2) another criteria is the ability to charge via a standard USB port so no proprietary charger is required. So what if it takes eight hours to charge while I'm sleeping.

3) My third criteria is dual core CPU so it's a bit faster and more responsive if multiple things are happening and browsing is a bit better.

4) Bluetooth so I can do more things with external devices. Not sure yet what but hey... Maybe convenient Skyping with a Bluetooth headset. <shrug> External keyboard?

5) Others may want cameras. Not a big deal for me.
Again, BlackBerry Playbook matches all your requirements: 7" 1024 600 screen, charges with any USB, dual core 1GHz CPU, Bluetooth works great all day to my BlackBerry Bold giving me 3G connectivity and a remote keyboard and trackpad, 5mpix rear and 3mpix front 1080p cameras. Old included Kobo app...

And it is QNX so no sleep of death... Though the March update fixed SOD on my Vox.

Too bad RIM may not make hardware for much longer. At least they're still cheap!
