Google announced that they will soon launch their answer to the Apple iPad; The Android-based Google gPad. I'm going to wait for it. Sure there are other Linux-based pads available or in the works but I want the gPad or GooglePad or whatever the heck they call it by launch time. I foresee it in the $300 to $400 US range so that it's affordable and ready to serve. Are you waiting for it as well?

I want a "pad" computer, an electronic clipboard or however you want to think of one of those little slabs of electronic crack. I want it. I need it. It will make my life complete.

I need for it to have the following extras:

2 USB Slots
1 SD Card Slot
Wireless Networking
Built-in Camera
Built-in Microphone
Built-in Speaker(s)
A Scratch-resistant Shell and Screen
A Long-life Battery (user replaceable)
A Stylus

That's it. Make it so, Google.

And it needs to be under $500 with accessories.

Thanks. Get right on that, will ya?

What do you think of the prospect of a Google Pad computer?
