iPad is a giant iPhone?


GoogleChic, you are going to love this Motorola tablet evolution ad 😀 It is the same Motorola tablet which Andy Rubin had showed off during the Honey Comb preview. Motorola terms the iPad as “It’s like a giant iPhone, but… it’s like a giant iPhone”. Motorola can’t even get its jabs right. iPad is more like a giant iPod Touch than a giant iPhone 😉

Motorola labels the Samsung Galaxy Tab as “Android OS, but Android OS…for a phone”. Ouch, now you can’t even trust a fellow Android user to watch your back?

Isn’t Honeycomb just an optimized version of Android phone OS 🙂 Pretty much like iOS for iPad?

Not only does Motorola come late into the market (to be released at CES Jan 2011), but it  made the stupid mistake of comparing its tablet to the first gen iPad. Motorola is yet to realize that it will actually be competing with iPad  2 (rumored to be released early next year).


Based on Andy Rubin’s preview of the Motorola tablet Honeycomb looked awesome! I would say it’s a overhaul of the Android OS and not an optimized version of it 🙂

I wonder how pissed Samsung is about this ad. Motorola took a direct jab at Samsung with their “Android OS, but Android OS for a phone”. Ouch, first off Samsung Tab is a 7 inch tablet which is why it’s able to utilizes Android 2.2 (Froyo) and it works well. The Motorola tab is a 10 inch tablet so it definitely needs Honeycomb which will handle the larger resolution.

As for the iPhone comment, it looks like Motorola is implying that their tablet will have more features as compared to the Droid X for example. Come on Motorola, stop teasing us and release the specs already!

iPad – Officially the fastest selling Tech Gadget ever!


If you have been hearing way too much about the iPad since it was launched, there is a reason for that! With an estimated 8.5 million units sold (and 3 million in its first 80 days), iPad is the top selling tech gadget in history as noted by Information Week.GoogleChic, let’s see Google Chrome Tab, Galaxy Tab or any of droid tablets beat this one and I will eat my words! Bring on the army of iPad killers 🙂

iPad is not only known for replacing netbooks but also eating into PC sales. Research group NPD released a survey that found 13% of the iPad buyers would have purchased a PC if not for the iPad. With TargetWalmart and Sam’s Club selling (or ready to sell) iPads now, we can expect the holiday season sales to shoot up sky high.

GoogleChic, Android is all talk and no cider. Sorry to burst your Android bubble, iPad is still the king of tablets! Now don’t go on saying that we have to wait and watch for Chrome Tab, when its released in November. I am just tired of waiting for Android to prove itself worthy. Aren’t you? 😉


It’s easy to be the top selling tech gadget when there’s really no real competitor in the market. iPad is really the first slate tablet to hit the market by storm, but it’ll be interesting once the Blackberry Playbook, Samsun Tab (Anroid), Chrome OS and Windows 7  tablets hits the market.

Of course the tablet market will take some of the market share from the PC and netbooks, that’s just basic economics.  It’s not like we suddenly got a huge increase in population. Consumers that simply need a device to surf the web would  naturally lean to a tablet device. Manufactures are seeing the need in the market hence the big push to release them just in time for the holiday season.

Wait and see AppleGirl, by the end of this year there’ll be a whole slew of tablets in the market to give the iPad some competition.  Remember, good things come to those who wait 😉
