I thought it would be interesting to track tablet adoption among DBSTalkers. This is not a thread intended to discuss the relative merits of one tablet platform vs. another, simply a thread to count what folks here are buying and using.

Note that the poll differentiates between Nook and Fire tablets vs. Android tablets. Please check all that apply, and TIA for voting!

Also, if you don't currently own, please only vote if you plan to buy by the end of December. Thanks!

Kindle e-reader and iPad2 here, BTW.

EDITED TO ADD: If you're waiting for an iPad 3, please vote "Other".

I probably should have added a "WAITING FOR iPAD3" category to vote on. Maybe folks can vote "Other" for that?

iPad2 (gave iPad to my husband), HP Touchpad, & Kindle Fire (gave Kindle to my husband). I like them all, though am waiting for ICS to come to the Touchpad & then I might use it more. The Fire would replace the iPad2 as my surfing tool while watching TV because it is a good size (fits nicely on the table between our recliners) but it is a little heavy & cumbersome to hold sometimes.

Still love our iPad and iPad2. While not 'waiting' for the 3, we'll probably grab on and re-purpose / resell the original iPad.

We don't own the hotel . . . We don't know when we check out!

I regret being slow on the draw for one of those 32GB models that were being closed-out at $149. By the time I made up my mind, they were gone. :nono2: Would have gotten a lot of use here as a simple browser-email-ebook device.

I have the Xoom 4G and I also use a Chromebook, which technically is not a tablet but I use it more now in situations where I was using a Xoom over a laptop/netbook.

Let Stuart know what you come up with for the kids. He's looking for a cheap one to play with as well! :)
