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.
