    Doing the device shuffle again:
    *New* ThinkPad i7 Helix pressed into daily service as of 4-Aug-2014 - phenomenal cosmic power?
    HP Elitepad 1000 - my former main device - do I keep this or my V8P as my sidekick now
    Dell Venue 8 Pro - my ultra mobile device (I cannot believe where I can stick this thing)

    I can't believe HP is releasing this tablet with those kinds of specs for
    the price. IMO ,the price: specs ratio does not seem to match.
    It seems to be under speced and over priced at almost all price points.
    Anyway....good luck HP.
    But then you never know I might consider it....!
    I'm also starting to wait for the Microsoft surface Pro and see if that has better options.

    If they had left the tablet at 8.x" like the Slate 500/2, upped the resolution to WXGA and adopted a 16:10 aspect ratio IPS display, they would have a real niche product. Probably worth $700 for a 64GB base model. As it is now, the elitepad 900 will be competing directly with a lot of 10" tablets that are going to be significantly less expensive. Both Lenovo and Dell will be offering coupons and discounts on their 10" tablets by the time the elitepad is released in late January. It looks like it's going to meet a lot of headwind. Then again, the Surface Pro should be shipping by then, offering a lot more power and performance for a bit more money.

    HP is counting on the jackets to make the ElitePad stand out. Personally, I think they should have put (at least) 1 USB port, 1 HDMI port and 1 SD Card slot on the slate itself. If, on the top of that, they offered a jacket with even more ports plus a battery, that would be a bonus. Well, an airline recently bought a bunch of ElitePads, so HP's jacket strategy might pay off. With the ElitePad, HP is focused on business users, so they don't if that device misses the Xmas rush.

    I'm glad that, even though there isn't any "perfect" device for me yet, there are a few that are "good enough".

    Exactly...this should have been the minimum...plus 4G!
