Careful when you point fingers
Who's pointing fingers? I just don't think a front camera and faster processor is a "surprise the world" product announcement - considering the impact Honeycomb had with it's 3D interface features, live-sync scrollable widgets, and fully cloud-based sync.
Is that a biased analysis? It really wasn't meant to be, as I own both Android and iOS devices. :dunno:
Apple products haven't click for me (I tried an iPhone3 for several months but went back to my ancient BB because messaging is so much easier on it), but some people seem to love them. Does that make them a fanboi?
The Tablet market is heating up and I'm interested to see what floats to the top, be it Apple or otherwise. But the Xoom with Honeycomb doesn't appear to be a slam-dunk just yet. The total package of power, usability, ease of use, weight and form etc will be what wins me over, and I think that will be a different equation for everyone. I haven't seen a convincing enough package yet in any of the products.
I think my expectation of a tablet is going to remain very high because I already maintain a smartphone, laptop, desktop, and Camera gear. I'd be sold if it could allow me to leave my phone and laptop at home. Maybe even if it could reasonably replace the laptop, or provide a lot of storage for images.
