I have to say that I’m starting to get a little tired of hearing that this or that tablet is an iPad rival or even killer! This post at gadgetlab seems quite positive about it though.

I’d rather that device manufacturers focused more on how Apple develop products like the iPad rather than just trying to be ‘me to’ companies. I think if they did that we might see some more interesting hardware possibilities emerge rather than just chasing an existing form factor.

Having said that the new tablet from Samsung which is meant to be released today looks like it might be the iPad of Android, although it is probably too early to tell.



  1. Nothing can touch the ipad cause its about the apps. Id feel cheated if i bought a tab only to find out i could have had an ipad for cheaper.

    I love android i sorted my wife out with a galaxy s and i have a desire. but when it comes to music ios is way in front with apps. Normal app are near enough and games are catching up.

  2. From what I've seen so far on my old G1. Android music is about 2 years behind iOS as far as I can see.

    I'm hoping that this will improve as Android NDK improves, but there are still issues with audio drivers.
