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.

iPad (1) owner here. I really like iOS and very much dislike Android which totally pains me because I absolutely love the Transformer Prime as a piece of hardware. I'm not talking processor or storage or memory: I think if you start to think that way then you're lost.

No, this is because I think it's a beautifully designed piece of kit in a great form factor. Right now, it looks to me to be the nicest most flexible bit of mobile computing hardware out there.

In principle the PadPhone looks even better. Having one (flexible) device for mobile computing and mobile communication would be excellent.

This will sound like a 'fanboi' but since I am a fan of the Apple mobile (i)OS, if Apple were to copy the form factor I'd be seriously considering buying it.

I like the form and design so much I'm tempted to buy it even whilst I really dislike Android. That's how good I think it is.
