Beware the htc flyer. At first glance, it seems like it would be a good choice, but...it won't do what you want. First it's android, not windows. Even worse is it's the phone version of android not the honeycomb tablet version. That means pen support is abysmal at best. It's not a painting device. Even so, the painting apps on andriod are worse than the iPad. I think it's a niche spot even more so that a tablet pc, but small pressure sensitive tablets could be very nice. Samsung is supposed to be releasing a 5.3 inch pressure sensitive phone that runs android. It's called the galaxy note, but again, it isn't the tablet version of android so pen support isn't good. The whole thing seems such a mess. I don't mind the bt keyboard extra as long as it does what I need, but trying to use the touch keyboard can't be as good as it is on my iPad. I can type pretty fast on that. Sounds like the ram is no good. You could call the store and maybe they'll mail you a replacement?
