I wont get a tablet Period, unless its an actual laptop. not that many people know or realize, they are using a light version of a pc for the price of an actual high performance laptop. I Think the battery is actually worth more that any part on the Ipad
My grandfather was given an iPad 2 for his birthday and playing with it/teaching him how to use it is what convinced me to get my iPhone 4. If I ever had the money to toss on electronics I would DEFINITELY get an iPad 3. As it is, I need to replace my MacBook first.
Played with my uncle's after about 20min I was all done.
I would rather draw, read a book, be on a full laptop or desktop PC working or playing a game, or for the rare times I watch TV these days, sit in a relax posture and view a full-sized TV.
I don't begrudge others for having one (except the d-bags that act like there's something wrong me for not wanting one) but the tablets in general and the iPad in specific are a cure to a non-existent disease.
I was lucky enough to get my iPad 2 as a gift. I never thought I would have one, but now it's all I use for a computer. I barely even use my laptop. I don't get why so many people get so up in arms about Apple. it's nbd. Are people actually getting mad about it?
I have an iPad 1, and did not pony up for the iPad2. The iPad 3 with the A6 processor and 'possible' retina display (it's not been confirmed to be included yet) makes this tablet a monster of a device. I am very very happy with my iPad 1 , so upgrading to this new machine will most likely only increase my productivity and enjoyment of that product line. I might pony up for the 3G version, but that is not a definite. I have not had any problems with wifi on the ipad1, but that's just me, sometimes I like not being on "the grid".
Too many things would have to happen at once for me to choose an iPad 3, or any iPad. I don't care for the interface, and they're wayyyy too expensive just because they have the Apple brand on them. Sure, there are more useful apps written for iPads, but I've gotten by this far without them, so I'll probably continue to do so.
Call me when HP come to their senses and webOS finds a home in the market again - then I'll consider buying another tablet (I have a TouchPad now and love the OS and the sound system - it just doesn't have enough commercially-relevant apps ).
The Asus Transformer Prime is a tablet that is fully open and has an optional keyboard dock. It also has USB ports and acts as a USB host, so this device can be used to transfer files from an external CF card reader over to an external USB HDD. This would be PERFECT for the mobile photographer!
A friend of mine has that Galaxy S2. I used to see it everyday and we used to do the same things with our phones and each one was happy with his device. It's not a matter of hate or love, just preferences.
Both Android and ios are good operating systems. Saying one is crap is childish and dramatic. I've had an iPhone 3, a Droid X, and an HTC Thunderbolt and the rest of my family has iPhone 4's. I will say that as soon as my contract ends I will be going back to an iPhone. The iPhone works all the time and is intuitive. What you get with the small sacrifice in customizability is a phone without any glitches. Unlike every Android I've ever used. There is always some weird little thing that I don't like and have to learn to work around.
I agree. I've had Android for years now and I had an iPhone before that. I LOVED my iPhone I liked my Android. The only phone IMO that came close to the iPhone was the original EVO. I have the 3D now and though it's faster it's form factor is a little wonky. I have to remember to switch the camera back to 2D. The UI keeps restarting. Sometimes I can't even answer a call. so, yeah. I never had that issue with my iPhone.
