If you are 'have to have' the latest iDevice, you are a slave to their marketing.
I have had both an iPhone and an iPad. They were both 'OK', but I found them FAR to restrictive. I like the freedom to build things my way. I don't want to be locked into iTunes or the Apple App Store.
I will take my rooted Samsung Galaxy Infuse (currently running Jelly Bean) over ANY iDevice any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
If you like living in a walled garden Apple products are fairly decent devices. Not withstanding the current issues with maps, no youtube...
Some of us prefer to see what is outside that walled garden. Yeah it might be a little shocking at first, but it is far more satisfying, at least to me, to be able to set up my own garden, and modify at will. I would not prefer to be in the same Walled Garden with millions of others, but that is just me.
I don't work like everybody else. I want my device customized to what I need not set up as Apple thinks best.
I have said it a million times there are certain people (and I work with all types) that will always like Apple. Some people prefer Ice Cream or Jelly Beans. It is neither right or wrong, but you should at least admit where you stand and how you came to stand there.
