So many android tablets! So many android phones!
Seriously, as time goes by, the differentiation among android phones and tablets is becoming nil!
Good luck to all of them!

asus are trying to differentiate with the keyboard docks,padfone etc but ultimately they are all just going to be a slab of rectangle and consumers want sleek looking which means keeping the design minimalist as possible.theres only so many ways of making a minimalist slab of rectangle and they are bound to look the same...end of the day brand name and price is what will ultimately set the tablets apart..we have seen what happen to sony tablet p when they tried to make a tablet different.you got to stick with what is popular unless you can truly make a killer design.
