So far as I can see, dozens of new "tablets" or whatever you want to call them yet I don't see one that can be bought yet outside of the IPad [talking about newly hyped stuff]

Show me a place to order the MS Courier, Entourage Edge, any of the ASUS tablets.

Sure! The Edge can be ordered at: http://www.entourageedge.com/devices/entourage-edge.html

I got my Asus T91MT from the Tiger Direct/Comp USA store in Naperville, IL, but it's available on the site: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=5618113&sku=A50-08906&srkey=asus%20t91mt

The Courier is the only one you named that is still a concept, not an actual product available for order.

Also, how about these?

https://store.archos.com/product_info.php

http://iiviewpad.com/specs.php

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000225EQQ/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&seller=

Or in a larger form factor:

http://shop.lenovo.com/us/notebooks/thinkpad/x-series-tablet

http://laptoping.com/toshiba-portege-m780.html

Or was the original post just great bait? :-)

Probably. But I can't stand it when they don't even bother to search first.

Vaporware isn't quite the right term either. New stuff that hasn't come out yet or even stuff that's been delayed isn't really vaporware. Vaporware is stuff that's been delayed so much it's basically been forgotten -- stuff that will probably never come out.

Most of the items listed by the posters were netbooks, and, you can order anything but when will it be delivered?
I noticed in passing that Plastic Logic has now stopped taking online orders.

I'm talking real tablets and, leaving aside the Archos A5IT which I have and is a real POS [go to archosfans.com to see the number of dissatisfied users] I still only see the IPad

You're just trolling now. Only the Asus linked above is a netbook, and even on that the screen rotates and folds flat into a tablet configuration.

I think we'll just take over your thread and use it to explore the possibilities that do certainly exist.

My first reaction would be to hold up a "Do Not Feed The Trolls" sign. Note the misuse of an emotionally charged word (somewhat anyway), lack of evidence of research, and if you look at the post history, you will see that this person already owns a tablet!

There are tablets no longer for sale, tablets currently for sale, and tablets that will be for sale eventually. There are big ones and small ones. Pure ones and convertible ones. Cold ones, hot ones, and just right ones. There is no need to panic.
