    I am looking at a Motorola Xoom, any reports good or bad?? Other products??

    The only place for Apple is in cider as far as I'm concerned, so no ipad pump ups please.

    Good choice - hold off as long as you can as the prices will likely drop rapidly as more devices similarly spec'd are coming onto teh market ..

    A mate got an Acer Iconia 500 recently and I had a quick go at it. Was very fast. $600 including cover. It seems to have the same specs and a number of others. Just pick one with a low cost

    Don't know much about the non-apple tablets, but have heard that some are running windows........I'd avoid them as windows touch interface just leaves me frustrated (but that impression comes from some years ago) I'd look at the android ones if you're that anti-apple, the open source nature of the platform means a bazillion apps onto the future

    Outdoor Use for digital media?

    OK guys - maybe you can help me here....I am looking for a device like a laptop or a smart phone or a 'Pad or tablet' that will work in bright sunlight? I am a PE teacher and we are being asked to assess and report on our classes 'on the hoof' - rather than as we always have done - by writing stuff about our kids when we finish our lessons with them.
    Problem is - none of the things I have (a laptop and a smart-phone) work in bright sunlight?
    I use a Kindle - which is brilliant in the bright light - but is basically a read-only device.

    Any ideas?

    Bails
