    Refund

    Much as the rules say no refund I have after complaining via email have received several refunds for what I described as applications that were incorrectly advertised or just bad news. I also read reviews on other web sites prior to buying. Just thought i would let you know.

    I agree with numblock frankly I love the iTunes for one major reason is that I sync 2 iPads 2 iPhones 2 iPod touch's and the apple tv ( prior version) with my MacBook every thing just works on all devices. I know many hate iTunes however i believe that it is a under a major upgrade and hopefully will resolve many issues users have. I use a combination of apps to find apps i want as the search in iTunes is I must say awkward. Like food recipes etc. No separate section. Music is fantastic we use apple tv for most previews before buying as it is connected to our surround system As for android and apps I am content paying for some thing i want and I do not find the cost high i mean let's face it how many apps do you really use and own? Flash is a non event for me as it does not affect my browsing. i have a MacBook if I really want to go or look at flash site. The one thing I love about the iPad is in fact it's slick fast interface and no wait start up plus awesome battery life. I also believe in quality of construction which quite frankly apple is know for. I am totally open to look at competitors products so please do not label me a fan boy I love the technology and if some one produces a better product that does more than what i currently use then i would consider buying it but in saying that it will have to be something non of us ever could even dream about as I think for now the current offerings from competitors will be similar with maybe a few added options that people want. I would almost bet if in fact a 10 " tablet similar to the iPad came along it will have some thing that users do not like or hate. Any way that's my 2 cents worth.

    You heard correctly you get 24hours, better than a lite or demo version. Just buy the App and try it. If you don't like it just go back to the Android market and click Refund. I'm afraid that having to grapple with iPad App makers for a refund really does not compare.

    I might buy one of those super cheapo Chinese ones sooner or later just to see what it can do, but I'm not buying an $800 7" screen Galaxy tablet.

    Col pretty much sums up my thoughts.
    See no need to replace the iPad unless something obviously superior turns up.
    And no, flash is in no way a reason.....

    About the os

    I think the Android os sucks. My dad thinks it sucks. My uncle thinks it sucks. So in my view I will never get an android tablet or phone even if it is a billion times better as I have to be loyal to apple what the heck do you say?

    Interesting as I haven't seen one in the flesh yet, however I was really just pointing out that 10 inch screen alternatives are starting to appear now, rather than having to wait 6 months.

    I wouldn't reccomend doing either of those things. Most of the cheap Chinese ones have zero support, no marketplace, and in general perform poorly. The Galaxy performs fairly well, but it's way overpriced.

    Wait a couple months until after the holidays and you'll see quite a few released for around $300. The Notion Ink Adam is the one I'm holding out the most hope for, but the lowish screen resolution makes me nervous. Unless it receives stellar reviews, I'll look into the Acer high resolution tablets when they are released.

    I'm with Superbike81, I think a really good Android tablet will be, out in the next few months. If it's better then the iPad, the. I will probably buy it and eBay my iPad.
