    Looks pretty smooth. But I'll still go with the iPad. Just for the quality of apple.

    I have heard good things about this on my Crackberry site! Now that was pretty cool, that they can minimize on there ~ they also had the movie playing, and other screens right next to it!

    Pretty cool.

    But ~

    I simply love my iPad!

    That's a real multi-task, with Flash and HDMI.
    But I don't like the size. I preferred much more the iPAD size or the Motorola one.
    And did you notice, they don't want to talk about the Battery life. Probably for a good reason. The iPAD by far exceeds any other Tablet.

    The iPad has very good battery life, but it's not some kind of programming magic or super special low power hardware, it just has a physically HUGE battery.

    The Blackberry tablet does look cool, but I'll pass on it simply because it's not going to have has many app choices as the iPad or any of the Android tabs.

    Hmm, at only 100 grams they cant have much of a battery, that is for sure. There is a reason the iPad weighs 1.5 lbs.

    It is interesting that in a survey taken of iPad owners the number one thing people said they liked was the battery life. As SJ said, you can't really call it wireless if the battery has to be plugged in to an outlet all day long :)

    Worth waiting a month to see if the iPad2 can do the same and thereby save all the money you have invested in apps.

    It's the software that's important and what you can do with it.

    The iPad battery is 6600mAh, compared to 4000mAh in the Galaxy Tab. It's a BIG battery.

    Programming magic and low power hardware are part of the equation.

    It's approximately 50% bigger, but the tablet is also proportionately 50% bigger.

    However, the Galaxy Tab isn't on par with the iPad's battery life. The iPad is double the life, while only being 50% larger and heavier. That's significant.

    One example of how efficient the iPad's power consumption is compared to a similar screen sized tablet; the Netbook Navigator has a 8.9" lower resolution and dimmer display, and it weighs a half a pound more than the iPad. It should have better battery life, based on weight, smaller screen size, and lower brightness/resolution. The Navigator's battery lasts a paltry 2 hours and 25 minutes. Less than a quarter of the iPad.

    mAh isn't the whole story. Apple's A4 processor is optimized not only for the OS, but for less battery consumption. And then there is all the engineering and programming in between. So it does have programming magic and low power hardware after all. ;)
