Yeah, I'm pretty sure you missed my point.
My point is this: an Android app designed for a ~3.5" screen w/ a ~800x480 resolution running on a ~10" ~1280x800 resolution isn't going to be anywhere near as good/useful/functional as an app designed specifically for that size.
The iPad doesn't have a phone-like layout. Look at the iPhone calendar app verse the iPad calendar app below:
That's all I'm saying. I was originally replying to someone (and somewhat to several who've said a similar thing in this thread) who was saying that because Android scales the applications up it's as good as native.
How'd you like to see the iPhone calendar app just stretched to fit the screen rather than a dedicated one designed just for it? Android apps scale up (not run pixel double) but you still end up with the same design, it just doesn't look pixelated.
