    Okay, I know my question look dumb. But everyone don't like the same thing always. One of my friend is a hardcore android fan. So I show her my new iPad 4 and after she use it for a while she don't like my device system (I really don't know why) but she do like one thing and that's the retina display. So is there any android device out there which OS is android but have a decent display. I am dumb but even I know no android device have such thing though I ask in case who knows. So if any one know any android device like that then please share the name.

    Retina display is simply Apple's name for a display that it of such high resolution that the eye cannot differentiate the individual pixels so, no, there is no Android device with a Retina display but, yes, there are plenty with displays that are just as good.

    Hope that answers your question.

    It's all about the resolution. 2048x1536 resolution makes the current Ipads have a good display. There actually is one that can beat it in resolution though. The Nexus 10 has a resolution of 2560x1600.

    Copying, like how Apple made a mini long after other companies, lol? That's typical of businesses in general. Success breeds imitation.

    I hope you can convince your friend to go with the, IMO, superior OS. :)

    The nexus 10 has the highest resolution of any tablet, but you can't really seen the differences unless you are like 5 inches from the screen. Asus has the infinity pad at like 1900 by 1600 and Acer A700 has the same resolution. The kindle hd 8.9 is very close to the iPads screen. I believe one of the nooks is also very close too. But the kindles and nooks have such thick skins that, IMO, they cannot be said to be true Android tablets, if you are looking for a true android experience. They are what they are, though, and if that suits you you will Like them just fine. Neither one of them could suit me. However. I got the nexus 10 and as a device, it is great. Tablet apps suck, in terms of numbers of them, which is a big downside, IMO. I like cool apps....to me, they are what makes tablets of any real interest..if all I want to do is surf, email, and watch movies, any laptop will do that just fine.

    Apple is typically not first with an idea, but they are usually first to figure out how to make a profit from said ideas. Clearly, this is much more important.

    As a consumer, I look at value for my money, so profit margin is irrelevant to me when I shop.

    Same for me. In fact, I have never made a purchase with any concern whatsoever about somebody's profit margin. I seriously doubt anyone else does. Yet, apple manages to be very profitable when others before it and after have not.

    I separate my investment strategy from my consumption. When I shop, what I get out of the transaction is what counts. So yes, I will pay more in instances when I see higher value.

    Sometimes, some companies deliver great value to me, but they might not be making much profit. That's their prob. If they can't figure out how to run their business, too bad for them.

    When I invest, I filter from a different perspective.

    I don't have allegiance toward companies in either case. If they can't deliver for me, I move on. I'm not emotionally invested in them.

    Ergo, "never fall in love with a stock."

    I enjoyed the back and forth. Thanks for the feedback.
