Not sure anyone that makes a pen enabled tablet is a copy cat, they have been around for eons. Heck all my old pens for my 2003 HP TC1100 work on my Galaxy Note 10.1..

Which I'm really happy about!

It's a 1280x800 LCD. Great. Except that you can get a 1920x1080 display from Asus in the TF700 or a 2048x1536 display from Apple. A tablet is just a screen, so skimping on it is an instant deal breaker.

So what happened here, Samsung? I thought you guys were supposed to have great display technology. You guys manufacture the iPad display, so don't tell me you can't do it. Are you just skimping out on components to boost your profit margin?

It's been about 1 month since Google forever changed the Android tablet landscape with the release of the Nexus 7, and it's clear the Note 10.1 was designed and priced in the pre-N7 dark ages. This tablet is bad at any price point, but, somehow, Samsung found the courage to charge five hundred dollars for it. That's 2-and-a-half Nexus 7s, and, to be honest, the N7 feels more expensive than the Note 10.1.

The saddest thing is, Samsung can do so much better. The Series 9 laptop guys make beautiful, kick-ass products out of aluminum every day. In fact, they use some crazy aluminum alloy called "Duralumin." I want that. You guys also make the iPad display, why don't you just whip up a widescreen version? Is the mobile division entirely run by passionless, cost-cutting bean-counters? Show some pride in your work, pull the best parts of Samsung together, and make something great.

So she liked your favourite device?
And reading her iPad 3 review, it includes:
Quote:
Assuredly it's sharper with somewhat richer colors, but if you head to an Apple store and look at the iPad 2 and new iPad side-by-side, I'll wager you'd have trouble saying which is which at first and even second glance.
Seriously? I find it hard to believe that if you open anything text-based, like a book or web page, on both devices and viewed them side by side that the difference wouldn't be obvious. It certainly is for me, owning both devices.
And a review that includes the phrases "Another year, another Apple tablet and ensuing craze", "Despite Apple's extreme marketing claims", "or an Apple lover who wants to have the latest and greatest from Cupertino." doesn't exactly come across as very unbiased.
We naturally tend to agree with and respect those who hold the same opinions we do.
You can always pick specific phrases (as I have above) to make someone look biased, that doesn't mean that they are.

This is incorrect there are Android tablets with the same build quality and resolution as the iPad 3 (Transformer 700).
Transformer 700: 1920x1200
iPad 3: 2048x1536
That is roughly 36% more pixels on the iPad.

Wow grow some skin. I don't see how your taking issue with anything she said in your quotes. With the exception of the second quotes those are more complements than insults.

Agreed I'm of the opinion that I want an unbiased review where the reviewer provides facts and omits preference. If the reviewer holds the same opinion, then I tend to like their review.

I'm looking at the DPI (224 (Transf) vs 264(iPad)) which is about a 15% difference. The iPad DPI is better but at reading distance it's negligible. My daughters iPad 3 I can clearly see it's a much better screen than my Nook but the improvement is not that noticeable over my TPrime. I don't see it being that much better than a TInfinity unless you get close and compare them side by side.

Using screen res only is not so good of a measure because if the screen is larger you still might see the grain. You see this with some android phones vs iPhones. They have higher res than the iPhone but the screen size is also much larger. The result is those Android phones have a smaller DPI and not a crisp image as the iPhone. The newer phones like the Gnexus, S3, Hox have DPI that are now near 300 and now have the similar DPI.

I was deliberately overreacting to the quotes to make a point:

Clearly I didn't make it very well
