It all just depends on what's important to the individual user.
The ONLY claims an iPad user can make about being better are aesthetics, battery life(although just barely better than Xoom) and number of apps. I guess you could claim to like iOS better than Android... but I have yet to meet anyone who has ACTUALLY used both on a tablet and not thought Honeycomb was superior.
The apps will catch up, so will battery life.. in the end it will be aesthetics and marketing that keep the iPad afloat. The other factors are not matters of opinion.. they are quantifiable entities.
You can claim to like a 3MP more than a 5MP.. but it's kinda silly. Same with a 1024x768 screen vs a 1280x754... 256 Megs of Ram vs 1024...
