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.

I moved in the reverse direction: I had an iPad 1, I was taken in by the Apple marketing, and the absence of comparable Android devices at the time (the closest thing was the original Samsung Galaxy Tab, with its 7 inch screen and Android 2.1). I sold my iPad to a friend and put the proceeds towards the TF-101 the minute it was released, and I have to say I'd never look back. I find, for my uses, the Android market has never failed me. The visual quality of the apps isn't there, sometimes, but the functional quality outstrips the iTunes store by miles. Asus has, somehow, made a loyal customer out of me, with this, and a loyal customer is something I don't like to be (because loyal customer is one step away from "fanboy").
