Archos Tablet, or iPad

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Guys, I do need some advice, I'm not really up to snuff on the whole mobile device thing, and I don't really know what devices to go for. My requirements are basically for Music, Movies and the such, with a large screen and plenty of battery life and space. I don't want to take my macbook pro with me everywhere so I decided I need something between an iTouch and a laptop. No netbooks please, only mobile touchscreen devices.

I have been looking at several devices including the iPad, the Archos 5 Internet, and Archos 7 Home Tablets, and several knockoff iPad Android clones. I would like to get one of the android devices seeing as I already have an iTouch,but I would buy an iPad if it came to it. I'm leaning towards the iPad as of now, as I already know my way around the iPhone OS, and am working towards becoming a full time apple developer, but I would on the other hand like to experience the Android OS, alebit most of the devices are not full implementations of it. So post your experience and reasons for these devices, otherwise I will be most likely to get an iPad, which is plenty of motivation for you guys to change my opinion.

NO NETBOOKS.

The ipad is extremely well done. Don't know about the archos tablet, but I loved playing with the ipad.

Those chinese androids are pretty meh to me. They are cheap though, so that's a plus. But at android 1.6, and a 533mhz processor, it's definitely cheaped out. You could wait till someone releases a quality android tablet (matter of time) and see how it stacks with the iPad.
