    Good post. I went with the iPad 3 and have no regrets. Of course, I'm an Apple guy and like all of my tech to sync easily.

    Love my iPad and wouldn't trade it for any other tablet. Got it on opening day by chance (walked in to Best buy to browse and they had a few extra to sell) and haven't looked back. My wife said it best when she told me the other day that if the iPad breaks I better go out and buy another one that day. We both use it daily.

    As soon as the IPad's competitors get close to be comparable, Apple releases a new more improved version.

    Excellent strategy, I'd say.

    That certainly hasn't been the case with the iphone.

    10 inch--go with the IPAd.

    Don't need 10 inch screen--go with nexus, etc.

    If Kindle finally gets color e-ink, there will be plenty of room in the market for it. I love Apple products, but I can't begin to say how much I prefer reading via e-ink than LCD.

    Actually, the Zune was a very slick media player that just came along way too late to have any real traction.

    Don't believe what you read, sometimes you have to actually put your hands on these things and use them before making an evaluation.

    It's unlikely the new Kindle will have color e-ink. But yes, using e-ink and a backlit display is apples and oranges. No iPad will ever compete with an e-ink reading device.

    Yeah, I know. Next will probably have a built in light. But the technology is there now. And I'm waiting...

    Apple should be releasing a new iPhone(4.5/5.5" screen) and a new iPad(12-13" screen) this year.
    Possibly a new Apple TV & tv set as well

    If you use apple already. Might as well stick with your iproducts. Otherwise, get an android, it'll be faster/cheaper/better.

    samsung is looking pretty tempting…at least their commercials make it sound like a much better choice.
