Well, we must have very different usage styles.

Every time I open a new window and the stupid thing does its bizarre slow animation of zooming out and zooming in, wasting 3 seconds of my time and not even starting to load the new page until it is finished I feel like throwing the thing at the wall. Then at some point I hit the maximum number of open windows and it won't open any more. It's just an exercise in frustration.

I actually prefer to use my Nexus One, even with it's tiny screen, over the iPad.

Apple hardware launches are like game launches, they have a huge legion of fans that buy anything they make which means huge upfront sales that don't hold. Apple will not sell 1 million iPads per month. Comparing a hardware launch month to regular sales (for an entire class of hardware no less instead of an individual item) is apples and oranges right off the bat.

Didn't Apple say it sold 300,000 iPads in the first day (projected 700,000 by analysts)? That would mean they only sold another 600,000 in the remaining 30 days.

Day 1: 300k
Days 2-30: 20k per day average.

48 million netbook units per year is ~131,000 per day, average. A straight average, while Apple's is a curve from the launch.
