    Here is a funny story from our sister-site, Android.net. Toshiba created a slick teaser website for showing off their 'soon-to-come' new Honeycomb Android 3.0-based Toshiba Tablet. The funny kicker is that if you try to access the site from an iOS device like the Apple iPad, you get the above picture...

    Nice one toshiba! :rockon:

    The fact that a major company did this is hilarious.

    Fixed it.

    Enough talk... Time to put your cards on the table.

    This is well and good but quality Android tablets are taking their sweet time getting to the market. Sorry if I'm a little impatient.

    thats pretty awesome for a major company. i still think the ipad 2 might be better, but this is pretty awesome marketing. (it depends how the toshiba tablet and ipad 2 turn out, both should be pretty good)

    The genius of this is how many people with IPad's do you actually think would go to that site (probably almost 0, outside of tech bloggers)? This thread here is an example of exactly what they were hoping to accomplish.
