Oh dear. BSOD on a slate. Wait for the downloading of 61 security patches before you do anything at all. Every app with its own custom menu system. What do you do when it says "A system error has occurred in Kernel383.com, hit F1 to continue" and there's no keyboard?

Good deal but horrible idea.

If you seriously have a problem with it, you can load Linux onto there (can't do MAC osx cause no keypad)

title is wrong! 1.6ghz, not 1.6mhz!!!

You might "think" the iPad is pretentious but the reason WHY they lock it down is because it creates a better end user experience for people. Apps being vetted for spyware/viruses, while checking to see they do actually do what they say on the tin.

You only have to look at the success of it. People love it because it WORKS!

Spec for spec on paper seems good compared to the ipad. Higher res screen, camera/ webcam, usb, SD card slot, docking station. One thing it doesnt have though is expensive marketing telling you how much you need it and how socially outcast you will be if you dont buy it. I suspect most people resent all things apple because 1) of the OTT price 2) because of their over possesive attitude 3) the over hype they put into the product 4) the type of people (some not all) who fall for the hype. The products themeslves (I use them myself) are good, but its like BMW & Burberry - they just get a bad rep once the window lickers get over hyped up on them. Shame really.

It's no hype - people have been wanting IT that "just works" for decades. Today there is only one company that delivers - Apple. I don't want to be called a fanboy but it's time the likes of Microsoft took the competiion seriously and raised their game. Frankly I don't care what the branding of the product is - all I know is I used to have a windows phone and it needed rebooting every day or it slowed down. I now have an iPhone and it's been reset 4 times (due to upgrades etc) since July. iPad has been reset twice since April with no slowdowns. This is not about marketing hype it's about stuff working.

Atari managed that a long time ago. My Atari 2600 never crashed or rebooted itself once. Making a closed OS stable is a far easier task than trying to constantly work when the goal posts are constantly moving.

in fairness, iOS was written as a touch screen OS from the ground up, Windows was not and I perish the thought of a Windows-driven tablet if Im honest

However, the iPad is HUGELY over-priced for what it does, so I will be tablet-less for a good while yet! :P

Oh I wish some one would combine the best points of all the OSs out there:
Looks & useabilty of Apple without the cost & handcuffs to their company.
Cost and creativeness of Linux without the geekiness required to install anything.
Flexibility and software support of Windows without the slow bootup/crashes/viruses.

And whatever device it's on it switches on and ready to use instantly...

Yes, Android is good. But it still slows with use and it's not as easy to use as iOS. I'm not saying the others are rubbish, they are just behind. I'm surprised the competition hasn't got better yet and I hope it will for the benefit of everyone.

This weighs about 1kg

Netbooks typically weigh 1.3-1.8kg
Netbooks with 1024x768 cost under 200

For 1366x768, A quick google gives Dell Inspiron Mini at 299
Supposedly the best one currently out there - ASUS Eee PC 1215N costs about 430

... and this costs 470.

I may be being slow, but ignoring IPad / Android comparisons and comparing it to very similar things, it looks a little pricey. I know it has a capacitive screen, but then it has no keyboard.

It's just as easy to use as iOS, more configurable and just as quick on the right phone. Currently iOS and Android are on par but there is FAR more choice of handsets AND tablets than apple. I'm surprised you haven't caught up with that yet.

No, it's just not as intuitive as iPhone. Not as easy to use. And it slows down with apps running. Yes, it has lots of different formats and sizes and (unfortunately) a collection of competing launchers etc. It is more flexible and that's exactly what makes it harder to use - many ways to get the same thing done does not a simpler device make.

It's not harder to use at all...Android can be dumbed down to become an App Launcher just like IOS if you so choose (Google for MIUI as an example) but instead it has the ability to use widgets for instant access to the data you want without having to launch an app every time.


As for slowing down when apps are open...Have you used any Android devices with similar spec to the Apple equivalent or are you comparing old early gen Android hardware? current mid/high end Android devices have no slow down that i've ever seen.

And what's the problem with competing launchers...it give users flexibility and the ability to choose how the OS looks unlike IOS with it's like it or lump it app launcher interface.......'want widgets tough...'

To be honest you sound like Apple's perfect customer....To blinkered to see IOS's shortcomings

lol. 3 hrs battery. Which equates to 1hr-2hr websurfing.

good find..faster processor than ipad, easily available and better apps...

Personally, I would prefer netbook rather than a tablet..heat for you..
#23
IPAD please don't insult this or any such devise by comparing them to the limited ipad.. ipad is nothing but an over priced and over hyped gadget..
