The battle of the heavyweights has officially been staged – the Apple iPad 2 is the successor to the original iPad, which dominated the tablet segment in the last year, but the new contenders appear with…

Look at you, you smug s**t. You're actually proud of the fact that you use sock accounts to go downthumb all the comments you dislike?
53. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Of course I will give a thumbsdown to all comments that I dislike. Wouldn't you? :)
55. Sniggly (Posts: 7291; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Oh, and one more thing: I generally don't do up or downthumbs unless I spot abuse like yours (using multiple accounts to do so).
52. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
And excuse me. My very first post is on the 3rd page, while your name appears several times on all the pages of this article, and you have the nerve to take notice of me coming back on this thread? Now that's messed. Never call someone a disgusting troll when you are one disgusting troll yourself :)
54. Sniggly (Posts: 7291; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
I'm talking about your appearance coinciding with a rash of 2 to 3 spontaneous downthumbs on "pro Android" comments and 2 to 3 spontaneous upthumbs on "pro Apple" comments. It's too obvious to miss, Gemini. You've been spamming the upthumb/downthumb buttons with sock accounts. How pathetic can you get?
By the way, regarding your earlier elaborations:
Aspect ratio is fundamental to the looks of a device, as it affects the proportions of its dimensions. The iPad/iPad 2 looks boxier than the XOOM from the front, which is how you're going to be spending your time looking at either. Apart from the iPhone button on the bottom, there's nothing adorning the iPad's face either, so it's very much the same front design as the XOOM's.
You're also confusing "customer service" with "product satisfaction." Sure, Apple is highly ranked anyway, but that's not counting the fact that you don't get tech support after the first 90 days of ownership. What the hell is that? What other company will refuse to help its customers after ninety days?
Even if the price is the same, you're talking about only a little bit less money (when comparing prices of computers, a hundred bucks or so isn't as much) for an inferior product to something priced like the XOOM. And we don't even know how the other tablets will do on pricing.
The fact that they were able to do all that for the "upgraded" iPad 2 is diminished by the fact that it's widely known that they could've and SHOULD'VE had all of those features on the original iPad.
On the other hand, in a matter of months, Motorola started from scratch and came up with a winner of a product with only a small price difference when put side by side to the most comparable iPad model.
And the bandwagon approach doesn't work, not even with sales. You are right about there being something 'special," which I've mentioned before: it's called MARKETING. Apple has a kickass MARKETING team.
57. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Well I am not the only ipad user on here. And I can apply your thoughts to you as well mister. And you know why you think that way? Because you are that way. Loser.
Yes, xoom is wider than the ipad2. So what? The ipad2 still looks better OVERALL.
If that no tech support after 90 days is a big deal, how come it did not affect the rating of Apple's customer service? And I never had to call Apple tech support anyway, because my ipad works just fine :) Again, survey shows that Apple users are more happy with their devices than anyone else. Just look at it that way because that sums up everything about Apple's service.
Regardless, for Apple to include all those upgrades and maintain its pricing, is a good thing and an advantage. Inferior? I'd believe that if your xoom would actually sell more than the ipad :) Obviously it didn't and it will not. Is that what you call superior? I don't think so.
Ah so you think that all the upgrades on the ipad2 should've been on the first ipad? Wow. So the ipad2 should be quadcore now then? Lol. Then maybe motorola should've released the xoom 2 years ago. I wonder why they didn't. Lol. Or maybe 4g phones should've been out 2 yrs ago. Or maybe the retina display should've been on the first iphone. I like your thinking. Lol. Or why did Apple release the iphone in 2007? They should've released it in 2006, lol.
Wow, motorola started from scratch. They probably never heard of the first ipad and had no idea that it was doing well, right? Lol.
And stop with the marketing thing already. Google is the advertising company, not Apple. If there's anyone who would be able to market a product better, it should be google, not Apple.

Wow, most of your reasoning is completely flawed...Go figure.
Apples own updates bricked most of their older devices, they told you to learn how to hold your phone differently, just because you didnt have to call tech support doesnt mean other people dont. I deal with these issues on a DAILY basis with customers. I see the problems customers have every single day, you are just basing your BS opinions on some biased online articles you have read.
Sheep, go figure
68. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Oh please, this is my 3rd iphone and it never got bricked. If it did, simply go to an Apple genius bar and they'll replace it with a new one. Awesome huh. Again, don't talk about iphone's imperfection unless you can give me ahone with no flaws whatsoever.
So you do not want us to believe articles and surveys from reputable sources like JD Powers, but you want us to believe you? Wow, you're so smart. Where have you been all these years all knowing one? Lol.
74. DJLegacy2k5 (Posts: 212; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
JD Power just gave an award to Sprint for customer service and no other carrier...go figure...Sorry i dont trust their methods most of the time.
Apple does NOT replace iPhones just for the hell of it, if you didnt purchase their $60 Warranty. If i was allowed to give out customer information I would let you talk to 7 people I have on a list right now that I have been trying to help get their phones replaced by Apple for various MANUFACTURER issues, that they are giving them hard times over, but again, thanks for giving your "personal" (never needed help) BS that you are sharing.
99. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Ummm we shouldn't trust JD Power's methods, but we should trust yours? Nice one :)
Apple does replace units if there's a factory defect on it. You're ignorant. Contact LA iphone repair, they have their customers do it all the time :) Do you want their number? Which repair store do you work at?
144. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
well, if you dont count the lack of camera flash, my vibrant running Bionix is perfect. Fast, great battery, no lag, top end performance specs, S-Amoled screen, tons of memory thats upgradable, replacable battery, insurance, perfectly working flash player and smooth internet experience, and more things to do with it than u can shake a stick at.

If you do tech support you'd know about the major issues android phones have had like constantly having to do master resets and one way audio problems to the point you can't even make calls.
78. DJLegacy2k5 (Posts: 212; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
LMAO, you mean SOME hardware, since their are OPTIONS on Android...Apple makes ONE PHONE per year and they still have a million issues! Your arguement is about low end compared to high end, compared to multiple manufacturers, compared to a company that has only ONE thing to make right!....Again, fail
110. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
So iphone has a million issues? Well android phones have 2 million issues :) You failed again :)
72. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
Are you kidding me about the tech support? Google doesn't provide it at all. You can only reach them by email. Remember all the pissed off nexus customers because they couldn't get ahold of anyone when their phones didn't work. No pc manufacturer offers free tech support unless you buy a warranty just like Apple. Apple doesn't get monthly payments from customers like cell carriers. It's the carriers that offer the tech support for free not the manufacturer. If you work in the industry you should understand that.
76. DJLegacy2k5 (Posts: 212; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
No dumbass, Apple made ATT and Verizon sign contracts stating that ALL tech support is to be directed TO APPLE. Hence why they sell APPLE CARE! Please dont talk when you have no clue what you are talking about. Apple only offers 90 day tech support, and CHARGES for all other tech support by phone or in store.
111. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
And you're the ignoramus asshole who pretends to be smart, but is so retardedly dumb :)
Let me educate you dumbass. Depending on what the customers' issue is, it would either be the carrier or Apple who's going to assist the customer. In simple terms. If it's about their iphone plan, the carrier should be able to assist the customer. If it's about their iphone, then they will be directed to Apple. Understand now slow mo? Lol
77. DJLegacy2k5 (Posts: 212; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Odd, I got free tech support from Samsung and motorola...Odd that NO ONE offers it eh?
56. DJLegacy2k5 (Posts: 212; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
530 and this site are basically the same entity. They go through and bash anything anti-apple because its just like apples marketing. They have to FLOOD everything telling people hwo great they are, because their products arent good enough to stand on their own feet without tv and ads attemping to brainwash you into thinking their crap is worth the money.
They brainwash the weak-minded sheep...the rest of us are too smart for that...Fanboys make fake accounts just to thumbs up and down posts...another point that they are pathetic.
58. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Ummmm, can you please go back the pages and count how many posts between you and me are there? :) If there's anyone flooding the threads here with hateful posts, it is you, and that sniggly. Promoting your less than stellar xoom tab, lol. Ipad sales dwarfs it in comparison.
What's pathetic are people or animals like you who would scold someone for something that you do yourself as well. Now aren't you quite the hypocrite one :)
59. DJLegacy2k5 (Posts: 212; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
I never once mentioned a specific tablet, just like I never metion a certain OS over another. I just state the facts that Apple is a garbage company with poor customer service, normally higher prices, and devices that lack features, but are pretty for all the shallow sheep out there. They need marketing or else their products would do terrible when compared to the newer options out there, just like is happening now with the tablets.
So you can stop your immature BS, it's pathetic and the exact mentality of a Sheeple.
63. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Oh please. You and sniggles are the same kind. He's your friend remember? :)
So you just like to hate Apple then? What does that make you? A garbage :) Don't hate Apple if you cannot afford their devices. And please don't tell me that you do not care to buy Apple devices, because if you don't, then why should you care about their pricing? :)
If Apple products lack features, then why should that bother you? Oh it's because it sells a lot. A lot more than your android tab :) And that pisses you off right? And because you're a sore loser in denial, you use the same cliche "it's a marketing thing" because you cannot accept the fact that Apple products rule :)
You're one bitter android biatch :)
79. DJLegacy2k5 (Posts: 212; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
LMAO @ Affording their products. Im just smarter than to throw away my money on inferior products. This isnt a pissing contest of who's is bigger, but Im pretty sure, I would win this immature contest.
What bothers me is you pathetic sheep that defend shit blindly without backing for your arguements.
What bothers me is Apples lack of customer service options and features and that I spend half of every day working to fix APPLES problems.
What are you like 19 years old, using your iPhone that your job at the grocery store afforded you in 6 months of saving? I mean seriously, you are by far the most immature and uneducated on this site so far.
98. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
And what's your basis when your say "inferior"? Let me guess. You base it on specs alone aren't you? Hahahahaha. And you think you're smart. Well you're not :)
What's more bothersome and more pathetic are illogical haters like you. I have been backing up my arguments. But of course you're too dense to understand :)
What? Apple lacks customer service, yet it wins awards for having the highest rated customer service and user satisfaction. And it lacks so much features that it is outselling its rivals. Nice one smarty pants. You said you spend half of your day fixing Apple's problems? Tell me, do you get paid fixing Apple's problems? If so, shouldn't you be thankful, lol. If not, why do you fix it? Again, you're not a smart person :)
Sorry, but based on logic, you are the immature one. Well you're a hater after all, so what can we expect from a filthy hater like you? :)
64. beatlesfan (Posts: 150; Member since: 03 Mar 2011)
I don't get why you keep bashing Apple's awesome marketing like it is a bad thing? It is NOT misleading, nor is it slanderous (except when Jobs misquotes other CEO's, but that is not marketing). If a company has good marketing and is successful for that marketing then they are doing something right. What is the purpose of a company if it cannot make money?
81. DJLegacy2k5 (Posts: 212; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Who bashed their marketing? Their marketing is amazing, it makes their garbage product seem like the best thing in the world, especially because their products are all always so shiney! They get people to seriously buy into this patheticness and support a company that doesnt give a damn about its customers so much that it wont even allow their ALL GLASS phone to be insured.
112. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Who else Is the hateful basher in here but you mr dummy :)
Apple's marketing is indeed awesome, and of course, match that with awesome devices, Apple is a huge success. It's the device that the users buy, not Apple's marketing strategies. Gosh you are so dumb :) No wonder you're getting a lot of thumbsdown :)
62. beatlesfan (Posts: 150; Member since: 03 Mar 2011)
Honestly, I don't think the specs of any of these tablets are that much above one or another. I used to be an apple hater, but I am starting to respect them for making such quality products. As many people have said before they may not do everything (flash) and may not have the best specs (display, and cameras), but what it has, it does great. I have owned several android devices and like their functionality and over all I like the devices, but I have force closes, automatic reboots and freezing on a daily basis and that is just from texting and occasional browsing, hell would freeze over if I tried to play games and do other tasks my rooted, overclocked droid increible would blow up (I had these problems way before rooting, have exchanged the device multiple times, and have rooted the proper way and run cyanogenmod 7 with a trustworthy rom FYI). I am scared to even listen to music via pandora or any other music without a wall outlet and charger nearby because the battery life is nothing short of piss poor. Having to dim my display down to where I can barely see it so I can actually use my phone for a few hours without it dying sucks, and that's with an extended life battery. Apple's iPhone battery runs circles around my phone (and any smartphone I have ever seen). Back to the tablets, though. The iPad offers a lot that none of the others (the HP may, I'm not sure) offer which is a HUGE (maybe the biggest) selling point to me; netflix. Android seriously needs to step up their game when it comes to this. I truly don't give a shit about flash player I may use it once a day and could go without it, or just pay $5 for skyfire. The beauty of the iPad, paired with awesome battery life and reliability as I know it won't freeze and power cycle when trying to do the simplest tasks makes it the tablet I would choose over any of the others as of now. The Samsung is a close second, but until I see and android device that doesn't have terrible battery life and force close/reboot, etc. I am not buying another device running any form of android OS.

Nice post with intelligent reasons of why you like Apple products. According to dj and giggles that's not possible.
83. DJLegacy2k5 (Posts: 212; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
No i like how you all THINK you know things, but you have NO basis for your statements.
I have NO problem with people like apple products because they find their stripped down, shortcut only, simple, and feature lacking OS to be easy enough for them to use.
That is fine...
I have a problem with people that defend the poor customer service, defend the overly high prices for what you get for the money, and the people that argue that the iPhone is the best thing since sliced bread that offers the MOST amzing features and that NOTHING comes close...because for instance the Moto Atrix crushes the iPhone is every test we have put it against here in the store.
The lack of COMMON SENSE and BLIND following is what I have a problems with.
103. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
Your post makes no sense. You say have no problem with people that buy Apple while in the same breath bashing Apple. Moto Atrix is not even a relevant phone. Do you have people line up around the corner for the Atrix? Lol
113. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Oh, and you think you're the one who knows everything? Excuse me, but you are nothing more than a despicable hater :) A hypocrite too. You said you have no problems with people who prefer Apple products, yet you are in every Apple related article posting unreasonable negative comments and arguing with anyone who likes Apple devices.
Other people's choices are not your problem dumbass :) You are such a dumb biatch :)
118. DJLegacy2k5 (Posts: 212; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Your reading comprehension is that of a 2nd grader, hence there is no point in debating with someone as intellectually challenged as yourself. Your level of understanding is perfectly in-line for a Fanboy.
Pathetic, until you can UNDERSTAND comments you read, please stop responding.
130. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
And your IQ is below zero. Add to that your hateful nature. Geez, you're really in bad shape mister.
Oh I will keep on responding. And there's nothing you can do about it :) Well maybe you can stay away from Apple articles. You hate Apple anyway, right? So that wouldn't be too hard :) Oh I forgot, you're a passionate hater, so you can't :) O I guess I'll see you around :)

I have Droid Incredible. I use it a lot, all the time. I don't have force closes. It's not rooted. I go to sleep with music playing on my phone. It's not connected to the outlet, and it doesn't die. I've never seen it freeze. I don't have to pay 5 bucks for some third party less than perfect browser to be able to browse internet.
i THINK i FINALLY FIGURED OUT WHY IPHONE BATTERY LASTS SO LONG. BECAUSE YOU JUST DON'T USE YOUR PHONE AS MUCH AS WE USE ANDROIDS. Because your iPhone is bland and uninteresting and it only looks good on the outside. So, keep it laying around as a paperweight and enjoy that cool black shiny glass on it. It looks best off and makes battery last too.
94. beatlesfan (Posts: 150; Member since: 03 Mar 2011)
Are you responding to my post? If so I don't think you read it. I own and Incredible, not an iPhone. My incredible has kept me relatively happy minus the force closes, reboots and god awful battery. Of the iPhones I have played with I have noticed substantially better battery life. For example: if I play decide to, lets say play angry birds, I will take my phone off the charger, start playing, and unless my screen is dimmed to 0% where I can barely see it, the battery will only have around a 50% charge within an hour (at best). On an iPhone, however I do the EXACT SAME THING on a better looking display that is fully brightened and the battery may only go down 15-20 percent.

Not everybody can afford premium products. That's why they are premium. Apple is for non persnickety.

Side note: Phone Arena makes me laugh. Not only for the terrible articles they write (not this one), but because of how upset people get over one product or another and the extent to which they argue. Name calling, tag teaming, and even bullying takes me back to the 3rd playground.

NO ONE IS A ANDROID FANBOY....
That is the MAIN point youre missing here. I never once sit here and say ANDROID IS KING, ITS PERFECT!
I just state the millions of flaws with the iPhone and you wack ass fanboys that kiss a shit companies ass for their shit product and shit service.
The only FANBOYS are you here that cant admit the issues with your beloved phone and company.
I openly bash low end android products and anythign else that deserves it...
Im not a FANBOY, Im just a REALIST, that points out the truth about things.
88. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Stated millions of flaws with the iphone? And this article is not even about the iphone. You're trolling has confused you Mr Hater :)
You are one messed up tool. Other people's choices, or even loyalty, is none of your business. It is our money. We earned it. And we will use it to buy whatever device we want. You would only have a say to our decisions if you give us financial support, lol. So why is it that our choices affect you so much? It's because of the fact that our choices is doing better than yours :) And that irks you to the point that you dedicated your pathetic life in hating Apple.
You claim to be a realist. Well be one. Coz reality is, the ipad 2 will even be more successful than the first one, and realistically speaking, there's nothing that you can do about it :)

I'm happy with my iPhone and have no issues with it. Therefore I dont find the need to bash other phones. The reason you do is because you're frustrated that Apple does better than your phone of choice. So you have dedicated your pathetic existence to hating a tech company lol. You could at least hate something that matters lol.
119. DJLegacy2k5 (Posts: 212; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
LMAO @ the iPhone doing better than my Epic, WP7, or Moto Atrix.
I dont look at phones like a popularity contest, hence why you people look so pathetic. You keep arguing that someone care about "our phone does better"? WTF, are you talking about, I dont care about numbers, I know the numbers are there, just like I know the level of intellegence of the average iphone user is about ZERO. That isnt the issue here, the issue is the FANBOYS not the product, you can call me a FANBOY all you want but I use MULTIPLE OS's, so your arguement makes no sense. Again, saying "our phoen is better than yours" has NOTHING to do with the issues I state about Apple, you all choose to ignore the REAL issues, because all you can do is make immature statements that deflect from the topics at hand.
Again, this makes it pointless to argue with Apple fanboys because their level of comprehension and intellegence are WELL BELOW the levels of being able to handle a debate on the FACTS and real issues.

Those phones are doing better in what? Sitting in a warehouse? If they're so great why is no one buying them? Do you realize that iPhones and iPads are becoming very popular in the corporate world. Doctors are using iPads to help with treating patients. I'm sure theyre below average intelligence as you claim. What an idiot.
131. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Who cares however you look at phones. Why does it always have to be about you? Lol.
You don't care about numbers? Well you should, coz that's how most things are determined. If iphone users IQ is about zero, then yours will surely be way below zero :)
The issue here are haters like you. The guy never said the his iphone is better than anyone else's, so you're hate is causing you to hallucinate. All phones have their shortcomings. And yes, even the iphone. But some shortcomings are tolerable to other users, some are not. So choose the device whose shortcomings ate tolerable for you.
Don't impose yourself on other people you do not know. That's dumb :) Oh well, you are dumb, so.

96. protozeloz (Posts: 5387; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
I think this.
-Android Is Currently the Number One selling OS
-iPhone is the Number One selling Phone
They both have their good and bads As we humans continue to work on our platforms
Now One sole reason why the Ipad 2 shouldn't be on the main list its because it may not be a full product, just something In the middle... will that make the iPad2 bad or a bad decision if you end up buying it? you judge that depending on your desire but again the tab market is young and unlike the phone market this time companies seem to be more ready.
shouldn't you buy that tablet? I say go ahead, but i highly recommend you play with it a little and see if you are really gonna find some use to it (I Know is your effing money but i hate to see people buy a gadget because its cool and have it tossed away few weeks latter gathering dust... THATS A SIN *****), also check the competition. I the en the winner of a good choice is the user.
The Xoon can be an option too since it seems the device may not be considered obsolete that fast and its got Google to back it up, as it its its "Nexus Tablet"(I think) so far... and with, but also could have some annoying things, like no LTE from the start (yeah they where drunk that day) and No support for SD card(I correct Drunk and High), but it got here for the same reason the iPad2 got out... Tablet market is not defined yet
WEB OS?????? no coments here
and why no playbook there? it can also be a good option for a more pocket sized tab
but ladies this is not the year of the tablet... its 2012 go spend money and find cool uses for them but the real test drive starts on 2012(please kill the notebook )
101. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
Huh? Last time I checked, the number selling OS is still Symbian. See, your true android colors came out :)
Android took over symbian in the smartphone class, but symbian is still by far #1. But yes, the #1 selling SMARTPHONE would be the iphone IN ITS PRICE CATEGORY. The #1 overall is stil Nokia (for now).
What? The ipad2 is not a full product? Are you making your own definitions now of what a tablet should be? Lol. The ipad is too big not to be included in the main list. Yeah, let's not include the ipad in the main list, but let's just compare every freakin new tablet that comes out to it.
So you think that 2011 is not the year of the tablet? Ummmm, between you and Stevie, I'd rather take Stevie's words. Well unless of course you are a CEO of a company bigger than Apple, then maybe I would believe you more :)

well since we where talking about hight end smartphones and tablets i thought i didn't needed to add the word smartphone but i guess people are to dumb to figure that out... my bad in believing you actually had a brain net time I'll make sure i add the word thanks
and my android colors came out? did it took you that long to see my currently OS preference is android? because I think half phonearena knows that, a click on my profile will give you an idea of some of the devices I currently have, thanks for checking.
why do I think the iPad 2 feels not full? simple, I've being told that they will make another pad around fall, now that coming from a company that makes a smartphone/tablet a year I feels kinda odd and I (Me, This person Here, The One typing this) Feels kinda odd with this... this is why I think its not going to be a full apple product
now the current Idea of tablet is more considered to be a LUXURY tool more than anything else now with further technology development (expected to be ready by fall this year) now Tabs with 2x 3x the curent power may start to take serious netbook space (and some laptop why not?) thats why i think 2012 will be more worthy of being called the year of the tablet, you don't have to take my word... I'm not someone with that money... yet CEO's give their opinion witch could be right or wrong, only time will tell

Not trying to be rude, but your English and grammar needs a lot of work. It seriously takes away from any argument you may have. I understand occasional typos but there is no excuse for typing in jibberish.

Of course I already knew. I just wanted to make the obvious more obvious.
So you base your judgment on what you have heard? And you think your smart that way? Apple released the first ipad in April last year. What makes you think they will release it in the fall of this year? Oh yeah, because a little birdie told you, lol. So what woukd make the ipad2 a full product then? My goodness. Some people. They think they know better than Apple.
It is this year, not last year, or next year, that tabs are being released left and right by all the players, and it's still the year of the tablet for you? Lol. When will it ever be the year of the tablet for you? Stores and manufacturers are releasing their tabs this year, and it's still not the year of the tablet for you. But for sure it's the year of the rabbit, lol.
