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.

The tethering is unfortunate but I do "think different". I'm tired of Android everywhere. Android is suffering from over exposure. What RIM is doing with their acquisition (QNX) is admirable and they are putting out regular updates to overcome the initial shortcomings. And RIM has TAT (The Astonishing Tribe) so hopefully the UI shall be awesome. I hope to own a Blackberry smartphone but it'll have to wait until they upgraded the OS to QNX.

Take a look at the new HP tablets. They look sweet and aren't Android or iOS. I'm not too familiar with Palm or webOS. But, I assume it's not even Linux. Never the less, the videos show it off nicely on HP's site.

WebOS is based on Linux. Nothing against Linux but I just prefer something more exotic hence QNX on Playbook. That said HP TouchPad is an interesting tablet and its UI implementation is more polished than Honeycomb I have to say and conceptually more original.
