    Being open source allows many manufacturers to provide their own implementations of the OS. This is a good thing. It brings competition and inventiveness. however, it also means that the user experience varies across manufacturers. Some provide software updates with more speed than others, some implement the OS with more stability, some with more polish. This means that while an iPad is an iPad is an iPad. The same cannot be said about an android tablet. The Asus tf101 is very different in feel to the Samsung Tab 2.0 for example.

    As an owner and user of both devices I can already say that the iPad 3 is the nicest, most polished and enjoyable tablet I have ever used. It is not without its weaknesses, however. One example is the inability to select a soft keyboard with a number row as a fifth row. I have seen requests for this dating back 2 years, but still we are not "allowed" to have it.

    Nothing is perfect. Nothing will suite everyone. At the end of the day all devices have their limitations - part of the fun is working around them & making your device "yours".

    Good way to put it. My iPad 2 isn't perfect by any means but it just works and does what I need it to. The portability, battery life, and sheer number of good apps makes it great. I can spend all day talking about niggling issues here and there about it. Some of them are even rather annoying. However, there isn't another tablet I'd rather have. I shopped an tried them all. And, I am not an Apple user or fanboy.

    iOS is the operating system that enables all of Apple's mobile devices to function. You can't use any of these devices without interacting with iOS. There is no way to completely log out of iOS.
    In regards to YouTube, have you downloaded the YouTube app from the App Store? The current version is an iPhone app that works on the iPad as well. There is also Jasmine, a free app that plays YouTube videos.
    The reason that YouTube is no longer part of iOS 6 is that Apple's licence to include it had expired.

    This pretty much sums up how I feel about the iOS vs Android issue:

    While Apple will be forever criticized for its "walled garden," diehard Android users will never understand (or admit) that the Cupertino model works. When Steve came back to Apple in 1997, one of his first executive orders was to kill the clone program, much to the dismay of the fringe Mac community. It wasn't so much about controlling profits; Steve simply sacrificed the needs of the few to protect the experience of the many.
    A small, vocal minority of Android users know the ins and outs of rooting and clamor on about how much more advanced Android is than iOS, but the vast majority of users will never know how great Android can be, whether due to carrier or manufacturer manipulation of the UI or an inability to upgrade to the newest version. Apple, on the other hand, always makes sure its for-sale handsets can enjoy at least some of the features in the latest OS right from day one, and each release is crafted to boost speed and performance on all supported models.
    Google certainly puts as much effort into each Android release--Jelly Bean's Project Butter was dedicated to making scrolling and gesturing as smooth as iOS--but if 99 percent of users can't experience it, what's the point? Even with a second-rate maps app, iOS 6 will likely be close to 50 percent adoption rate by Christmas.

    I'm afraid that it is impossible at the present time to downgrade your iOS from 6 to 5.1.1.

    That's not cool. For this reason apple kinda sucks. Maybe there will come out a good update for ios 6 that won't slow down my device.

    Not everybody has reported slowdowns, some even say their devices are faster with iOS 6.
