Re: As I have said a million times

"The one thing iPads do still have going for them is that they are one of the very few tablets to have a usefully-shaped screen. Nearly everything else is too shallow to be practical."

hear! hear! The iPad's 4:3 aspect ratio is ideal, though I would say that Microsoft's Surface tablets are also decent at 3:2 (with much better pen input than the iPad Pro). The slavish conformity to 16:9 for most tablets and displays are counterproductive and waste valuable real estate in the hand or on the desk.

The other thing iPads still do well that Android has pretty much given up on is consistently low-latency audio in/out. There are some great audio processing apps for iOS that blow away anything on Android. I do understand this is because Apple is the only game in town for iOS devices and Google lets anyone build an Android tablet
