Coming from Android to Apple what do I need to know?
I have a Droid Incredible. I LOVE my phone. I LOVE all that it can do and therefore I was under the illusion that I would LOVE a fully functioning Android Tablet. I was wrong. I bought the Motorola Xoom on launch day. I lied to myself for 3 weeks to convince me that it was my "dream" device. I finally fessed up to myself and realized the fun I had tinkering with my phone was not the fun I wanted to have tinkering with my Xoom.
Rooting my phone was amazing. It gave me access to free wireless tethering, allowed me to change my UI, gave me complete control over everything. I don't want to go through all of that to use a tablet. I want to be able to watch movies with Netflix. I want to be able to view Hulu and have the ability to surf the internet without my browser force closing every 2 minutes for no reason at all.
My last experience with an iAnything was a first gen iPod. I disliked Apple every since due to how they handle(d) DRM. I'm willing to jump back into the water for a device that works like it should.
What do I need to know. Obviously I'm not a tech newb. I know my way around, but what should I watch for what should I expect to be different, the same, etc than an Android interface?
What apps should I buy, what apps should I avoid, what are some tricks for syncing my gmail, google calendar, picasa, etc when I get my iPad 2?
Any and all feedback to "educate me" would be appreciated.
