    Just curious cause everyone says android is the future. I know apple will never run android on a an iPad but let's just say out if the blue they did....would you be for or against it? I fiddled around with the xoom the other day to get an idea of how honeycomb works but it's just too confusing to me. The whole wimblets things just isnt for me.

    Not at this time. I really like the "it just works" thing. I'll let someone else play with troubleshooting and modifications thanks.

    If the iPad 2 hardware ran completed Honeycomb and had a few extra ports, it would be an absolutely amazing tablet.

    I could see how widgets would be confusing at first for someone who is used to pages and pages of icons in iOS. It literally couldn't get simpler than pages and pages of icons. The thing is, widgets are pretty cool and allow you to see a lot of information without having to go into and out of several apps.

    not a chance. The biggest reason i pay the apple price is because of its operating system. Nothing comes close.

    When it comes down to it, its not all about hardware. Having an amazing OS is much more important to me.

    Right there I would already ask "who's 'everyone' and why are they saying it?" I'm neither for or against it, but an iPad that ran Android wouldn't quite be an iPad anymore, would it? (At what point does an iPad cease to be an iPad if you could change the operating system is what I'm asking back.)

    Probably. It would be the best Android tablet out there, hardware wise.
