I don't think other tablet makers are going to have any problem matching this.  Retail costs for flash are now under $1/GB, Apple is charging about $3/Gb to go from their base model to the 128Gb model.
Assuming the imbedded solar cell has the same characteristics as a regular solar cell, one the size of an iphone screen could fully charge the battery in 2 to 3 hours.  Mine sits on my desk most of my working hours so I could probably get by without ever having to plug it in.
I would hate to be the one in the back of a court room speaking into my iPad.  LOL...
The lack of a file system is OK if you have a few files.  Once you get get past a few dozen within the same app organization starts to become a problem.  With hundreds of files it becomes unusable.  I attended a legal proceeding and tried to load up the textual evidence on an iPad.  Even though there were hundreds if not thousands of files they fit on my 32Gb iPad.  Trying to find the file being referenced by the lawyers was next to impossible.  Windows or Mac OS laptops...
SD cards significantly cheaper than what Apple charges for internal memory.  IIRC the ipad teardown gave the cost for the 16GB memory as $5 or there abouts so Apple could certainly reduce the price points for larger memory.  With reasonable priced internal memory the SD issue would largely go away.  The issue of file organization still exists with iOS.  SD cards do offer an easy way to keep data seperated by category bu,t if possible, changes to iOS would be the best way...
The iOS file structure or lack of it needs to be addressed.  When you have 100s or 1000s of pdfs, pictures etc.  you need to be able to organize them in a structured manner.   iBooks allows a few different categories but it isn't sufficient for large numbers of documents.  Adding another 64Gb of storage is only going to make it worse. 
I'm sure the fact that 16GB are the best sellers has a lot to do with the price bump to get more.   I'm fine with 16Gb on my phone but then I don't load it up with music. My 32 GB ipad is full.  I agree with your comments on microSD but I would like a full size SD on the ipad. 
I just ugraded an XP machine to Win8.  The downloaded version is currently $40, MS claims the regular price will be $240 so that amounts to 83% off. Win8 is certainly different than Win7.  I use 7 at work and since we just upgraded from XP I doubt that I will ever have Win8 at work.  I don't have an opinion on whether 8 is better or worse than 7 but it is going to be a challenge using two different operating systems, three and 1/2 counting IOS and the rare times my...
They only struck down the false advertising claim. The trade mark saga continues.
Paper???? About half the reviews think it is great while the other half rate it as mediocre at best. I don't have it and based on the reviews its unlikely I'll try it.
