I hate the software, there's not much to the deisgn, and the app store is no better than google play IMO. People are willing to pay for the next new hot thing, supply and demand, it doesn't make it a fair price.

Besides, Android devices and IOS devices are pretty close in sales last I knew, so how much better is the product really?

It all depends on your needs. Personally I thought it was the best for me. Now will get the new phone? No, mine is just fine. I don't need the latest & greatest, just function able for me. I didn't buy the most expensive I Pad.

Me? I am an Apple hater. Picked up my Acer tablet that has a USB port and an expandable memory slot for $200 less than mt wife's Ipad. Has front and rear facing camera too. Oh yeah, I do not not to talk to some geek kid at the Apple Store to figure out how to search the internet on it. Adobe Flash runs on my pad, how about yours?

I have an Acer A501 tablet with 3G. It's not perfect, but suits my needs for way less money than an I pad. If I could afford an I pad and Iphone, I would be happy with them, but since I can't, I have an android phone and android tablet . I would probably confuse myself switching back and forth between an android tablet and an apple phone and vice versa. I'm not an Apple hater, just a thriftier android user.

Ha, if Adobe Flash working is your biggest selling point, I'd recommend to find yourself some more interesting sites that aren't running outdated technology. Furthermore, if one HAD to have Flash functioning on their iPad, there' are Apps that make that work such as iSwifter and Skyfire. Easy "fix". What's the warranty on that Acer? Where do you go when you have an issue with it? The Acer store ? Or is that just a quick call to India?

Here ya go, educate yourself on your "power point" of Adobe Flash:

Haha.. "My pad has Flash"!

You could make a case for FireHD maybe. Buy Apple! Peer pressure!

Heck, my pad did not need an easy fix. Give the folks at Apple all your money. Tie yourself to the way they want you to search the net and the way you will listen to music.

Have not had a problem with my pad. If I do I will throw it away and get another and still be ahead of the Apple group. You have a special day!
