[Androidized] Toshiba Tablet to Be Better than Ipad 2 and Competitively Priced - Page 4

post #31 of 54
It's been said... but apple has the Apps.... and Apps are what makes it... although most people will probably just use it for web browsing...

As far as specs? Who needs a Ferrari when your on a 35MPH road... its just a waste...

besides the specs would only really help with games... of which the App store has better games... and they run quite beautifully on the hardware for which they are designed...

But Tabbed browsing is where it's at...

Edit: Also.....

Yes, but on iPad, the active task is the only task that is working at that moment, on Android there are more task active at the same time.

You can say: "Why do I need multiple tasks ? I want one task but to work perfect", "Why do I need multiple tabs? Facebook is the only site I load". Well, I care about this, I can't stay 20 seconds on a stupid connection starring on a webpage to load, I want to do something else meanwhile.

When I browse I use to open more tabs so I can read further and go on. I read an article and the author point some links to other articles. I want to read those well, or at least to see what it is about but I want to finish the current article too. This is nothing geeky, nerdy, or how Apple users want to call advanced features, but you just can't do everything in a single thread: "you have to choose this or that".

Stop commenting on something you clearly know very little of. You can quite easily run multiple tasks on iOS.

Whilst I actually like "i" product styling and in hand user experience, at the end of the day, ipad/phone/pod whatever, none of them have usb, all of them require itunes to interface, no simple plug and play, no compatibilty.

If all you want from a tablet is wifi web surfing you may as well buy a £70 Chinese tablet.

Wow so many ill informed anti apple fanboys on this forum, it is very pathetic to hate something because of its brand...

This Toshiba tablet may have better specs than the iPad 2, but whats the point of having a superfast tablet with an empty app store?

You have clearly never used an iPad. I can listen to music on a radio app, while a webpage loads while I send a tweet in the twitter application. And if it takes you 20seconds to load a webpage, I'd say your ISP is a bottleneck

iOS has had multi-tasking for some time now.

The iOS may not have a tabbing system of great efficiency like a laptop or desktop does, but it still does have the function.

Also, apps do run in the background while you're in other apps/in Safari. For instance, you can stream Pandora Internet Radio as you browse the web or play Angry Birds.

But as others have stated, there has been multitasking for a few months now.

It's just a big iphone 4. There is no point in an ipad.
post #40 of 54
Shouldn't be hard to do better than the iPad. Just wow. 1st if apple didn't create the ipad and the basically entire tablet market less than a year ago, no-one would be trying to better them.
Part of the reason Apple will do so well this year is that the competition will show how far apples lead in hardware design and value is.
If it was easy don't you think it would be done? Android is free so hey just put some parts together and a battery.
