Apple So, yeah, uhm, I bought an iPad 2 today. I still don't think anyone really needs a tablet, but that doesn't mean I didn't want one. I wanted to wait until the HP TouchPad was announced, but now that it has, it seems it won't be coming to The Netherlands any time soon. As such, the iPad 2 it was. A few quick fist impressions.

Motorola Xoom is not the "bestest" Android in terms of *UI* speed: the Samsung Galaxy S-II or the Nexus S, or that new LG phone are (according to various benchmarks online). So while in the iOS world you need a tablet to get the best performance out of the OS (since in a tablet Apple can simply pack "more" of the same kind of hardware found on iPhone/iPod), the same is not necessarily true in the Android world. Different Android phones/tablets use so many different chipsets and UIs (and some of these chips are better in 3D rather than in 2D, or the other way around), that not all Android devices perform equally. So don't generalize please.
