just asking me that. what do you think?
# LOL. Hope u aren't seriously asking this. Let me go get some popcorn before other people post.
No. Just... no.
Are you serious?
How did Apple open iPad with Windows?
I can't even figure out what you're trying to ask.

I think that's ridiculous. Would you want them to?
I think that you've ingested something that's impaired your judgment.
If you are asking whether or not Apple will allow Android to run on the iPad the answer is absolutely, unequivocally no.
Ok good it's not just me.
You better just get the android tablet.
I think he is trying to draw comparison between Apple allowing Windows to be installed on Macs and the possibility of Android being allowed to be installed on iPads. Since i understand what your asking,Im really the first person to say, NO. Its sincerely different for many reasons.
one word. NEVER.
One more word. WHY?
Yes I THINK that is what the OP is asking. Poorly worded question. Frankly why would you want to do this? The only reason Apple opened up Windows on Macs is because much of the software written for Personal Computers is not available on Macs, but only in Windows. However, in the tablet realm, the opposite is generally true. More software titles are available for iOS than Android (although that gap is closing) and the only software that isn't available via iOS but on Android are items that do not meet App Store guidelines.
yeah and then they are gonna license mac osx to dell
Will they let the iPad boot Android just like they let the Mac boot Windows?
Why would they do that? Where is the average user going to get a copy of Android to install anyway? You can't just go out and buy Android install disks.
Regardless, isn't there already an Android port to iDevices?
I can understand your point here but the same is valid of the other 90% who come across these types of threads day in and day out. Considering that this is a general use thread, people do not sometimes feel the need to play nice. I have been banned a time or two after being frustrated with users who fail to use the search features, or who start redundant threads, or who take a passive aggressive stance by starting an argument and then running to a mod when called out on it.
I wish you could put iOS on an Android tablet not the other way around!
I think other manufacturers would actually kill for being able to put iOS on their tablets!
What is the upside? What is the downside?
The downside is that one is making a device much more complicated. You're also risking corruption of the iOS data and programs. Another downside is the development cost of making the Android OS available on the platform.
The downside from Apple's POV is that it would undermine the simplicity and elegance of their product to offer a dual-boot.
What's the upside? I don't know. I suppose there are wonderful apps that are unique to the Android platform, but it's typically the other way around.
I see no upside for Apple to offer this.
lol no f---king way
I would like to see a windows 8 port for the iPad though, that would be interesting.
I like my iPad the way it is, but wouldn't mind seeing it done.
The OP isn't being that unreasonable when you think about it. Maybe one day, when both OSs are more advanced, it'd actually be a good idea.
Problem is, like someone else already mentioned, when it comes to apps, iOS is the winning beast. We have 1) quality, and 2) quantity. There wouldn't be many reasons to put Android on your device at this point in time.
Maybe one day, if Android starts getting all the apps first, we'd be back where we are with OS X and Windows. But I don't know if I see that happening.
