Why should I not buy an iPad?


Likes # 0

I've been a happy Android user for several years now, with my HTC Desire phone. I'm now looking for a tablet computer, and initially thought I'd go for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, partly because it runs Android, which I'm used to, and partly because it gives Apple a good run for the money.

But, with the new Apple iPad having such a better screen resolution than all the opposition (twice as many pixes in each direction), I'm thinking I should go for it instead. Any good reason why I shouldn't? My main uses will be reading books via Kindle, managing my email via WiFi, playing Angry Birds, and mapping. Is the mapping that comes with iPad as good as, or better than Google's that I get on my phone, and does the WiFi only version not have GPS? Lack of GPS would be a show-stopper for me, which would force me to buy the "cellular" version if I were to go for the iPad.
