What are those Android tablets being used for? Doorstops? Paperweights?

Yes, yes it is indeed.
Macrumors highlights a piece by Elliot Temple of Curi.us, via Daring Fireball, about the comparison made between the iPad and the ASUS VivoTab Smart (great name by the way) in their latest desperation ad:
The iPad has a screen area of 45.16 square inches, which I double checked with a calculator. The ASUS VivoTab Smart has a screen area of 43.56 square inches. That’s right, the ASUS screen is smaller than the iPad’s.
The iPad screen is 7.76 by 5.82 inches. The ASUS screen is 8.8 by 4.95 inches. ASUS is larger in one direction but smaller in the other direction, and has 3.55% less area than the iPad, not 36% more as Microsoft depicts.
Microsoft can’t even lie the right way.
Don’t fall asleep with an electronic device on top of your chest, period. Forget about magnets, what about battery malfunction? It’s just plain dangerous.
- Shipping is not the same as selling. Apple reports sold items. That means they reached someone’s hand. Shipping just means that Best Buy, Radio Shack, Costco, Wal Mart, etc, bought items for their store inventory. Oranges and Apples.
- Why is it then, that web usage is completely dominated by Apple time after time, report after report? Do the people who buy these tablets not realize they can surf the web?
- Apple keeps selling more units than any one of these other manufacturers. What these numbers really mean, is that the entire market is growing and even though Apple sells more and more each quarter, it will obviously get less percentage. It’s not that Apple is falling behind, it’s that the market is growing overall. Almost 50 million units this quarter, against 20 million the year ago quarter is amazing growth, while the PC markets keeps slowing down. Steve Jobs was right, this is a Post-PC era.
Apple’s iPad is the best tablet on the market in terms of consumer satisfaction, according to J.D. Power and Associates’ new 2013 U.S. Tablet Satisfaction Study. The survey looked at the opinions of 1,857 tablet owners who’ve had their devices for less than a year, and Apple’s bestselling tablets came out on top for the second time in a row. Apple devices hold the top spots in J.D. Power rankings for both tablets and smartphones.
Yeah, but you know, nobody likes them and Apple is Doomed, and Samesung is killing it.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) didn’t necessarily intend to revolutionize health care, but that’s exactly what happened. Health care has changed dramatically since Steve Jobs first stood in front of an audience to introduce first the iPhone then later the iPad. Much of that change can be directly attributed to Apple Inc.
My doctor uses both an iPhone and an iPad. My guess is to play Angry Birds.
