I don't want to start a flame war or anything here. I believe that iPad 2 is a good upgrade over 1. I wish it had higher resolution. It's pretty much the same as 1 but slimmer, lighter and add cameras. Of course, the dual core will be HUGE in apps. Just think about Garageband and iMovie NOT going to be able to run on the first gen iPad. BUT I also say that I think Honeycomb is a better tablet OS than iOS is at this point. With that said, developers haven't made tablet optimized apps for Android yet and the hardware and price isn't there either. I think it's similar to when Android first launched with the G1. Apps weren't there, hardware wasn't there. But now, 1.5 years later, you have apps, you have hardware and pricing. I think next year this time, Android tablets will offer more and have as many quality tablet optimized apps as Apple has now. BUT, that's in a year. If you're buying a tablet now, iPad 2 is the winner. Buy the 16gb and stream all your content from your computer.
