I have been wanting a tablet for a couple of weeks now. I wanted the xoom, but saw the price tag. Now Ipad 2 comes out and its still cheaper than the android counter part. I feel like im in a bizarro world where apple is cheaper and has more options.

If only you want to save $100 buying the ipad 1 and invest in a better video card... lmao
Yea... But wait, don't you have a phone with a camera? And don't you have a digital camera too? The whole Facetime or Facechat or whatever it's called might be "useful", but...

1. Will it work with other non-apple people?
2. It's kinda dumb the notion of taking pictures and videos with iPad... "HOLD ON! Let me bust out my iPad for this group photo op!"
3. Photobooth... I mean, do people still get entertained by this? My face is pretty ugly to start with, and I don't need any help making it uglier.
4. I never understood the front facing cams... I don't need to be reminded of how ugly I am, unless I am video chatting with even uglier person, which then it might make me feel better...
5. I don't like video chatting with people, unless there is a possibility that I am chatting with a very attractive female, and there is a possibility of her being topless. I just don't see myself going... "HEY! DUDE! Let me Vchat with you because I wanna see your face!"

Is it cool to clap at your own comments?

I have the original Ipad and I am a android fan boy. But you have to admit apple has yet to have any competition.

I mean come on a 800 dollar xoom(overpriced) can't believe apple is the cheapest!

I would take a 300-350 honey comb tablet any day!

Until then I will stick with my OG IPAD

1) If their phone adopts the FaceTime standard, then it should
2) I can actually imagine doing that, not often, but if the camera is decent I would actually like seeing the whole photo on the big screen, especially with video -- it would great.

Had the ipad 1 since day 1, and loved it.
Sold it a couple months ago while the resale was high, and was just waiting for the ipad 2.

But i got my Xoom last week, and im glad I did. Honeycomb is awesome.

VGA front camera on a screen of 1024x768 you would be lucky to see anything LOL.

At least their macbooks have a 720p front camera.

Anyone notice they did the same thing on their ipod touch? With the "hd" camera on the back? It's actually 0.7 mega pixels, but it's enough for 720p recording, not "high resolution" pictures.

never, ever ever ever, would buy an apple product. every one of their products are gimmicky, they try to look original, but that wares off when the competition comes out with something better, and that's about to happen to the Ipad, it happened to the Iphone IMHO.
