" wide screen. The 7" Mimo is the same but the depth is much thinner. The 7" has three cables out of it from the back (USB, VGA and a combo analogue / power cable). The "clam" shell and the cables coming out of the back of the monitor made for easy mounting. You still needed to cut a hole for the clam shell to give it an "in wall look". The 8" 4:3 VGA LCD touchscreen is a bit more difficult for mounting in that all three cables come out of the bottom of the monitor between the front and the back. No real easy way to mount it unless you mount it on the surface. Recently found a smaller/thinner 12" VGA Industrial style (not really pleasing to the eye) and having the seller made a 100mmX100mm vesa mount on the back it it. The case is all metal and involves disassembly. The VGA, Power and Serial (USB) are all recessed in the back of the monitor out of the way of the new proposed VESA mount See what it looks like when he's done.

                              Funny the comments are more related to the music than the tablet.

                              This tablet does have a faster CPU...but looks like many users are not too happy with it other than the $160 USD price for it....

                              I have considered this one a few times in the last couple of weeks.
