iPad 2

Maybe not a gigantic upgrade from the original but still is very impressive. The fact that it's still the same price isn't good news for LG and RIM.

I also like how almost right after they announce the device, it's available for purchase (unlike most other manufacturers).

The droid bionic has a 1ghz dual core, is that the best they can do?

Ipads are fun to play with though.

They are. I'd buy one in a heartbeat but two things hold me back: 1) no SD card slot 2) no flash.

Obviously no but look at the iPad's price compared to the rest. Besides, hardware <<< software and nothing tops iOS.

I couldn't even name one of the other "tablets" it could be the best one out there for all I know, I just don't see the point of them.

Thinner than the iphone and with the mobile hotspot in iOS 4.3 for the iphone, I don't know why anyone would get the 3G version of this and pay for the extra data plan.
