But when Apple changes their position, the fanbois change their story along with Apple and deny ever dismissing those feature requests. Or they try to spin it as "Apple was going to do it eventually". Or worse, "Apple did it just to shut people up".
But, were there not stories on AI and other sites
that showed the internal guts of the iPad showing a mount where a camera could be hooked up? And not having a camera in the first iPad iteration and Samsung Galaxy Tab does, does not mean Samsung came up with a good idea. It's not as if miniature cameras are new or anything and is a revolutionary, game changing, good idea. It could be considered rather an 'inevitable' addition. And I'd much rather have a tablet OS built from the ground up versus MS trying to stuff a desktop Windows into a tablet form or have Google say their latest Android OS is not tablet optimized, so Samsung sticks in an even earlier version of Android OS into their device over whether the first iPad has a camera or not any day!
By the same rationale you can write to Samsung about this video ad
and tell them to not highlight everything that the iPad already does, Navigation, e-Reading (Apple needs to give that up to Kindle, also), Web Browsing, Augmented Reality... The only thing Samsung can "tout" as remotely new and different from the iPad and Great Ideas is Video Conferencing... Right?!... Because didn't Apple's iPad already have the "great idea" of the other talking points?
What truly is rationalizing, by fanbois and non fanbois alike, is wondering why Samsung didn't put forth the Galaxy Tab
prior to the iPad? Instead of the rush job they have coming out now. And when I say rush job, I mean where Google
itself said Android OS is not optimised for the tablet even at it's most latest rendition, 2.2 Froyo, which is not what is in this machine.
It appears the Galaxy Tab and Dell Streak just want to ride on the coat-tails of Apple's iPad success of their version of a "tablet" as a 'me-too' so called competitor. Apple took the risk and Samsung and Dell wants to hog the lime life with their so called tablet and reap the possible rewards of Apple's blood, sweat and tears. Really great idea. Wow, has it been six months now?...
