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.

Oh Apple and their endless upgrades. Maybe I'll buy one this time.

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.
