    Umm, interchangeable back plates make this unique? I’m more interested in the fact that it supports fullsized hdmi and usb connections and has an SD card slot.

    Isn’t 7 hours battery life a bit substandard for a 10″ tablet?

    Isn’t the xoom supposed to be 499 now? How is the 32 gb version of this competitive?

    There are so many diff tablets right now, who really cares? They’re not laptops/netbooks, they’re also not phones, just in between, who wants these things?

    They better drop the price on that if it’s going to be a 8GB Wifi only model…

    There is far more to this tablet than replaceable covers. The battery is user replaceable. And it features full sized HDMI port to connect to TVs or monitors using regular HDMI cables, a full USB 2.0 port for adding in peripherals like USB keyboards or mice and a full sized SD card slot.

    Ah, my favourite tablet is here now. Just waiting a hands on evaluation and off I will go to give my money to Toshiba 🙂

      Substandard and unimaginative Sure. I’m going to buy this.

    Don’t buy it. I bought some and crab. It just don’t open the applications.
