Peter Svensson for the AP (via the Seattle Times):

It took competitors a couple of years to start catching up to the iPhone in a serious way. The gap will probably be shorter for tablet computers, but by getting the iPad right on its first try, Apple has real head start. Maybe I’m trying to justify my purchase here, but I have a strong feeling there isn’t a lot to be gained by waiting for the others to catch up.
