Just those two? What about ones like the Galaxy Tab 10.1 or perhaps the Toshiba Thrive? I'm not interested in the gaming department but I am attracted in the overall application ecosystem of the iPad two, so things like
Widgets etc... still fall under visual customization and or accessibility correct? Also what did you use up to quickly full up 16gb? I'm more of a music books/comics person so I doubt I will fill up that 16gb too fast.
When we are talking about iPads yes, the Thrive and galaxy tab have outdated processors. OMAP is terrible.
The thrive is a good tablet but these two are overpriced when you can just go for the ipad 3 for a little more. too me at least, it isnt worth it.
Samsung is notorious for dropping support to their devices quickly and ignoring critical bugs.
its not just hardware its the manufacturer as well.
I filled it up with movies! a little music when being used in the kitchen or table and i have apps upon apps, and especially now in an iPad 3 the apps are HD they will take up 16 gb rather quickly. Add in application cache, whatever you download, again games you have for the go. what if you want to travel? guess what delete a lot to fill it up with a little. The Transformer wins instantly in the storage/value department. I wish i had a prime to review i've only owned the original and played with the prime a little.
how much music do you have? Over the years i have over 18.5 gb in my itunes alone worth of podcasts,comics, apps, music, audiobooks.
Think about this, its not truly 16 gb, some of that goes to the system. its fills up QUICK. and every memory upgrade will cost you 100 bucks. like Mark mentioned the WiDrive saves me alot. I throw all my movies in thier without it I wouldve returned the iPad. this is just me
