One thing is for sure -- the Amazon Fire is definitely going to help drive the price down of its competitors. It should look especially attractive to regular Amazon users too, especially those with Prime since you can watch so many movies from it. Kindle users have the benefit of using it to read too using their book library.

I was about to buy the Fire but then I realized that it represent everything I don't want from an Android tablet. The small storage size, the lack of expandable memory, the lack of the Android market place, the inability to use the stock android OS.

If I wanted to live in a gated ecosystem then I would buy an iPad 2.

Doesn't it have unlimited cloud storage though?

IMO the best out of this lot is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 but I think the Xoom is the best android tablet on the market as it offers hdmi out usb controller support and will get 4.0 android.

I do like the Idea of tablets but I still think they are a long way from replacing desktop and laptop pc's because of the limited web browsing and apps.

I think this may change when windows 8 is out next year though. But Tablets are here to stay that is for sure.

Samsung i9100 is the dual-core Galaxy 2, sequel to the Galaxy S?

Along with a Sony Ericsson Anzu, the James Bond of cellphones -- alias Eldar Murtazin -- claims to be playing with a Samsung GT-i9100 right now, calling it the "Galaxy 2" and saying it's "so technically advanced" thanks in part to a dual-core processor. It seems like a long shot that this would be the Cortex-A9-based Orion since chips and development boards are just now being sampled -- but considering how far in advance Murtazin tends to score phones, we can't rule anything out.
