DISCUSSION

Apple move was quite idiotic. As S.Jobs would have said: Android market is "fragmented" and their tablet have to fight for notorioty. Now Apple, who has huge notority, steps in and basically gives blessing to its main competitor.

Apple used to behave like "other makers don't even remotely compare", now they go by "Samasung tablet is -somehow- a threat to the Ipad". Great so I know which tablet I need if I want an Android.

Seriously, either it was Jobs demented hubris or someone in Apple legal team working for Samsung.
