Got Tablet? How do you use it with a DSLR?

I'm thinking of getting a tablet. Besides e-mail and web browsing, I'd like to use it with my cameras (5D2, T1i and P&S).

Do you have a tablet that you use with your camera and its files? Which tablet have you chosen and why? What can you do with it? Do you use it in stand alone and WiFi mode, or is a cell data plan a necessity?

I've seen a few that have a slot for reading SD cards, but none that accept CF or see an USB connection from a camera as a device that can be copied from.

Can you use the tablet to look at photos in the field, directly from the camera? Is it limited to just JPG and not raw? What about LiveView before the photo is taken.

All of the android apps thatI've heard of allow one to do minor "destructive" editing. Is there anythnig that fits into the Photoshop scheme?

Anything ese that I should be considering?

Many thanks for your input.
