"Are we talking about the same TouchPad?
I am an avid Android user but I never bought an Android tablet (sans my Kindle Fire which is nothing but a media-consuming/shopping etc device for my wife and daughter) but I did pick up few TouchPads during the fire sale and hell, yes, it's a LOT nicer than Android, browsing is smoother and overall the UI mops the floor with Android."
In your opinion. You provide no evidence in your rant. I took exception to the way it handled elements fixed positions. In my experience/opinion, the Android browser is far superior. But that's my opinion.
Also, my Andriod phone (underpowered compared to the touchpad) launches apps much quicker and is generally as smooth/smoother. I prefer the Android UI.
"Complaining about lack of apps clearly shows you don't have a clue about tablets,"
"let alone that this iPad-induced idiocy of paying for apps, only to use the same resources you can use for FREE on the internet in any other OS, should die quickly."
I could have been clearer here, some apps that I use on a regular basis did not have equivalents when I looked. I have never paid for an app, and my post does not imply that I have.
"Lack of options? You mean like by default, out of the box you can enter a public code and voila', you are root?"
You've named one option... that most people probably don't care about, and that I certainly don't care about. Most of the options pages for the apps that shipped with the device were pretty light. I wanted to turn the ripple effect off when you tap it, but couldn't. I saw no widgets to add to the home screen. I wanted to turn the elastic effect of the browser off but did not see a way of doing that.
"Man, you don't have the slightest farting clue what you are talking about,"
I'm talking about my own experiences with the TouchPad, and disagree with you on this one.
