Apple Even though I was extremely sceptical of this whole tablet thing, I bought an iPad 2 a few weeks ago. Obviously, this occasion couldn't pass by without a proper review of the thing on OSNews, so here we are. Inside, my view on the iPad 2, and more importantly, how my perception of tablets has been turned around completely.

I just got myself a tablet a week ago and so far I am loving it. I went with Android however, not Apple: it's a 10" Honeycomb tablet with 32Gb internal storage, 32Gb SDHC card, 720p native resolution, 720p/1080p HDMI output, and not only a regular USB client port but also a normally-sized USB-host port meaning that I can plug in USB keyboards, mice, storage, gamepads etc. on it!

The hardware is great, but software... well, Android doesn't make it easy to multitask, like for example it doesn't show which apps are still running when you tap on the recently-opened list - button. The Market is a horrible mess with crapware, Google not enforcing the categories meaning that stuff is all over the place, and so on and so forth. Ther is also no help-functionality unless an application provides such itself, there are no explanations for all the options in the settings... basically, it feels really raw and very non-geek hostile.
