As usual for geek commentards, the "user experience" was not considered as a metric. For Apple, this is the only metric that counts, and that is why they sell so many iPads.
Having used the Transformer (and crashed it), other Android devices and the iPad 2, I can tell you which one I would prefer, and it is a no-brainer.
Until Android gets past the geekiness and quality issues with both the underlying OS and the application market products, it will always play 2nd fiddle to iOS(5), simply because the package on an iPad2 is still way better - and when selling consumer devices to consumers that is what counts.
Selling gadgets to geeks is a different story, and I am sure the Transformer will do well in that market because the current model is not half bad and the new one will be better (but that is true of every product) - but as a consumer device, it is 2nd tier compared to the iOS based products.
Consumers do not give a rat's arse about which company made the compressor in their refrigerator or who made the CPU in their TV. They just want it to do "what it says on the box" when they fire it up (keep the beer cold and show the footy respectively). That is the nature of consumer devices. iPads are consumer devices and up until now, Android tablets have not shown themselves to be successful as consumer devices.
