I have been slow to upgrade my tablet from my Viewsonic g-Tablet to an Android 4.0/4.1 device. My primary hesitation was to see what Google would present (a 7-inch tablet, really?), I just spent about $1000 on new desktops for the office, and that sort of blew my “toy” budget, and I wanted to evaluate between several brands, namely Asus and Acer.

Well, today I finally pulled the trigger on a new model, and I splurged to add a keyboard.

I guess you’d like to know what model I chose, so here’s a look:

In case you’re not too familiar with the many different Android tablet models, this one is the Asus Transformer Infinity (and get more information here). While I’m satisfied with the Acer models, particularly the Acer Iconia A700, the debate rested on one thing: price. I was able to package the tablet, keyboard, and case for under $700, which was above my maximum price, but approved by the Mrs. The tablet comes tomorrow, so expect a full review.

Oh, and Randy, I’ll contact you when I’m back from the extended vacation for a “test drive.”

I would like to know, what you sue for case management? or, how do you mange your case files?

    Benjamin, I use PracticeMaster. The program got released before we were even talking Android devices and mobile computing, so I went with a good cost alternative for me. I think if I were to go again at this point, I would adopt and use a program like Clio or Rocket Matter. Since both are cloud-based systems, they offer great mobile access too. My system requires VPN connections or me to sign on using LogMeIn.
