I would buy one if it was under 300 bucks.
I love the idea of a good sized tablet, but its not worth 500 bucks to me.

Needs to be under 300 bucks before I consider a tablet.

You're actually quite wrong about the whole apple market share. Firstly Android is on top and sells more than the iPhone. Also before you compare android vs ios, you should be comparing iOS to RIM the blackberries. They are very close together, in terms of %. Also very similar, rim makes the software and hardware, where as android makes software and other companies make the hardware. i.e htc, sony, samsung, lg, moto etc.

Iphone has been selling strong yes, but android has been selling stronger.

iphones have been coming out every year since 2007? Contracts last 2 years in USA and 3 years in Canada. (unless you want to buy it for $1000 :O) So seeing that the "iphone5" will be coming out in June, it doesn't surprise me that the iphone 4 owners will be looking to upgrade to #5. They are not attracting brand new customers, it's all the old ones with a exception of a few every now and then.

P.S Apple's keynote of the ipad 2 says "They have sold 100 million iphones." That's the course of 4 years 2007-2011. Samsung in 2010 has sold 80 millionish phones in a year, obviously many selections. Nokia sells 100+ million yearly. Don't get all excited with apple's numbers.

I wouldn't ask the OCN community. There are a lot of Apple haters here (not saying that's a bad thing).

The iPod Touch is ok, since its mainly a music player. But Apple is trying to sell me a "computer" without disk access, which is simply ridiculous.
It's great. Only problem is that the screen is lower quality (like build quality) than the iphone and ipad and the camera sucks at photos (not videos).

So people who bought the Xoom, what did you install on it first? I saw it had an MLB app.

I would never waste my money on an Apple product. I used to be a HUGE Apple fan before they moved to intel and still charged just as much. They went from being the heart and soul of my tech fetish to being a harsh outsider that charges incredible amounts for nothing special at all. They used to rail against Microsoft for not giving the user enough control and now they are the very embodiment of Big Brother when it comes to technology.

I hate Apple.

Why when I have my iPhone doing what I need on the go?

Smaller and it calls people with some OCN lurking

Word Processing? I go to a computer or better yet a printer that has that Air Connect thing that was in iOS 4.1 and type in my phone. Also fits in my pocket as a my music jamming utility

P.S Rather buy the Xoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooom.

Let me just say this.

1100-1200 for a 13in MBP is not bad. Considering that it has sandy bridge and is made out of solid aluminum. I can't stand commodity plastic laptops anymore, they can't take aging at all and are generally of lesser quality.

iPad/iPhone are strong because of the app ecosystem. Having developed for these things, there are some strange things with xCode and objective-C, but you are rewarded with a top-notch emulator and a finite number of hardware targets. Unfourtunatly I have developed for android too (you want to know why generally worse battery life? Dalvik VM's for every app), heavy version fragmentation, abandon ware phones, an app store filled with soundboards/ringtone apps and the occasional malware. The pay off for devs is not there, Android store had _less_ revenue in 2010 than the Ovi Store -- thats terrible! iPad has thousands of native applications and the hardware is well-built. When I am at the doctor's office and he is telling me how much he wants one -- there is something going on.

As for Android being open source, why do they not release source of honeycomb DURING development, not after release? How do you preview open source software without distributing it or allowing anybody non-google to commit or have any say over the process? It is a joke, plain and simple. Firefox is true open source, Android is not.
