I said a while ago that I really wanted a tablet for reading comics on. And one finally came out that fulfilled my specifications: 13" diagonally, widescreen, and reasonably priced. The Archos FamilyPad 2
cost me £250 and runs ComicRack
very happily. As well as Angry Birds and World Of Goo, of course.
The screen is not amazing - the viewing angle is less than I'd like, and the resolution is only 1280x800. But that's high enough that I can't see pixels when it's sitting in my lap, and will happily do for the moment - when retina-quality displays are uniquitous in a few years I'll upgrade.
