Motorola today debuted a teaser video for its Android tablet unveiling at CES event on January 5th:
MacDailyNews Take: Putting the critically-panned Galaxy Tab after the iPad as if it is some sort of evolutionary step is foolish. Yes, chronologically, the Galaxy Tab came after the iPad (it had to, of course; without iPad, there would be no fake iPads from Samsung et al.), but the Galaxy Tab is obviously an inferior, derivative device. We’d have a lot more respect for these me-too wannabe companies if they just came out and gave Apple credit for repeatedly changing everything and providing the models for the rest of the world to follow (personal computer, PDA, portable media player, smartphone, tablet). Of course, Mimicola doesn’t only disrespect Apple, they also don’t respect their potential customers’ intelligence; they think they’re stupid enough to believe that an iPad is “like a giant iPhone” and nothing more than “a giant iPhone” (despite it having no phone at all). The fact is that there are two transformative devices that Mimicola tries to copy nowadays: iPhone and, soon it seems, iPad. Giving credit where credit is due would be the right thing to do, but these amateurs know, subconsciously at least, that they’re trying to knock off Apple innovations, so they are incapable of doing the right thing. They have no shame. It’s sad.
