I would not mind getting an iPad but the price is just nuts. I'm going to have to say I will go Android. My father, sister, and brother in law are all Apple nuts though and are excited for the new iPad. I think they already have them reserved.

I don't have room for more tech beyond my laptop, smartphone, and Xbox. Honestly these things keep me entertained for all free hours of the day, so I don't see the need for one of these things:



The only thing that COULD change my mind is if I can be convinced that this is a more worthwhile investment for reading books, as I have been pondering the pros and cons of a Kindle for a while now. I don't read that many books anymore (burned out on it in university), but the prospect of getting them for a couple bucks each instead of $25 a pop and reading them digitally is enticing.

And yes, RIM products suck ass and that company is on it's way out. My Blackberry will die by fire when it is replaced. What does Samsung have? I love their products, they tend to get the job done.

So much stock around Canada pretty surprised. To whoever got it, how do you find it? Big difference between iPad 2?

That statement is soooo true, they try to compete and fail. Apple releases one version per year and every other tablet maker scrambles to catch up, Apple doesn't follow; it sets the bar.

Being called a fanboy is ludicrous, that title is reserved for something that is not really mainstream or a niche. Apple is the most valuable company on the planet, worth more than Google/Motorola & Microsoft Combined.

Some fail yes, but I wouldn't say all fail. The only reason you don't see as many in the mainstream is because they don't advertise them and overhype them like Apple does. And I still think Apple has fanboys, everything does. I have so many friends that used to hang on every word Steve Jobs said, and if he said they didn't need it, they didn't need it. FANBOYS!

Yeah I can be considered an Android fanboy, but I prefer the open source of the OS and the options over one single tablet that is overhyped for features that Android has had before it. It may be the thing for most people and thats what Apple sells to, but I don't think that makes it a superior product.

Thanks.
Here is a link to the Asus Transformer Prime that I have: http://eee.asus.com/eeepad/transformer-prime/features/

Here is the next line that they have coming out, and I think the Infinity will be the iPad's toughest competition: http://eee.asus.com/global/event/2012/mwc/launch/

Yeah I use it quite a bit for work. It's especially handy if you have the keyboard. I haven't got a keyboard for this one yet but I still plan to. They have just been so hard to get ahold of!

Hmm... Steve Jobs didn't seem to care for keyboards anymore. No sale.
