I found this interesting too. The last sentence of the first paragraph I quoted has the money quote:

One size doesn’t fit all: How the PlayBook and TouchPad outperform the iPad

Quote:
why would anyone buy the number two product if you could get the number one product? The issue for both vendors is that their products are being pounded for not being an iPad. But if we all did that with cars or any other device, we’d all be using the same product and every other builder would be insignificant.

At the core of this is that we tend to take products, particularly Apple’s consumer products, and make them the standard we compare others too. I think that is a mistake, because both the TouchPad and the PlayBook could appeal to buyers who want different things than the iPad provides.
