You can get an adapter for just about any port needed. If you ask me, it's better to connect tablets wireless anyways.
I wouldn't do an Android tablet. That's just me. The platform and apps are just not there. I tried several other platforms before I settled on the iPad. It really is the best tablet platform on the market. To the point, I worry about them becoming a monopoly in the space. Other platforms are just not selling that well. Hopefully Windows 8 changes this.

I still think that’s a big if, though, and wouldn’t be surprised in the least if this year’s iPhone ships with a good old-fashioned 3.5-inch 960 × 640 display."
Good old-fashioned 3.5 inch 960 x 640 display. I want to punch this fanboy in the fucking throat. Never once has he acknowledged that a 4" screen would be an improvement. It's like he has to defend a 3.5" screen incase Apple doesn't make the move.
The guy is a raging fanboy sometimes, but I think he is largely right here. The iPhone is the best selling smartphone in the world. Apple does not really need to go any larger. It's not like they are hurting in sales.
I do think they will hit 4 inches this time, but not any larger. We disagree on this, but these Android phones are getting way to big these days. Apple would be stupid to get caught up in the screen size war. Better they keep focusing on usability and customer experience.
