Once in a while, I also almost scream, “What the heck is wrong with people?”
Somebody slaps Android on tablet hardware and markets it as “the answer to the iPad”. Ludicrous. How is that particular tablet different from the legion of Android tablets out there, all of whom put together have not made a dent on the iPad’s dominance?
What makes Android successful is partly that it is different from iOS – and that’s a good thing.
Still, while Android is outselling iOS on the smartphone playing field, iOS rules in the tablet playing field. Perhaps Android just doesn’t make for a great tablet experience in its current shape. Perhaps it is something else.
But for crying out loud, all these iPad wannabes need to go get a life. If I want an iPad, I will go buy one, thank you.
Or at least, if you are going to claim to be the answer to the iPad, do really present us a unique user experience that is different from what is currently on the legion of also-ran iPad wannabes.
By the way, good morning, fellow mobilists!
