    I mainly want a tablet because I'm always studying for certifications.
    All my textbooks have PDF versions so a tablet would be great instead of carrying books around.

    But I'm not gonna pay $600, that's for sure.

    I just can't figure all you Android fanboys out. Why would you want an open source operating system that's available in multiple flavors, from multiple hardware manufacturers, from multiple cellular carriers - when you can get it one way from one manufacturer that will dictate and closely control exactly what you get and how you use it? This is for your own good. HONEST!

    This open source, capitalism crap will never work. Monopoly is the wave of the future. TRUST ME!

    (and btw, don't read that ridiculous book "What Would Google Do?". What kind of stupid company would give away things that you could charge outrageous prices for? What an idiotic business model...)

    Heres one thing that android should try, User-friendliness, Apple's got it and thats why so many people have an iphone, because its a smart phone for dumb people. I for one own both my Droid and and iPod Touch and admit that I love iOS, but what I like about my droid is that it has Soooooo many features

    You'd think we were talking about choosing God or Atheism the way some people talk about this. 90% of the population couldn't care less about this. Waaaay too much dogmatism in this thread!

    By the way, I'd venture to say that Apple is the epitome of Capitalism and in no way monopolistic. I'm talking real world here, where $$ is most important because the number one goal of any company is to increase the value for shareholders. I think I could even make the argument that open-source is NOT capitalistic by its very nature.

    HELLO!!! Do you not realize that Google is an advertising company? If they give something free to the masses the customers advertising with Google are going to know its going to reach a plethora of people. Why don't you go ahead and check that little site out.....oh.. what's it called.... hmm.. its the one everyone visits to find something out..BING? HAHAHAHAHAHA no that's not it. GOOGLE!!! OH BTW, its funny that with such a terrible business plan their stock is still over 500 bucks a share.

    I hate debates why X is Better than Z. Pointless, Its all peoples of opinions. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and bashing ones opinion of a product is a mute point because it varies from person to person. I use a Macbook Pro, it does what I need it to do with build quality and battery life I want and I got a droid because it does what I need to do for a smart phone.
