My wife may have destroyed her iPad 1. Sooooo, as per the subject. I'm not throwing in any self thoughts to keep it neutral to start.

My boss really likes his Galaxy Tab now that the screen bubbling issue has been resolved. He got one of the earlier models that had an issue where the top layer of glass would slightly delaminate from the lower layer if the screen got too hot, leaving a visible moire/bubble pattern on the screen.

I respect my boss, but I like the i-side of things.

There are plenty of articles like these below that go into a lot detail comparing these specific models. For the most part very similar.

If you plan to use an type of earbuds or low impedance full sized headphones with the iPad, it is known to have an output impedance that is a bit on the high side @4.4 ohms.

I have an (original) Motorola Droid that I've been using for at least a couple years.

My wife has an iPad 1. I have an iPad 2.

I haven't played around much with Android Tablets.

From my experience, I can't imagine forsaking my iPad. That thing changed my whole outlook on Apple. Android just doesn't seem to deliver what I want with the same ease and elegance that the iPad does.

If Mrs. Murphy LIKED her iPad, I'd be really effing sure what I was getting into by asking her to switch to an Android Tablet. What's your margin, there?

I'm thinking the upcoming Kindle Fire will satisfy my own tablet needs. Of course, my tablet needs are minor, and I already use Amazon.com A LOT. I'm hoping it's tied really well into the cloud storage. I just wish they supported FLAC for the music storage. But yeah, it seems well-designed and at the right price point for me right now. I'd consider a higher-end one if they offered that, though!

I wasn't going to chime in until the post was quiet but I want to assure you Tom that I am smart enough to claim no controlling interest in this potential switch. She saw a Galaxy Tab at work and thought it "looked nicer"

The most I will get involved in her decision is to take her to Future Shop and encourage her to play with both to see which she finds more intuitive. This may be unfair to the Tab, considering she is already familiar with the iPad interface but although I promised her she could decide for herself, I want her to at least base it on something more than "looks nicer".

You have to remember, her first comment/question when she opened her gift of the original iPad was "Did it come with a nice bag". By bag she meant case..... I think.

It is no secret that I am not an Apple fanboy, but if your wife had an iPad, it would probably the easiest transition for her to go to an iPad 2, even if it isn't the greatest hardware machine, and one could argue that the Galaxy Tab interface is just as good. Different (IE: "not Apple") doesn't mean that it is bad. Heck, my wife uses an iPad 2 at work, but has an Android tablet at home that she loves. She actually prefers the Android tablet since she has an Android phone, so apps are the same.

Of course, with Android, you aren't stuck with the stupid Apple iStore or whatever. I hate how much Apple software is always running in the background on my computer just for the times that my kids happen to plug in their iPods.

But again, ease of transition for her would probably be the iPad 2.

Let's leave pejoratives out of the discussion.

Have you measured the impact these three processes have on your computer when iTunes isn't running or when no Apple device is connected?

If your wife does a lot of web browsing on flash based websites that in and of itself could be enough to make the switch.

For the most part you are comparing two of the most similar tablets on the market out there. With the exception of iOS vs Andriod, flash etc. I find that the Samsung galaxy is actually better looking and sleeker than the iPad 2. It's also a bit thinner and lighter. I hate the proprietary connections on both. Your wife probably doesn't care.

Oh, Peter, you and your "measure".

iPad 2 is meaningfully smaller than the first generation, which might help with the "looks nicer" part.

I got this leather Yoobao case and I love it. Very high quality leather and stitching, and it adds virtually no weight or dimension to the device.
