You design a car. You design shoes. You design a GUI. You design a Universe. You do not design a box. Apple does not have the exclusive rights to minimalism and by the nonsense I see in every "Smart phone" or tablet online discussion, it's no shocker that the majority of people are complete idiots who judge books, or in this case tablets by their covers. All the hardware is the same with minor difference, build quality is a joke played on the willfully ignorant. I have come to accept this and will Pander to the LCD in the same fashion that has attained apple the status of best at what's been done before.

Mr. Chandna, I recommend adding a note somewhere on that picture that it's a render, like they did in the article you link to.  You might get SOME intelligent comments that way, and a few less "they copied the ipad" posts.

Google got the same "Copy Apple" disease as Microsoft..

Copy the iPhone, Copy the App Store, Copy multitouch, Copy the iPad, copy Copy COPY!!!

This is pathetic. Wish they would go back to being a "search engine."

Thankfully they didn't copy things like a failed antenna design, lack of USB, lack of Flash, lack of true multitasking, and having everything tied to their money-grubbing shopping portal.

This tablet is rumored to be made by HTC, Google is just the software platform. I'm pretty sure google still is a search engine, the best one on the internet by a wide margin actually. It's hard to call it copying when trying to launch a competing device on a similar platform. Whether you're an apple fanboy or not (which you clearly are) you should want other companies to compete with them in order to drive the innovation. Otherwise your beloved apple has no incentive to innovate and their products will become stagnant.

My tablet is the Dream Machine 2010. Put it in a trash compactor until it's a quarter of an inch thick.

How about the 2012 dream machine in a trash compactor?

Now this is something I am going to keep an eye on.  I like the tablet concept as a take along device but I did not like what apple did with the iPad by not supporting flash. If I take a device with me I want full functionality.

It looks like a skinnier (and possibly bigger) iPad. Come on HTC, show some originality.

HTC hasn't even released any specs, they certainly didn't release that picture.  I would bet that that was created by MaxPC staff for the purposes of this article or one like it.  It's obviously a photoshopped ipad.  Come on, get your head in the game.
