What you can see above is not all that much of a surprise, with the way Tablets of all shapes and sizes are selling, Carriers want to keep pumping them out and make money to upgrade/fix their networks. What this Tweet got me thinking about is what Tablets would you like to see launched here in Australia? Usually we miss most of the cool gadgets or they’re launched later here than anywhere else in the world. We already have a handful of Honeycomb Tablets available from different retailers, but it never hurts to have more, right? So in the comments let us know what Tablet or what specs you’d like to see on an upcoming Tablet. Let me get the ball rolling with what I’d like to see:

  • Quad-Core NVIDIA Project Kal-El (Tegra 3) CPU
  • 1920×1160 10.1″ Super TFT IPS Display
  • Android 3.1+ (obviously)
  • Thin and light, but have a solid build (less plastic)
  • Quadband HSPA+ / Wi-Fi a/b/g/n / Bluetooth 3.0
  • HDMI-out
  • 8000mAh Battery
  • Preferably below $700

Hey, a boy can dream!

+1 for the HTC 10″ tablet, but I’d settle for the Flyer being readily available…

More awesome please. Actually… what I REALLY want is a built in Wacom Intuos digitizer and a 12 inch screen so I can use it as a digital sketchbook (IPS panel and 1920×1200/1920×1080 res would also be epic, but a little extreme). That, and the supporting software – Corel Painter, Sketchbook Pro, Sketchbook Designer and a fully featured Photoshop

Yer¬†unfortunately¬†there isn’t anything overly good in terms of android but you can get most if not all of that from a windows tablet such as Asus EEE Slate EP121 (http://goo.gl/9tEWu)

only thing is it’s only 1280*800 and win7 (intel i5 so porting android would be a pain)

I’d really like a device that can adapt and change, which is why I like the look of the Asus Eee Transformer – it can be a tablet or plug into the keyboard base and be more like a smartbook/netbook/notebook. The next step would be a desktop dock that would allow you to use a full-size keyboard, mouse, and monitor; so HDMI output and USB would be important. My only concern with the Transformer is the software – is Android (even 3.0) really suitable for a netbook or even desktop computer? Being able to switch to a full(-ish) Linux desktop… Read more ¬Ľ

I want to see some snapdragon tablets, Nexus S still holds the top spot (Custom ROM // Quadrant benchmark) over all tegra 2 devices.

BTW for a good laugh have a look at this tweet

1920×1160? 1920×1200 would make more sense I think, assuming 10% of the vertical resolution for Honeycomb buttons, giving a viewing area of 1920×1080 for content. But I may be wrong.

You might be right, I just added on an extra 80 pixels like what’s on the current devices

I am liking the look of the Samsung 8.9 tbh… How about the rumoured nexus tab at the end of the year? Voda do have a history of nexus devices.

Personally i only want a wifi only tab so the above is great news

I’m famous again!
All because I stirred up Vodafone again about their tablet offerings. ¬†:)I have had a DM from them stating that there are a number of options coming soon including they’re looking into wifi only tabs for people who utilize their Android hotspot function on their phones. ¬†No specific models mentioned though.

Now that’s what I call dreaming, but yes all of the above. And true it’s really annoying that we have to wait sooooi long for ztuff that is released elsewhere.
