I have a new nexus7 AND an Ipad. I'm still very frustrated that my BT keyboard doesn't work with the nexus 7.

That's one reason I like Android.  I've set my wife up with a cute little Sony digicam with 720p video & SD storage, and an Android tablet with a uSD slot and full size USB port.

She can take the uSD card from the camera, remove the micro->full size adapter, stick it into the tablet, and instantly look at her picts & videos on a much bigger screen.

The USB works great with a compact wired keyboard (which is easier for her than a BT one).

Apple & Amazon polish

I'm not a Kindle owner, but I know quite a few -- and I'm pretty sure it's more polished in some ways than the iPad: it'd better have much better integration with Amazon.com (especially Amazon Prime).

I found a number of people using iPads for taking photos while I was on vacation in Italy this summer. I used mine a few times, but mostly I used my Lumix camera with 12x optical zoom. Far superior pcitures.

I've done it. I can shoot picture/video and then edit right there on that device AND enter it into the online system of choice (youtube/blog). That would be a huge pain on the phone.

 

I'd like it if it were easier to get video from a phone or camera onto the ipad and then edit it. I would use a nicer camera then.

yeah, those retina displays are very tempting, but ultimately not enough of a draw for me.

though the two may match up on paper, anyone who has used the two for any extended amount of time will tell you they are very different beasts.  The apple experience is much more polished, and the app store is a behemoth.

even their $20 upgrade was considered very cheap. Going free was a good move on their part.

Admittedly tablets will need this before smartphones and neither one is choking on 32-bit.

It will be interersting to see how/whether Apple gets advantage from being early to this milestone

Good grief, Intel and AMD have been 64bit for ten years now. The sad fact, in the comsumer market, 90% of the apps don't need it and vendors being forced to supply 32 and 64bit versions is unnecessary overhead. The only comsumer app that may benefit from 64bit are video and how well does that work without +4gb of ram?

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
