    i've had my ipad since launch and have been using iphone for a few years now... not once have felt that i missing out on anything because of not having flash support. not everyone *needs* flash as badly as you and many others may think - i have often wondering why people like this buy apple products if they're not happy with what they do/dont support

    RAM does matter...who told u it doesnt. if iOS4 had real multitasking then you know that RAM matters. it doesnt take much to put an app on PAUSE. so i can see why iOS4 doesnt need that much RAM. but for those OSes that actually have real multitasking, RAM matters and they all have more. dont try to cover it up.

    If its about the OS, why do you even need an iPad when it looks EXACTLY like the iPhone 4?!?!? If its about software,why do you need the latest iPhone or iPad when the previous generations will get the same OS and same features.
    Same square icons, same push notifications, well just an upscaled iPhone OS.

    Also Honeycomb is actually better and nicer than iOS, just that Xoom sucks.

    You know what??... i am sick and tired of coming in to this forum and seeing this crap. If you want your droid crap go buy it. There is a reason why apple's products sell the way they do. It's very simple to figure out who is best. There are tons and tons of side by side field test comparisons of these devices....All of them that are available!!!! GOOGLE it! Then base your decisions on what you need and what you think is best. I've clearly made my decision..... So I guess I'm a "fanboy"... I guess that why I'm on this site....hmmm wow! go figure

    People often worry about numbers and size. side by side comparison will be needed with regards to speed and resolution for visual appeal.
    it looks better because ur brain is telling u that "its apple...so its better". a person with normal eyes would see that the higher resolution would be better.

    cuz they often report about OSX and i get a good laugh at people defending iOS4 products without trying them and saying something is better 'just cuz it is'....truly brings me joy and laughs.

    So your telling me you never had to close any apps from the multitasking task bar to free up memory? If so, your the biggest liar on the planet. Your obviously not conscious about how much memory the apps are actually using. I don't think the iPhone 4 is bad otherwise I wouldn't own one myself. I am not alone, there are others complaining as well. People like you (fanboys) are sad human beings who get upset when people say the slightest bad thing about the iPhone and bring up competitors to explain who is superior.

    uhhhhhhh no, its all about everything together working together and the final product it produces...........

    you can have an os thats beautiful, but without hardware that can run it you're s*** out of luck. you can have awesome hardware, but without a good os all you have is a bunch of synthetic and natural materials.......

    Im not a big fan of the task switcher myself and there are many people who do not kill the apps in the task switcher. Apple should include a way to kill all and maybe even warn of a low memory condition. There is a cure for this in Cydia. = remove background and a seperate SBsettings toggle.. and you can make exceptions.. works beautiful

    Sorry but no, Android can be easily scaled up but whats the point?

    It'd be just like Android Froyo but with more space between icons and widgets.

    The iPad OS looks exactly like iPhone OS, same push notifications, same unlock slider, same UI, only apps were converted for a bigger screen.

    Google redesigned everything for Honeycomb and it looks nice and they did a good job. At least you can tell its not based of Android Froyo.

    Many people who are brand new to purchasing an apple product still believe that processor speed and ram are somehow comparable to other products or even relevant to the purchase. Apple (recent as of post-2000 era) does not release a product that isn't guaranteed to work smoothly. CPU and RAM are irrelevant. Compare actual usage. The os's of apple are so much better than the competition that apple has been selling hardware to accompany it's software for longer than most competitors have been in the computing industry.

    In the end, Os efficiency makes all the difference. Don't believe me? Compare your iPhone four to that motorola brick or the htc drywall.
    Who ever said OS efficiency isn't important? Even a dummy know how important it is. I'm saying its not as efficient as I would expected to be. Yes your another fanboy comparing iPhone to competition.

    LMAO at idiots still asking for flash!! 100 million + iOS devices sold and NOW flash is needed?? GTFOH!!!

    iPad2 smokes the competition and to talk about the damn cameras....REALLY?? Are the people on this board so out of touch with reality that they dont understand that how many gigapixels you have on your camera means NOTHING! RAM? WTF does it matter if the iPad is super quick (which all initial reports say it is).

    This is why Steve and CO are so far ahead of the competition, they realize this nonsense about spec wars is useless and all it does is it turns the market into a battle on sheets of paper. Its all about how well the product integrates into the users life and how well the product addresses the consumers experience with the product.
    SD Slots? Megapixels? I have said it over and over again, the best way to fail at a product is to base your design on the idiotic comments on tech blogs and message boards.
