    The UI looks pretty good; but not as polished as an iPad, not even the 1.0 version.

    You really should test it with apps of both flavors- optimize & not optimized for about a week or two. Then report how well it works. After all, I five gallon bucket really gets tested when it’s carried five gallons back and forth many times.

    The beauty of iPhone & the iPad is the 99.999% reliability that they’ll work. How many devices can say that?

      Outside of eInk eBook devices, none.

    Oh, one last thing: no iTunes; iBooks; and 100,000 optimize apps plus the lack of ecosystem make it hard to choose ant tablet other than an iPad.

    You really have to hate Apple or be totally ignorant of the differences, which many people fall into both, to pick another tablet.

    iPad killer? WTF? HP must hate consumers to put out something like that. Why would a tablet take so long to boot since it’s got a pretty snappy processor, flash memory and such a small OS?
