So, Verizon has announced pricing and a release date for the first serious iPad contender. $599 will get you a contract-free(!!) 7-inch Android powered tablet with a beautiful AMOLED screen. Add $20/mo for 1GB of data (higher tiers exist), and you've got one hell of a toy in your pocket. So the question is, who's getting one? I am 97% certain that I am. I'll probably use it mostly on WiFi at the house, so I'd be fine with the 1GB/mo of data). I'd like to seriously look at how well it works as an alternative to a laptop. I'm sick of traveling with my laptop to use for e-mail and web browsing, and not much else.
