I was kind of surprised to learn that Creative, the Japanese electronics manufacturer, has released a tablet that runs android. It literally got zero fanfare, by American media, bloggers, or anyone. Creative's tablet isn't meant to take on the Ipad, but it is interesting nonetheless. I'd love to see Creative produce a tablet that is aimed at being a high performance product, but for now, that will have to remain a wish.
I have primarily owned Creative brand mp3 players and have found them very reliable, and easy to use. My current mp3 player has been dropped multiple time, including once into a puddle, plus I spilled a coke on it once! Yet it still works faithfully, like a friend I can always count on.
