The mass majority of people here and elsewhere will agree that it's the software that makes the product, not so much the hardware. Up until tablets, Apple has really outdone everyone in the software area. That's what makes the iPhone so spectacular. However, Apple is losing when it comes to tablet software. iOS is in no way a satisfying experience for tablets. Honeycomb is what will cause people to pull away from the iPad. Who cares what the iPad 2 or 3 or 4 brings hardware wise? If Apple can't get a proper tablet softare operating system on their iPad, it will slowly die out. Take out all the hardware specs and just compare tablet browsers. Honeycomb is pretty much a fully functioning desktop browser...iOS is not. Or how about multitaksing. Honeycomb is true multitasking...iOS is not. A tablet should be a bridge between phone and computer (multiple desktops, widgets, etc), which it is...iOS is not (just a large ipod). Everyone here, practice what you preach. You all say how the software makes the device. Own up to it. The iPad software is generic and underpowered for a tablet. iOS is great for a PHONE, but not a tablet, which should be a bridge for the user.
