Hi, thanks for all the replies. I have a history of Windows devices spanning CE 2.0 devices, various windows phones and a Samsung q1 - so Im well at home here.

I was looking at the Series 7 but I think circa 1000 is a lot of money when we are expecting some exciting new hardware in the next 12 months.

My plan B was to spend a few hundred on something like a Archos 9 (or a RM Slate 100 or even the Inspiron Duo N550) just to get a feel for the touch OS and get a little bit of inspiration.

Does anyone have anything good/bad to say about these devices?
