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.

In short, iPad2 is still cheaper and is a better option.

I would compare iPad2 to Transformer Prime, not Galaxy Tab.

Better option? Probably, but of course that's subjective.

Cheaper? Depends on the configuration: I offered three comparisons and the iPad is cheaper only if you go for the Wi-Fi only, 16 GB model -- and I didn't hunt for the cheapest Galaxy Tab either.

I would compare iPad2 to Transformer Prime, not Galaxy Tab.

This, on the other hand, makes little sense. Weren't we talking about the iPad vs. the Galaxy Tab? It was you that came up with prices made out of thin air, wasn't it? ;-)

My price was base on the price of an iPad2 and a Galaxy Tab 10.1 in store. Still 100USD difference in my local store(1369LTL vs 1649LTL).

PS: If Transformer Prime was on the store shelves, I would have got one. I just don't buy stuff without seeing it fist hand turned on.
