    After all the trouble Samsung have had with their tablet looking so much like an iPad you would have thought other tablet manufacturers would try and do something at least a little different. Reply

    It's a tablet... what "different" is there? Reply

    Oh look another uneducated Apple fanboy.. Thats just so rare!!

    /sarcasm

    There was many tablets before iPad that looked like Apples design. Once again Apple copied.

    Theres the HP Slate, and the JooJoo tablet for a start. Exact same looks, shape and form. Only difference is they're thicker as they didn't use ARM and instead used beefier x86 CPU's.
    Even the old HP TC1100 looked a little like the iPad's form, but pre-dates it by many years.

    Before anyone says it i know the Slate and JooJoo were released later on, but their designs were shown before the iPad. And the TC1100 was released many years before iPad. Reply

    Apple does not have a patent on something as basic as a square device with round corners. This is the upscaled basic shape of smartphones before the iphone. Reply

    Hey boss, maybe if we just flood the market with a bazillion different sized iPad clones, we can somehow steal some market share despite the mediocre OS and no market demand!

    Great idea, Lee!

    I don't understand how people like you are able to hunt/gather enough sustenance to make it through each day. Reply

    Toshiba's support for its existing tablets has been pathetic. The Folio was abandoned and though the Thrive shares similar specs with virtually every other Honeycomb tablet, there is no word from Toshiba on whether it will get the Ice Cream Sandwich update. Mind you, this is for an update that is absolutely necessary to fix a broken, unstable OS (Honeycomb)

    In such a scenario, why should anyone trust Toshiba with another overpriced product?
