But how many of them serve business people, designers, engineers, programmers, animator, artists, doctors? You know....you still need a MacBook to develop software for an iPad but Windows itself is the world's most powerful platform.

So iOS is really a tiny little girl's toy to Windows.

I guess you can DEVELOP apps on other operating systems but there's no way you can publish it on the App Store. You need OSX for that.
Unless you hack something.

But we were talking about development and it is POSSIBLE!

"...but there's no way you can publish it on the App Store."

I don't know about that much, but I think it is possible to.

No there's no legal way of publishing apps on the AppStore. Positive about that.

What's the point of an SD card slot when you can't have file access to it?

Windows Surface with Intel CPU for productivity and programming.

Apple iPad for Photo viewing and basic gaming (i cannot use a joystick so i don't play serious game with this such as GTA3/Max Payne/Shadowgun).

Asus Nexus 7 for everything else. And has the best price/performance-features compared to the other two. And also has build in the most advanced Mobile OS.
