I'm starting to get sick of the screen resolution thing. Seriously! People, when ipad1 first came out, it was the best looking thing around, as far as display goes cause it is a very good one. Very clear. Then came iPhone4 with, yes I'll say it, b.s. Retina display. Yeah, iTs a clearer display, but SO WHAT! I'd rather look at my iPad any day thn lil ol iPhone4 retina screen, regardless of the improved resolution. Now that every one is fixated on numbers, everyone seems to down the original iPad's display. Imstill think it's one of the best out there still. Yeah Xoom has higher resolution, but look how that hurt the scores on the benchmarking. I even read posts from Xoom owners themselves saying yeah, Xoom has higher resolution but iPad 1 display is still brighter and more clear and better looking. It's not all about the numbers people. It's more about the experience. Just like people fixated on RAM numbers. Look how well iPad1 did with a measley 256 mb. I'd call that very impressive. Developers have done wonders with this liltle bit. Ipad2 has 512mb Ram so it only gets better. On paper, Xoom supposedly is a beast, spec wise. In reality, it's full of bugs, rushed OS, hardly any tablet only apps, falsely delivered on features advertised such as flash, sd card support, and hdmi. They claim it'll soon be released. But weren't u months ago claiming it could do all that from the start? Lmao
Sorry fornthe rant but I love my ipad1 like crazy and still get the WOW factor when ever I'm using it. Can't wait to see what the future holds if this ipad1 is just a glimpse of it ;-). I will try to hold out for ipad3 but it's hard reading the great reviews and benchmarking specs on them. If I were to get one, I'd wait till after the first wave is gone and most bugs worked out.
