I have for some reason been acquiring touch screen devices like they were ukuleles.
I have been wanting to do a very brief comparison. They are listed below in the order they're depicted above. I do not actually own the iPad.

|Currently installed OS||Apple iOS 5.1.1||Google Android 4.1.1||BlackBerry Tablet OS 18.104.22.1688||Verizon Android 4.0.4||Cyanogenmod Android 2.3.7|
|Acceptable battery life||x||x||x||x||x|
|Home screen rotates||x||x||x|
|Physical buttons||Power, Volume, Home, Rotate/Mute Switch||Power, Volume||Power, Volume, Play/Pause||Power, Volume||Power, Volume, Home|
|Official means of developing for it are free||x||x||x||x|
|Best thing||Lauren likes DragonVale.||Running ScummVM.||Easily closing apps.||4G LTE.||GPS data logging.|
|Worst thing||Having to scroll to the top of my inbox.||Too big to fit in my pocket.||Finicky power button.||An OS release behind.||Home button lights don't turn off, even when watching videos.|
That's about it.
