    I am wanting to get a Sony dash for the bedside and have been wonding what it would be like to take a Touchpad to bed with me insted!

    Would be great if those same existed on the touchpad like CRACKLE, NETFLIX, AMAZON ON DEMAND, able to stream movies, use as bedside radio, alarm clock....wake up to video or music, wake up to various info apps, market, weather etc. Bascially add the chumby apps or similar capability to the touchpad. That would really be cool and really get the touchpad into bed with us too!

    Sony Dash HID-C10 | Dash™ | Sony | Sony Store USA

    Sony is releasing a newer Dash...the Sony Dash 2 this year that has a battery.

    If you want a bedside device, the Dash is perfect. Got mine during one of Woot.com's many sales. It is NOT a tablet, and a lot of people bash it because it isn't a tablet, but it was never meant to be one. It's the coolest alarm clock you can own, and it just happens to be able to bring you information that is important to you when you wake up or when you're laying in bed.
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    TP is easier to turn on
    TP will not hog the covers
    TP does not complain about my snoring

    Wishful thinking, I dont know how much I actually need a tablet but hey why not?

    In reality the dash has gotten a year of updates that have really turned it into a nice bedside Alarm clock that can show me all kinds of things. It might be great to take the Pad to bed with us but for now its just a good idea.

    Eventually, wouldnt everyone want to take thier tablet to bed too....or will the tv get more like the Dash first?

    On the other hand...

    TP lacks crucial applications like Sandwich, Laundry and DishWash
    TP will never get hot for you (unless defective or UberKerneled to 3GHz)
    TP has fewer slots to plug your hardware in

    Ahhh...but:

    TP will not get cranky one week out of every month
    TP will not mind if you fool around with other devices
    TP will not take half your net worth if you throw it out (or UPGRADE)

    I think you're starting to convince me...

    TP doesn't mind if you touch it all the time
    TP wants you to plug it every night before going to bed
    TP will gently wake you up in the morning but won't mind if you rudely shut it up

    I believe it was reported its in the works. Not sure if it was official or not
    Apps: MyQ for Netflix (Phone/TouchPad), Giantbomb (Phone), Excavate (Reddit/Digg clients for TouchPad)
