Also, from personal experience of using Android and iOS, most applications just run smoother on iOS. Android still runs ridiculously fast, but most applications just feel more 'right'.
While you may be trying to seem unbiased, you're not. It's quite obvious you're not a fan of the iPad.
Whatever happened to keeping quiet if you don't have anything nice to say.
Anyhow, I'm excited for the new iPad 2. I was already considering one, but if it has these new features coming to it, I'll definitely invest in the new one. Would be nice to see a 128GB one, but that's just a dream
1) I never brought up Android, but I do agree that the iPad feels a bit more refined. But I still consider them pretty much the same thing.
2) My bias, and anyone else's bias, is irrelevant whether it's there or not. Go back and read what I said again: I said that computers are more powerful than iPads, there isn't anything that an iPad can do that a Tablet PC can't, but there are many things a Tablet PC can do that an iPad can't. These are facts. This is just how things are. Whatever my bias is isn't going to change that. And if you think I'm wrong, then feel free to provide some sort of factual
But since my bias is in question, then maybe it's good for you to know that I've actually bought 3 people ipads as gifts. One of them was even a wedding gift. I have absolutely nothing against ipads whatsoever. My claim of Tablet PC > iPad is similar to saying the i7-980X > your PhenII x4 940. You might not like
it, and there may be a million different reasons why you picked the Phenom and not the i7, but that doesn't change the fact that the 980X is
3) Good to know about the styluses - you sure they haven't just gotten used to keeping their palm off the screen, or are they actually writing like normal people?
P.S.: I really am legitimately curious as to what tablet PCs Best Buy has, because on their site they only have the one, and the Best Buy near me doesn't have any at all. And by tablet PCs I mean actual PCs, not ipad/Android/whatever tablets. I didn't ask it to try to make any sort of point or anything.
