Yep for what he does, the Touchpad is perfect: Gmail, Maps, Docs, Youtube and Plus are things that I use on a daily basis that the iPad 2 does not do well.

It would seem the public is looking for more than just a giant portable web browser. I keep seeing the flash reference, but know one has yet to offer an explanation as to why flash, an important part of the "web experience" is lacking on one tablet, which happens to be the best seller, and other tablets which offer flash have dismal market penetration. How can all these iPad "sheep" survive without flash? Why is a non flash device dominating the tablet market going on two years running? The ipad is selling to all walks of life and various income levels. Are all these people just duped? Is Apple that good at brainwashing an entire planet, 'cause right now the iPad is the best selling tablet on the planet.
