    I don't think he was referring to you with his post. Think he meant the OP, but I could be wrong. God knows it wouldn't be a first. :D

    Will I do think this iPad will be outdated soon, if it's not already..

    I am disappointed that the screen resolution is only 480p..

    And Apple used the same os as iPhone.. Apple was kinda asking for it, and that's why ppl say it's just a big iPhone.. If apple didn't want ppl saying this they should have used a new and different os..

    Also they should have had 2 USB ports, FireWire, and sd slot..

    Anyway, apple is on top right now for tablets but not for much longer...

    The bigger they are the harder they fall..

    If you're thinking Android is going to have anything to touch them, especially this quickly, you're delusional. Same for anything with a Palm OS format.

    In case people aren't quite getting it, THE APPS ARE A VITAL COMPONENT FOR SUCCESS. Period.

    NOTHING will be coming out with Windows OS soon. Microsoft even gave up their project. HP hacked theirs, also.

    So what is going to be the one to take them down?

    The apps are nice, but Android has apps for pretty much everything. If you are talking about games, that might be another story. Tell me though, how will the iPad fight against an Android tablet which has these features:

    16x9 Screen
    HDMI port
    USB ports
    512 MB of ram minimum
    SD card slot for storage expansion
    Plays 1080P through HDMI port
    720P screen to view HD content on
    Fully functional bluetooth
    Ability to natively push music wirelessly to your device from your computer
    Ability to natively stream your entire music library to the device
    Ability to play mkv, avi or pretty much any other file format, in HD
    Full flash capability
    Accelerometer and GPS within the browser capable
    Text to Speech, seriously this is a killer feature iOS completely lacks
    Speech to Text to speech translation on the fly


    If you think that Apple's app store makes up for that, then there is nothing Apple could release that you wouldn't purchase as long as the app store was included. The app store on Android is impressive. While it might not have as many games or the same quality of games as the iOS devices do, I think you will see that change rather quickly.

    I am very aware of what is available in the Android store since I am on it on the rather regular basis. On the whole, I couldn't care less about the games. The business apps aren't measuring up. They do have good version of Quickoffice and several others but the depth isn't there yet. Once the finally get the platforms stabilized and common across all of their hardware, they will finally start seeing a growth in true, quality apps. By the way, the inability to load apps to an outside memory source and limiting the size of the apps themselves has been a bad hindrance. That should finally be basically corrected with Froyo, but now developers are going to have to get used to designing apps that have the ability to install on the SD cards and take better advantage of the memory.

    As far as the hardware above? Do you think this is the only version of the iPad that is going to be produced? That they are simply going to sit back and not touch it again? No advancements? Be realistic. With the exception of a few items, Apple isn't known to sit back and get walked on by other manufacturers and technologies. They will advance as they perceive threats to their technology.

    Like I said, I have the Incredible and am very aware of the Android capabilities and growth patterns for quite awhile. But they still have to catch up. Personally, i hope they do start making advancements. I don't like monopolies and competition drives the market to improve and create greater things. But i think it is going to be a ugh stretch to think Apple will sit back and roll over to other manufacturers. They will advance with the rest.

    Sure Apple will design new iPads and will introduce them in around 10 months. They will not have USB ports or HDMI out or 16x9 screens EVER though. They will always have to use the dock connector and accessories to gain what other tablets do natively, because it means more money for Apple through accessories.

    The marketplace will decide. Let's all get together in two years and see...... I'm taking a "wild" guess and saying iPad forums will still be here........

    How many years have we been hearing a "iPod" killer, is just around the corner.... oh... is that it!!!!
    Or how many years now have we heard at just about every smartphone launch "is this the iPhone killer?".....

    I think Steve Jobs sucks as a person, but he is a genus as a businessman. The products fit a market niche that others seem to be blind to. Most folks don't give a care about how many ports, or screen rez, they just want to enjoy the experience. If I'm buying stock in tablets, it's with Apple.....

    Nothing can kill the iPhone or iPad or iPod, that doesn't mean that nothing is better than those things. Apple has made their products the "cool" thing to have, which allows them to not really worry about competing with features or innovation, but rather to focus on design and making the devices more "cool".

    So if I had to bet, I would say that in 2 years the iPad will be the best selling tablet no matter what they do. They could just stagnate and double the ram for the iPad 2 and for the iPad 3 offer a USB port, and they will still sell better than any other tablet who crushes it feature wise.
