I thought the lack of each was really stupid on Apple's part the first goround. And I still can't believe they didn't add it to the iPad2. There's plenty of room inside for it.

Every time I start thinking I really want an iPad, I come and read this thread. Thanks Austinchief for keeping me from jumping too early.

The only thing that really sucks for me is the money I already have invested in apps for my ipod touch. Of course, that was apples plan all along. Get you monetarily hooked to the product.

A better tablet for less money is just around the corner. Don't fall for iPad 3 or iPad 4 when they come out either. The better tablet will be along shortly.

Personally I will wait until the MS Courier comes out to look into that space...

My comment was more about me picking on pat, than the fanboy comment.

I agree with your post here.

He's still waiting for that iPad killer.

And I stand by my previous posts... As someone who has actually used almost every type of tablet on the market... I have found the iPad to be the best form with the least function. Mostly due to its lack of FLASH support... and the various apps that are meant to supplant FLASH functionality ... simply don't.

Let me give you a PERFECT example that happened ALL THE TIME with my girlfriend and I. She had an iPhone and later an iPad that I bought her. I had a Win7 tablet and an EVO 4G. While driving I would think of some obscure song I wanted her to hear so I would search for it on Google. OVER HALF the time there would NOT be a version that would play on Youtube's mobile app. SO if I sent her a link she couldn't play it on her i-devices yet I could play the video just fine on mine because I could choose to play via FLASH and not use the mobile app.

Do you have any idea how supremely annoying it is when half of your searched results won't play?

It isn't about an iPad killer, Apple's ridiculous policies have made the iPad a half-functional novelty and nothing more. but you can certainly do LESS for LONGER with its amazing battery life!

Over the course of last year a bunch of BETTER tablets came out... they ALL SUCKED but they were still better because they actually worked. Over the course of this year a ton more will come out that are ALL better and may also not suck. The Wifi Xoom with Flash and SD CARD support should be out in a week and at $600 it is easily the best tablet on the market... I'm not a huge fan because I still think it will be overpriced but I challenge anyone to tell me why an iPad is better at that point?

It will have better hardware specs, same price, better OS and lastly FLASH!

Feel free to drink Apple's koolaid and CHANGE the way you use the web to suit their device.. personally I would rather have a device that actually tries to fit what I want and not the other way around.

Actually, you're dead wrong here. I thought that way as well until i started to look into a few roadmaps from guys like Dell, Microsoft and Intel. To TRULY replace a laptop you need one of two conditions... #1 cloud computing needs to become the overwhelming standard .. we all know that THIS is coming but a long way off.. #2 a true tablet that can run traditional windows programs...

#2 is not far off you will have EXPENSIVE Intel based Win7/8 tablets coming out in the next 6-12 months and cheaper ARM based Win8 tablets in 12-16 months (if you are a LINUX guy, you can get Ubuntu tablets in the next 6-9 months)

yes, this is always the case with technology. BUT you can draw a BASELINE, below which, you won't buy a device. For BCD it needs to have the functionality of a laptop and be cheaper. For me it needs to have more power, memory, slightly cheaper and at the least be able to support Flash. With iPad users... I am shocked that their baseline of functionality is so low... especially for the cost. even my girlfriend admitted that my phone was a more functional device but she "just wanted an iPad." She had completely bought into the marketing. Hey, if the iPad works for you, great. Just don't expect me to join you in Jonestown, I'm not a big fan of powdered drinks.

OK, AustinChief, you keep banging that drum.

But why have you been talking about the wonders coming a year or two from now instead of proclaiming victory with all the better-than-ipad tablets on the market today?

Again, because none of them are meeting MY baseline... a baseline that I can't imagine anyone wanting to dip below... but owell.

The Xoom is better than the iPad... but neither is worth buying IMO.

Now do you get my point? That is why I keep talking about what is on the horizon.

I currently have a Win7 tablet that is head and shoulders more functional BUT it is bulky and has crappy battery life. SO, I don't consider it a true tablet.... but I simply couldn't take 10 steps backward in functionality for the sake of a thinner device with a better battery.

OK, to the extent you're limiting your "better tablet" opinion to what works for you, I have no problem with it. But I think there's plenty of room for iPad users to claim that their tablet is currently better than other current alternatives including Xoom. It all just depends on what's important to the individual user.
