    this is true. plus the fact that Prime has usb host capabilities takes it even further. people are plugging up 500gb & 1tb external HDD to dock usb port or to adapter(40pin to usb) and they work flawlessly without having to do anything extra. same with other usb devices. extra drivers can be easily added to prime. we even have ethernet support out the box now along with wifi direct.

    i do miss messing with garageband and playing infinity blade 2 though. i got tired of being locked into apple and all their expensive add ons. One thing i can say is that my ipad is tuff. it has seen numerous falls and being stepped on and it still works and looks fine. Apple devices are well made.

Anyhow this would make for an interesting topic into itself but is probably straying far from the path of the original topic.
    Even though it strays I'd like to know where you were able to find performance figures for the iPad drive to compare it to other SSDs? I've been looking but cannot find...

    Very cool. That kind of flexibility is what interests me most about Android devices.

    I like my iDevices and agree they're well made. And when I dropped and shattered an iPhone 4, they offered me a free replacement, which I doubt any company but Amazon would match, even in isolated cases.

    I don't play games, so I wouldn't miss many iOS apps even if I switched entirely away from iDevices.

    You should check out the various screen sizes before you buy. I bought the 7.7" without looking at larger sizes (e.g. 8.9" ). I wouldn't want have chosen anything smaller.

    Something that never comes up with is compatibilty of apps. The important apps don't seem to be a problem though.

    What kind of apps have you run into probs with? I've found all the ones I went looking for so far, but I use mainstream apps like Kindle, Audible, Netflix most on mobile devices.

    I'd get a full-size Samsung tab more likely than a smaller one, because I have a Kindle Fire and the Galaxy Note.

    No problems with manstream apps. I have had problems with news/magazine apps, The Economist snd The Australian. I had apps for both on the iPad and, while there are equivalent Android apps, they don't work on my Galaxy Tab 7.7. I now access news sites directly. I am not sure why apps were ever necessary for news anyway.

    Thanks. Yes, I read my subscriptions to The Economist, NYT, etc., on their websites, too. Agreed on no need for such apps.

    Galaxy pros:-
    Smaller lighter and more portable. The iPad feels bulky and heavy when I go back to it.
    Open file system.
    Micro SD card.
    USB connectvity. Copy files to/from USB stick.
    GPS on WiFi only device.
    No iTunes.

    iPad pros:-
    There times when a lager screen is necessary (e.g. when using SplahTop).
    I feel a bit safer usng the iPad secure transactions, probably not justified.
    While the Galaxy display is quite good, the iPad display is somehow better (even iPad 1).

    I agree. I have the galaxy 7 plus. I like the size and weight. Very compact. I like having the ability to add files using the sd card. I use it mostly when I am on my ipad and cant pull up something because of the flash issue. Then I just use my tab. I can carry it around in my purse with no problem. Its great.

    My Ipad is my go to device, because I am just so much more familiar with it. I am still getting adjusted to android devices. I enjoy having both. But then, I am a gadget person!!
