  1. I don’t think rooting ur tab will be as big a bonus as rooting your phone. Although I’ve never use motoblur, ill give it a chance. I’m sure someone will break it, if its bootloader is indeed locked like the X and 2 Droids. Anyone know about the bionic’s bootloader yet?

  2. Hmm.. a 32gb $700 quirky android tablet.. or a $700 laptop?

    Considering a gaming laptop would be 1000x beter than ANYTHING a tablet could do. I’ll take the gaming laptop w/ 5650+ dx11 graphics, thank you. Nice try anyway. Price it right.. ($350) and you might have something there. Motorla is on drugs, just like HP, and (I hope not)Samsung if they think they can overlap laptop pricing for 7-10″ tablets.
