I don't understand what problem does apple has with the downloads of users, if user is downloading thorough network he will be responsible to pay more related to his use

No wonder so many apps on Android have their own download management, they can't also publish on iOS without it.

Google just gives developers the option to recommend WiFi when downloading (asks user), typical tyrannical Apple.

2. X10 mini is not the only option provided if you want an android smartphone.

3. X10 mini is a completely different niche. X10 mini pro is also there of someone finds typing on such a small screen difficult.

4. I already consulted a doctor. Actually my father is a doctor!!

However, the difference is that the various VHS and Beta machine manufaturers didn't keep running to the nearest court rooms to stop competitors being more innovative and hence more competitive in the market place. Each to their own is fine by me but if Apple want to keep running to the nearest couut room then may they get everything they deserve.

After all every other manufacturer (Symbian, Windows or Android) gives you a choice of screen sizes. That wouldn't fit in with their bully boy antics! You will have what we ssy you will have and tough luck if you don't like it!

Reading page after page of your comments, I would like to add my opinion.
If we're talking about specs, there's no arguing ASUS wins hands down.
The Retina display is nice but on a 10.1 inch screen you cannot make use of the over kill in resolution. The battery life is still great on the new IPAD, but with the optional keyboard that provides the additional power boost, ASUS hold's it own again.

Where apple has an edge is in it software,because of the way it takes full advantage of the hardware provided. That advantage however is diminishing as an open OS with "multiple" hardware devices coming from "multiple" hardware vendors will force innovation (remember what happened with VHS and BETA..)

To every fandroid or apple-head ask yourself what are the REAL differences(hardware & software)between the previous model tablet.

People will squabble because of pride, but in this case you have to be logical.

This is different to what Apple have just done. Apple are concerned about peoples data plans so they dont go over it.

Mandroid fans need to pipe down on apple posts.
