Kevin and I kicked off MobileTechRoundup show #234 with a discussion of the Apple iPad 2 and my plans to get one. If you read my iPad hunt post you can see that best laid plans don't always work out. We both tested out the Motorola Xoom and are not pleased with the Android 3.0 experience at this time. Kevin had a great post on GigaOM about tablet pricing that we closed out our tablet section with. We then talked about Windows Phone 7 and our frustrations and thoughts regarding the Nokia $1 billion payment.

    Once you have your device get it hooked up with the Sling box technology. I work for DISH Network and this has allowed you to take your TV on the road with you. Now get what you pay for when your not home to fully enjoy that paid subscription. I use mine all the time even went to Mexico last month and TV everywhere worked great on my iPad and my wife loved it on her Smartphone. Contact DISH for more details on TV everywhere.
