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.

For musicians

For musicians, Android just hasn't arrived. While iOS enjoys amazing apps like ThumbJam, Garageband, and NanoStudio, latency issues prevent that level of quality on the Android side.

That's a real shame, because I'm tired of Apple and still want small, flexible, highly portable looping and effects. I can't say I believe in Java when LLVM is around either. Maybe the surging interest in GTK+ 3.x and Vala will make for a better Linux mobile platform?
