    Exactly. That's the other point I was thinking about.

    I heard it was so they would get the christmas sales, but who knows

    iPad 3 to Arrive This September? - Mac Rumors

    its all just speculation

    Personally I wouldn't be surprised at all. The iPad 2 is already behind as far as specs are concerned. If they wait a whole year its going to be WAY behind when it comes time for the holidays.

    I played with the xoom at bb and its a nice device. The guy on the news who said the xoom had lag must have not really used it. The dual core tegra 2 makes it fly and the xoom is a nice device. Motorola just can not market like apple and the fact they turned a lot of their loyal customers away by locking their phones did not help. They need to drop the price 75 bucks to compete with the ipad 2 and get back their loyal fans.

    I dont think you need the iPad 2 to kill the Xoom. The $350 iPad 1 that is right now available from Apple by itself is enough to kill it.

    Being a huge android fan, after playing with the Xoom I found that it doesnt do the tasks I use a tablet for any better than iPad 1 (web browser, netflix, e-reader, calendar).

    I thought the Mac's finally came out with a Core i7 this past month? Mac usually uses out dated processors, like they just did again as the Sandy Bridges are a totally different beast and about the same price.

    And I agree 100% with you on the last part.

    But apple does own the tablet market. As much as I hate to say that, I love android for life, but Apple did this right. First gen as well.

    Only the top of the line 15" had the Core i7

    And I dont feel like apple did the tablet right at all. Just because it holds the market-share doesn't mean they did it right. When I think of a tablet I think of something that falls right below a laptop in functionality and should be extremely close to the functionality of a netbook.

    I've had a lot of hands on with the iPad (my sister has one) and I never really felt like it was able to do the things I wanted it to do. The XOOM on the other hand is much closer to the capability of my laptop. The way I look at it the iPad is a bigger and faster version of a mobile device and the XOOM is closer to a normal computer as far as functionality is concerned.

    I can't wait for ice cream and see some of those features on the next gen of smart phones...stuff like the live widgets. I think when you see what Honeycomb is all about you're going to want a dual core LTE phone like the Bionic (although the ram might not be quite enough).

    I pad will always fail do to the retarded market, all the apps worth having cost money, and all the free ones are crap. I have owned an I pad, and the way apple operates with the hand picked apps, helps and hurts users, helps because they are more stable with there devices, hurts because all the good ones are censored.
    How many good map apps are for I pad 1 or 2 and they are not free, free ones suck. I have tried them, music and movies is OK. But prodctivity and is pathetic, And certainly not free.

    Yeah right. Apple's business model is doomed.
