To preempt the inevitable fanboi-responses... yeah, this tablet has lower specs (and Android 1.6 instead of 2.x -- although it's ALREADY been rooted and had 2.1 put on I guess..) But the reviews say the browser runs fine, apps run fine, and it'll play youtube vids. Given Apple doesn't give the choice of buying a lower-spec IPad I think the direct price comparison is valid.
