I was talking about who you were replying to, colorchangintiger. I was telling you he had comprehension problems.

The new Transformer comes out on April 22nd and won't be as good, it will be a little cheaper than the current Prime but with a lesser quality screen and less battery life I think. It is definitely not an upgrade if thats what you're waiting for.

From what I'm reading you cannot update the Samsung galaxy 10.1. This true? Why the hell would they do this?

They have been saying this would be the case in 6 months for the past two years.

ETA: and when you have apps selling for $1 billion dollars that were iOS exclusives up until a week before they sold, I doubt many people are deciding to develop Android first.

HBOGO does not work on ICS

One of many apps that is currently unable to run on ICS

Not to mention:

The iPad Wins because Android Tablet Apps Suck: An Illustrated Guide

quote:

Finding tablet-oriented apps for Android is a hunt, a chore, and a grind.


quote:

Superficially, the picture doesn't look so bad for Android tablets; almost all of the brands are at least represented on Google Play, and some display more apps per brand on Android than on the iPad.


quote:

The problem is that the Android apps are often formatted for phones. They'll work on tablets - barely - but they'll be ugly, with less functionality than their iPad counterparts.

Android was weak on apps from TV brands,


quote:

It wasn't hard to find apps that ran on the iPad but not on the Prime.


quote:

Way too many Android apps fall back on a design that looks like a late-20th-century WAP site: a stack of modules designed to look good on narrow screens. Unfortunately, that design is completely inappropriate for a tablet.
On the iPad, on the other hand, apps tend to use multiple panes or columns, which is a much better use of tablet real estate. This is actually a Google design recommendation for tablets. Developers just aren't doing it.

You cite a forum posting from January ( ) in which one of the last replies is:

Just go directly to hbogo.com, and launch it directly in your browser. It works.


That's one of the beauties of Android, the flash support and all.


ICS is amazing, and it on a tablet is just awesome, much better than iOS on an ipad. Not even close IMO. iOS has become so stale and the "new ipad" is a fricking joke.

No bias there. Lol.

ICSis great, developers need to nut up though and start following Googles HIG

ETA: you probably also use windows 7 which visually is almost exactly like windows 95. But you don't consider that "stale".

Sorry, should've clariefied...I mean the Transformer Infinity or 700 series, which will likely be in June sometime. Off the top of my head I believe it will be a better screen resolution (rivaling new iPad), and maybe a few other things. I've looked at the trnasformers a good bit and gotta say that's likely the direction I'm headed when I ultimately get a tablet

I have the original transformer with the docking station, in fact I am posting from it now. It is a really nice tiny package to use for everything, the power consumption is amazing. I could use this thing all day without problems, even can charge my phone while it runs wifi for me.

Its funny to me that the flash issue gets some people to choose a shitty product.

Not sure who you are referring that statement to, but flash isn't the only reason I'm going Android, but it's a huge plus for me. Sorry I'm not an apple fan boy.

I'm sorry, are you saying iOS 1.0 and iOS 5.1 are the same thing? I didn't think so.

aesthetically there is not much difference apart from higher DPI icons between 95 and 7

Either way, what are you looking at most on your device, the home screen or the apps? The apps make the device.

When you have a functioning home screen (aka widgets) you are less app reliant. But you wouldn't really know that.

It's no Sabre Pyramid. You'll want the optional memory booster.
