My husband is an IT guy who builds his own computers and such. I get that some people like to tinker. Many of those who do, though, fail to understand that there are many more consumers who don't care to tinker. To me, it doesn't matter the brand. Give me reliability and ease of use. If you can deliver such a tablet at a lower price, even better.
I wanted a tablet long before Apple announced one. I was going to wait and see what Microsoft and HP produced, but then they pulled back. With iPad's success, now everyone wants a piece of it. Great. Many companies have gotten off the pot, thanks to iPad. About freaking time.
