I caved

I am blogging today from my Android tablet. This is something I never thought I would own, believe me. I couldn't see the point of it. I didn't need my email that close to me. I didn't need it for entertainment. I didn't need it.

I hereby eat crow.

(Gross.)

The 10" Acer Iconia won me over. Why? Because it works. And by that I mean it accomplishes real work - this tablet can create and edit documents and spreadsheets, and it seamlessly integrates with my Google account and calendar. 

And that's why I bought it.

And love it.

And will nevermore (quoth the raven) be without it.

PS - the tablet doubles as an e-reader too - now that's entertainment!

I'd like one ... but I just can't bring myself to spend the $ (yet). ;-)

Hope you enjoy yours!

Yeah, i think i'll be giving in too and getting a tablet. It is good to hear that the things really do have versatility, which was something i was wondering - it was pretty clear that they offered loads of entertainment opportunities but usefulness is necessary to make me fork over!

I'm holding out for an iPhone and iPad. I'm a Mac convert. Sorry.
