    Actually, Gb stands for gigabits, not gigabytes. The iPad has 2 gigabits of RAM (256 megabytes)

    So you people are impressed because a thing that's 5x bigger than an iPhone is 2x faster than cellphones?

    Yeah but this comparison shows having a device with an equivalent processor (1 Ghz on both the iPad and Nexus) that you are getting a TON more performance from the iPad even having to video render a MASSIVE screen because of the advanced chip architecture and integration. An intuitive hypothesis would be that the cell phone with a 1 Ghz processor would be a TON faster than an iPad with the same clock speed because it's only having to render a fraction of the pixels and isn't running large apps (in comparison) while in fact the outcome is counterintuitive.

    Thank you for this, because I'm guessing a lot of people here don't understand the importance of this comparison.

    On a side note: The Kenyan comment was awesome... made me want to bring this up...

    Bigger should be slower in some cases because it has to deal with a lot more. Nexus One and the iPad both have a 1GHz processor (I'm pretty sure this is correct, then again, I just woke up), yet the iPad wins. The iPad has more hardware and software to maintain and render.

    It's like putting a V6 engine in a sports car and an SUV. The sports car is gonna be faster with the engine because of its size and weight. This iPad vs. Nexus One comparison shows that in THIS case, the SUV is just as fast as the sports car.

    Hope that comparison helped... then again... I just woke up... lol

    Why is this thing being compared to a nexus one? Let's compare it to my macbook pro while we are at it if we are playing this game...

    Most people don't... I gave a perfect explanation of the relevance and then someone else gave a great car analogy and still people don't get the significance.
