Unless it has change (not glass top layer instead of a plastic one) there is larger one than this one being peddled. This one looks cheap. I was almost tempted to buy it.

Did anyone here purchased one? I did see over 2500 sold.

But this is not what I had originally posted. This tablet half of the model is not running Android OS 2.1 it's Android OS 1.6. When I had seen it on HSN after 12M. The electronic host was showing the camera/video camera off. I could see the delay in movement.

I would imagine that this is a somewhat limited, specialist machine. Someone pointed out that you can have your ebook open on the ebook side and make notes and do all sorts of good stuff on the colour netbook side. So possibly ideal for students and others who need to make notes on a book.

I know, several e-readers have a note-taking function, but the one on my Iriver, for example, requires that I leave the ebook to make a note. I don't know if other e-readers are different, but that rather defeats the object. By the time I've got to the note-taking function, I've forgotten what I want to write!

But this one works in conjunction with the other. Both sync up together in other words

Well the main site had different specs than for what was listed for the HSN model. So HSN reports the Android OS is 1.6 and not Android OS 2.1. But they don't even mention that on the air nor on the first page. You have to dig that info out. There is no mention of the CPU? Most of the Android OS 1.6 uses VIA WM8505 CPU which is rated at 300MHz. I am not saying that's in this Tablet. But that would need to be clarified?

Originally data was that this was 3lbs and 16 hour battery. Now it's 1.3lbs and 6 hour battery. Still I going to take pass on because;

1. Android OS 1.6
2. CPU is unknown
3. Price is just too high for 1.6 OS

See now look at this: Toshiba Dual Screen PC Folds Like a Book



Toshiba’s Libretto W100
2x 7-inch multi-touch displays
Intel Pentium 1.2 GHz processor
62 GB solid state drive
1-megapixel camera
2 GB of memory
Windows 7
weighs about 1.8 lbs

If this was selling for that $399.99 with the payments would be a better deal. They on HSN need to tell the public what the CPU and not hide the information about the Android OS version which is in the FAQ section.

Perhaps you should educate yourself a bit about the Edge devices before casting aspersions on the company...hey, maybe even here on MR:
