Funny, that's the same ratio of perspiration to inspiration as in genius...

You can't get very far with a Psychology BS...more like Psychology PhD. Try to design systems based on 99% kinematics results in systems that miss the human aspect and addresses only the body aspect. As in "nice feeling tablet...too bad the workflow and usability sucks and it's as ugly as a brick".

I don't recall Tog's background but Jef's was CS and philosophy or music if I remember right.

No. I simply don't care about Android

iPad is one of the few items I have bought which I like more each day I use it.

If by 'everyone' you mean you and your lacking ability to comprehend written language, then Yes, 'everyone.'

Now do you have anything constructive/intelligent to add to the topic at hand, or is your mission solely to wage personal attacks?

Neither Verizon nor T-Mobile charge anything extra to utilize the Galaxy Tab's 3g Mobile Hotspot feature.

It's a very nice 'value added' bit from both carriers - IMO.

i think vlingo is better on android especially since you can't run 'incar' on ios yet.

but there is that 'not quite there' zone with many android apps.

when apple stops banning whatever they feel like banning in app store and tones down the whole control freak attitude i would go back to iphone (maybe).

Where were you? People on this site did question what the sales figures from Apple meant, particularly since Apple has been the groundbreaker/innovator in these new markets with so many naysayers trying to stop the stampede. You might also give us credit for recognizing daft engineering when we see it and questioning the gullibility of consumers to buy it.

600k devices may not match Apple, but its still pretty impressive. Microsoft would probably cream their pants if they could sell 600k Zunes in one month against Apple, so hats off to Samsung.

Hmmm?

I own enough Apple wares to fully understand both their attributes as well as their deficiencies.

Additionally: You might want to read the thread topic again, given that it is worded in a manner that directly compares its sales numbers against those of Samsung's Galaxy Tab (among other underlying things).

I think you're trolling but WTF, I'm bored and maybe you're open to reason.

I'm running the latest version of iOS on my 2-and-a-half-year-old iPhone 3G and have yet to find a newer app that doesn't run well on it. My Android phone, barely over a year old at this point, is already stuck at v. 2.1 and has problems even with running apps that came out when it was new.

I suspect you don't actually have intimate, firsthand experience with both platforms. If you did, you'd see clearly that, while there may be fragmentation on both, only one actually suffers to such a degree that it affects user experience and degrades device functionality.

FWIW, Froyo has been out for over six months at this point and it still isn't the predominant version of Android out there.

http://developer.android.com/resourc...-versions.html

You seriously consider that to be comparable to whatever negligible fragmentation exists amongst iOS devices?

It will be impressive if it's sustained. Remember, there's always a burst of sales for a device that gets any amount of publicity or hype and the Galaxy has certainly not lacked either of those. If they can continue to sell in those numbers in the coming months, then sure, it will be impressive. Initial sales of a device, especially where there's pent-up geek demand, is almost meaningless.

And yes, that applies to Apple's products too. I don't ever buy into the hype over initial sales. I think that's pointless.

The discussion wasn't about 'degree' of fragmentation, merely that it exists on both platforms... which it certainly does.

Thanks for the input nonetheless.

android is a f'ed up mess.
anyone buying an android device without putting in a lot of study time into just what you are getting is a fool. new devices with 1.6? its just f****** dumb. i really hope they put the stops on that crap.
but you can walk in off the street, buy an iphone 4 and know next to nothing and be pretty happy with it.

i am amazed that there are 600k idiots out there who would buy this thing. even google says 2.2 is crap for tablets. has to be BS on that number?

I am wrong? But didnt Apple sell a million in less than month only in North America? w/o 3G? full price, no contracts?

And doesn't everyone remember when the Palm Pre "sold" 300K units, but it was more like 300K units shipped to vendors? Then they promptly went BOGO on the PRE, and even quicker to bankruptcy. So 600K shipped to multiple international vendors sounds like the whole production run shipped to vendors.

Apple SOLD everything they had, and had to cut off the sales off their site. Where were the lines for the Galaxy Tab? I have yet to see one anywhere.

Could simply be that consumers buying Galaxy Tabs are just far less fanatical/cultish than their Cupertino-loving counterparts.

Who Knows... Who Really Cares, because the numbers are solid, and the device is outstanding for those who embrace what it has to offer.

Personally, I don't care if they sold but one, as long as that one was to me, because I absolutely appreciate mine.

Not justifying, just attempting to explain the #'s -apple always states the number sold is the number sold to end users. Most other companies state sales when they mean shipped to resellers - best buy, etc.

We'll have to wait and see what the actual sales numbers are, but I remain skeptical - ESP. Considering hp's breakthrough tablet sales of 9,000 units.

Ah, brilliant. Equivocate over the meaning of "fragmentation" and move the goalposts when the discussion gets uncomfortable. Classic, over-defensive response of the typical platform warrior.

The point is that fragmentation is negligible on iOS to the point of being a non-issue. Can't say that about Android. And I use both phones daily so I know firsthand. Do you?

ACTUALLY, when the ipad's first numbers came out, they in fact did contain the numbers sold to Best Buy, not just to the end user.

So ermmm... yeah....

3. Due to the UI on mobile devices, not all apps need to be multitasking.

For those apps which need to be multitasking, ios allows those apps access to multitasking services to handle background processing, streaming, etc. Between ios multitasking services, and notifications, battery, CPU, and memory usage are minimized.

That's why IOS devices get excellent battery life and android devices don't.

1. - No it isn't.
2. - No it doesn't.
3 - then close it.

Seriously, you'll lose the multitasking debate... Don't even bother starting it.

Considering all of the misinformation you spout, I seriously doubt you own an iPad - or if you do, you've never taken it out of the box.

1080p videos also play fine on iPad. I've downloaded several 1080p movie trailers, try it!

I'm very well versed regarding both platforms (which should be apparent given that I posted pictures of the the screens of both my iPad and Galaxy Tab earlier in this very thread), and have been since the day that both were introduce to the consumer market.

Actually the iPad is selling tons to people who have never owned an apple product.

Who says the 600k numbers are solid? People here are questioning those numbers - far from "solid"

You should care how many are sold - because considering android fragmentation, you might not get any apps to run on that in 6 months.

Apples support is fantastic - let's see samsung issue a firmware/os update in 9 months - for free - which adds extra functionality. How many android devices are out there stuck with old outdated versions of android that can't run a lot of apps. adequately??

Obviously, from the ignorant statements you make about iOS and the iPad, it's crystal clear that you are not well-versed in both platforms.

You obviously can't read - I did start the debate - for 90% of the users out there iOS multitasking paradigm works perfectly.

To answer your statements:

1. Yes it is.
2. Yes it does.
3. No need to - it's not multitasking - no wasted resources - lol!
