    Oh let me guess, ipad now has native flash support...wait, never mind.

    Really, the only thing the apple devices have going for them right now is the app store and the fact that apple apps are MUCH cheaper than android apps.

    I believe there is a jailbreak tweak for that.

    I actually like it a lot. It's nice not having to deal with cash or swipe a card since my phone is always in my hand. Just load your Starbucks card with money and sync it to the app. Then when you go to Starbucks, open the app and they scan the barcode right from the phone. Plus, it is really accurate on locating the nearest Starbucks to your location. It's pretty cool.

    As you can see all it has is a better display and some very slight hardware improvements. Here is the Asus Tablet for comparison:

    Aside from the higher resolution LCD screen Apple has really nothing to offer over it's competitors, and it's been playing catch up in the tech dept. for a while. Give it a few months and I'm sure Samsung will release a screen that will destroy that Apple LCD and be a half inch bigger to boot. Why Apple refuses to put USB ports on a device that it makes total sense to have is beyond my comprehension. Oh yeah for that ASUS tablet you have a snazzy keyboard doc that gives you more usb connections and virtually turns your tablet into a netbook.

    Thanks for providing the info.
    I know the differences between the 3 iPads.
    Its funny you brought up innovation when the products that compete with apple fall short in the same department.
    I was expecting you to show me innovation. It's all just natural progression.
    At the end of the day it comes down to user preference.

    The Asus keyboard dock could be considered innovative as nobody else is doing it. But aside from that, tablets are just bigger phones. But then again no other company is claiming to be innovative except for Apple, who is now going to get the government probe for price fixing e-books.

    Keyboard docks have been around for a while now. Nothing innovative about them.

    Not the same thing as the Asus. The Asus keyboard turns the tablet into a laptop clambshell design.

    That Asus docking station is really nice, looks like a tablet and ultrabook in one device. I want something just like that running Windows 8.

    I'm not sure what my Motorola Xoom battery is rated at, but I am sitting at 3d 8h 58m on battery with 54% battery left running a mix of 70% wifi 22% 3g and 8% 4gLTE. Given, I have not been using it a whole lot today, but that is still pretty damn good for a tablet.
