Is anyone using a Tablet computer on a regular basis for image presentation, storage, etc.?
I'm looking at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1", or the Asus Transformer TF 300 10.1", rather than the I-pad as they have more business uses. Has anyone had experience with either of these, and if so, which would you recommend? Particularly from the standpoint of screen quality (resolution, brightness, etc) and business apps, such as Polaris Office

Can't help but interested in the replies you will get. At the moment I take my laptop to show potential customers my work and customers their images. I was thinking about the ipad for this purpose when a friend, who is an accountant, told me he had just purchased the ipad but thinks in my case a tablet would be more appropriate. (Discuss)
I recently bought a tablet and ruled out an iPad as I wanted a widescreen display. Went with Samsung in the end and very pleased with it.
Actually, I have just started looking into Tablets since the introduction of the somewhat larger, 10.1" screen devices which would be easier to carry but still make a better presentation, so I've been doing a lot of research. At this point, the Asus TF300 is my prime candidate, since it has a quad-core processor and an optional Keyboard dock that actually turns it into a laptop for better productivity (thus the term "Transformer", I assume) or it can be used separately for the purposes you mentioned; all at a VERY attractive price. I have also JUST discovered that Adobe offers a product called Photoshop Touch, specifically for tablets. I'll be doing a LOT more checking into that. Has anyone used it?
Hi, Pat -
Which Samsung did you get?
Have got Photoshop Touch on my iPad, I haven't been using it for long and am still playing with it, but it does appear quite good, but it's not going to replace the real thing! There is a slight price difference though as PhotoshopTouch is only £6.99,
This is the one I got

Would you compare it to Photoshop Elements?

Thanks, Pat. This is the earlier iteration of Galaxy Tab 2 that I'm considering. The capabilities of these little devices amaze me.
I looked at the Samsung (as I have that phone) but I chose the Asus instead because of the IPS screen and the transformer keyboard dock feature

Thanks, Chris -
The Keyboard dock feature will be one of the major deciding issues for me as well, coupled with the more powerful processor (quad-core 1.2 GHz Invidia Tegra 3.0 with 1 GB SDRAM and 32 GB internal memory on the ASUS vs a Dual Core 1GHz Processor with 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory on the Samsung)
Hmm - sounds like I'm reaching a decision. How do the the screen resolution, color rendition and brightness compare?
I personally opted for the sony s1 tablet due to its 32 gb ram 1gb NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2 mobile processor and usb port. The most useful thing for me however, aside from the ability to carry my slide shows that I use for lectures in the device, was the full SD card slot. The SD card coupled with Android photo backup allows me to upload the Raw files from both my 550D and panasonic dmc-g3 onto the device and send them via WIFI to my Email or home networked hard drive. Or if I just want to view them on a larger screen when travelling I can convert the Raw files to Jpeg using my tablet.
Handy little things these Tablets.
The Asus has a gorgeous screen, it's bright, sharp and colourful. It's as good as any other tablet I've seen and better than many. Due to the IPS panel the viewing angle is far superior to most other tablets. The dock is a great idea as I can use a real keyboard and real mouse when I want to do some proper work.
I would definitely want to be able to use a wireless mouse with a tablet if I got one. Will any tablet accept these, or only specific ones?
Carabosse, I believe that any tablet with blue tooth will accept a wireless keyboard and mouse so long as the system is running android 3.1 Honeycomb or above. Asus make a mouse specifically designed for this purpose: android bluetooth mouse
