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.

Ridiculous article...............

That article was a load of bullsh*t. Apps for Android tablets are not hard to find, and I could care less about the number of games. There isn't a single thing that can be done with an iPad that I am missing with my Android. In fact, it's really just the opposite.
Browsing and typing is MUCH easier on an Android device thanks to the use of SwiftKey Tablet X, in which my soft keyboard is split on the screen making is very easy to type with just my thumbs.
If I wanna take notes in a meeting, no problem - I sync it with my Zagg bluetooth keyboard, open up Quickoffice HD and start typing away. I have the documents stored in my Google Docs account so I can access those notes from anywhere.
If I'm sitting at my desk and writing some mundane code, I plug in my earbuds, open up my Google Music app and listen to my entire music collection while I bang away at the keyboard.
If I get a call and need to check on something in the office, I open up LogMeIn Ignition and connect to my computer easily with that.
If I'm bored and want to watch a movie, I can rent one through Google Play, or watch one through Netflix, Epix, Crackle, etc.....
