Android tablet history from "what can I get for

Current Android "Slider SL101" is very nice, albeit a bit bulky because of the built-in keyboard;

Then a Samsung 7" version 2, which is outstanding, EXCEPT the Android OS puts the "buttons" (back, home, running apps) in the MIDDLE not the ends or corners, making them quite annoying inconveniente in landscape mode (as if "no user acceptance testing"). Perhaps that's the way it is with open source, but I'd think Samsung could do better! like "OMG, we can't release this tablet that makes you MOVE IT to get your thumbs close enough to hit the "back" icon!

I bought a cheap ($59) bluetooth keyboard to use with the Samsung, as I miss the keyboard particularly when IMing.
