Please. The issues that you bring up -- adapters to plug in camera/SD card or to an external display, "you get no ports, no expansion," multitasking previews, widgets, usb host mode, openness, no option to view Flash, read external media, or manage content -- have been discussed ad nauseum
in these boards, with numerous sensible reasons offered up by some pretty knowledgable folks for why these constraints exist. You should do a bit of research before dredging up tired, old stuff.
More important, the laziness of your thinking is evident when you make statements such as "...it is Apple's advantage to hinder expandability where it could be implemented so easily..." or imply that Apple does not listen to its users. Multitasking, cameras, AirPlay, AirPrint, HDMI connector, expanded capabilities for iWork, iMovie, GarageBand, Photo Booth, changing the toggle button back to allowing screen lock, to name just a few, are examples of where Apple has listened to its customers. (And, 'Apple's advantage to hinder....'? How exactly?)
If you don't like Apple's pace and approach in doing this (and many of us believe that Apple does it substantially better than Google does), by all means jump ship and switch. There, after all, dozens of Android tablet choices, so there's no point in whining about Apple. It is what it is.
As for Flash: all I can say is, you must be joking. Seriously.
