Great to see the Tablets getting proper recognition. If they were to stock the ipad,gamestop would be put under enormous financial contracts from Apple no doubt as seen with network carriers contracts with apple

People complain about Apple having enormous contracts with the carriers, but when you look at it in the long run, that's a good plan. It means Apple can dictate the terms and not the carriers. When the carriers have free reign over smartphones, well look at what happens to Android phones like Verizon and Bing. Verizon and bloatware. Verizon and everything else.
I'm glad Apple is refusing to allow them to tamper with their products. If Google would only do the same.

"If Google would only do the same."
It's called the Nexus line.
Apple gives a one size fits all experience. It's consistent but it doesn't always meet everyone's needs. The beauty of Android is that there is choice out there. High end, low end, modified UI's ... you can get what you want.
Carrier crap has been on phones for years, and way before smartphones even existed. It's not hard to get rid of if you're willing to tinker a little. That's always been the case.
Apple has a large jailbreaking community as well, so clearly the one size fits all approach doesn't appeal to everyone there.

Exactly. The Nexus line are fully stocked android. No Custom skins, no bloatware, no bing, just FULLY stocked Android. The Nexus is becoming more and more popular and the Galaxy Nexus will start things for android with a huge bang.

People forget, before Apple came into the wireless scene, the carriers dictated what they wanted and the customers were the losers.
After Apple (that managed to turn the tables on the carriers), the carriers now want their customers to be happy.
Thanks to Apple, it's the customers who win in the end.

Agreed and possibly put games like Dead Space in it.

They won't sell. The prices are too high.
What will sell is the BlackBerry 7" tablet for $299.
