    To me, the problem with iTunes is that it has long since outgrown the original intent, DRM for music.

    Yesterday, I needed to get some files onto my Galaxy Tab. DropBox wasn't working so I did something really radical, plugged a USB stick into my tab and copied the files over.

    I really don't understand why this shouldn't be posible on iPad without JB?

The SSD is specifically designed for use in a computer system. It is up to 100 times faster acting than a SD card. CF cards are several times faster than SD cards. SD cards are designed for use in portable devices like cameras. They are not as robust as a SSD, and are more likely to get corrupted. A SSD also has a controller which allocates how the memory stores information and protects the memory.
    I fully understand what a SSD is and I also understand that calling the flash memory system used in the iPad a SSD is a stretch at best. A SSD is simply a solid state replacement for a hard drive and it uses an interface compatible with traditional hard disks (SATA in most modern implementations). Using NAND is not a requirement for a SSD nor does it result in the fastest SSD available. Doesn't really matter I suppose, just a pet peeve of mine I guess. My washing machine has flash memory also but I don't go around saying it is sporting a SSD.

    What generation is your Galaxy Tab? What drawbacks do you find with it?

    I'm considering buying a Samsung tab, and my uses would be vanilla -- what most non-tech users do with tabs (surfing, books, audiobooks, movies, music and photos). Easily adding Word/Office docs would be another plus. I would need 3G/4G.

    Right now, all SSDs use NAND flash. Older models used RAM, but since 2010, all are NAND. The SSDs in the iPad meet all of the requirements of a SSD. It has the controller, capacitor, and all other components required to be called SSD. The only difference from other SSDs is that it is not user-replaceable. To keep it super compact, the storage is combined with the processor on one board. A generic SSD is manufactured in 2.5" HDD form factor to make it easier to replace in a production model computer, but the iPad is technically not a PC. You could make the argument that the interface is PCI-e since a variant of that is used on the combination board the iPad uses. I have difficulty understanding why you are so peeved about the concept of a non-HDD form factor SSD. I have often wondered about the potential of using RAM module form factors in future computers to add NAND memory. Instead of two HDD bays, have room where you could have 32Gb SSD as in a hybrid drive from the factory, but with replaceable memory.

    Actually there are RAM form factor SSDs already available, just not widely in the consumer market. Form factor is meaningless, but generally when talking about actual SSDs the device has an interface to make it work with existing hard drive ready systems. Perhaps that exists in the ipad already albeit in a much reduced and lower performance form and I am mistaken. Anyhow this would make for an interesting topic into itself but is probably straying far from the path of the original topic.

    I'm not a techie, but I've owned devices with SSDs and without. I get that there's a performance tradeoff in some uses and that longer-term reliability is a factor (which is why my laptop has an SSD), but the discussion has moved into the weeds.

    The point is that with Android's SD flexibility, you can easily add and remove content. Other than price points, there's no reason there couldn't be an Android device sold with 64GB storage (iOS's current max), plus SD card use, versus an iOS device with 64GB and no SD card flexibility. That boils down to Apple's own decisions to limit that sort of flexibility.

    There's also wide variation in SD card performance, which is why I try to buy higher-classed SD cards, for better results. That's another price point to consider, of course.

    Android will never die. competition is needed for healthy growth and products to become even better. I am completely satisfied with my transformer prime. everything works great and love the versatility of android. my ipad misses my attention though we had some great times but it was time to upgrade though.

    p.s. my Prime is lag free. screen transitions are fluid and fast. everything is fast. so imo, prime doesnt fall into lag category like apple fans usually love to say about android.

    I read that Prime can accept some 128GB cards, which would be a boon to users who want lots of flex storage.

    Prices get steeper with that much storage, but at least it's storage you can use in various devices. When it comes to loading stuff like movies and photos, I don't need them to be on my device's SSD for good performance.

    It's first generation Galaxy Tab 7.7. I like the compactness, light weight and open hardware/software.

    The iPad has a better screen but the Galaxy is perfectly adequate and my first choice fir the reasons stated.

    Thanks. No other drawbacks?
