Because typing anything longer than a short web address is a huge PITA on software keyboards.

I just picked up an Asus Transformer; the keyboard and mouse makes the tablet actually useful as a laptop replacement, particularly in RDP environments. Not to mention the ability to dual-boot Ubuntu is a very nice perk of rooting.

Then, when you want a tablet you disconnect and walk away! Plus the keyboard dock charges the tablet...

(And in 2010, Cisco licensed "iOS" to Apple. So there won't be any suits there, either.)

Seriously? Way ahead how? The iPad isn't even running an OS designed for tablets. How can Apple be ahead when they've done almost nothing with the OS? Its still designed for small screened devices.

The closest competition to the iPad 2 is the original Galaxy Tab running Froyo. Sure it has a faster processor and is a bit bigger, but feature wise they're pretty close.

I don't know how you can think an iPad is on the same level with devices that boast flash, SD expansion, USB support, folding keyboard attachments, full mouse support, pen digitizers, hdmi output, and who knows what else.


When you think about it that way, the iPad is barely even a tablet. Its a PMP with a large screen. If not for the apps it would be absolutely nothing.

The iPad is not leaps and bound better the other android tabs. The asus transformer is way better, and I got an iPad and that's collecting dust now. The iPad, doesn't have an external storage slot, USB, flash, I can go on...

Your right it's not a rip off of wimo, it's a rip off of the palm OS.

Even the galaxy tab 10.1 destroys the ipad in specs, so sayin the ipad is way ahead is foolish.

actually your wrong
technically the iPad2's A5 SoC is miles ahead of Tegra2.

But....remember Tegra2 is nearly 1.5~ years old now.
I don't support apple at all...but just stating facts.....shouldn't go around blasting the wrong facts.

anyway......I used to dream of having iphone....but I've defected to android ever since it came out and I read about apple's innovation crushing methods

Funny too how he sees Honeycomb as a copy-pasta of iOS. Here, take a look:



iPad iOS

- Enlarged version of the iPhone UI, no big difference with a majority of homescreen elements
- Interface still governed by a static icon grid
- Weak customization options
- Same notifications system as with the iPhone (even in the upcoming iOS 5, drop-down notifications will be the same on iPhone and iPad)









Android 3.0 Honeycomb

- Tablet-oriented version of Android, compared to 2.3 Gingerbread
- Entirely revamped UI with holographic design, more akin to a desktop OS
- Same customization potential with Android phone versions, with support for more widgets like the Stacks system
- Different implementation of notifications (side panel as opposed to drop-down menu)
