The only reason not to go iPad if you're looking for a tablet is price. It's the undisputed market leader.

Or you simply like the flexibility/customization that Android offers

By that thought process, nobody should be using anything but Windows on their computers.

The customization is what I like about the Android tablet. The iPad seems structure and purist, but nobody can touch the Retina displays resolution. Thanks for the comments. Keep them coming!

the marvel of the ipad 3 is not that they can jam that many pixels into a screen that size, it's that the ipad can get decent battery life even while powering all those pixels.

which is really one of my only gripes with android stuff: battery life. that said, however, rooting/rom-ing really does help. currently on my gnex I'm squeezing about 12 hours per charge with 2-3 hours screen on time. that's a full day, and during that day I'm doing all sorts of neat stuff you will never be able to do on an apple device.

The retina display is nothing special. Its just an IPS panel that apple put a cool little hipster name on so people would buy into it and claim nothing else has an IPS display

So Jailbreak if that's what you really want. It takes a whole 10 minutes and it's so easy a caveman could do it.

It's the undisputed market leader because it has no true challenger. Anyone unbiased in the tech industry accepts that as a fact.

It's also the reason so many are attacking the lower end spectrum because they can't compete with a fully powered tablet.

Yea, it's only the best screen on a mobile device ever. Complete marketing hype.

While I know what you're saying and agree on that point, the same can be said for Windows.

Yeah. I'm curious to see how the W8 tablets turn out.

Your second sentence does a good job of describing the first.

There's another consumer production model that matches that screen on a mobile device?

I don't know. You're not giving any points of comparison.

So you're just going to go down the list, since you don't actually have something that you know it's superior in. Fine then; the Lenovo T60 can be had in 2048 x 1536.

I -loved- my HP Touchpad. I was a fan of WebOS from when the Palm Pre first dropped with it, and I still believe it is the best mobile OS for multitasking. The only reason I just sold it was because of its size with a 9.7" screen. The size of the tablet made it awkward to hold for long periods of time while watching movies or reading. Got my wife a Kindle Fire for this past Christmas and I fell in love with the size. Just the right size to hold with one hand comfortably yet still big enough to be more enjoyable than using my Thunderbolt 24/7. Now Google has announced the Nexus 7 which, with its 7" format, and pure Android I could not pass up the opportunity; squeezing in a hardware upgrade (raw processing power) and still spend 1/3 of the price of an iPad.

Without talking down the iPad, I will just say I will spend money where I see it is best spent. There are many reasons I haven't bothered with an iPad.

Curious, how do you figure a "fully powered tablet" versus something like The Transformer Prime (trying to stick to 10" tablets) with its superior Tegra 3 chipset? And please don't tell me just the screen resolution makes it so powerful.

You're comparing a laptop to a tablet. I suppose it's my fault for not better defining mobile device. But I think it clearly displays you have no argument.

I didn't say they didn't try. They sure did and failed. The primes sales numbers were nothing to get excited about. Which is why companies are now trying the Kindle Fire and Google Nexus's of the world.

It's easy to win if you make up your own rules as you go.

That didn't answer the question.
