I think these are in two distinct categories. The MyTab is a phone
etc. and can fit into my pocket (even with a 7" screen). The Iconia
is a lot larger and heavier, isn't a phone and is more of a small
laptop. You could use a MyTab (with Android 2.2) to tether an Iconia
via bluetooth or WiFi... (to get Internets on the go).
