    What is surprising is that they voted for iPad as the Tablet Of The Year, bearing in mind that the award is voted for by all Apple's competitors. It seems to show that even its competitors realise that the iPad is generations ahead of the rest of them!



    your logic is broken.

    but I have to say that the Galaxy s2 is very nice just to big for my comfort but much props to Samsung..

    However in terms of software it is a different story altogether!



    So you think Apple should drop back from Bluetooth 4.0, get rid of the backlit camera sensor, cut back on the audio quality (particularly with headphones), get rid of GLANOSS compatability from the GPS and stop making the 64GB model just to match the Galaxy S2 hardware?



    I hope not, Apple is moving forward not backwards.

    Global Mobile Awards Chief is sitting down talking to Samsung exec and all of a sudden feels something bump into his leg three times. He looks down and sees nothing but three bundles of $100.00 bills. He then looks up in the direction of the arm holding the bills in and sees that Samsung is bribing him. He then accepts the money after the Samsung exec says. We want to support your firm. Now its all a matter of money now isn't it. Being that Apple diet feel that bribery is key in the award they came out second on the smart phone. Oh well. Its the sales that matter not the little award that will collect dust.



    And for all of you who think my spelling and grammar is terrible. I personally now of two people registered here. Please remember I am a Disabled VET with a head injury. So please be patient with me. Thank you.

    oh wait? they named the iPad best tablet...ummm maybe they aren't.



    Realistically, it would have been a bit of a stretch to choose any other tablet. With the phones there were believable alternatives.

    Your posts increasingly seem to resemble elevator music. Especially since you changed your user name. Is it just boredom with the topics?

    He misses the controversy that came with his old account. The controversy that, I'm sure he remembers, got that account silenced in the first place.



    So he posts increasingly polarized nonsense for the purpose of any response.

    I'm also a disabled VET with a head injury!



    Was it a cat or a dog that got you?



    Spelling and grammar aside, my observations on your posts is that your attitude sucks, so don't expect anybody to go easy on you soon...

    Motorola would give their nuts to make a profit.

    Another one with broken logic, support is pre profit and paid for with Apple care. Accessories and developers don't come from Apples profit.

    I command MWC on their well camouflaged affirmative action agenda. A stuttering copycat masterpiece gets rewarded on an equal footing with an eloquent original one. And the Master craftsman gets its flagship unvarnished by a master cheat among cheats in the process.



    Could there be class warfare at MWC? Classy Apple vs the classless rest?



    All that's left for the Courts of Law to ponder is whether intellectual property would be better safeguarded were we to implement a Taliban-like interpretation of the law: a raped woman should be severely sanctioned for having unwillingly lost her virginity; a robbed Apple should be ostracized for having unwittingly forfeited its creativity...



    The sheer thrills of public flogging, ...literally or figuratively, work wonders for the sexually repressed, ...be they in Taliban or in Blog land territory.

    Not when it's covered by warranty, where for a Galaxy S2, for example, it would be sent to a service centre for repair.
