    I don't know what the 'reviewers' reviewed, but so far it's a much better experience than what they portrayed.

    I just watched 4 full screen 1080p Youtube video's (including Jack Sparrow (feat. Michael Bolton)), with no jitter, frame loss, or any complaints. Smoooooooth and beautiful.

    I fired up Google Music and streamed my music without a hitch. It does sound very good!

    webOS has been great - a few little lags, but nothing major.

    Keyboard is great for number row alone!

    It does not feel like I'm going to drop it because of the finish.

    My one complaint is the cut-outs for the speakers. But that is solved with a case or skin.

    I'll play some more and provide more impressions later.

    Thats good to here. Im personally going tab 10 but its good to here that my webos bros aren't left in the dark on the tablet goodness.

    Question does google music continue to play if you leave the card and go to the calendar or another browser card?

    Yes - it does continue to play and while in standby (screen darkened).

    Track just changed and the lock screen popped up...

    I am glad that you like it thus far!

    If I may ask what were the lags that you have experienced?

    Videos jitter when switching back and forth from full screen to window-size. Worked fine as full screen for me, though.

    I haven't had a problem with the finish or sharp edges either.

    I do miss my Pre gestures for going back and forward.

    I'm pretty ****ed about the kindle app not being live. That's what I really wanted a tablet for in the first place. I'm sure it'll be live soon enough.

    Apps have left me wanting a bit. Netflix would be nice, as would an epub reader, facebook chat of some sort (preferably just through the messaging app), and I'd definitely love some navigation software.. but nav software is probably not going to be a reasonable hope.

    Sometimes the activity indicator slows - but it was during initial loading, maybe it was syncing in the background. I'm going to keep on watching and see how it goes...

    Yes it does. In another thread, one of the guys posted a video of it. He must have had 20 other cards open, would shrink google music to a card, put it in a stack, go to other cards, etc & music never stopped.

    Here is the link to the thread:

    Same here...

    Youtube - perfect playback

    Hulu - also smooth and not hesitation

    ComingSoon.net - I'm having no problem with FLASH!

    Few problems with some newer apps ported or recreated for the TP like Precentral.net (unofficial) is kinda buggy and I'm having problems with Precentral.net new interface in general and not acknowledging that I'm logged it to comment, thumbs up, or othewise.

    Only problem so far, moving large files via USB...very slow and may have other problems coming from my Mac. I really need the ability to Stream video files (like DLNA, or maybe something like PlayOn, etc). Time to experiment. Sorli...

    Yup - funny the only site I had a problem with was logging into precentral.net!

    I'm sure there are other little things out there - but all can be fixed with software so far that I've seen.
