    Angry Birds run very well on iOS. But sloppy OS makes blind OS zealot think the code is sloppy, rather than the OS itself.

    remember, the 3G ipad costs $629 for just a 16GB model. without expandable memory it's hard to recommend spending less than $729 on a 3G ipad.



    But will contract pricing actually make a tablet more attractive?



    That works for phones because everyone wants and needs a phone. But if you're looking at a subsidized Android tablet you're looking at a fixed monthly cost in addition to your phone's data plan and you're likely to think twice.



    I think full price with month to month data availability is the better way to go, ala the iPad and AT&T.

    Apple`s pricing for a comparable iPAD is $30 more expensive AND not as powerful/capable as the Xoom.(According to posted specs.)

It doesn't help matters that it will actually be competing with an upgraded iPad.



    Don`t you think it`s kind of disingenuous to compare the cheapest iPad with the Xoom?

    The specs of each machine would lead me to compare the Xoom to the 64gb 3G iPad which is $30.00 more expensive AND not as capable as the Xoom.

    Doesn`t matter who is buying the highest end iPad.

    The fact remains when compared according to capability the Xoom is a better deal and a better tablet (According to posted specs)



    In the end only tech geeks really give a damn.

    The masses will continue to drop their $500.00 on the cheapest least capable iPad.

    You say it’s disingenuous to compare the 16GB iPad WiFi to the 32GB Xoom with 3G*— even though he’s not comparing it to the Xoom but making a completely different and valid point — yet you then compare to the 64GB iPad WiFi+3G to claim the device introduced over a year ago is less capable and more expensive.

    Nope





    Seeing as the demos was a series of videos, I highly doubt it, at least not that would have given the journo's anything meaningful.



    Perhaps, Moto plans to overcome their disadvantages and high price through merchandising:

    Apple's pricing for a comparable iPad is $70 cheaper($729). However, I do agree with your assessment that the Xoom is the paper champ, unfortunately, real-world performance is what determines value - ouchy!!

    Not totally disagreeing but that is mostly PC users I think. Even my old friend who is 88 proudly tells me his iMac is now on 10.6.6, it is so simple for him to keep up to date with Apple software update.

    Ha, the Android device NEEDS twice the RAM, 200MHz faster CPU than the iOS game. Sounds like a sloppy OS to me, and from my own experience of OWNING an HTC Desire running Android 2.1, I can say Android is indeed shite!

    Maybe, but in the UK you can get a 32GB 3G+WiFi iPad for £199 subsidised with a 2-year contract. So nothing can make an Android Tablet look THAT attractive.

    Typical fanboy. Rant and rave, and when you're proven wrong, change the subject, rant and rave some more, and call other technologies names. I honestly wonder why I even bother posting here anymore, since the probability of intelligent conversation is nearly zero.

    When was I proven wrong? The response I was replying to had nothing to do with me.

    But my minimum requirements specs were straight from the developers. I didn't pull them out of my ass.

    But hey if you want to rant at me go ahead.

    Yep Derek,



    That's the cost of being all emotional. You fire straight from the hip without thinking thugs through. :-P



    Feel free to come back for another slice of humble pie anytime.

    This is not AT&T. You need a regular contract.



    Some people don't realize when it is better to shut their mouth and hope nobody notices.
