As an Apple FanBoi (yes, I am!) I LOVE Apple products. But as an enterprise IT person I CRINGE when I have to support BYOD. Apple has NOT adequately addressed the isssue of how to maintian & provision their devices; this is, indeed, the main reason RIM hasn't already rolled over and died.
IMHO, my favorite non-Apple tablet is the Asus Transformer. Besides the build quality and the excellent keyboard, it actually has a touchpad and allows pairing with a mouse; therefore this is a viable laptop replacement (which the iPad is NOT due to lack of a pointing device (I've got my programming and documentation hat on here when I say this).
All this said, I love the new iPad. The only thing better down the pike is when Google Glasses for consumers becomes real (these things have been available for military use for years).
