Of course the Ipad competes with the Nexus, while there are closer tablets to either one in the marketplace many of the same people that would consider getting an Ipad will consider getting the cheaper (and smaller) nexus.

Just like the iPhone and Blackburry. Very different phones, but compete for the same market (Business users and youth)

Fashion, Price, Functionality are Usability will dictate who buys what.

I personally cant justify paying close to double for an Ipad, though if I had the money I would. Bottom line Apple leads the way in user experience, but it comes at a significant price.

I don't think RIM is competing with anything or anyone right now. Never mind Apple.

This site makes me chuckle. The idea of the forum is to vote on whether the item is question is a good deal; I don't understand why some forum members vote cold and leave unhelpful comments because of a 'similar' product that performs 'similar' tasks.

This is a HOT deal as its cheaper than nearly everywhere - no argument. The Nexus deal is also HOT.

For those that wish to promote an alternative option, why not try a statement such as:
"Voted Hot, great for those in the market for an iPad - However personally I would prefer a XXX because of XXX".
This shows the OP the respect they deserve for spending the time to help other forum members whilst allowing you to put forward an alternative option a relatively intelligent manor.

I have always used Android products but last month I decided to buy an new iPad. I'm so glad I did as its an amazing piece of kit. I still love my Android tablet, but for completely different reasons.

Could have sworn this was an iPad deal thread but I'll bite, how's it a 'base tablet' when it's the market leader?



This is indeed the "base tablet" in the IPAD 3 range, until the "Mini Ipad" is brought out.

The Google Nexus 7" comes out of the box with ICS, I did not mention any other tablet.

16 GB is not enough anymore...

Apple haters blamed Apple iPad for not having card slot,but look, Google Nexus 7 hasnt got any card slot too,so what now android fans?

Easy, you get what you pay for. It's pretty obvious Google/Asus had to cut some corners to achieve the price point they wanted. So some of the extras you usually get had to be eliminated. At £200 I'm not really going to complain. If you want a tablet with a SD slot, 3G, HDMI etc I'd look to another alternative, whether than be a iPad, Transfomers or even waiting for a MS Surface.

Would love to vote this hot but with dick moves like these from Apple, I find it hard to either buy or vote up any Apple product.

And you know, what the worst part is? The sales ban is over a search patent to do with Siri, even though Android phones had voice search before iPhone.

you wouldn't think they were "dick moves" if you were a shareholder or employee.

if Samsung have broken the rules, then they should be punished accordingly.

Actually, if I was a tech working for Apple, I would probably consider this to be a dick move as well (not sure about management though). Most of these software patents are to do with who came across a problem first rather than who invented the solution first, because the solution in most cases is relatively straightforward. That is the reason why it is not possible to patent algorithms or maths equations. However, Apple are very much abusing a broken US patent system. So yes, a dick move indeed.

They all act that way.. It's called being in business.

Depends on what you do with it. Mine already paid for itself, literally.

Its tit for tat over patents, but Apple seems to be using its financial muscle more than anyone else, buying patents they did not develop to sue rival companies.

Patents should be over inventions, however apple blocking Samung tablet/phones (most prominent example) over rectangular shape with a wide touchscreen. This is simply blatant attempts trying to stifle competition. Its gotten so bad that apple even doctored images to make the Samsung look more similar to the Ipad.

Sadly the only ones that win are Apple and lawyers.

Good story but heres' a better one, Samsung lawyers couldn't tell the iPad and Samsung's tablet apart in court.

It's not just Apple winning. Motorola currently has an injunction against iCloud users in Germany stopping Apple from providing Push services like e-mail. Nokia also sued Apple a year or so back and got a ton of money in settlement. As I said they're all the same.

No denying they are all as bad as one another, however Apple are seen as the biggest bully in the yard. From its App store (how it treats its developers), to staff which make the devices to attacking competitors with patents.

I have no problem with apple devices, they are pretty much the best. I do disagree with how the behave as a company though. As google said "Patents were meant to encourage innovation, but lately they are being used as a weapon to stop it"

While everyone is suing everyone these days, Apples lawyers appear the most aggressive with lawsuits against just about every major electronics or software company (from patents on icons to simple multtasking, standards in place for years and should never have been granted)

As arbitrabbit said apple make "dick moves" and while Samsung, Nokia, Kodak etc can all be dicks too. Apple is the biggest dick :p

The fact is the patents were granted, and therefore Apple (or any other company who holds a patent) would be foolish to do nothing, and therefore send a message to other (rival) companies that it does not do anything to protect its intellectual property!

The issue is that the patents are often for very obscure things or minute details that we as users take for granted, and that is why it seems so petty, and that is why everyone is suing everyone - probably because nobody knows what anybody else has exactly in their intellectual property portfolio!

I think the best argument it to quote Steve Jobs

“Google, you f–king ripped off the iPhone, wholesale ripped us off. Grand theft.” Jobs swore he would “spend my last dying breath” and “every penny” in Apple’s coffers “to right this wrong. I’m going to destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go to thermonuclear war on this.”

Apple attacking other firms with patents is not normal business it is a war. The problem with a war, is with every attack Apple made, competitors had nukes (IP) of their own to retaliate.

Apple started this litigation process, going well beyond normal IP (eg rounded edges on a rectangle phone oO ). No one should be granted or fight patents on the minor issues they are

Its gotten into such a daft situation, 29B was spent on patent trolling !

you're not buying from ebay, you're buying via ebay. Same principle as expedia etc who many use without insurance issues.

I'd be worried about the credentials of your insurers. Best give them a 'bell' then.
