    Can those in the know please tell me what new tablets or updates to current models are on the way and when they might be released?

    Sure it's a bummer when you know the new gear is somewhere round the corner, but in the tech industry, something new and amazing is always coming soon. You just have to buy something appropriate when you're buying...no point sitting around unless there's something you have to have that isn't available yet...

    who wants to buy a model that could be replaced or updated a month later. By the way Barry, saying Lenovo has one on the way doesn't really help me. Not to sound rude, but that's pretty much common sense. We all know the x60 tablet is on the way, but it seems "on the way" is october or later which really doesn't seem to be "on the way" that's more "in the future".

    In some cases we don't know a date and some we do. Since I am restricted by a verbal agreement with certain manufacturers, I can't "spill the beans" on the date. I will tell you this - Acer and Asus are the ones to watch for a possible new release any day now...

    I don't know if you can tell me, but...

    I need a tablet PC by August 6th. Should I continue to wait for the Asus R1F or should I just go ahead and order the Fujitsu T4210 now?

    Barry, perhaps you can tell us this without tell the maker and the date of release:

    What kind of tablets are on the way? What's on the horizon with tablets? How is the industry changing? What are some new innovations you expect to see by Christmas?

    Thanks for the help!!!

    That's a bit of an open statement rather than a question Ryan.

    Can you be more specific in what you would want from a screen?
