Hey cool... I'd forgot about this post... guess I'll finish it...
I bought a cheap iPad knockoff
It's called a "uPad" hahahahaha. It's the cheapo cheapo one, but it's convinced me that Android pads kinda rock. With a better battery life and a good screen, this thing would actually kinda rock. And I'm sure the more expensive ones have that.... this is the $100 junker model.
Far easier to use than what I'd expected and it comes without all the Apple "NO!, you can't do THAT!" bullshit.
We'll see where the hardware all goes. I could easily switch from the iPhone now that I know the Android stuff is this good.
