iPad 2: From Start to Finish

Andy Ihnatko:

[…] Apple seems to be successfully pursuing the same strategy that works in any streetfight: keep knocking your opponent’s feet out from other him just when he’s about to get up. It doesn’t hurt that they also seem to be the only tablet manufacturer that diligently thinks their designs through from start to finish.

From start to finish, inside and out. The Motorola Xoom, on the other hand:

The Xoom tablet is trim, light, and very pretty … but when you place it next to the iPad 2, it looks as though it was designed and built by angry Soviet prison labor instead of by Motorola.
