The Honeycomb SDK was just launched. Give it time and I'm sure there would be thousands released from Android developers.

lol at the pics. Pompous much?

The Xoom is superior to the iPad 2, but will not sell as many units due to Motorola pricing it too high. Also the average consumer is ignorant and will see the price and then the Apple logo.

While the WebOS and BlackberryOS most definitely won't have any abundance of quality apps Android seems to be the only real competition. Although, it will take quite a few more months before apps really start taking off and by that time it might be too late. For the computer geeks like us, Android might be preferred since we can root it and customize it, but the majority of consumers don't know how or want to do that. Apps will be the major reason they choose the iPad.

Cretz, I don't think many people care if it's got an Apple or a Sony logo on it. Most people don't really care about rooting and putting custom roms and such on a tablet they just want to be able to pick it up and surf the internet or play a quick time-wasting game. The iPad fits this niche perfectly.

Love it or Hate it, it works and looks great.

Don't think so.


No ones really given the real advantage of having these over a netbook or something of the likes.

Seems like it's just a trend blown out of proportion.

This is perfectly true. This is why the iPad 2 will outsell all of the the other tablets. I also think itunes makes the iPad 2 easier.

They say this to get everyone to buy a new one now, and they will just release the "IPAD 2 HD" for Christmas.

GO GO 2011: the year of the IPAD 2.
