The Netbook of Honeycomb tablets

by apple12345    Apr 28, 2011, 1:45 AM

I have used apple products I do not think their design philosophy is particularly effective or attractive. [url=]netbook[/url] Having used the ipad I was immediately struck with two words Fisher Price...the limited nature of the OS and the @ss backwards way apple makes you work (I'm sorry but having to go to the top right of your computer screen to access the controls for a program rather than the program window...or having to drill down through several levels of menus to change settings on your mobile device and thereby losing whatever work you've done with an app (not to mention no widgets or ENFORCING that stupid grid pattern for your homescreens) is BAD design.
Having worked with a Xoom and really looking forward to buying this tablet [url= Epad-Android-22-1GHz-4GB-WIFI-Tablet-zt-180-N ew-laptop-72.html]10.2" Epad Android 2.2 1GHz 4GB WIFI Tablet zt 180 New[/url]I am struck by the ability to customize the layout look and functionality of and Android tablet (the ability to do this with an Android phone puts it way ahead of the best that apple can do)
I think what ever software issues there are with Android tablets (I have noticed force closes on the Xoom with software that was not optimized for tablets) will get solved (having upgraded the Samsung Galaxy S from eclair to froyo and seen all my software issues disappear I know this to be true). So do not let the reviewers'[url= ducts/Android-23-8-inch-Google-1080P-HDMI-Sup port-Flash-101-Gravity-Sensor-Tablet-PC-lapto p-387.html]Android 2.3 8 inch Google 1080P HDMI Support Flash 10.1 Gravity Sensor Tablet PC [/url] bias towards apple disuade you from jumping into the world of Android. In fact I would pretty much ignore anything from Eric unless you are an apple devotee looking for reinforcement as to how "special" and "magical" the next apple product (which is in fact no different than the last) is.

I I think Eric is just too in love with apple to be an effective tablet reviewer.[url= ucts/101-Multitouch-Capacitive-Tablet-PC-with -Windows-7-N450-laptop-119.html]10.1" Multitouch Capacitive Tablet PC with Windows 7 N450[/url]No offense to the gentleman in question but having tried the ipad 1 and 2 and the motorola zoom and read his other reviews I do not think he is qualified to be reviewing anything but apple products because by default he will define what apple does as right and if anyone does anything different and it's defined as wrong...and subsequently if they do what apple does they're copying.
