Another problem is the higher overhead of a full operating system and hard drive which will suck up battery power. These "tablets" are more like laptops and the iPad is more like a bigger iPhone...which is not a bad thing.

There are large capacity solid state hard drives.

Yes, you're right. I made an assumption that if it was going to be price-competitive with the iPad and offer 250GB it would have a standard HD but now I realize they must mean solid state and higher end priced models.
