PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "I just gave the new iPad an Editors' Choice award for large tablets, but frankly it was a foregone conclusion. The iPad doesn't get the award because of its hardware, lovely as the hardware is. It gets the award because its apps are generally better than the apps available for Android tablets." The laptop gap may have been closed, but the tablet gap sure hasn't.

When looking at my Android pad, the iPad users I work with find that they would like to exchange the product,

Never witnessed that on my side. On the contrary, most of my colleagues and friends who decided to opt for any of the Android tablets ended up, a few months later, selling them back and going for the iPad. From my surrounding, Android tablets doesn't seems to catch on at all.

the iPad's have all kinds of resets which of course you only know about when the Apple pops up on the screen.

What is that? Never seen any case like that, and I've been using (and dev'd for) multiple since 2007. I think I've seen a totally of 3 fatal OS crash in this half decade. I seriously doubt that you are witnessing constant ones, unless on a very old device or even more likely a badly jailbroken one.

The home button decides on it's own whether or not it wants to work on any given day,

Oh come on now, are you making stuff up? ;)

who can tolerate that playschool interface.

This is clearly a matter of taste. Many loves it, many don't. Considering the huge success of the iOS family of device, I'd say a LOT of people loves its interface.
