    Well iPad is cool, I have a htc flyer first before iPad but after I use iPad, it's so easy to use. That's people always says apple is users friendly. Thumbs up for apple.

    You are right there, but if it had a flash player, that would make it even better. However they are fantastic.

    Would you be happy with a Flash player and a 5 hour battery life? Flash on my HTC - even the cut down mobile version which does not play Flash apps - cuts my battery life in half

    I don't buy the battery life argument with Flash. I just want it forvthe occasional web site that needs it. I wouldn't be running Flash 100% of the time, probably less than 5%.

    At least not having Flash you don't get the annoying ads!

    I use a flashblocker on my pc

    The thing I like about iOS, especially comming from a strict 20 year background in Windows, is the fact Apple have this 'closed' system where I do what they say. I love it. Easy. No faffing about, nothing to personally mess up or configure, no indifference. It's almost holding my hand through the device every time I use it. Like a breath of fresh air.

    To most peeps this is a major restriction. Most don't like their liberties infringed like this. Fine, up to them, but this isn't how Apple intend it.
    Apple want a universally and completely accessible easy operating system that a complete idiot can operate in his sleep.
    My aged mother and father, who've never even touched a mouse before in their lives, can quickly pick up the vibe on how an iPad works, and actually embrace and enjoy it after several minutes realising, (like Windows stuff frequently will), it won't bite, break or mess up.

    But try an Android system with them and it's a 100% non starter guaranteed.

    it's cool to hate Apple (I'm not a huge fan) but they do make exceedingly good mobile devices. I myself am techie to a degree, and yes, the freedom of an HTC gives me more options, but I don't wont them. I really don't. iOS gives me what I want. If you want more then jail break or jump ship even. iOS must be taken at what it is, then embrace it or leave it.

    Also, the iPad hardware is a beautifully proven and tested bit of kit, being uber sexy to boot. This to me is another major selling experience. No other tablet on the Market can stand up to the iPad in looks alone let alone smoothness of swiping and operating.

    Personally, I can live without Flash

    What was the question again?

    I have used several windows computers over the years, 95,98, millennium , xp, vista and now seven and there is often problems with the systems and quite honestly none of them compare to the iPad . The clarity on the screen makes a big difference to viewing for long periods.

    but then i'd never personally compare a Windows desktop operating system to a portable device ios like you are. it's apples and pears.

    i'd always always plump for Windows OS of mac OSX for desk top operating, hands down, but for mobile devices? i've never used a Windows mobile OS to compare.

    This is a great post. I do agree that flash would be great though and don't understand why it can't be setup to only turn on when a site requires it. Seems like a simple thing to do.

    I totally agree with the simplicity of the iPad. My wife has tech issues, yet she figured the thing out totally by herself. This is a girl that struggled using a mouse for weeks. I bought her an android phone and it is taking her longer and with more frustration to understand it. She probably would do better with an iPhone, but that is another story.
