Ironically Android Devices

I find it ironic for Android tablets (just like this Acer Iconia A500 tablet, photo above) and Android phones to pose like an iPad or iPhone competitor, and yet offer their products at usually higher prices than the leader.

If you are gonna take on the competition, and you can’t offer a lot more — if not better — features, then at least come out with a competitive price. Think about 50% to 60% of that of the leader.

The Road to the iPad 2

It’s been days since the Apple Media Event in San Francisco. What we’ve learned from the event:

  • The expected release of the iPad 2;
  • The expected release of iOS 4.3;
  • Some updated apps especially made for the iPad 2, such as Garage Band, Photo Booth, and iMovie;

Personally, I’m not that impressed with the specs of the new iPad. From what Pinoy Tech Blog has pointed out as key differences from the original iPad, I don’t think I’ll easily buy to that processor upgrade, or the addition of front and rear cameras, or the reduction in thickness (or thinness, if you may) and weight, especially if it only officially reaches the Philippine shores in another eight months.
