>there's not an awful lot of difference<
Looking at the pictures I'm surprised Apple hasn't hauled them into court already over look and feel.
>the 4:3 ratio is the ideal for tablets<
>there's no memory card slot... TouchPad's screen looked less crisp than Apple's... the touchscreen felt less sensitive than those of other tablets... My first-gen iPad feels smoother<
In other words, utter fail - back to the drawing board... Either be very cheaper or create something better than the competition.
>WebOS is way more cloud-centric than iOS<
Which is great, until everyone is paying per Mb for internet access, or the American government close huge swathes of it down chasing piracy with Thor's sledge hammer.
>Adobe Flash-equipped, natch - browser<
Plus 1 (thanks Google+).
>communicate with HP's WebOS 2.0-based smartphones<
Very RIM like.
Jeez, is anyone trying to innovate in the market anymore? Whatever happened to the Notion Ink Adam? In all honesty I might have gone for this tablet but for the missing SD slot, that just smacks of corporate greed.
So now the market awaits the Amazon tablet with trepidation and hope, and as more times goes by I get further locked into the Apple eco system as I spend more on apps, wondering what the ipad 3 will be like...
Smiley for the contentment induced by my ipad first gen (except for the missing Flash and SD support).
