quote: Uhhh you should try a Kindle Fire before you make assumptions. I can do more than use the web, a lot more. And it's very enjoyable. The Nook isn't even close.
quote: If the primary use is reading then I recommend people pass on the Fire and the iPad, and that they just get a Kindle e-reader instead. e-Paper > LCD for reading, period.
quote: What I am saying is that once more nice alternatives like the Kindle fire get out there and people compare them side by side and see how well they work, more people will buy the $200 option.
quote: I just dont see how Samsung and Apple and several others can continue to sell $500 to $700 tablets when $200 alternatives that are almost as good saturate the market. The lower end ones arent quite as good, but 95% of buyers only need internet, email and a few apps, and for that, the cheaper ones are just as good.
quote: I know Palm/HP tablet deserved the slow death it got. I know this because I experienced RIM tablet and you don't.
quote: Playbook is so bad
quote: what people want in a smartphone
quote: but the thing is they all are worth zero compared to my own personal experience. Got it?
quote: UNANIMOUSLY bad reviews from tech sites
quote: 1 and 1/2 years after releasing it on a tablet, at least 2 years after starting QNX development and still no phones
quote: Your hopelessly deluded
quote: said it's shit
quote: This is a positive refresh that current owners will want to apply as soon as is readily possible, but it won't bring many new users to the fold . The Messages app fills a void and the Android app support is a nice plus, but the former is simply something that should have been there at the beginning and the latter offers far too limited selection now to be a proper selling point. Both feel like too little and both have arrived far too late. Sadly, the best new feature here is not on the tablet at all -- it's the BlackBerry Remote app for smartphones .
quote: The PlayBook was clearly designed at the outset to only be used with a crutch, and that crutch is a smartphone
quote: Would you expect me to start whining and trolling about RIM like you or Mick do?
quote: best web browser
quote: I don't know if you've heard of this product but microsoft has something called Windows that quite a lot of people use
quote: how can it be so much clearly "better"
quote: Fix this problem, dude, and you will start looking much more serious and credible than you are now.
quote: The reason why you don't agree with this is because you are a clueless troll yourself
quote: I would win :P
quote: grown ups are talking
quote: I also wouldn't be surprised to see Apple drop the iPad 2 to $250 a year from now when the iPad 4 debuts. You can already score a certified refurb iPad 2 from Apple for $350
quote: I would be very surprised. Apple has already ceased production of the iPad 2.
quote: That's why Apple is on their way to $700bn by next year and Amazon's profit margins will continue to sink.
quote: Now factor that those iOS devices are more likely to opt for the 3G connected versions, or to be used for browsing the web vs just being used as a dumb phone and the numbers start to make perfect sense.
