Based on the caps lock and the vitriol in this post, I don't know if this guy/girl has ever even held a Galaxy, Xoom, or iPad. I can't read the post count since I'm using the app, but I imagine its <10...Quote:
XOOM.....NO FLASH.....NO NELFIX.....NO HAPTIC.....WHERE'S THE BAROMETER.....NO FM RADIO.....NO XM / SIRUS SATELLITE RADIO BUILT IN.....NO 3D. THIS XOOM THING I OWN AND GOING TO RETURN TO BEST BUY IS A HALF BAKED PREMATURE BIRTH JUNK. MANY MANY TABS WILL BE OUT SOON PUTTING THIS THING BACK ING THE BOX JUST LIKE THAT CRAPPY GALAXY TAB I TOOK BACK. HOW DISAPPOINTING. SEEMS IPAD IS THE ONLY TAB EVEN WITHOUT FLASH YHAT IS PRETTY MUCH JAMMING STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX.
I prefer the iPad, its a much smoother and more rewarding device, to me anyway. But with that being said, the Galaxy and Xoom are not the Archos or the Kmart Tablet, they are actually really great devices. My whole point was not to put down the Android tablets, it was merely to point out that iPad1 is much, much more responsive, even with much lesser specs.
And about the Playbook... All of you are selling the PB way too short. I am 100% sure that the PB will outsell the Xoom. It has much better looking hardware and equivalent specs, it also should be able to run all Android apps, as well as RIM's "super apps", all while retaining a $500 price point. It also has a new OS built specifically for dual-core cpus.
