32MB storage or a keyboard?
No question - keyboard all the way.
I mean, just how much storage does a tablet PC need?
Online retailer Clove has priced up the eagerly anticipated Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime - a tablet will not only serve up a slice of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but also Nvidia's five-core Tegra 3 chip. Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime Clove wants £551 for the 10in tablet, which incorporates 64GB of solid-state storage, …
"Why does Britain have to pay £551 for the 32GB version + keyboard when in the states they pay around £400 ($499 + $149). "
If you take a look at that, about two thirds of it is British VAT with the "rip-off" being about fifty quid or so. I do not defend *that* mark-up but it is not quite so bad as its seems.
My money's on the new models being the same price as the iPad 2.
The bigger question will be if they keep the iPad 2 model going at a cheaper price point, or just sell off the existing stock.
(my guess - if the new model has a higher res screen then the 2 isn't going anywhere)
Whatever happens it'll be a PITA for Samsung, Sony, Moto etc etc...
I think that's a "it's not out yet, so we'll make some money on pre-orders" price. Won't surprise me if it drops to around £500 once Amazon et al get hold of it (32GB with keyboard).
Rumours are that the iPad 3 will be out a couple of months later, though...hmmm...decisions, decision...
I mean, not only have they written shite ASP.Net code, they've not even configured IIS to hide the errors from users. No way are *they* getting my credit card details, even if I had £550 to blow on a fondleslab!
