Tablets and Pads

I'd love to see us use some tablets or pads at school.
The Eee Pad MeMO by Asus is a tablet and a phone combined that will be coming out this summer. The device comes with a Bluetooth headset with mic for receiving calls. It has a 7 inch touch screen and two cameras.  One camera is on the front (1.2 megapixel) for making video calls and one on the back (5 megapixel) with an LED flash. It also has a stylus for taking notes and drawing in the included apps, Media Note and Painter.

The Motorola Xoom Tablet is another good tablet soon to be released...maybe in April.  It is larger with a 10.1 in. screen. It has 32 GB of internal memory and a great battery that will last for up to 10 hours. Again, it has a 5 megapixel camera on the back and a 2 megapixel camera on the front for video calls.  When it is released it will be 3G with Verizon, but soon to handle 4G networks.

And then there's the Toshiba:
