Will it be iPad killer? --Wiipad NeNo 10.2" android 2.1 Tablet 1Ghz
Old news...... you signed up just to post that? Wow........
It might kill an iPad - if you dropped it on one...
So, where can I buy this right now? If its not out yet, whats the official release date?
I dont get everyone's obsession with something being an ipod, iphone, ipad "killer". There will be a lot of tablets out there eventually. The iPad will always be a strong contender. Personally, I dont make my purchasing decision over whatever is the biggest seller. If someone makes the perfect tablet for me and they only sell 1000 of them, I will buy it and be happy. It doesn't have to be a "killer" of anything. I don't care what everyone else is buying. Its interesting from a news standpoint, but I have no personal investment in how Microsoft or Apple or Google or anyone else does as far as sales.
I think the point is, the best seller seems to be the best seller for a reason. If the "killer" device really were a killer it would sell the most.
iPad sold 3 million is 60 days because it is a superior product. JooJoo sold 20 because it is an unknown company and by what I've seen a seriously inferier product.
People don't buy apple products because they are made from apple (true a level of trust comes with the brand...because they tend exceed expectations!)...if apple made a crappy product they would be slammed harder than anyone at this point. It was imperative that iPad met both quality and affordability expectations...and once again expectations were heavily exceeding.
I have to say it almost looks like a photoshop....why would they make it look exactly like an iPad? Pretty lame.
The hardware isn't going to be the locking point for iPad "killers" right now. Until they get more aftermarket support from accessories sellers and better, more professional apps, they aren't a consideration. Android stands a good chance at becoming a viable entity, but their apps are what is killing them now. Until they get some standardization, they are going to have a very difficult time getting good, solid apps produced.
Are there some out there? Yes, but on the whole, the apps are not good. The quality ones are great but the platform is still too fragmented. That is the reason I went with the iPad (whenever it gets here).
And before being called an Apple "fanboy" or any other such garbage, yes, I have full knowledge and experience in the Android operating systems. I have a Droid Incredible for my phone. It's nice and works great since I can't get the iPhone on Verizon, but I definitely wouldn't say the Android system has found itself to be on a level playing field with Apple yet working with this phone.
I've already put my order in! I also bought the custom NeNoNuNu case and all available accessories. The NeNoNitWit order site says my unit is being built on Neptune and is scheduled for shipment in late 'summer'. I may not sleep for the next few months in anticipation. I've already sold my iPad - junk!
