Thread: iPad May Face Challenge from HTC 'Scribe'

  1. #21
    I have to say there's an untapped market in 7in tabs like the Galaxy. I wanted an ipad at first but wanted something more portable. The Galaxy was out of reach for me when I didn't want to sign up for service so I got a 7 in tab from Coby at kmart to experiment on and I'm really digging android. The SD slot and ability to plug in a keyboard to the USB makes this a great productivity tool. Don't discount android, it's a great OS even in it's infancy.

    I don't doubt the product (hardware). It's just that android is so fractured, there is too little standardization for app builders to meet the needs of the android community.

    iOS has that above android.. Even after jailbroken, iOS is still nominal in the app design community. Not a lot of "tweaking" and modifying just to get apps to work.

    I am all for the android tablets. I like to see competition because it works out for all consumers. But Android is not ready for tablet yet till 3.0. So I will try one out when 3.0 is dropped on one because they said that is when they will support tablets fully.

    I don't see HTC making an iPad killer. I like how all these companies are making hundreds of different phones & tablets in an attempt to remove apple from the number 1 spot. They simply are saturating the market with a bunch of similar devices that come close but not close enough. I think RIM has something with the playbook. Hopefully their OS is up to par b/c some good ol' American competition is needed.

    And I don't really think I heard RIM say anything about aiming at iPad. Which is good to come out the gate showing your own and not trying to piggyback off someone else's name. I am very interested in QNX interface. Heard they are working on the battery performance right now.


    Correct me if I am wrong please on if RIM said iPad killer.

    The more competition the better off all of us consumers will be. FFS we wouldn't even have copy-and-paste were it not for the competition forcing Apple's hand.
    They can have my jailbreak when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    Cmon guys, you really expect majority to appreciate an android device on an APPLE forum. Its understandable though, Im sure most of you havent even had hands on time with the galaxy tab or some of the newer android phones. Once you go android there's no going back. TRUST ME. I have had the iphone2g,3g,2x 3gs' and and iphone 4 since day 1, but that control you get with android is just not on a since other device. Its not for everyone though, im sure, but a power user like me cant stand the basic feel of the iphone anymore. Apple really needs to push the boundaries with widgets, better notifications and their own magic touches. I still love my ipad though, but im sure once the motorola or htc device come along ill probably try them out. Unless the ipad 2 is really THAT much better..Anyways, Happy New Year guys.

    SORRY FOR THE LONG(ish) POST
    i am disgusted by motorola; how could the call the ipad a giant iphone? it cant even make calls, it should be called a giant ipod touch...geez.

    to be honest, being an owner of both iOS and android devices (HTC Desire Z), i like apple's approach on simplicity, but i would much rather have more freedom with my phone, which is i why i use my HTC as a phone and iphone 3gs as a gaming device.

    for all you retards who thinks that companies should stop making tablets,
    why would you say that? havent gone to school? if more companies enter the market, that would force apple and other major tablet makers to improve on their current device.

    so to all you apple fanboys, **** off. be glad that more companies are forcing your precious apple inc. to make better products.

    Do you think you're getting anywhere by calling ppl "retards" and telling them to "**** off"? If you read the posts you'd see that a lot of us understand that competition is a good thing. You can still state your opinion without calling anyone names...

    You lost any credibility that you MIGHT have had when you said "itampon". Try not to be stupid.

    While I agree with you, he only called people who are against other people making tablets retards. They may not be "retards" but they sure are closed minded to actually think that something other than only Apple on the market is a bad thing.

    The only two features I can think about the iPhone having that were "different" around its debut were the touch screen (we did have stylus based systems years before iPhone by the way) and the way the icon/app layout worked. The big thing, IMO, was the sheer quality web surfing experience which, ironically, none of the competitors seem to be working to steal or copy at all. Everything else about iOS was Apple "ripping off" the mod/dev community as well as absorbing features from other phones. This includes cut/paste, appstore, and the list goes on.
