@mawcc: Actually the reviews I have read have been good (7-8/10 is a good score). The biggest ding they are giving it is the lack of apps. I personally think that is a silly thing to knock it for since that is just a temporary problem. It has done well in the reviews because the people want to hate it because it is not an iPad and it is a quality piece of hardware.
The dumbest review I have read was the Gizmodo one where they gave it a 2. Gizmodo hasn't really had any credibility in a long time anyway.
