funny that the COO states that the android table is "a scaled-up smartphone". but doesn't he realize that the iPad is a scaled-up iPod touch??

Cook needs to make more Apple pies

If flash is really that important your Better off just buying a net book or Mac air, you'll have a full computer that does take up that much more space than a tablet and you'll have the keyboard
Which the virtual keyboard is one of the best ideas, I love typing on the iPad and iPhone, it has the ability to have endless amounts of button layouts and keys and it saves space and worry about keys breaks or falling out etc.

Regardless, if Cook wants to acknowledge the competition is quickly gaining on Apple or not.... Truth is, we as customers will benefit from other companies trying to /one up/ each other. So I'm down for every company/person in the world to try to out-do the iPad..... It will make a better product in the long run.

Tim Cook needs to be careful. He's treading on thin ice with company policy. Apple employees are not permitted to say anything that could be construed as negative about the competition. Typical reprimand includes termination.
Jobs is probably pissed.

Cook should play it a bit cooler.
Far better to have damned with faint praise than go straight for the jugular.
Jobs maintained Apple's air of unassailability by remaining above the fight, which said "I'll let the product do the talking".
Put the gloves back on, Cook.

Now on topic...
Besides the obvious irony "You are the 2nd. on command, choose words wisely", Mr. Cook (El Señor Cocinero) expressed something true: (Like it or not) Apple is far ahead in almost all the moves it took/takes.
I prefer and choose buy that toys/tools knowing that in a life span of a year, comes a new one. And the choices are clear: A bunch of towers to custom build (Mac Pro), a bunch of laptops, some (Legendary invention) ipods, 2 cellphones (Another legendary one), and so on. Why? Cos they are so good and improved every year that is not necessary have (Cof, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, you name it) zillions of models, making a pile of unecological dump to fill 512 Museums of Tech.
Note: No, i'm not a freaken kid or a Nu Apple Fan boy in the block, just a 37 y.o. Happy Graphic & Motion Designer who chooses Mac since 1994. And by the way, love the iPad, but got no one. Just dont need it still.

Apple is one step ahead? Maybe when it comes to phones and mp3 devices, but they have a LONG way to go with personal computers.
"Apple > PC" is nothing more than an opinion that NO fiscal coverage reflects.
His whole rant is kind of misleading to be honest. It's like saying "I think this Apple is a better tasting Apple than that stupid Orange over there."

Agree with you in terms of the Mac, even when is my weapon of choice, somethings should be better/more focused. I just stick to the concept of Mr. Cook revealing the obvious: Less variety of products than others but more refined, in form and function. And the fact of be ahead on the iPad, bringing a great device and letting the software evolution (Crippled sometimes by Apple and its annoying policies) do the rest.
