Can you have information on tablets as well as phones? Reviews, news, etc. They're pretty much larger phones, and being able to look up specs and reviews for them here would make things a lot easier.

I'll tell you right now: won't happen anytime soon.

I very much appreciate the feedback, but I feel differently.

Tablets may run on the same networks, and run similar software, and even have most of the same "guts" as phones, but that's all technical details, not the end-user experience.

Blu-ray players have the same guts as a basic desktop PC these days, and they hook up to a screen and network. But that doesn't mean PCs and Blu-ray players belong in the same category.

A tablet is really a very different type of device compared to a phone, with different use cases and therefore very different design criteria.

When you try to blur the line, it doesn't work well. Look at the Dell Streak 5; not very successful. A failure in the market, actually.

OK that's cool. Just wish I had a site I trusted more while looking up on what kind of tablets are out there..

Sprint gives us CNET, but the computers we use at our site are teh suck, and can't support it.
