    For me Android beat iOS everytime. They say the Android Market has just reached 100,000 catching up big time. I have an iPhone 3GS and bought a Nexus One there is no going back for me. The iPhone 4 has caught up to the Nexus One but already there are device like the Droid X which blows iPhone 4 away. There are devices with bigger and better screens than Apples.

    The big feature for lots of people is the ease of use of an iPhone. If I'm in IT and being bothered with computer issues all day, the last thing I want my phone to do is give me a hard time trying to send a text. I had an Htc fuze and I had to give it up. When you can't send a text or make a call in under 15 seconds, it's a little frustrating.

    What about the tech-retarded? My folks love iPhone because it's stupidly easy to use. I don't really blame them!

    The screen resolution of the iPad is pretty much locked in for the foreseeable future. The App Store already has fragmented into iPhone apps, iPhone 4 apps, and iPad apps, all at different resolutions. I doubt they will add even more complexity to this for several years at least. Also, even when they do, they are forced to remain 4:3, so that previous apps can be scaled correctly, so you will not see a proper iPad with 16:9 resolution for video.

    My second iPad is coming in a few days, a 3G version for my wife. I have confiscated the original WIFI version I bought for her a month ago. We were fighting over who got to play with it!

    I purchased a Nook in January and although it is a great reading device nothing matches the convenience of the iPad. In fact I have not experienced any eye strain and I am using it for reading over my Nook when I can wrestle it out of my wife's hands. I also got a chance to have it for a week that I was traveling. Reading work emails, taking meeting notes, and keeping up with the latest news was a blast.

    Well Guys, the fact is, the key of the success of iPad was that apple finally being the first who had understand what's the necessity of being a portable computing device.

    Which is being "portable","easy to use" and "a kick-ass battery life"(Despite it's actually pretty fast and smooth, right?).

    I think I don't have to remind people that Apple is not the first one who make portable computers, but why it could be the only company that survived in the market? Well, we all see how successful it is. And why? You think it's simply because there's no competitors? But the truth is that the competitors have been there for years, just no one cares.

    Yes, an iPad doesn't have the jumbo features like HDMI ports, USB ports, Firewire, or SD Slots so far, but there are a lot of other better choices than a portable device for you to get a better experience with all these jumbo juicy snacks, but they are just not portable, or not fast, with extremely short battery life, which basically lack of everything of being a kick-ass portable device.

    Also, I found some people here are quite amusing as requesting for a higher resolution to support the HD movies, not that higher resolution is bad, but what are you guys expecting from a 9.7 inch "large" screen? Don't you think that those big-ass flat TV screens are more capable of giving you a true HD experience? And 16:9 ratio screen? Hell no, please, how would I read my ebooks in such a narrow width as portrait mode? Isn't it too much like reading a flyer? And what about displaying pictures? Surfing web?

    No... for next generation of iPad? I wish it could be faster, more stable, higher resolution is ok, maybe an isight, that's all. I have many computers, I don't need an iPad doing too much, better user experience of doing specific things is more important to me.

    Yes, basically this group of people just cherish their valuable time on more other things of life, rather than staring at a cellphone all day everyday.

    Basically I think you did make some good points. But about the revolution part, all due respect, I disagree.

    Technology is technology, and it is creating innovation, not revolution. A revolution is a phenomena that leads a group of people, a industry, or a country to a different level or condition. Thus, I think that many of Apple products created a "revolution".

    A revolution is marked more depend on the result, but not the beginning, not the process, nor how innovative it looks. Such as iPod, it doesn't have anything superior to any other competitors, but with the special design and marketing strategy, it changed the way of people see a MP3 player, and significantly changed the industry as how a MP3 should be like.
    Same as the iPhone, it lacks of many core features when if first released, and lack of many highly requested features even now, but it has changed the whole smartphone world, every single manufacture is copying the iPhone's industrial design, UI concept, app icons design, even the style of the marketing slogans... that's called revolution.

    Now, it's the iPad's turn. It doesn't have to be superior in hardware specification, but the user experience of the product as ONE is just SUPERB. Isn't it? Everyone in the industry is aiming and willing to challenge the huge success of the iPad, showing all different kind of reactions, like it's the biggest public enemy ever. Microsoft even declared that they've got 20 other companies together ready for fighting with the iPad. Wow, what in the world? Is this 9.7 inch tablet really possible of being so frightening? Well, it is just the way of being revolutionary. Right?

    Engadget Chronicles the Tablet Wars best

    Engadget has a free app providing access to their blog. They have a thread entitled Tablet PC's. The number of manufacturers chasing the iPad is unbelievable. I don't understand why I get so much more info from their App (as opposed to their web site).

    If you're interested, download their App to your iPod or iPad. Invoke the App, choose Engadget, Select Topics (at the bottom). Then scroll down to Tablets.
