Couldn't care less about MicroSD or any other media card. But I do think it needs a USB port, I agree.

Make ridiculous claims like OP and they'll be responded to. This has nothing to do with hating apple. I can respect the sales of the device, and the fact that it's going to kickstart the tablet market, but it in no way brings computing to a whole new level. It's not magical, or revolutionary. It's a giant iPhone.

You want to talk bringing computing to a whole new level? I'll point you towards dedicated graphics cards, and multicore processing.

Err, I have Android, modded, and compared to my friends Jailbroken iPhone 3G? Android has all the apps he has, its just as fast, was cheaper (Same cost plan but I get more data and texts, etc) and is far, far more customizable.

With these kind of things, it seems like Apple will create the market (iPhone, iPad, what's next?) and then Android will make it good.

It is actually a new level.

It's just a level that isn't exactly a step forward. More like a step to the side.

Not really.
It has the same - albeit overclocked 400MHz - processor and tweaked interfaces to fit the large screen, which are frankly obvious choices. To drive the same iPod touch visuals on the larger and higher-res screen, you need a faster processor and to utilize that space, it has a tweaked interface.
Sorry but that's just what it is. Something like the Viliv X70 is much more familiar, much more feature-packed and much better looking.
I admit, having used one for some time, the screen is absolutely amazing and it has a major role in kicking off the tablet trend and bringing it back from the dead, but it does so at a very basic level. It does have a very fluid interface, but so what? So does the iPhone and iPod touch. The novelty wears off, at least for me it did.
OCN users are more about performance and functionality than form and design, hence the Apple hate.
It's not nearly as versatile as Android or Windows tablets, which is another reason.

Lady Gaga and Lily Allen have more talent than you'll ever have.

It's a revolution. It's a phenomenon. It's in my national newspaper every day since its launch! People are going absolutely nuts over it. If that doesn't make it magical, what does?

You can say it's a giant iPhone or iPod Touch all you want but you're nothing but misinformed and you look like a complete moron by making stupid statements like that.

It's dumb statements like yours that do nothing for threads like these. You post nothing valuable except stupid statements and do nothing for the thread.


What a great member of this community.
Getting offensive sure is a great way to get your point across

Loving the redundancy in the bolded part, btw.

Hate to argue but my dad bought one launch day and having used it extensively I tend to agree with liability. The device is nice but no where near as good as it has been hyped to be. And this is coming from a previous iPhone user and an avid android fan.

And comments about revolutionizing computing borderline make me gag.

Keep in mind this is coming from someone who likes apples computers.

Just look at the guys name, fanboy much? I also really enjoyed the lack of supporting details and redundancy in his post (probably a spoiled 12 year old w/ an ipad ).

But great job on Apple's part, they are doing it right (marketing wise). But when it comes to the actual product itself, I think the ipad is just an over-hyped over-priced shiny piece of hardware with no intellectual depth to it.
