Yes! It will replace my iPad.
Yes! But I'll keep my iPad too.
No! I'll keep my iPad.
Maybe. I have to use it before I decide.
Anything that gives me flash, I'm getting
One thing I heard about the Android system... you have 24h to get a reimbursement no-questions-asked for any app you buy on their store. (Please correct me if I heard wrong).
I think that would be awesome on the Apple App Store. I have many times wasted 0.99$s and 1.99$s. Ratings and reviews aren't a sure way to ensure you will like the app.
Even the new Archos 101 which is a 10" Android tablet has a major fault that Is forcing many people to return it or not buy it. Apparently the functionality of the unit is excellent, it even has simple access to the Android Marketplace, but the screen has terrible viewing angle problems.
The GalaxyTab already exceeds iPad in nearly every aspect besides form factor.
The iPad is a damn elegant design and UI.
If I were to purchase a tablet for myself I would be giving serious consideration to the Galaxy Tab.
However, being an Apple fanatic I will probably wait for the 3rd or 4th gen iPad and see how they react to the Android competition that is sure to put some pressure on them before buying a tablet.
The Apple AppStore is so over-crowded with crappy, useless applications, I'll be thrilled to have a tablet that is more open to developers. Apple is making the same mistake that it made in the 80s - over-controlling developers. This stifles competition and sends programmers to other platforms. Oh, and being able to take advantage of flash websites, an obvious no-brainer. Yes, I'm thrilled to see new non-Apple tablets appear.
Funny thing is, one of the highest downloaded apps on the Android Marketplace is actually a fart sound app.
