I think you Android fanboys and fangirls are so wrapped up in your hatred of Apple and Microsoft that you can't see the forest for the trees. You folks keep harping on how evil Apple and Microsoft are and how open Android is. That is total BS. Android is not open source, it is the property of Google which is just as big and evil as any other other huge technology company, but not as talented as they are babies compared to the more than quarter of a century experience of Apple and Microsoft. I suspect that those who woo Google will one day open their eyes and realize the ugly monster they are lying beside, and then they will try to gnaw off their own arm to escape the horror.
Wrong guy Jack
I'm not Apple fan boy or Android Fan boy. I use Microsoft at work because have no alternative and I'm SQL dba , it's a Microsoft product. I only use Linux at home. And yes, Android is open source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_(operating_system)
My comment about comparing stock devices was about NC. You mentioned several times you can get X and Y feature if rooted, that's not an out of the box device or stock. In order to be fair we should compare stock NC (not rooted) vs iPad. Doing that we can see that iPad does a better job on browsing and reading ebooks.
Agree in that iPad is not so portable but that's a trade off when we get a bigger screen on a device, becomes larger and heavier.
