    I have a Motorola Xoom tablet running Android. I love it I also have an Ipad2. I play all my games on my Xoom. And do all my other paperwork ect on my Ipad2. I think Android is better for customization on the UI. Ipad is just Ipad. No real ability to do much in making the Ipad "yours". So Googles new pad may actually do well given that most smartphones are running Android anyways. What would put them over the top is if they integrate their tablet to your Android phone. I.E. Someone calls your phone and your useing your Google pad and dont want to answer you can send a command from your tablet to send the caller to your voicemail. Stuff like that would send ppl running for it lol.
  6. Good idea! @Tygerstrike. Let's call it gPad! lol
