I keep seeing these articles on Gizmodo and TechCrunch and other places talking about companies that have tablet-style computers running various flavors of windows, linux, and android, in some sense of trying to say "we beat Apple to market" or something. Are these things actually for sale? I mean, I would buy an Android tablet long before I'd buy an iPad. There was one that was supposed to be a netbook running Windows when it was attached to a keyboard and Android when you detached the keyboard, and it could even do this in a hot-swap mode. I've been googling around, maybe my google-fu is bad today, but I can't find where these products actually exist other than on some trade show floor.

I don't think any of these products are on the market until summer, actually. Moved to Hardware Discussion.

There's not a lot currently for sales, most worth-buying are coming soon.

Here's a few links if you don't mind reading a bit, pick the one interesting you:
